          Ive used this foundation for almost 7 years now. I love how lightweight it is and how much it covers. At first i was skeptical about the price (as i love to get good deals everywhere). But bare minerals lasts for a few months. So its less than $10 a month for me. Ive convinced a few of my friends to switch and they too are in love with this foundation. It really is amazing, i suggest anyone and everyone to try it once to see.

            I normally am all about finding the cheapest product I can when it comes to makeup, but since nothing was working for me, I tried Bare Minerals on a whim, and boy was I surprised! It is so good that it's all I'll buy for foundation now, and it's definitely worth the little extra splurge!

              I have used Bare Minerals powder foundation for over 30 years. I love the non-greasy , non-irritating with SPF15 as well as the great coverage. It feels good and looks good.

              My challenge has been that I needed mix color to get that match. This new color is a PERFECT match. Thank you!

                Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

                As a redhead with extremely fair skin that is easily burned, it has always been a challenge to find a foundation that won't make me look like I don't know what color my skin in. Even the lightest shades are sometimes too dark for me. I personally don't like the look that full coverage foundation gives me, so I always try and look for buildable powders. This is everything I could ever ask for in a foundation. It makes my skin feel great and the coverage is perfect for me. I finally look like I know what I'm doing with my makeup. I use the recommended brush, but I wouldn't say it's 100% necessary.

                I put Bare Minerals Original Powder Foundation over a BB cream and for the most part, it looks great. I don't like heavy foundations and just want to even out my skin tone and as long as you don't go overboard on the amount you apply, this is perfect. If you don't blend well and put too much product on your brush, it can cake a bit. Make sure your primer and/or foundation are dry before even trying to apply this. Gives my mid-40's skin a nice glow without looking greasy!

                    Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

                    I was very eager to try a new color in Bare Minerals Original, I guess it's the ivory. I'm very very fair and have vitiligo, so I need excellent coverage. I'm also 58, which means I need something that won't be cakey or glob into pores.

                    Bare Minerals original is my go-to when I need to look my best. It is a tiny bit more work than an all in one foundation, so I don't wear it every day. If you have time its worth the extra effort! Covers beautifully.

                        Hello Makeupaddict101,

                        We would not suggest this to cover large birthmarks as the coverage is light to medium. Although build-able, we would suggest using a full coverage foundation instead, or a concealer for your birthmark underneath this foundation if you are trying to cover it.

                        BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 does not contain sparkles or shimmer. By soft luminosity, it means that certain minerals in this item reflect light which would appear as luminous once applied to the skin.

                        It is possible to use a cream blush with the ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. We suggest stippling the blush on lightly and gradually working the rogue into the apples of your cheeks and towards your temples for the best look possible.

                      Is this original foundation non comedogenic? I have very sensitive, acne prone, and oily skin. Unfortunately I can't use anything that isn't. Also could you tell me is the gel tinted moisturizer? I was thinking of getting that also for days off so I'm not always wearing full makeup.

                        All bareMinerals® foundations, and facial moisturizers are tested to insure that they have no potential for comedogenicity. Also, we think you are referring to our Complexion Rescue™ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, if so, it is tinted moisturizer, but also so much more! It's packed with powerful SPF 30 and a tasteful tint of hydrating foundation, this gel cream is blessed with the benefits of our marvelous mineral makeup with marine botanicals and mineral electrolytes that hydrate and boost your skin's natural beauty.
