Please Sync Colors w/Numbers in Stores!!

By Ocean Happy

from IL

Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

I buy these foundations at the store and they come numbered (e.g., N20, N30, etc) and on the App they are by names (e.g., medium beige, tan beige, etc). I'm not sure how to order the same color through the App. Please make them the same!!!! I love them but only after buying the IT brushes to apply them. I didn't like the BareMinerals brush.

        My system gave me a beginner's kit of the matte foundation and I loved it, but when I bought the full size version last week it doesn't seem like it's giving me the same coverage as the beginner kit and the shade doesn't seem the same. It seems to have more of a yellow tint. I am unhappy with this purchase. I usually LOVE bare minerals and it's one of the only things I truly splurge on. This stuff is expensive to me and I am super bummed that this foundation does not seem like the same one I fell in love with from the starter kit.

          I like that it does not cake on my face and it looks natural. I'm not to fond of putting liquid foundation on my face so this works very well for me and my only skin and stays on well during humid weather too.
