Q & A

MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null 4.5 5 89 89
I love this! I'd used bare escentuals mascara and lip stain before, and I was in the market for a fresh light weight and natural looking foundation. I decided to go into a bare minerals store and give it a shot.. Not only did I have some of the best customer service (Thank you Rika at Crabtree Valley mall for being my best friend for a day while I was shopping!) Once she helped me find all the proper shades and products that work best for me, she showed me how to apply it... which is so easy by the way!! I slept in that makeup that night (even with my acne prone skin) and I haven't had a problem with my skin yet! This stuff is so natural that it doesn't affect my skin at all! and when I wear it, it looks like I'm naturally that beautiful :) People don't even believe that I wear makeup :) And just to let you guys know, I wear the original powder foundation matte in fair. I also really like the blush.. not sure the name of the color but it's kind of a plum-y color. I use the brush Rika recommended. The primer and finishing veil are favorites of mine too! 08/27/2014
The best I've found so far This is the best foundation that I have found yet. I have tried many foundations, and this was the first powder that I have tried and the last. I am extremely oily, and I have to use this and the mineral veil, and touch up about every other hour, but compared to other foundations that would be shiny in 10 minutes and slide off my face this is a must. I would recommend for oily skin like mine along with the mineral veil and the BB tinted primer. My favorite makeup brand. 08/27/2014
I will never use liquid foundation again. I wear foundation every day, and I have recently grown very tired of the oily feel and look I have by the end of the day. I wanted to try something that looked felt more natural, but I was concerned that Bare Minerals would not cover my blemishes. I was wrong! As soon at the salesperson at Sephora applied this foundation, I knew I had to buy it. It covered by acne, but still looked super natural. I no longer feel very oily at the end of the day. This product is a must-have! 08/12/2014
Everything I needed. I tried Bare minerals original foundation and the ready go foundation and wasn't very impressed. I have combination and sensitive skin, so I really liked the bare minerals products because they didn't make me break out like most other makeups do. I decided to try bare minerals again and have been using the matte foundation. I LOVE IT. it gives the the smooth matte coverage I love especially during summer and is easy to go on. It doesn't take long to apply and gives me that soft natural matte look I've been looking for! I FOUND MY DREAM PRODUCT. I couldn't be happier! 07/24/2014
life changing I am native American and Sicilian so I have olive skin and the golden tan matches me perfectly. I also love how weightless it feels. I like other women used to suffer from adult acne. I tried all sorts of foundations to try to cover the break outs and even out my skin everything from covergirl, maybelline even shear cover and it would make my skin more oily and break me out even more. My dermatologist then recommended Bare Minerals to me. I've been in love ever since. The foundation is my most have cant live without!! 07/08/2014
Love, Love, Love I was so happy with the Matte Foundation. I have combination to oily skin and this helps control that extra shine. I tried a few other foundations before, but they only added extra shine and felt really greasy. I also like the natural/no makeup look that it gives. I rarely use makeup at all so it was a good transition into and so easy to apply when I need to have a little coverage! Totally recommend it! 07/01/2014
Love this stuff!! I've been using BM for several months and love the way this matte covers and helps with my oily skin. I've used other brands of make up most of my life and never realized how heavy they were, until I started using BM. It's weightless, and makes your skin flawless! 05/30/2014
African-American Women Friendly I'm a deep complexion (think Kelly Roland or Fantasia...maybe a shade lighter) and I feel over the moon in love with Bare Minerals foundations. I've used MAC, Covergirl and Iman so I know a good thing when I use it and BE is that perfect thing. I thought that the colors offered would leave me looking ashy but it is actually the total opposite, my skin has transformed into this beautiful brown sun-kissed complexion. I mix golden deep (a little of warm deep) and the warmth together for my perfect match, put on some mascara, lip glass and I good for the day. Lastly I suffered from adult acne and my face has been clear and I do not get those annoying pimples like I use to. If you are on the deep/dark side of the beautiful rainbow, give Bare Minerals a try. 05/28/2014
My chameleon skin, oye vey! I have really strange combination skin. In the winter time I LOVE my Ready foundation. It hydrates that little bit more which is just what my winter skin needs. Now that summer is rolling around the Ready foundation is too much. The Matte foundation is perfect in the sense that I still get the same flat texture as my Ready, but without the oily unkempt look after a long day at work. After applying my moisturizer and BB primer (a whole other story), I glide on my Matte foundation. It stays put and controls my oil production all day. By the time 4:30 rolls around it is just as beautiful as when I applied it at 6:30 AM. It is fully adjustable between sheer to full coverage. I use the precision face brush and it 1,2,3 done :) 04/15/2014
MATTE GOLDEN TAN THIS MATTE FOUNDATION IS ALL I NEED!!! I USE THE PRIMER FIRST, THEN MATTE IN GOLDEN TAN AND IM OFF!!! I GET SO MANY COMPLIMENTS ON THIS BEAUTIFUL MAKEUP!!! I FEEL BEAUTIFUL ALL OVER!! THANK YOU BARE MINERALS, IM A CUSTOMER FOR LIFE!!! 04/03/2014
Best Foundation I have Tried the Bare Minerals Original, READY® Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 and the Matte Foundation. The Matte Foundation is by far my most favorite Foundation out of all of them. It gives my face a flawless Matte Look. I love that you just use a little and it goes a long way. I do not suggest to cake it on because then it does not give the natural look that Bare Minerals is known for. My daughter uses the same Matte Foundation and she seems to put too much on. This is my favorite of all the BareMinerals Foundations. I highly recommend this product. 03/26/2014
Not good I recently purchased Matte bare minerals loose powder foundation, because I like a natural look and it was recommended by a friend. When I went to purchase it the lady asked if I have oily or dry skin and I said combination so she gave me the Matte foundation saying it would help. When I first used it everything was fine but now I am noticing more and more that my skin is drying out, flaking and peeling. I'm starting to get fine lines all around my forehead, where it's just so dry it's like plastic, and I'm only 23. My skin is not oily anymore and the foundation is just drying my skin out so bad. I put tons of lotion on now and nothing seems to be helping, I can barely wear it anymore. Also, I am really fair and it makes my face look orange :( 03/24/2014
Beautiful Coverage If You have oily skin like me, matte foundation keeps it in check, and also prevents shine. Buff it on for beautiful coverage after the foundation primer for the best results. I have been using this foundation for a few months and even though it comes in a small container, I am still using my first one! I advise using it sparingly to keep it from running out sooner. If I had to say something negative about this product, I would probably point to it's duration throughout the day. Though it has amazing coverage, I have to reapply it once a day with the concealer. It "melts" off oily skin a little bit after a few hours. It melts enough to show blemishes. I hope this helped! 03/24/2014
try it out in person before purchasing alright so i saw this and i'm like oh my god cool i love bare minerals and i could totally use some new foundation. i had used clinique and it worked fantastically but after a few months it got old (makeup has no expiration date but it really kinda does), insanely oily and made my skin break out. anyway before ordering this online i decided to go to sephora and try it out, to make sure it matched my skin. i have extremely fair skin and most makeup lines don't go light enough. their fairest tone looked bright yellow on my skin. I'm so happy i didn't buy this because i would've looked like a clown. always try it out at sephora, you never know what it really looks like. so i ended up buying some really expensive much nicer makeup that sephora recommended 02/08/2014
Best foundation for African American skin I absolutely love this product. Before this, I hadn't found a foundation that looked good on my dark combination skin. I've loved it ever since! 12/31/2013
Just what I was looking for I just started my hunt for a dependable foundation for my upcoming wedding. I was looking for something with great coverage, that would be photo friendly, and would help cut back on the shine throughout the day. This foundation is exactly what I was looking for. The coverage is light but very easy to build upon. A little goes a long way and so far I love the matte coverage that still allows a healthy glow to come through. The only thing I think I need to tweak is my color. I was color matched in the store at medium but knew from previous experience it comes off too dark on my face so I went with light. Light works great now in December, but for an Oct wedding I am hoping to have a little more color so will probably have to go up a shade when the sun comes back! 12/29/2013
Great if you can find you match =-( I love B.M. Products but have got to say as a black woman with yellow undertones (I have not a stich of read unless my skin is flushed or irritated) I have twice left the store feeling great to get home and see I look like an Ompa Loompa I have such a ruddy red tone to my skin =-) I initally was given golden deep which sounded like it shold be "yello" based. I thought it looked pretty goos until I saw some pictures and was horrified! So I went back and this time a woman of color helped me...she picked medium deep....she said the person before was FIVE shades off! But comparing the two on the color chart they are almost identical...I am so fed up I don't know what to do =-( 12/21/2013
shine free and fresh! I love this foundation! I tried the original one at first but I was a shiny mess, so I tried the matte and look so much better. I use the mineral veil as a primer, then I apply the matte foundation. I had to get used to it becuase it is not as much coverage as a liquid foundation but its easy to layer concealer using the max concealer brush. I use the foundation as a concealer and also bisque and well rested as concealers too. After I apply faux tan and blush, I apply another layer of mineral veil, concentrating on my t-zone. It keeps me shine free for hours, and I have extremely oily skin! 12/09/2013
Fine It is a lot better than the original formula (which made me super rashy). Not crazy about it having Zinc Oxide and Silica (rating of 3 and 6 on EWG, respectively). Didn't make me break out, however even the lightest color wasn't quite right. Used this for about a year but have moved on to another brand that has my shade. 12/06/2013
