Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

I really like this foundation. It's lightweight, yet it covers well. I am in my 50's and I prefer to use the matte makeup because I do not want to look sparkly at my age, plus I have oily skin. Not a good combo. My only complaint is that because it is powder it does show your wrinkles more. But regular foundation still makes my skin break out so I will put up with the powder.

    Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    If you want to use this as your primary foundation and you still want coverage I would NOT recommend it. HOWEVER, this powder is great to set my more luminous foundations. It definitely did not cover anything on me on its own. I use on top of the Garnier BB cream for a light coverage look.

          I wish I still had the receipt for this product so I could return it. I brought it a week ago and used it twice and both times my skin broke out in cystic bumps and the coverage was awful. It didn't blend well and left me extremely disappointed. I used the Bare Minerals kit years ago and I remember I loved it but I was allergic to the bismuth oxychloride and it made me itch and burn. I was hopefully the matte formula would be similar to the original and give me great coverage without the itching and be good for my skin but that was not the case. If only I could return/exchange it...

              I am so glad that I gave the matte finish a try! I've used the original finish for about ten years now and I was a bit hesitant to try the matte, but now I may never go back! Great coverage and great finish.

                  Hello rima,

                  If you are looking for a product similar to your current foundation in a powder form, we recommend trying the BareMinerals barePRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation. This foundation offers 12-hour full coverage. We would suggest using our shade finder to find your best match: barePRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation.
