        Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

        This stuff has changed my life. I was an avid liquid foundation user. I thought "how could a powder foundation really have good coverage ?" But this does. I have Rosacea and this covers it. I have acne scarring and this doesn't make it stand out like liquid foundation. Liquid would sink into my pores and scars but this covers it. Will use for a long time.

                    The BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 lasts up to 8 hours with regular use and normal sweat and oil production. Please note that this foundation does not claim to be waterproof and may not last while excess sweating occurs.

                • 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.

                    Hello Beachnut,

                    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?

                    Hello sarahjeanne,

                    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/.
