Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 180 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome foundation I've been using this foundation for years and I won't switch brands. In a hot and humid climate, it holds up all day and gives me the coverage and finish I want. 07/18/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 07/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for oily skin Love this - helps to control my daughters acne prone shine! 07/01/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 06/30/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. 06/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 05/20/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. 05/19/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Coverage The Matte foundation provides great coverage without feeling like you're wearing a mask. Love this product. 05/18/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. 04/27/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! 04/17/2016

I want to open the plastic casing that holds the matte powder foundation. It says to "lift the sifter off". How do I do that? I have tried everything and can't open it!!! I end up wasting foundation because I can't get the last bit out.

Answer: 
To get the last bit of foundation out, turn the container over and pry the bottom off with a butter knife. Then you can either use the last bit of it or put what's left in the new container. Make sure you snap the bottom back on the new foundation all the way around so it stays sealed.

Answer: 
For a long time I had this problem too, here's how to do it. Get a pair of flat ended tweezers, on the bottom of the foundation you will notice there is a plastic plug. Use your tweezers on the inner most circle of this plug and gently pry it upward. It's best to work around the entire canister to get the plug lifted. Once removed you can use every bit of foundation and simply push the plug back in place so you do not lose any foundation. Hope this helped!

Answer: 
Basically you want to turn your container upside down. You should see the color name of your product on a clear circular little lid... I usually use some flat headed tweezers and I click it upwards, just like a paint can lid. There you have it now you can use the rest of your product! Hope I helped!

Answers

Answer: 
I am also 58 I would recommend the luminous ( original)since you have normal skin. I have oily skin so I use the matte version. I get very good results when using a primer & find it absolutely does not settle in my wrinkles like other make-ups. As far as what shade it's hard to say just be aware the actual product is lighter than it appears on-line. I ordered based on the images but ended up going to Sephora to get color matched, if this is not possible for you I would call customer service they are helpful maybe if you can think of a famous movie star whose skin color most matches yours they can recommend the right shade for you. Hopes this helps.

Details: 
I've never had this with any other make-up foundation and I have used the same liquid primer for almost 10 years now. I love the way this product makes the rest of my skin look and feel but it is so frustrating and embarrassing to deal with. Also, I do not have the gathering of make-up in my smile lines when I simply wear a primer foundation so I know it has to be the matte finish that is causing this issue. Thank you in advance BM.

Answers

Answer: 
Powder foundations just tend to do this. I too have that happen in between my eye brows in my lines. I have found using the normal bare minerals primer vs oil control primer is better. I also have started to use the correcting concealer and this helps keep the make up in place. I went to school for hair/make up and I was taught the proper way to wear any foundation is primer, liquid foundation, concealer and then set it with a powder foundation. Maybe give the concealer a try?

Answer: 
Hi! I tried the Matte foundation and ran into the same problem. I think the ingredient causing this is the silica, as the other foundations that I've used with this ingredient tend to be pretty cakey. However, I don't have this problem at all when using BM's Original foundation. It actually makes my skin look younger, as it's more nourishing and luminous (in my opinion). I also use the mineral veil at the end to get more of a matte finish. Good luck to you!

Answer: 
im a warm tan powders and have tried bare skin and complexion rescue. honestly unless you want to use multiple items , there isn't a shade that matches. i tried bare walnut and turned out really paste-y even though it looked like it would match. the only thing i can say is to maybe take a chance on espresso or bare mocha since they're the only 2 shades left. one of them may work

Answer: 
really any age! Perfect for pre-teens and adults. This foundation doesn't have any harsh ingredients in it that can cause acne like some drugstore foundations. Your skin actually changes a lot with this makeup. It's smoother, softer, and doesn't clog your pores. The mineral veil really seals in the powder foundation. It absorbs oil and it's great to have if you get oily throughout the day.

Answer: 
Absolutely it is safe for them to use. I dont recommend it at all for though. Its very gentle on the skin but it is not great for acne. I have bad bright red acne sometimes cysts. It covers but looks very unnatural and cakey if you need quite a bit of coverage. I suggest if you do purchase it to make sure to use primer and some form of green cream to reduce the redness. I find using a concealer specifically on the bumps helps too.

Answer: 
I started using makeup in 6th grade at age 12 and even though I am still in my teens, this makeup is one of the best I have used (and I have tried a lot).
It feels and looks natural and I have many allergies and sensitive skin.
Their finishing powder is also light and great.
No matter what age this is a great makeup brand and better than a lot of those heavier and less natural foundations out there.

Answer: 
Hi Cammie! I run into the same problem as Summer ends. I have yet to find the perfect shade down from medium beige that isn't too light, so what I do is buy Fairly Light and mix in small amounts of Medium Beige until I get the desired result. I like being able to control the color but do wish there were more shade options for lighter skin tones with neutral undertones. Good luck to you!

Answer: 
I have found the shades to be the same. I wore Golden Tan in the Original for years and I switched to Matte about a year ago. The color is still a perfect match, but now I don't have that super skinny glisten when my skin gets oily. It has a more natural dewy look after 2 hours.

Answer: 
Yes I believe so! The Matte may be a bit darker but it is hardly noticeable! When I went to get my shade match in the store the artist tried on both and told me that they look the same on me. (Medium Beige) The only real big difference is the finish between Matte and Illuminated.

Answer: 
Yes, they are the same color, with Mattes just not having a that "glowy" look (from the mica in the Original). The Matte may be a teeeennnyy shade darker, but not enough to need a whole new shade.

Hope this helps!
