MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
Great for oily skin!!
I wasn't sure if this type of foundation would stay on (I work in a dental office, so I wear a mask most of the day) and the foundation look like a just applied it at the end of the day. Of course, I touch up my nose after lunch but I don't have that greasy look at all! LOVE this stuff..won't be going back to any other kind.
I've used Bare Minerals since the 1980s and I've never had my skin look anything but fabulous. However, since I'm getting older I thought I'd try the matte foundation. It was supposed to look natural and minimize the pores, etc. Instead, my skin looked dead. I was shocked after I applied it (the same way I've done for years with the original formula) and looked at the results. What my mirror showed me was the same kind of appearance you'd see if an undertaker had done the makeup application. I thought, "I may be getting older, but I'm not dead yet!" I'm going back to the original formula and looking forward to seeing that subtle "glow" again!
Best Foundation Ever
Love this foundation !!!!!!! I am Warm Deep Matte. Perfect Match !
I have a back up in my stash ..
I love this foundation...
My friend said I looked "annoyingly flawless" after 12 hours of wear , no touch upLOL
Thanks for a great product Bare Minerals
Love it...wish it were cheaper!!
I absolutely love this foundation. It blends incredibly well and looks amazing. I wish either the containers/contents were bigger/more or it cost less. It is a little on the expensive side.
My favorite foundation
I love this matte loose foundation! It keeps my face looking fresh longer; I tend to look shiny halfway through the day with the original foundation.
Wonderful product. Addresses the issue of combination skin while providing SPF protection.
The mineral foundation in Matte is great for my oily and sensitive skin! I love that it covers well and looks natural. I use the golden tan shade and it matches my warmer tan skin tone great! I use the full flawless face brush and swirl inside the lid for around 15 seconds and then begin buffing the foundation on my face. I suggest starting with just a little product and then adding more as needed for full coverage.
I love this foundation. It's lightweight, covers well and when I'm done with my morning regiment I look just like me, only a little better. I have extremely sensitive skin and am prone to breakouts, but since switching to BareMinerals I have not had any of the issues I used to have with different brands. I feel the point of makeup is to look like you aren't wearing any, you just look great naturally and this product does that for me. Won't go back to traditional makeup ever.
Wonderful foundation with great coverage, no oily shine, and very natural looking! Love this product and is the only thing I will wear on my face. Awesome product!!
I don't ever write reviews but I always read them! I felt I needed to write a review because i love this product so much & have spent $$$ over the years trying to find something I liked.I have to say I love and will be a forever customer of BM's! I have very oily skin/large pores & have to apply powder throughout the day. Since getting my BM's makeup my face looks great all day! I have medium to light colored skin and here's what I got that matches perfect to my skin tone & the coverage is awesome! The prime time primer,matte finish foundation in golden medium, concealer (very important if you want a flawless look) in bisque, the mineral veil tinted. I'm using the tinted veil now because I have a tan, but if your not tan you may want to use the original. It's not super dark but it will give you some color. I also got the concealer brush which is awesome & I use the heavenly brush to apply the makup. I just ordered some eye shadow, eyeliner & mascara hopefully they are as good as the other makeup! Hopefully this review helps you!
Just as good coverage as the Bare Minerals liquid!
I was a bit iffy at first when deciding whether or not to buy this product, because I know how powders can be: you have to keep re-applying them throughout the day, they don't get as much coverage, etc. However, this product was very surprising. Not only did it have just as much coverage for me as the Bare Minerals liquid, but it stayed on all day! All day as in it lasted for me throughout a 10am- 10pm trip to Universal Studios. So, yeah, I'd say it works pretty great!
Great foundation for oily, acne-prone skin
I switched to Bare Minerals because of the original foundation. I liked the powder - it stayed put all day. Then when Ready came out, I switched to it and was again, very pleased. Recently a sales associate mentioned that MATTE Foundation was the best of both products - and she was right. This really knocks out the shine my face gets over time and also does a great job of covering acne breakouts.
Perfect Natural Coverage
I get so many compliments that it doesn't look like I'm wearing makeup but if I didn't they would really notice and think Scary! That's the point really. If they think I'm not wearing makeup, it's perfect for me. I'm way past the cakey makeup. The entire product line allows for natural or dramatic. Perfect! Expensive but it does last a while. Just be sure you have a good brush that doesn't promote waste. Keep your brushes clean weekly or so. Use shampoo and conditioner on your brushes - additional advice I guess.
