MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null 4.5 5 116 116
I'm not one to fall in love with makeup, but... I have been bothered by rosecea for as long as I can remember. No one has ever admired my skin. That is, until I started using Bare Minerals. My daily makeup routine is concealer, foundation, blush and Mineral Veil. Now, I get frequent compliments from friends, acquaintances...even my doctor! And they don't say they like my makeup. They tell me my complexion looks wonderful, which is even better. It tells me that my face looks natural...only better! When I'm wearing Bare Minerals, I feel confident that my face is looking its best. 05/01/2015
The Greatest Makeup! I have been using this makeup since I was in my 30's and now I am in my 50's. It goes on wonderful and covers any dark spots. It is not oily so it doesn't clog your pores and show off your wrinkles. You can not go wrong with this line of makeup. It applies easily and last all day. I love that it is all natural! I sleep with it at night and does not damage my skin it is still soft and smooth. They have such a large assortment of colors. I wish they still carried the Buxom lipstick it was so tingly on my lips and was so beautiful on! 04/23/2015
Great finish Great product. Takes away all redness for a light coverage. This is not a full coverage foundation, however the lightweight feel is nice to have on days when skin is senesitve or you don't want to wear lots of makeup. Personally, this doesn't last me all day because I am really oily, but for the first couple of hours it looks amazing and feels lightweight/ shear. Try this for a powder foundation. It is great to have in your kit! 04/22/2015
Looooooovvvveee Love this product. I have bought the entire collect from concealor to mascara. I am a bare for life customer. 04/11/2015
Amazing Product I love the color and matte finish. I have very sensitive skin and can't wear anything else without a massive breakout. Hypoallergenic, fantastic coverage and the only foundation I will ever buy again. 04/11/2015
Very Natural Looking I have used this for years, then I switched to the new Liquid foundation for a year, didn't like at all. It caked on my face, was messy, needed a special powder which also caked. Just went back to the powder and all is good again. Love, Love it! 04/08/2015
Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 I love this foundation goes on amazingly! It give me the coverage I need. I have uneven skin tone by using a little extra it give me the look I like without that cake on look. I received so many compliments saying "how beautiful I look" this is the foundation for me. 03/30/2015
Best foundation! I was really nervous trying this. I'm so used to drug store liquid foundation and switching to a loose mineral one was a big step for me. It took a while to get used to the whole buffing motion, but with practice and watching youtube tutorials, I got the buffing down. Now my make up looks like my skin. My break outs are going away and I couldn't be happier! I love this stuff! It's a must have! 03/28/2015
Best Foundation I have super oily, sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. I usually prefer using liquid foundation as it provided coverage of my blemishes the best...until a friend gave me a sample of her Bare Minerals Matte Foundation. I noticed an almost immediate difference in the amount of oil on my face at the end of the day. Granted, I do still have a sheen when I finish work but it is noticeably less pronounced than before I started Bare Minerals. Also, the condition of my skin has improved considerably with fewer breakouts. The coverage is surprisingly good considering that it is a powder, it covers about as well as a liquid but feels like there is practically nothing on your face. I have since tried several other Bare Minerals products and have been very pleasantly surprised. The blush, lip gloss, and mineral veil have all been excellent quality. This may be the best face makeup I have ever used and believe me, I've tried them all! 03/24/2015
Must have! This is one of my "must haves" before I leave the house! I suffer from acne prone/oily skin and this product does not aid the acne. It last majority of my work day 0800-1630. If I go out after work I typically touch up for a re freshened look! The matte does help tame the oiliness for the part! I only wish there was a recycle program for these products because I use them religiously! 03/20/2015

Details: 
I've never had this with any other make-up foundation and I have used the same liquid primer for almost 10 years now. I love the way this product makes the rest of my skin look and feel but it is so frustrating and embarrassing to deal with. Also, I do not have the gathering of make-up in my smile lines when I simply wear a primer foundation so I know it has to be the matte finish that is causing this issue. Thank you in advance BM.

A: 
really any age! Perfect for pre-teens and adults. This foundation doesn't have any harsh ingredients in it that can cause acne like some drugstore foundations. Your skin actually changes a lot with this makeup. It's smoother, softer, and doesn't clog your pores. The mineral veil really seals in the powder foundation. It absorbs oil and it's great to have if you get oily throughout the day.

A: 
Absolutely it is safe for them to use. I dont recommend it at all for though. Its very gentle on the skin but it is not great for acne. I have bad bright red acne sometimes cysts. It covers but looks very unnatural and cakey if you need quite a bit of coverage. I suggest if you do purchase it to make sure to use primer and some form of green cream to reduce the redness. I find using a concealer specifically on the bumps helps too.

