            Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I have just never found a better foundation. The coverage is buildable with simply a buffing action and perhaps adding more product. You can cover blemishes or flaws with a small brush and then buff the rest of the face with a soft foundation brush. The coverage is very good, stays all day, looks natural and doesn't settle in fine lines or wrinkles.

                I didn't start wearing foundation until my daughter bought me this product -- I don't believe I would have spent the money myself to purchase it. But since being introduced to it, I have been purchasing it for 5 years now. I love the light yet easy coverage of this foundation -- it does not feel like I am putting anything on. And yet it does exactly what I need, which is to blend and soften any discoloration in my face. I travel with it, and use it daily. Great product that is worth the money.

                        If you had previously used shade Light W15, you would now use Light 08 in the BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Our recommendation for you in the barePRO pressed powder would be Golden Ivory 08.

                        It is possible to use the BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 over your foundation, but please note that this is also considered a foundation. We recommend using the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil or the BareMinerals bareSkin Perfecting Veil for oil control and also to set your makeup.

                        Hello X,

                        If you had previously used shade C25, we recommend using Medium 10 in the BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15.
