MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
I have used this product for years and will never use anything else. It's wonderful. It makes your skin look wonderful and feels great too!
I switched back to this
I used this foundation when I first came to Bare Minerals several years ago. When they came out with the compact foundation I started using that because I thought it was a better product. This past year I've noticed that my makeup would look cakey at the end of the day because my skin is oily. I went into a boutique a few weeks ago and was looking to get the same product and the girl told me that the compact isn't good for oily skin, and that I should go back to loose powder in matte. I did, and I'm so glad! My face looks great even at the end of the day. I now combine it with the broad spectrum serum foundation and my face has never looked better!
Too Awesome For Words
Although i am what is considered medium deep, i have an extremely bright golden under tone so finding my right shade is always a struggle. But the golden tan matte foundation match me perfectly.
I always look like the natural "me"
I have found that this foundation is ideal all year. In the winter months I mix a little Mineral Veil in to lighten a bit. My skin has never looked better than it does right now. This foundation stays put all day and I can easily transition from day to evening with just a few additions. I always look like the natural "me". Love!
Somewhat effective product by does have safe ingredients
I recently switched to Bare Minerals after researching the ingredients in my old foundations and getting a little scared. I've researched every ingredient in my Bare Minerals foundation and everything is safe. However, the foundation does not offer full coverage as advertised. I can get medium-coverage after layering the powder on. Also, I think it accentuates my wrinkles on my forehead (I'm 29) and makes me look older. I will continue to use this product until I find a safe product that is more effective
Works like a dream
Definitely helps with making my pores look smaller. Great coverage and doesn't feel like I have any make up on. I have to remind myself not to touch my face! I recommend.
Full, yet light coverage. Matches my skin tone perfectly!
First off, I tried everything to get this to blend out. With the brush I got recommended, it was very splotchy and made me look like patches were on my face. Also, the color made me look very orange. I have pale skin and the lightest was too yellow and the second lightest was too orange. Lastly, it made me whole face break out in hives...not a purchase I will make again.
I loved it...for a few weeks
It was absolutely wonderful going from $8 drug store products that made me look like a street cone to Bare Minerals. I bought this after getting a color match consult and it was amazing, worked wonders, and then my face started getting overly dry and because it got so dry it got extremely oily after a few hours and by then its pretty much gone and looks so cakey and just gross, it feels gross and looks gross, i had never had this problem before, i had combination skin (very mild) but the oil was on my T-zone and the dryness was mainly on my cheeks and forehead and now its unbelievably oily. I wish this worked out for me
Best foundation I've tried in 10+ years
This is the best foundation I've tried in the past ten years. Every time I stray away I come back and can't remember why I ever left. For reference, I have SUPER sensitive, very oily, acne prone skin. I have tried probably 20+ foundations from numerous different brands and bare minerals is the only company to get it right. I have golden/olive skin and because Of my sensitive acne prone skin I have lots of redness. Every other place I went to to get color matched, matched me to very cool pink foundations because of my redness. Bare minerals were the only boutique to ask me about my skin and wait 20 mins or so after applying the color match to give their opinion on what color I should buy. Because they waited for my skin to calm down after applying sample swatches they could see I'm actually very yellow toned. The care they took in just color matching me made me a customer for life.
The actual foundation is a life saver. Keeps oil at bay for 8-10 hrs, which is UNHEARD of for me. Covers my redness and acne beautifully, but never makes me look cakey or waxy or fake. When I wear bare minerals people always comment on what beautiful skin I have, which is strange because I have awful skin without makeup. This foundation literally melts into my skin, something liquid foundation could never do. I love that I don't even need a 2nd product to conceal necessarily. Just using a different brush gives you extra coverage. That is brilliant if you ask me! I also love how the colors are named and described on the site. I'm fairly light in the dead of winter, but because the descriptions are accurate I can pick which shade I will be in summer without spending time or money guessing. Couldn't reccomend this more.
