MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
Great Foundation... Yet tricky
I have sensitive, combination-oily skin. I liked the Bare Minerals Original foundation but I always had too much of a sheen on my skin with that product. So I tried the Matte version and was pleasantly surprised:) it lasts about 8 hrs. (Like it claims) and I don't see as much oil as I would with the Original. The only reason I didn't give this foundation 5 stars is because sometimes, if I wear this foundation too many days in a row, I get these weird red patched under my eyes. But after I wash my face they vanish.
Great Stuff !
The Only Foundation That Gives Me Perfect Coverage And Matches My Skin Perfectly. I Love it.
Beautiful Skin Tone
I have sensitive skin, and I wanted a foundation that will help my skin. Bare Minerals Original Foundation gives me a flawless complexion that lasts for hours! I will always wear Bare Minerals Original Foundation!
Love, Love, Love
I have uneven skintone and blemishes. I also have dance practice in the morning before school, and I only have 10 minutes to get ready. I need something that will cover efficiently this product has accomplished that for me. I love bareminerals and the confidence it has given me.
I am 19 years old and I have need fighting acne like crazy because of the liquid foundations. As soon as I started using the Matte foundation again my acne started clears up and I could actually control my oily face. The Matte finish helps control my oil through out the day while also not clogging my pores. After one day I already saw a big difference in my skin. This foundation is smooth and soft. I recommend the primer for the all day wear. It is not cakey or clumpy! I love this product!
MAGNIFIED every pore
I have used Original formula for years, I tried this thinking it would have less 'sparkle'. I bought the same shade #fairly light# and it seemed quite a bit darker. I've always thought I had pretty even skin, but this went on so cakey, it seems to 'stick' onto some areas of my face and be repelled by others. It caked up around each and every pore having a magnifying effect on my pores. It also felt heavy, looked heavy, and made my face itch. I used toner and primer before applying. Not for me, I'm sticking with original.
Best for younger skin.
I have been using BE for about 10 years now. I don't like to use a lot of make up and always applied BE products lightly. Now that I am in my 40's, my skin needs more coverage. I find that when I use it to cover up dark spots and etc. that it really makes my dry, older skin look very dry and cracked (and I use a very good moisturizer with it); and it emphasizes wrinkles & pores that you just don't see without the product on my face. I still lightly apply the all-over-face-colors and they go on well still, but not the foundation. I was so disappointed that I needed to switch to a cream foundation, but when I did, it just made my skin glow and look so much better, healthier, smoother and younger. I cannot recommend this for older skin, but it is the best ever for younger skin. Please come up with a solution for us older women who have been so loyal for so long.
Fabulous life saver!
This foundation is a must if you have a darker complexion. As you wear, it "improves" becoming more like your skin without the ashy "glow". I receive complements almost every time I wear this foundation. I've tried others and always return to this staple. Its also the best foundation for wear in hot, humid southern summers!
Fights my oil literally all day and its not cakey.
So I was very skeptical on purchasing BE at first, but I had heard so many excellent reviews that I said why not. I went to the boutique to get shade matched, which I highly recommend especially if your makeup challenged or have uneven skin tone like myself. I purchased the matte about 2 days ago and this is the best makeup purchase that I have made. The matte isn't cakey or heavy; it is breathable, feels clean, plus it last all day. I work a 9-5 and live in southern CA so using other products like BB cream or liquid foundation seemed great, until about 3 hours after wearing I looked like someone dumped oil and shine on my face. The matte actually works with my skin to keep the shine away, but it still gives me a natural glow which Iove. Another great thing about the matte; because it's not cakey, if I scratch my face I don't find traces of makeup under my fingernails. The best part about this stuff is that after I put my makeup on in the morning, go to work, sweat, and have the sun beating down on me I come home looking as if I just put my make up on.
I bought the original foundation and loved it. Then I decided to try the matte one just to see how it looked, and I love it even more! The original I felt needed to be re-applied after a while...while the matte last all day until I take it off. Perfect, I can wear it at work all day and then get off and still look good. Love it!
