              I have large pores, acne prone skin. I prefer full coverage. This foundation provides that & hides my pores without causing breakouts. You control the amount of coverage. A little goes a long way.

              Not a fan it these containers that don't open all the way.
              I would also like to be able to use coupon for this product. It's the only thing I buy but can only use coupons for stuff I don't want.

                    I like the products. I feel like coverage is not the best for blemishes. I have pigmentation and it takes quite a bit of product to cover. This product would be best suited for someone without many skin flaws or for someone wanting light coverage

                      I am over 70 (!) and haven't needed makeup for most of my life. I now have a few brown spots and would like to know if BM would provide coverage for the problem.The only serious wrinkles I have are lip and smile lines because I have never been a sun worshiper. I've been told that powder would make them worse. Please let me know if your product is suitable for me.

                    • Q:

                      My face tends to perspire easily, so I have never been able to wear any kind of liquid foundation. Luckily for the most part I never really needed one. I would like to find something that will hold up under this condition, to even out my skin tone while looking natural, would this product possibly work for me?

                        Warm undertones are golden, yellow or peach. Cool undertones are red, blue or pink. Neutral undertones may appear greenish or have elements of both warm and cool tones.

                      Is bareminerals matter foundation good for oily skin? I have been through bottles of brands and none of them live up to their expectation. I have tried this foundation before and it was good, but make me cake on my upper lip, was there too much product there? And it wore off and my redness shined through, I can't remember how it did with my oils though.

                      Hi, I've been using Bare Minerals 'Tan' matte finish foundation since May 2016 and find that it is too light for my olive complexion. I believe I started out using Med tan and would like to go a little darker than what I am currently using. The color in the picture seems lighter when I compare the Med Tan to the Tan. Is Med tan lighter than tan? Suggestions?

                        A:

                        The Medium Tan is slightly lighter and better for cool undertones and the Tan is better for neutral undertones. Many customers tend to use two shades of foundation throughout the year depending on the seasons. Potentially one is a better fit in the summer months and another is a better fit in the winter months. If you feel you have more golden undertones we would suggest going with Golden Tan.

                      Hi, I have been debating on whether or not to try this product. I have slight acne that changes in a heartbeat; I might have almost clear skin one day and nothing but pimples the next. Should I even attempt to use a mineral foundation such as this one, or stick with a liquid foundation? Thanks so much!
