MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 203.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will use no other foundation. I've worn a lot of makeup in my time but NOTHING feels as great as Bare Minerals! No clogged pores feeling or paint appearance and equally important, no smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Foundation I am a makeup girl...Who doesn't like to look beautiful??? I have tried EVERYTHING from cheap to expensive. This stuff is AMAZING!! Not that the Original foundation isn't good but, I like this stuff so much better. The Original lets through a little bit of shine. The matte does not. I will only buy the Matte and as I would rather spend the money on the Matte than on the larger (once yearly) Original. I recently wrote a letter to Customer Service because I think not making and offering customers the Matte foundation available in the (once yearly) size is doing BM customers who prefer the Matte, a total disservice. By reading the reviews, I can see some loyalty out there for those of us who prefer the Matte over the Original foundation. So, being a very loyal BM customer and they have to approve this letter, I think they should give us Matte customers a bigger size like they do the Original foundation. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have I love this foundation!! I've been wearing for years and wouldn't consider a different brand. I think my skin is even better from using it versus cheaper brands. Blends well and can even be used as a concealer. I love that is has a SPF 15. Matte is my favorite of the foundations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very matte and a little darker than expected I have used the Original foundation for about a year. I have combination skin and found that during the warmer months my skin looked very oily after a few hours, due to humidity, etc. I tried the Matte finish, but it is quite a bit darker than its Original counterpart. I also prefer a SLIGHTLY luminous finish; I think that having a perfectly matte finish makes my skin look a little dull. Mixing the two together - Original and Matte - gives me the perfect amount of coverage and glow without looking too oily or dull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product!!! I have had a very hard time finding makeup products that will not make my skin break out and I finally found it!!! (Yes I'm young but I need makeup due to stage performances.) I started using Bare Minerals with a starter kit and absolutely loved it. I tend to break out mostly on my forehead and most other products will cause immediate outbreaks within the first day, but I have had no problems with this product. It has a great amount of coverage that doesn't cover every single flaw, but still evens out my skin tone and hides the majority of them. Because my face is very oily, it does not remain fully matte throughout the day, so at the end of the day, I have an even more natural looking face because the oil just helps the powder to set in even more. I could go on FOREVER about how great this product is and how great all of the other products are (such as the complexion rescue tinted hydrating gel cream... absolutely love it... try it with this foundation or the original foundation...) but I don't have much more time. Anyways, get this product, you will not regret it! It really doesn't clog up your pores and you don't even notice you have makeup on... peace out! XOXO

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good This foundation looks pretty good for about 5 hours, then I start getting pretty oily. Which is weird, because with the original I stayed matte longer... The finish is great. Covers redness well. Does an ok job at covering acne, but it doesn't make it disappear. Overall, it's not too bad. I like it cause it doesn't break me out or look streaky like most liquid foundations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only product I trust! I've had acne for as long as I can remember. After a breakdown in college I decided to spend the extra money for the sake of my face, and it was the best decision I made! Yes, it's expensive, but it's worth saving the tears over breakouts. I use all powder products and love the way my face feels at the end of the day instead of feeling like it's melting off by lunch. I've seen significant improvements in my skin and I don't think I will ever trust anything else on my face. Bare minerals claims it is so natural you can sleep with it on, and although I will wear this all day every day, if your acne issues are as bad as mine I still don't recommend that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Matte foundation Perfect for hot muggy summers. My face didn't get shiny like it does with liquid foundation. Gives medium coverage. It will be the foundation I use during the summer for my oily skin. Winter, I don't think I'd use as powders seem to stick to my dry patches. I do like it and will repurchase it, for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation Ever Reasons- any skin type can wear it- it does not emphasize pores or wrinkles. Its not sparkley. You can control the coverage. Its buildable, portable and blendable. It can also be used by both men and women. I am a middle aged man with darker skin and some uneven pigmentation and always a bit shiny. I also need to wear a mineral sunscreen like titanium and zinc- but they leave a blue pink cast on my skin. Bare Minerals Matte doesn't look unnatural at all and has sunscreen, I never break out. Its great for travel and discrete. If you are in situations where you need to look refreshed, refined, natural and younger looking, this is the product to go to. You may want to have several shades so you can colour adjust for the seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from confident I always had trouble finding the right foundation. Either is made me break out or I looked like i was wearing makeup. My friend told me about bare minerals and I just had to try it. Ive tried other mineral foundation before but i also looked cakey and chalky. I started out using the original foundation and liked it but i found it made me too shiny. So i decided to try the matte foundation and i fell in love! it was perfect for my type of skin. I have acne prone skin that is very sensitive. During the summer my face would get really oily but with the matte foundation it would stay on my face and soak up a lot of the oil. Makeup that would really last me throughout the whole day. With this makeup it just looks better as time goes on because it seems to really set into my skin. Ive been using complexion rescue underneath or to just quickly put on which i love. This makeup changed my life. NO other makeup compares.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weightless This goes on so smooth and feels like I'm not wearing anything. It makes my skin look flawless but still very natural, no overly madeup. I really like the matte finish too.
