    Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    i have huge pores. My main issue was makeup going into my pores and making them looking even worse. Nothing hid them. Only accenuated them. I wanted a smooth and flawfless finish. I tried every thing from expensive to cheap. Nothing worked. I got a sample of this from ulta and tried it. I used this as a finishing powder on top of primer and bareminerals bareskin foundation. I fell in love. I immediately went out and bought it. I got the smooth and flawless finish i have been looking for. It's longlasting. And keeps oily skin looking matte and beautiful:) ladies...and possibly gents...if you have giant pores or fine lines this is for you!! This was a total game changer in my makeup routine. It's a little pricey...but totally worth it. And a little bit goes a long way.

            I choose Bare Minerals for their powder foundation because it's a good quality product and because it's CRUELTY FREE, which is a MUST for all the products I buy. My only complaint is that I think their price is a bit high, as all of the "prestige cosmetic" companies are.

                Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

                I like this product because it works so well with my oily skin. I am also somewhat acne prone. I start by applying Benefit's Porefessional primer with a sponge, then apply this powder with a soft kabuki brush. I find that by going over my skin with it a few times I can achieve a high level of coverage. Using this product instead of other powders leads to fewer skin troubles in my experience. It is also easy to reapply or touch up and blend blush into.

                    Right now I'm using a medium tan shade but sometimes I feel like it's a different color that my neck and isn't my exact shade. I'm looking to go maybe one shade lighter. What would you recommend?

                    HI I am wondering how does this original foundation compare to the bare minerals barepro performance wear foundation. I have been using a product similar to mineral powder foundation but wondering if I would like the bare pro better. Trying to compare. Thank you

                      Hello Gorgeous! The Original Foundation is a loose mineral formula, while the barePRO foundation is a pressed formula, both have build-able coverage based on how much you apply. It comes down to what type of a foundation formula you prefer, loose or pressed :)

                      Hello Gorgeous! It all depends on how often you use it and at what rate. It doesn't "go bad", however we would recommend replacing it after a year if it hasn't been used up.
