    Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I love this foundation. I have problematic skin- I'm in my mid-twenties and I still struggle with constant acne, and this gives me the coverage I need without being heavy. This foundation is buildable. It does cover redness and acne scars. It's worth spending a little extra. I've tried other brands several times in an effort to save money, but I always return to bareMinerals because it works the best.

    Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    This looks great at the beginning of the day. It's very natural looking which is what I go for. It's a little difficult to build up, for me at least. At the end of the day my face is really oily- more so than other foundations I've used. It also takes more time to put on than a pressed powder or liquid foundation.

                              The BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 can last up to 8-hours depending on the amount applied and also varying factors (ie applying setting powder/excess oil production).