Will never go back to other foundation!
I used this product years ago and changed thinking I would save some money. Tried several "mineral" foundations you can buy at the drugstore and none were comparable. I even tried an expensive department store liquid foundation to cover redness to my face that developed as I got older......made my face breakout at age 45! Went back to bareMinerals and gave a deep sigh of relief......beautiful and covered my redness....and no breakouts! I will never leave again.
The colors are wrong, but the finish is great with new brush
I've been wearing BareMinerals for 12+ years. I love the loose minerals and was so excited when the matte finish launched. The colors have always been off-too yellow and too pink. I had given up on it until recently when I bought the Beautiful Finish brush. I got the email about what brush to try with each foundation formula and decided to re-visit Matte. Even though I can't get a perfect match, the Beautiful Finish brush applies this foundation so perfectly, I'm wearing it anyway. It doesn't budge during the humidity and wears all day with NO necessary touch ups. As a mom, I don't have time to worry about my makeup and I love the way the finish looks-even the end of the day. Try it with the new brush, you won't be disappointed!
Bare Minerals matte foundation works so well....I don't need much and it barely looks like I have any makeup on!
Love this Product
I have been using this product for two years now. I really like it and will continue to use Bare Minerals products because they're lightweight and natural. However, I've noticed the power doesn't last that long and can leave my skin a bit oily. Still like the product though because it's so easy to use!
This product probably isn't one of bareMinerals' best products. I definitely prefer liquid foundation; it's just that powder foundations settle into pores and creases in the skin, therefore making them more visible. I still like this product and will use it.
Great, especially for warmer weather
I bought this in anticipation of summer's hot, humid weather. When I first apply it, my face feels a bit tight and looks flaky. As the day goes on, however, I'm glad I'm wearing it. If I do have flakes, I sweep a bit of Original Mineral Veil over, and that helps. I use Fairly Light, the same shade I wear in the Original Foundation. The beautician at the store said that the darker shades do not always correspond perfectly, so I would test in-person before buying.
Sidenote: as the review indicates, I have combination skin and use a prescription cream for acne on most nights.
Was very Hopeful
I was very hopeful when I approached a sales person about makeup to cover my Rosacea. It covered some but you could still see the redness and I was not satisfied with the end result. Then the breakouts came and my skin looked horrible. I will not purchase this product again until they improve it.
not worth the money
I was very excited to get this product but what a big little down. Did not cover like they say on tv, will not be buying product again
I have used this product for years, I love it! It's perfect for my very sensitive skin.
My skin tends to flake during the day, this Foundation covers everythin uneven without looking dry.
I'm not one to fall in love with makeup, but...
I have been bothered by rosecea for as long as I can remember. No one has ever admired my skin. That is, until I started using Bare Minerals. My daily makeup routine is concealer, foundation, blush and Mineral Veil. Now, I get frequent compliments from friends, acquaintances...even my doctor! And they don't say they like my makeup. They tell me my complexion looks wonderful, which is even better. It tells me that my face looks natural...only better! When I'm wearing Bare Minerals, I feel confident that my face is looking its best.
The Greatest Makeup!
I have been using this makeup since I was in my 30's and now I am in my 50's. It goes on wonderful and covers any dark spots. It is not oily so it doesn't clog your pores and show off your wrinkles. You can not go wrong with this line of makeup. It applies easily and last all day. I love that it is all natural! I sleep with it at night and does not damage my skin it is still soft and smooth. They have such a large assortment of colors. I wish they still carried the Buxom lipstick it was so tingly on my lips and was so beautiful on!
Great product. Takes away all redness for a light coverage. This is not a full coverage foundation, however the lightweight feel is nice to have on days when skin is senesitve or you don't want to wear lots of makeup. Personally, this doesn't last me all day because I am really oily, but for the first couple of hours it looks amazing and feels lightweight/ shear. Try this for a powder foundation. It is great to have in your kit!
Love this product. I have bought the entire collect from concealor to mascara. I am a bare for life customer.
I love the color and matte finish. I have very sensitive skin and can't wear anything else without a massive breakout. Hypoallergenic, fantastic coverage and the only foundation I will ever buy again.
Very Natural Looking
I have used this for years, then I switched to the new Liquid foundation for a year, didn't like at all. It caked on my face, was messy, needed a special powder which also caked. Just went back to the powder and all is good again. Love, Love it!
Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15
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.
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!
