I love this foundation goes on amazingly! It give me the coverage I need. I have uneven skin tone by using a little extra it give me the look I like without that cake on look. I received so many compliments saying "how beautiful I look" this is the foundation for me.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best foundation!
I was really nervous trying this. I'm so used to drug store liquid foundation and switching to a loose mineral one was a big step for me. It took a while to get used to the whole buffing motion, but with practice and watching youtube tutorials, I got the buffing down. Now my make up looks like my skin. My break outs are going away and I couldn't be happier! I love this stuff! It's a must have!

I have super oily, sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. I usually prefer using liquid foundation as it provided coverage of my blemishes the best...until a friend gave me a sample of her Bare Minerals Matte Foundation. I noticed an almost immediate difference in the amount of oil on my face at the end of the day. Granted, I do still have a sheen when I finish work but it is noticeably less pronounced than before I started Bare Minerals. Also, the condition of my skin has improved considerably with fewer breakouts. The coverage is surprisingly good considering that it is a powder, it covers about as well as a liquid but feels like there is practically nothing on your face.
I have since tried several other Bare Minerals products and have been very pleasantly surprised. The blush, lip gloss, and mineral veil have all been excellent quality. This may be the best face makeup I have ever used and believe me, I've tried them all!

This is one of my "must haves" before I leave the house! I suffer from acne prone/oily skin and this product does not aid the acne. It last majority of my work day 0800-1630. If I go out after work I typically touch up for a re freshened look! The matte does help tame the oiliness for the part! I only wish there was a recycle program for these products because I use them religiously!

I love this matte foundation i use it as a finishing powder and it leaves my make up on all day no need for touch up which is AMAZZZINNG cause i have oily skin. dont get me wrong i blot a few times but not much i suggest for anyone with oily skin :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer amazing product
I have oily sensitive skin and I also suffer from bad breaks out every now and again. But my worst skin issue that I always have is redness. My skin can be break out free and not oily but the redness is what I worry about the most. With the matte foundation, I don't have to think about how shiny my face is or the redness. It covers it up very well. This product is great for anyone, especially people with sensitive skin. I highly recommend it. I've never have any skin reactions to this foundation unlike some other I've used before this one. Then it also have spf, that's another great reason to use this foundation.

I have been a long time user of the original bareminerals foundation. I had to adjust to the Matte as I found my skin a little oily the first few times I used it but it seems I have adjusted and now my skin looks flawless!!!! I am thrilled with the coverage and it will be my new go to foundation from here on out. I can't recommend it enough!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimmy76 Best matte foundations ever
I would highly recommend this foundation to anyone.

I've been using this make up for many years. I hate the look of most liquid or non-powder foundation on the face, especially if the color does not perfectly match my skin tone. This make up provides enough coverage and does not look like you have a mask on.

As a woman who loves to be made up, I dislike the feel of makeup. Weird, I know. I've gone from bronzers such as faux tan just for a little color enhancement which I loved to your matte line which soaks up my excessive oil. I'm in awh with this product which matches my skin perfectly! I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by rachann Holy grail foundation
This is the only foundation I will use forever. I tell everyone looking for a new foundation to get this, its so amazing. The only thing bad I can honestly say about this is that it is quite pricey, especially when using it on a daily basis. But I can truly say its worth the price, I have less skin issues, you never end up with a "mask" like foundation can cause. Blends well, using it with the primer helps it last all day long. I love all of Bare Minerals products that I have tried. Will not disappoint.

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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by KristineR 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!

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.

by FatboyRider 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!
Rated 3 out of 5 by NatalieVW 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by hhalford8990 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!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Disappointed
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.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Anon256 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnaCate007 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.

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!

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. :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by Michy 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'.

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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Haley 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.
Rated 3 out of 5 by britbrat Pore Magnifying
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.....
