Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

I have loved and worn bare minerals foundation since high school. It goes on great and stays on all day. You really need a good brush to give you full coverage as this foundation doesn't always give the best coverage but I still love this foundation overall. Gives a nice matte finish.

Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

Very expensive in my opinion, but it is such great quality, it is worth it. Minimizes red splotches and smooths out unevenness in tone, without pooling in wrinkles and crevices like liquid or cream makeup. The SPF is a bonus!

      I have oily and acne prone skin, and using this versus the normal bare minerals has helped my skin! I usually have a compact with me to touch up my oily skin throughout the day. Since I bought this, I haven't needed to touch up my makeup. I'm very happy.

                        Hello Clauperez91,

                        We would suggest trying shade Neutral Medium 15 in the BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It is intended for medium to tan skin with neutral undertones. An alternative would be shade Golden Beige 13 which is intended for medium skin with with neutral to golden undertones.

                        Hello RenneIsh,

                        The difference between the BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and the Original foundation are the finishes. The original foundation provides a luminous finish while the Matte formula is matte. Also, please note that the ingredients do differ slightly and are listed on each item's description.

                        The BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 should not cause "flash back". We would recommend blending well if you are concerned.

                        The BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 does not include a brush. The original foundation provides a luminous finish while the matte formula provides a matte/opaque finish. Please also note that there is a small difference in ingredients which are listed under each product.