PERFECT FOR OILY SKIN I am a teenager, and I deal with really oily skin. I used to use the BareMinerals Original Foundation, which gave perfect coverage. However, it made my face too oily and dewy. Now that I am using the Matte Foundation, my skin is literally 10x less oily looking throughout the day. I also use oil absorbing wipes twice a day, which really help. So, if you are a teen like me, who deals with oily skin throughout the day, I swear that this will help! Stop looking for other solutions....this works! Even though it is more expensive, it was worth every dollar. BareMinerals is my life saver! 12/01/2013
worst foundation iv ever used iv always used a liquid foundation and with me being a tan skin colour always found it quite hard to find a great match, this one was the worst, i was tested in store for skin match on neck, looked ok in the lighting of the store i taken home (with sample i used) was a good job because its awfull, very patchy even when blended with correct brushes, when using the foundation as a concealer it made dark areas on my face, better of not using it, ill be taken the un-used items back today not happy at all iv tried 3 attepts to see if it made a differents flowing the DVD given, think it would be a good product if you are pale skin tone with no blemishes 12/01/2013
MATTE Foundation When I first started using bareMinerals foundation, I used ORIGINAL and I dealt with my skin looking a little too luminous/dewey. I like looking a little bit luminous, but with my oily skin it was too much, and did nothing to help with my large pores. Someone at the store mentioned that I should try using the MATTE foundation, since it was supposed to help with the oiliness and pores issues, and she was completely right! It has really helped reduce the look of my pores, and even though I still have some oiliness, it doesn't look too much, like it did with the ORIGINAL. Overall, I am really glad that I made the switch, and I recommend to any oil-prone bareMinerals gals to try using the MATTE. Tip: To achieve a really natural-looking finish, take the time to buff one several layers using less product, to really buff it into the skin. It does take a little more time, but is worth it when you're makeup still looks flawless (and not cakey) at the end of the day. 11/22/2013
I can't get medium coverage I bought this because i have oily skin and I thought this would be perfect but I cannot get medium coverage for the life of me. I see others wearing theirs and I cannot get mine. I'm going back to the original formula because I never had these issues. 11/04/2013
amazing love this product! i use fairly medium it matches perfectly with my red undertone and feels like i am not even wearing makeup 10/29/2013
Light weight and beautiful! I have just switched from MAC's studio fix powder foundation to Bare Minerals Matte foundation and for the past 3 days I have been loving it! It's not as heavy as MAC's and most of all, it doesn't turn me orange the more I sweat! I can re-apply without fear of going orange and you can hardly tell it's even on. I will be sticking with this foundation for a LONG time! 10/17/2013
Love this makeup! I can't say enough about how much I LOVE Bare Minerals Makeup! The foundation is the best, it covers every imperfection I have whether it be dark circles, acne scars or pimples. It looks natural and flawless and feels so light. I use it in addition to my Derma-blend make up (for my under eye circles only) and it still looks light and flawless. I have seen an improvement in my overall skin after using this foundation. Thanks for making a great product! 10/12/2013
Great coverage foundation I looooove the Bare Minerals MATTE foundation, it actually gives me a full day worth of wear. I have been looking for years for a really nice, light foundation and this is it! At some point during the day my skin does become slightly oily, but as long as I blot my face with oil sheets, my makeup will last! 10/11/2013
Finally found a winner! I have spent many hundreds of dollars trying to find the perfect foundation, and at long last I found it! I have light, acne-prone, oily skin. This doesn't grease me up. And if I use a few layers, I can hide almost all of my acne. I love that by 2 pm, my make up doesn't look melted. I live in a hot and dry area, and I frequently visit hot and humid areas and have had no problems with this "melting". My skin is also very sensitive, and I have not had a single problem with this making my breakouts worse or irritating my skin. I would recommend this to anyone! 10/07/2013
I can't leave the house without it I am a 28 year old Panamanian and Mexican woman with very oily, sensitive and sometimes dry skin. I use the color "Golden Tan". I had wasted so many years trying to search for something that left a natural, oil free look and I wanted something that wouldn't make my skin breakout. This product is worth every penny and I swear by it! People compliment me on my skin all the time and no one believes me when I say that I'm almost 29 because my skin has such a youthful glow to it. I've been using this for 3 years and I will never use anything else. I use this along with PrimeTime for oily skin and IT WORKS! Especially if you have shine control issues. I usually never sleep with makeup on but on the very RARE occasion that I do, I sometimes wake up with smoother skin, believe it or not. It just feels lighter, healthier and you don't have to keep reapplying throughout the day which I love the most. Love this stuff, it's my secret weapon!! 09/25/2013
