Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Matte foundation provides great coverage without feeling like you're wearing a mask. Love this product.

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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ALuongo 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!
