MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
Always an old favorite.
This was actually the very first face makeup I have ever tried, I tried it as a 14 year old, and my mom was okay with me wearing it because it looks so natural. With good care of your brushes and actually using the correct brushes, and also a freshly washed and moisturized face, the foundation has always gone on perfectly for me. Sometimes I get a little tired of it when I'm looking for better coverage and switch to different liquid foundations, but I always find myself coming back to bare minerals original. I love it. I think the way to get the best coverage is again, proper preparation of your face (that goes for any makeup) and the right brush. I use the Heavenly face brush. It will always be a favorite makeup of mine, and I never break out with it. Highly recommended.
Not for Oily Skin
I was expecting famous results seeing this over the year, and I tried the foundation with the primer and without.
Without the primer nothing was covered up and my face didn't look flawless.
With the primer, it looked very cakey and fake on my face.
Best Foundation Ever!
The matte foundation has fast become my favorite, especially during the summer. The foundations are lightweight so it feels like you don't have makeup on, and they still cover all your problem areas.
I am in love with this foundation! I love the perfect photo-finish, no make-up look that it gives.
My mother have been wearing bareminerals matte foundation for years and her skin is flawless! So she inspired me to try out the foundation for myself because of my dry skin. I research this product for months to find my perfect shade and I found two Golden Tan (which I have now) and Warm Tan. The first day I try this product it felt like there was nothing on my face (I like that because I hate caked on makeup) and also my face seem brighter and healthier looking. After two weeks of use my face actually became healthier, softer, clearer and provide the luminous glow I wanted!! It reduces the redness and the dryness on my face, I am soooooooo happy!!!! I love that the foundation contains SPF 15 because I easily tan especially in the summer.
It looks beautiful and natural and feels natural, I love this foundation so much and I will never use any other foundation but Bareminerals!!
The best foundation
I love the way it covers from a light to full coverage and still looks natural, also the way it improves my skin's texture.
Life time user
When I first saw the info for this make-up I was't really feeling it. I thought about but the make-up for a few months; then on my birthday I decided to go to the Store on the Las Vegas and brought the product. I love that it true to my complexion and doesn't leave my looking to dark or gray looking. I'm switching from M.A.C. to Bare. This make-up is so worth it.
Renewed Love for Bare Minerals Foundation
After years of not wearing the original product because it didn't match my skin tone, I was recently matched by the Bare Minerals lady at Dillards. I initially wanted to use the new pressed foundation, but the shades did not match well to my skin tone. So, she suggested the matte foundation and I was so impressed with the converage. It's truly buildable, because some days my skin is extra flawless on its own and I don't need a lot of makeup, so it evens my skin tone. However, when I have blemishes or areas that need more coverage, this product handles it and leaves me looking flawless. I've had several people mention that I looked flawless, but didn't recognize that I had on makeup! They assumed it was just a good skincare regimen and that's true as well, but this product takes it to another level. I'm a Black woman with warm, yellow undertones. The rep matched me so quick and since she was a woman of color, she understood my needs. Overall, this product is quick and easy to use (for busy women) and it gives great coverage. It's affordable and doesn't leave your skin feeling heavy! Highly recommend!
I have been using the Original BE foundation for 5 years and finally decided to try the Matte version. I am so happy I tried it (and bought it) and wished I should have sooner. I have combination/normal skin and my skin tends to get oily on my forehead and chin towards the end of the day. After wearing this for 8 hours while at work, I noticed my forehead and chin were not oily and shiny like it normally does towards the end of the day. I would highly recommend this if you have normal/combination skin.
I do think think; however, that this formula doesn't give me that luminous glow like the original (which was why I didn't want to try the matte version in the first place), BUT it's not that bad b/c the oil and shininess is under control. I will still use my original formula for doing errands or such, but this is my new favorite everyday go-to!
Works like a miracle!
I have been using Bare Escentuals foundation for years. I am 60 years old and it is by far the best foundation I've ever put on my face. I don't like liquid foundations because they feel so cloying on my skin...like my skin is covered in grease. But B.E. matte foundation is like a miracle! I have small broken capillaries on my cheeks, they really bother me and I had tried many other products to cover them. B.E. worked! Every morning when I buff on my foundation, I always look at the one side of my face that I've buffed, compared to the bare side. It never ceases to amaze me how well B.E. covers. I don't leave the house without a buff! It's fast, easy, and best of all...it works! My skin doesn't feel like it can't breathe, it feels fresh and I know it looks good! Thanks for such a wonderful product that actually does what it claims!
