MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
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.
L O V E!!!
I have very sensitive skin and the matte foundation has proven to be a blessing. It never breaks me out. I was nervous to purchase a loose mineral powder foundation because I have a few acne scars and dark spots. Along with the BE concealer, my face looks flawless. This foundation reduces the allover redness of my face without drying my skin out or making if look flakey. So happy and surprised by this product! BUY!
Hooked for Life!
I absolutely LOVE this foundation! I've been using it for over a year now and I can never go back to drugstore mineral makeup. It lasts all day and looks very natural. I don't feel like I'm even wearing makeup! It's amazing!
I absolutely LOVE this product. I have been using this along with other products from here, for a long time now. Nothing gives me the coverage like this. My naturally oily skin is cured with the MATTE foundation. This lasts me a long time. And also keeps my skin looking nice and clear(no breakouts)! I always get compliments on my skin and make up from people saying how beautiful and natural it looks. :)
I LOVE IT!
I have normal to dry skin but later on in the day my face gets very oily. I guess it's due to all the moisturizers I use. Either way I have used the original foundation and my face would get very oily. I switched to this before giving up on BM and I am soooo glad I did! I can definitely see the difference and it helps absorb the oils from my face. I have been using this one for about 4 years now.
I would just suggest that if you do use the MATTE and you're switching from the original, to pick a shade lighter. For example for the original I'm a 'Fairly Light' but for the MATTE I'm 'Fair'.
I'M IN LOVE
After being disappointed twice by the BareSkin liquid foundation, I decided to give Bare Minerals one last chance with this Matte powder foundation. Let me tell you, it did NOT disappoint!! I use a kabuki brush I got at Costco and it gives me nice even coverage. It covers up my flaws and evens my skin tone without looking like I'm cake-facing. I just use moisturizer underneath (I'm bad about using primer) and it stays on all day. I just get a little shiny throughout the day, but I'll probably get the Mineral Veil compact for that ;) My skin just looks so smooth with this! It's everything I've ever wanted in makeup. Never going back to liquid!
I absolutely love this product! I tried it for the first time yesterday, and it has beautiful coverage! It only takes a small amount of it to cover the whole face. I highly recommend it!
Best thing ever!
I am 14 with a few blemishes and super oily skin and large pores on my nose and lovely undereye circles in the morning. Yikes! I started using proactiv which has been working great on my skin, and decided I didn't want to spend half and hour applying my face makeup. I found bareminerals, and after applying my green tea moisturizer, buffing a thin layer of this onto my entire face and spot concealing my blemishes and dark circles, I look refreshed and ready to go! A couple coats of my favorite mascara and I'm out the door. This product looks great even after basketball practice and softball games! Just need to be sure to Moisturize before use, I didn't at first and this product is chalky and blotchy since it has nothing but dry skin to blend into. Primer and setting spray helps too, but I save those for special occasions. Please do yourself a favor and buy this product now!
Best Foundation I've Had
I always have had a horrible time finding my shade of foundation. I change from summer to winter, and most foundations feel icky and seem thickly visible. Not this one! I've used the Fairly Light Foundation for 3 years now. It matches my skin regardless of tan or sans tan. It is light, I don't feel like I have a layer of goop over my skin-it's breathable! And the new Matte style is even better. I really like the idea of enhancing my natural skin, and this foundation does so flawlessly.
I got this on hope that it would reduce the look of my pore size, no way! my pores are more emphasized! I like the way I look in pictures way better with the matte than the original ( I look less greasy) but, not much of a difference in formula. The original is better i feel.....