Date published: 2016-06-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Fails I have pitted skin from acne, and after I turned 50, liquid foundations weren't working for me due to settling into the imperfections in my skin. A friend suggested I try this foundation, so I went into the store to find out what color(s) were a match for me. I started with the original foundation, and now use the matte because I have oily skin, and have found no other foundation that looks and feels as natural as this one does. I use a the Fairly Light as a base with the Medium Beige over it. I also use the Warmth as my blush as it's the perfect color for me. To get the last bit of powder out of the container, pry off the bottom with a butter knife and you can then marry it into your new container. Make sure you snap it back on all the way around so it doesn't come loose. I haven't looked for another brand of make-up now in over 8 years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product bad packaging I have been using Bare Minerals powder foundation for several years and will never go back to liquid. However, this last product I purchased the bottom fell off the container. Needless to say this makeup isn't the cheapest and part of my purchase was wasted down the drain :( I'm not sure if it is a design flaw or if I just got a bad container.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Foundation My friend introduced me to this foundation about 6 years ago. I had never worn any make up prior to this. Now I cannot live without it! I have combination skin. Its dry near my chin and very oily in my T-zone. I have enlarged pores on my cheeks and acne scars. I have experimented with the original foundation and it did not work as well as the matte for my skin. The powder keeps my skin from being shiny during the day and it looks almost flawless. Its also not heavy- I often feel I am not wearing makeup. I have tried other products and I keep finding myself coming back to this foundation- its worth the money. I work as a RN and its a make up I can wear to work without looking so made up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Thing I Ever Did Was Start Wearing This Ever since I was a teenager, I struggled with combination skin. Sometimes my face was really dry and others it was super oily. I would have weeks with no breakouts and then weeks will a ton. My mom first introduced me to Bare Minerals when she bought me the starter kit. Once I started wearing it and stopped with the other cakey foundations, I could see the change in my skin. Bare Minerals hides what I want it to hide but still keep the look of my own skin. I stopped putting chemicals on my face and the natural minerals have really helped me keep my skin clear and healthy. I wear Bare Minerals every day and nothing else!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT FOR ME I feel, and others communicated to me that the foundation looked harsh, unnatural, and took away from me instead of enhancing me; I have good skin, so really don't need a foundation, but like to wear something to have that polished look; I selected the shade with a store associate, seemed to be the right color, but when I put it on, to me, it seemed too dark and too yellow for me; I am light with a neutral skin tone; so I gave it to my mother to try, and see if it would be of benefit to her, and her friends told her to take it off, said she looked older, told her she looked made up. So, I feel it was a waste of about $30.00, product wasn't what I thought it would be. I bought a tinted moisturizer from another line at a department store, and it compliments me beautifully. In summary, I feel this product was not for me, and thank you for the email asking me to share my thoughts. What I do wish is that you would bring back the high shine eyeshadows, loved them, miss them, would wear the purple and the white, were such beautiful products, in a few seconds would bring out my eyes, was one of my favorite products out of anything I ever used. The price was affordable too. I hope you can bring those products back. I do wear the mineral veil as a finishing touch to set the tinted moisturizer, sometimes just wear that and not the tinted moisturizer; I like the mineral veil to take away any shine from my layered mositurizers, as I have dry, sensitive skin, always did, am 45 years old, but am told I look about 27. I take care of my skin by using good products and avoiding overexposure in the sun. That's why I had come to Bare Minerals because I researched how the products are good for your skin, and so I selected the mineral veil. I am all set with what I use for makeup, but again, wish the high shine eyeshadows would come back because I'd love to have the purple and the white on my make up table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never fails I don't know why I try new foundations because I ALWAYS end up buying this again. Lol This is possibly the best foundation Bare Minerals makes. Literally makes my skin look so flawless, people are always asking what make-up I use. I have really oily, acne prone skin and Bare Minerals is the ONLY brand that does not break out or irritate my skin. Other foundations don't measure up to this one.