the best foundation As i'm young and I don't have any serious issues such as acne or wrinkles I don't think foundation is strictly necessary on my daily makeup routine, I just didn't want to damage my skin. But one day, a friend of mine recommended me this foundation and I can say it completely changed my life. I've got combination skin and I wanted a long lasting matte foundation. This one is just perfect 09/21/2013

worst foundation iv ever used iv always used a liquid foundation and with me being a tan skin colour always found it quite hard to find a great match, this one was the worst, i was tested in store for skin match on neck, looked ok in the lighting of the store i taken home (with sample i used) was a good job because its awfull, very patchy even when blended with correct brushes, when using the foundation as a concealer it made dark areas on my face, better of not using it, ill be taken the un-used items back today not happy at all iv tried 3 attepts to see if it made a differents flowing the DVD given, think it would be a good product if you are pale skin tone with no blemishes 12/01/2013
MATTE Foundation When I first started using bareMinerals foundation, I used ORIGINAL and I dealt with my skin looking a little too luminous/dewey. I like looking a little bit luminous, but with my oily skin it was too much, and did nothing to help with my large pores. Someone at the store mentioned that I should try using the MATTE foundation, since it was supposed to help with the oiliness and pores issues, and she was completely right! It has really helped reduce the look of my pores, and even though I still have some oiliness, it doesn't look too much, like it did with the ORIGINAL. Overall, I am really glad that I made the switch, and I recommend to any oil-prone bareMinerals gals to try using the MATTE. Tip: To achieve a really natural-looking finish, take the time to buff one several layers using less product, to really buff it into the skin. It does take a little more time, but is worth it when you're makeup still looks flawless (and not cakey) at the end of the day. 11/22/2013
I can't get medium coverage I bought this because i have oily skin and I thought this would be perfect but I cannot get medium coverage for the life of me. I see others wearing theirs and I cannot get mine. I'm going back to the original formula because I never had these issues. 11/04/2013
amazing love this product! i use fairly medium it matches perfectly with my red undertone and feels like i am not even wearing makeup 10/29/2013
Light weight and beautiful! I have just switched from MAC's studio fix powder foundation to Bare Minerals Matte foundation and for the past 3 days I have been loving it! It's not as heavy as MAC's and most of all, it doesn't turn me orange the more I sweat! I can re-apply without fear of going orange and you can hardly tell it's even on. I will be sticking with this foundation for a LONG time! 10/17/2013
Love this makeup! I can't say enough about how much I LOVE Bare Minerals Makeup! The foundation is the best, it covers every imperfection I have whether it be dark circles, acne scars or pimples. It looks natural and flawless and feels so light. I use it in addition to my Derma-blend make up (for my under eye circles only) and it still looks light and flawless. I have seen an improvement in my overall skin after using this foundation. Thanks for making a great product! 10/12/2013
Great coverage foundation I looooove the Bare Minerals MATTE foundation, it actually gives me a full day worth of wear. I have been looking for years for a really nice, light foundation and this is it! At some point during the day my skin does become slightly oily, but as long as I blot my face with oil sheets, my makeup will last! 10/11/2013
Finally found a winner! I have spent many hundreds of dollars trying to find the perfect foundation, and at long last I found it! I have light, acne-prone, oily skin. This doesn't grease me up. And if I use a few layers, I can hide almost all of my acne. I love that by 2 pm, my make up doesn't look melted. I live in a hot and dry area, and I frequently visit hot and humid areas and have had no problems with this "melting". My skin is also very sensitive, and I have not had a single problem with this making my breakouts worse or irritating my skin. I would recommend this to anyone! 10/07/2013
I can't leave the house without it I am a 28 year old Panamanian and Mexican woman with very oily, sensitive and sometimes dry skin. I use the color "Golden Tan". I had wasted so many years trying to search for something that left a natural, oil free look and I wanted something that wouldn't make my skin breakout. This product is worth every penny and I swear by it! People compliment me on my skin all the time and no one believes me when I say that I'm almost 29 because my skin has such a youthful glow to it. I've been using this for 3 years and I will never use anything else. I use this along with PrimeTime for oily skin and IT WORKS! Especially if you have shine control issues. I usually never sleep with makeup on but on the very RARE occasion that I do, I sometimes wake up with smoother skin, believe it or not. It just feels lighter, healthier and you don't have to keep reapplying throughout the day which I love the most. Love this stuff, it's my secret weapon!! 09/25/2013
the best foundation As i'm young and I don't have any serious issues such as acne or wrinkles I don't think foundation is strictly necessary on my daily makeup routine, I just didn't want to damage my skin. But one day, a friend of mine recommended me this foundation and I can say it completely changed my life. I've got combination skin and I wanted a long lasting matte foundation. This one is just perfect 09/21/2013
