      Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

      I like this product but didn't realize I grabbed the matte powder rather than the regular. I think the regular goes on smoother and has better coverage and gives you a natural glow. This definitely cuts the shine, but doesn't seem to have the same coverage. I will continue to use it, but will make sure to grab the original powder next time.

                      • Q:

                        I have been using Pur Minerals pressed foundation in Medium Dark for the winter. My skin is not that dark, but I do NOT like a beige look and oddly enough even in the winter the medium dark blends in nicely. I would like to try Bare Minerals Matte Foundation but I want to use it in the summer when I am tan, and I don't know if I should get warm tan or Medium Dark. I do get very dark in the summer and I don't want to get something too light. It says in the description that it's good for olive/yellow undertones. I don't understand. I do NOT have yellow undertones, yet when I tried it on my hand it looked very nice. Any recommendations on what color I should get for when I'm tan.. I get dark so I need something way darker than tan.

                          Please be advised that in the BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 both Warm Tan 22 and Medium Dark 23 are intended for cool to neutral undertones. Warm Tan would be considered one shade lighter than the Medium Dark, so it would depend on your preference.

                      • Q:

                        I am struggling trying to find the right shade! I purchased fairly medium, and it's too dark and too pink. So I purchased fairly light, still a tad too dark, and too yellow. Would the fair 01 or fair 02 be a better fit? And is the fair 02 the darker of the two? Or is it only a difference in the undertone?

                          We recommend trying shade Fair Ivory 02 in the BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Fair Ivory 02 is for Neutral undertones meaning it incorporates both undertones if you are in between or a mixture of Cool and Golden shades. We also recommend using our shade finder to compare your best match: http://www.ulta.com/shade-finders/bareminerals-original-matte-foundation-finder/.

                        Hello I am trying to find a perfect match in this foundation before I go and dish out all kinds of money on it. I live an hour and a half away from the closest bare minerals boutique and I do not drive so it makes getting matched in person near impossible.. Ive always used the same liquid foundation as its always worked the best for my skin type (oily and mild acne in some spots off and on) ive also never had a foundation match me so well.. The one I'm using is estee lauder double wear in the shade dawn 1w2. Do you suggest any specific shade based on that information? Also does this product change on your skin as the day goes on? I've never had that problem with double wear but I have with others in the past. I just want something more for everyday use that isnt loaded with junk to say the least I really hope someone can help me thank you so much for your time

                          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.
