      Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

      I've been using this product for the last 13 years and will never switch. I've tried several of the off brand mineral powders but there is no comparison. When I started using Bare Minerals I was a teen with acne prone skin trying to find a makeup that didn't worsen my completion and even as an adult I am still not able to use any other products without breakouts. I find that this product stays on better with a primer but still is about gone after an 8 hour work day. So it's great for light/medium coverage. If there are problem areas there are consealers to use with it that prolong the duration of the makeup. There is no other makeup I will use.

        I love the color selections, I was looking for a darker color for the summertime to match my summer "tan" and they had a good selection of brown colors. I really love that they have them in warms/neutrals with the different undertones. The coverage is just what I was looking for and it looks very natural!

                Hello Clauperez91,

                We would suggest trying shade Neutral Medium 15 in the BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It is intended for medium to tan skin with neutral undertones. An alternative would be shade Golden Beige 13 which is intended for medium skin with with neutral to golden undertones.

                Hello RenneIsh,

                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.

                Hello Medzu,

                The BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 should not cause "flash back". We would recommend blending well if you are concerned.

                Hello Ann,

                The BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 does not include a brush. The original foundation provides a luminous finish while the matte formula provides a matte/opaque finish. Please also note that there is a small difference in ingredients which are listed under each product.

              I usually wear this foundation in the Matte form in the shade fairly light but I'm wondering if fair ivory would be a better option? I have a fair complexion with a neutral undertone year round.

              I am over 70 (!) and haven't needed makeup for most of my life. I now have a few brown spots and would like to know if BM would provide coverage for the problem.The only serious wrinkles I have are lip and smile lines because I have never been a sun worshiper. I've been told that powder would make them worse. Please let me know if your product is suitable for me.
