      I haven't worn actual foundation in years. I've been using BB or CC creams. I hate the heavy feel of a foundation, especially 1/2 way through the day. I don't mind the light coverage of the creams most days but there are times I want full coverage. I received a sample of this foundation and liked it but the color was off. I ordered the next lighter color and love it! It goes on easily and I don't even notice it throughout the day. It's not really more expensive than other high end brands.

                        A:

                        Either option would meet your criteria! The most noticeable difference is the consistency - liquid vs. loose mineral powder. Do you have a preference? Also, if you are seeking a 100% natural mineral formula, then bareMinerals Original Foundation is your pick! It is 100% mineral with no additives whatsoever. We recommend visiting your nearest ULTA Beauty store to test both products to determine which you prefer:
