      Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

      I used to use bare minerals foundation all of the time. It was the very first foundation that I started using when I started wearing makeup. The store was out of my usual foundation so I bought this as a backup. Since I've been wearing my face has broken out and it also makes my skin look very dry. My skin felt like it couldn't breath as well. It def is not like it used to be.

        I've got a lot of hyperpigmentation and melasma issues. If you use a good moisturizer and primer and buff the powder in once your primer is dry this covers flaws and pigmentation really well without looking cakey.

              Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

              This got two stars because they have a great shade selection but it goes down hill after that. I bought this on recommendation of a coworker and it's horrible. Unless you have perfect skin it will show every bump on your face. It actually goes on really nice and the coverage is ok but it made me breakout really bad and even with primer and setting powder it came off easily and settled into cracks.

                  Hi
                  I usually use IT foundation Laura Geller ECT. Heard I should try bare minerals. I'm in my 50's with medium skin tone. I do not want any product to settle in my fine lines. I looked at your matching foundation and found the medium tan. What finishing powder and primer would you recommend? Also, I sweat slot do you think this would work for me.

                  I wear wheat in the complexion rescue tinted moisturizer. What color in the mineral powder foundation would be comparable to this color? Medium seems to be too dark and the medium beige is way too light.
