    Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I have always used a mineral powder for the fact that they are lightweight, have good coverage, and are better for your skin overall. I do not like wearing base/foundation due to the heavy unnatural appearance it gives. The BareMinerals has been my favorite by far!! It goes on really well with just a lil bit of powder and last all day long!! Trust me ladies, once you get away from the heavy makeup and use something like this, you will never go back!!

    Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I have to blend two different shades of Bare Minerals to match my skin tone. Seems like they could make more blended tones in their products, such as a beige tone that has just a little yellow in it to cover some redness. I have tried different colors and essentially they tend to go very yellow or very beige with no mixture for a more true tone correction. .... Also the humidity here in TN seems to out match Bare Minerals. I hoped it would last but it doesn't. ... Not certain that I will stay with Bare Minerals brand or not....so I would recommend with some reservations.

      I use this product every day for my foundation, it always goes on matte and looks great through the morning and early afternoon. I do have oily skin and I found that the matte finish does not last me throughout the day and I always end up looking shiny. Great for a little color in the summer but does not do too well in the winter if your skin gets dry like mine.

            Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I bought this foundation because I was getting sick of putting on my liquid foundation on a regular basis. I work as a RN and didn't want something that necessarily had to be full-coverage, but something that was quick to apply but still hid my imperfections, lasted all day, and held a matte finish with my super oily skin. This hit the spot! Easy to apply and lasts all day. I love how I don't have to worry about my oily skin shining through with this foundation. The only con is I feel as if I am having to use more than I'd like to get the coverage I want -- but that could be due to a "novice" powder foundation user too! ;) Bottom line, I'd recommend this product and will be purchasing again!

            I wear this product everyday! I've had it for years, it does get cakey occasionally if I don't use a setting spray. Other than that, it covers blemishes and keeps most of the oil away. :)