I started using makeup in 6th grade at age 12 and even though I am still in my teens, this makeup is one of the best I have used (and I have tried a lot).
It feels and looks natural and I have many allergies and sensitive skin.
Their finishing powder is also light and great.
No matter what age this is a great makeup brand and better than a lot of those heavier and less natural foundations out there.

Yes I believe so! The Matte may be a bit darker but it is hardly noticeable! When I went to get my shade match in the store the artist tried on both and told me that they look the same on me. (Medium Beige) The only real big difference is the finish between Matte and Illuminated.

Yes, they are the same color, with Mattes just not having a that "glowy" look (from the mica in the Original). The Matte may be a teeeennnyy shade darker, but not enough to need a whole new shade.

Hope this helps!

I have had acne for a good portion of my life. This foundation has never made my face break out (milk actually contributes to my acne so I switched to almond milk), however, this make up really helps cover the discoloration caused by acne. Once my face cleared up after switching milk, I love this make up even more! I get comments all the time about my skin and I know it's the make up that makes it glow! It it not oily or heavy. It is actually quite light and I believe the ingredients are listed on the site. No oil that I know of!

I have had oily, sensitive skin prone to breakout nearly all my life. I wish that Bare Minerals had been established decades ago. Bare Minerals products do NOT clog my pores or break out my skin, unlike so many other brands that even claim to be non-comedogenic, even those very expensive brands. I had to stop wearing makeup years ago until I tried Bare Minerals. I use the Matte Foundation along with the primer for oily skin which keep my skin looking and feeling good all day. I also use the Exfoliating Cleanser (a powder) which does not irritate my sensitive skin. Hope this helps.

Is the color right for you, are you using a primer and a finishing powder?
If not, I would get a color that matches your neck and your body.
Also make sure to use primer and to use a finishing powder. I have oily skin, and even this brand gets oily on me, but with the mineral veil its still matte.
I use the matte foundation (powder) which is nice and light and good for oil skin. I wouldn't use a liquid foundation for oily or sensitive skin.
Apply with a flat brush in a circular motion which evens out the tone, and make sure to do the makeup down your neck as well. Then use a powder brush to apply a finishing powder.

I have the oiliest skin on the planet so I can relate. I use sephora silicone free primer after cleansing my skin. Then I apply a layer of mineral veil to my entire face, concentrating on the t-zone. I then apply my matte BM foundation, concealer, blush..etc. I add another layer of mineral veil and voila shine free for a couple of hours at least lol. Mineral veil is perfect for touching up through out the day too!

I had the exact same problem a little while ago (I am 14). I went without makeup for about two weeks before I got super self-conscious about the redness on my face. First of all, your face could be a little red due to sun. Even though it's winter, I wear sunscreen EVERY day to protect my skin. SPF is a life saver. I wear Shiseido Oil Free Urban Environment Sunscreen. It's not oily and doesn't make your skin white. If you wear this, and then a light powder, you should feel confident without feeling like you're wearing a mask. That's what I do! I wear sunscreen under a little powder (BareMinerals Matte Foundation) and I am good to go! My friends say that it looks super natural and that they can't tell that I am wearing makeup! I hope this helps :)

A: 
Please don't go without makeup, because good makeup, like Bare Minerals, helps to protect your skin from negative effects of the environment, such as air pollution, sun damage, very dry air and cold weather to name a few. I have had very oily and sensitive skin nearly all my life, and Bare Minerals is the best I have used for my skin. To start I always wash my hands before I touch my face. Cleaning my very oily skin is important, and Bare Minerals has good treatment products for oily skin. I especially like the Exfoliating Cleanser which does not irritate my also sensitive skin. Before applying makeup I use the primer for oily skin - I don't use a lot either. I slightly wet my fingertips with water to help smooth on the primer. Then I apply the Matte Foundation powder with a clean brush. This combination keeps my oil in check for nearly all day.

With this kind of a product you want to use a shine free(oil free) primer first before putting this on. Also, use the matte version to help with the shine. With this product, less really is more. Start with a little and it should form to your face. This is what i do. Hope this helps.

A: 
Make sure you cleanse first, use a moisturizer ( oily controlling is good like the combination skin moisturizer by bare essentials), use the foundation primer. Then apply. If it looks like a mask you are likely applying it too heavy. You may want to find a boutique or sephora store to color match you. Also when you load the brush it is important you tap out the excess so it does not cake on when you apply it.

A: 
First, if you are not wearing a primer, you probably should. This is the number one problem most people have when it comes to makeup-meltdown. Second, start off with a tiny amount of foundation and build on your coverage. Third, make sure you set it with Mineral Veil, a lot of people think that this does not make a difference but it really does! After this step, you can use a setting spray to lock in everything if you think this won't be enough. And finally, if all else fails, you may want to try plan B:) hope this helps and good luck!
