      So disappointed in the coverage for my skin. I️ have heard mixed reviews but wanted to give it a try. Made me break out with acne. It also made my pores look larger and my skin look dry.

      Love that this is the perfect color match and not too heavy. Matte is the only type I will use because it looks more natural. Wish it was a little cheaper but it's worth it.

                  I am acne prone, and have oily combination skin. With my previous liquid foundations I would have to use a primer and setting spray and powder which would only last around three hours and then I looked like I was sweating and my nose makeup was almost completely gone. I am thrilled with this powder it has been amazing looking in the mirror after three hours to see barley any oil, it really keeps my skin from looking and getting oily. Apparently liquid foundations are a no go for me anymore. I have used this foundation with only juice beauty spf 30 underneath and it has kept me mat much longer than anything else I've pretty much ever tried which has been from hourglass to urban decay to it cosmetics. I am a huge fan of this powder and so thankful because I have been dealing with bad skin and makeup for over a decade, finally glad I tried this out. Thank you!

                        The BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 should be suitable for you as it provides a naturally matte finish and also provides sheer to full, build-able coverage. We recommend using a primer before also for the best results.
