        I have been using this product for almost 15 years! I have tried other mineral powders (and that's all they seem to be - powders) but they don't even come close. Being 65 many people I know are shocked when they see how young my skin looks. I tell them Bare Minerals and be sure and use the Vitamin product with the minerals. Also I see many people say it doesn't stay on - but what they really mean is that their blush (whatever they use) doesn't stay. These minerals are so light but continue to over and in the evening when I remove my make-up, it is very obvious that my minerals are still there!

              Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

              I used to use the Este Lauder camouflage cover up as my base makeup because the coverage was flawless. It covered any signs of small breakouts, my acne scars and any redness I might have been experiencing. That makeup was so heavy though and would get so greasy looking after a few hours. I was forever blotting my face in the bathroom. Then I tried bare minerals and haven't looked back since! I get the same coverage but the makeup is much more lightweight and natural looking on my skin. Not the mention the matte version formula has completely knocked out all of my bathroom blotting visits (: lol.

                        My skin tone ranges from tan(summer) to medium(winter) and I already have the tan color and now I want to purchase a medium shade, but the medium shade on the picture chart is a bit too light.. Are the colors on your chart accurate? And should I choose medium beige or medium tan?

                          Hey there! Yes our charts are accurate. The Medium Beige is going to be for Medium skin with a neutral undertone and Medium Tan is for Tan Skin with a cool undertone. If you're more tan now since summer is coming to an end, you may want to try the Medium Tan, then transition into the Medium Beige as winter approaches!
