I love this matte loose foundation! It keeps my face looking fresh longer; I tend to look shiny halfway through the day with the original foundation.

Wonderful product. Addresses the issue of combination skin while providing SPF protection.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Britt1027 Wonderful Foundation!
The mineral foundation in Matte is great for my oily and sensitive skin! I love that it covers well and looks natural. I use the golden tan shade and it matches my warmer tan skin tone great! I use the full flawless face brush and swirl inside the lid for around 15 seconds and then begin buffing the foundation on my face. I suggest starting with just a little product and then adding more as needed for full coverage.

I love this foundation. It's lightweight, covers well and when I'm done with my morning regiment I look just like me, only a little better. I have extremely sensitive skin and am prone to breakouts, but since switching to BareMinerals I have not had any of the issues I used to have with different brands. I feel the point of makeup is to look like you aren't wearing any, you just look great naturally and this product does that for me. Won't go back to traditional makeup ever.

I don't ever write reviews but I always read them! I felt I needed to write a review because i love this product so much & have spent $$$ over the years trying to find something I liked.I have to say I love and will be a forever customer of BM's! I have very oily skin/large pores & have to apply powder throughout the day. Since getting my BM's makeup my face looks great all day! I have medium to light colored skin and here's what I got that matches perfect to my skin tone & the coverage is awesome! The prime time primer,matte finish foundation in golden medium, concealer (very important if you want a flawless look) in bisque, the mineral veil tinted. I'm using the tinted veil now because I have a tan, but if your not tan you may want to use the original. It's not super dark but it will give you some color. I also got the concealer brush which is awesome & I use the heavenly brush to apply the makup. I just ordered some eye shadow, eyeliner & mascara hopefully they are as good as the other makeup! Hopefully this review helps you!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Just as good coverage as the Bare Minerals liquid!
I was a bit iffy at first when deciding whether or not to buy this product, because I know how powders can be: you have to keep re-applying them throughout the day, they don't get as much coverage, etc. However, this product was very surprising. Not only did it have just as much coverage for me as the Bare Minerals liquid, but it stayed on all day! All day as in it lasted for me throughout a 10am- 10pm trip to Universal Studios. So, yeah, I'd say it works pretty great!
Rated 5 out of 5 by WaxhawLinda Great foundation for oily, acne-prone skin
I switched to Bare Minerals because of the original foundation. I liked the powder - it stayed put all day. Then when Ready came out, I switched to it and was again, very pleased. Recently a sales associate mentioned that MATTE Foundation was the best of both products - and she was right. This really knocks out the shine my face gets over time and also does a great job of covering acne breakouts.

I get so many compliments that it doesn't look like I'm wearing makeup but if I didn't they would really notice and think Scary! That's the point really. If they think I'm not wearing makeup, it's perfect for me. I'm way past the cakey makeup. The entire product line allows for natural or dramatic. Perfect! Expensive but it does last a while. Just be sure you have a good brush that doesn't promote waste. Keep your brushes clean weekly or so. Use shampoo and conditioner on your brushes - additional advice I guess.
Rated 5 out of 5 by melchic Will never go back to other foundation!
I used this product years ago and changed thinking I would save some money. Tried several "mineral" foundations you can buy at the drugstore and none were comparable. I even tried an expensive department store liquid foundation to cover redness to my face that developed as I got older......made my face breakout at age 45! Went back to bareMinerals and gave a deep sigh of relief......beautiful and covered my redness....and no breakouts! I will never leave again.
Rated 4 out of 5 by gmes The colors are wrong, but the finish is great with new brush
I've been wearing BareMinerals for 12+ years. I love the loose minerals and was so excited when the matte finish launched. The colors have always been off-too yellow and too pink. I had given up on it until recently when I bought the Beautiful Finish brush. I got the email about what brush to try with each foundation formula and decided to re-visit Matte. Even though I can't get a perfect match, the Beautiful Finish brush applies this foundation so perfectly, I'm wearing it anyway. It doesn't budge during the humidity and wears all day with NO necessary touch ups. As a mom, I don't have time to worry about my makeup and I love the way the finish looks-even the end of the day. Try it with the new brush, you won't be disappointed!

Bare Minerals matte foundation works so well....I don't need much and it barely looks like I have any makeup on!
Rated 4 out of 5 by vsgreen Love this Product
I have been using this product for two years now. I really like it and will continue to use Bare Minerals products because they're lightweight and natural. However, I've noticed the power doesn't last that long and can leave my skin a bit oily. Still like the product though because it's so easy to use!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Tatex0x0 It's Okay
This product probably isn't one of bareMinerals' best products. I definitely prefer liquid foundation; it's just that powder foundations settle into pores and creases in the skin, therefore making them more visible. I still like this product and will use it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AlterEgoTSwift Great, especially for warmer weather
I bought this in anticipation of summer's hot, humid weather. When I first apply it, my face feels a bit tight and looks flaky. As the day goes on, however, I'm glad I'm wearing it. If I do have flakes, I sweep a bit of Original Mineral Veil over, and that helps. I use Fairly Light, the same shade I wear in the Original Foundation. The beautician at the store said that the darker shades do not always correspond perfectly, so I would test in-person before buying.
Sidenote: as the review indicates, I have combination skin and use a prescription cream for acne on most nights.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Butterflyshay35 Was very Hopeful
I was very hopeful when I approached a sales person about makeup to cover my Rosacea. It covered some but you could still see the redness and I was not satisfied with the end result. Then the breakouts came and my skin looked horrible. I will not purchase this product again until they improve it.

I was very excited to get this product but what a big little down. Did not cover like they say on tv, will not be buying product again

I have used this product for years, I love it! It's perfect for my very sensitive skin.
My skin tends to flake during the day, this Foundation covers everythin uneven without looking dry.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lilo 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.

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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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!

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.

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!

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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by charlestongirl 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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!

I love this matte foundation i use it as a finishing powder and it leaves my make up on all day no need for touch up which is AMAZZZINNG cause i have oily skin. dont get me wrong i blot a few times but not much i suggest for anyone with oily skin :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer amazing product
I have oily sensitive skin and I also suffer from bad breaks out every now and again. But my worst skin issue that I always have is redness. My skin can be break out free and not oily but the redness is what I worry about the most. With the matte foundation, I don't have to think about how shiny my face is or the redness. It covers it up very well. This product is great for anyone, especially people with sensitive skin. I highly recommend it. I've never have any skin reactions to this foundation unlike some other I've used before this one. Then it also have spf, that's another great reason to use this foundation.