Date published: 2016-01-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never use liquid foundation again I absolutely love this foundation. I thought with my dry skin that there was no way I could use mineral powder foundation. Once I apply the primer, the foundation lasts all day. My skin feels great and I never feel like I'm wearing makeup. I'm a nurse and I work long 12-14 hour days, so I need makeup that lasts. This delivers. I love it!
Date published: 2016-01-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Foundation I enjoy the matte foundation every now and then. I do find that it's harder for me to get coverage with the matte when compared with the original. Also, just as a warning the colors are slightly darker in matte so you may need to go down 1 shade. For example, my fairly light in matte swatches the same as my light in original.
Date published: 2016-01-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my skin! I was dubious at first, but I love it! Now that I am not using the liquid and cream foundations, I do not suffer breakouts. I was using the non-comedogenic products but still had breakouts. For best coverage, follow the directions and build up if you need to. I really like the matte foundation - I have naturally oily skin so the matte formula is perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matte Foundation Provides great coverage, container lasts a long time, and is great on my sometimes oily skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for everyday use. It's perfect if you're going for the everyday no makeup makeup look. It blurs imperfections but doesn't cover them completely which isn't really a big deal for me. This powder is so light it feels and looks like it's your bare face.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT FOR ME I feel, and others communicated to me that the foundation looked harsh, unnatural, and took away from me instead of enhancing me; I have good skin, so really don't need a foundation, but like to wear something to have that polished look; I selected the shade with a store associate, seemed to be the right color, but when I put it on, to me, it seemed too dark and too yellow for me; I am light with a neutral skin tone; so I gave it to my mother to try, and see if it would be of benefit to her, and her friends told her to take it off, said she looked older, told her she looked made up. So, I feel it was a waste of about $30.00, product wasn't what I thought it would be. I bought a tinted moisturizer from another line at a department store, and it compliments me beautifully. In summary, I feel this product was not for me, and thank you for the email asking me to share my thoughts. What I do wish is that you would bring back the high shine eyeshadows, loved them, miss them, would wear the purple and the white, were such beautiful products, in a few seconds would bring out my eyes, was one of my favorite products out of anything I ever used. The price was affordable too. I hope you can bring those products back. I do wear the mineral veil as a finishing touch to set the tinted moisturizer, sometimes just wear that and not the tinted moisturizer; I like the mineral veil to take away any shine from my layered mositurizers, as I have dry, sensitive skin, always did, am 45 years old, but am told I look about 27. I take care of my skin by using good products and avoiding overexposure in the sun. That's why I had come to Bare Minerals because I researched how the products are good for your skin, and so I selected the mineral veil. I am all set with what I use for makeup, but again, wish the high shine eyeshadows would come back because I'd love to have the purple and the white on my make up table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never fails I don't know why I try new foundations because I ALWAYS end up buying this again. Lol This is possibly the best foundation Bare Minerals makes. Literally makes my skin look so flawless, people are always asking what make-up I use. I have really oily, acne prone skin and Bare Minerals is the ONLY brand that does not break out or irritate my skin. Other foundations don't measure up to this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never use liquid foundation again I absolutely love this foundation. I thought with my dry skin that there was no way I could use mineral powder foundation. Once I apply the primer, the foundation lasts all day. My skin feels great and I never feel like I'm wearing makeup. I'm a nurse and I work long 12-14 hour days, so I need makeup that lasts. This delivers. I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Foundation I enjoy the matte foundation every now and then. I do find that it's harder for me to get coverage with the matte when compared with the original. Also, just as a warning the colors are slightly darker in matte so you may need to go down 1 shade. For example, my fairly light in matte swatches the same as my light in original.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my skin! I was dubious at first, but I love it! Now that I am not using the liquid and cream foundations, I do not suffer breakouts. I was using the non-comedogenic products but still had breakouts. For best coverage, follow the directions and build up if you need to. I really like the matte foundation - I have naturally oily skin so the matte formula is perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for everyday use. It's perfect if you're going for the everyday no makeup makeup look. It blurs imperfections but doesn't cover them completely which isn't really a big deal for me. This powder is so light it feels and looks like it's your bare face.
