          Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

          I avoided makeup until my mid-30s because I never found a foundation I liked wearing. They all felt oily and sticky, and I had no idea what shade to get. Finally needing to even out my skin, I went into a Bare Minerals store two years ago. I tried the Rescue Complexion and loved how it blended into my skin, and the sales woman found my perfect shade. After a while I wanted more coverage to cover the red in my face. I went back to the store and got shade-matched for the Original Foundation. I can't believe the coverage it offers, and it feels like I'm wearing nothing at all! My red went away with the first sweep of the brush. I just tried it over Prime Time, and I loved how smooth it made my face. I use it over the Rescue Complexion for more coverage. I top it all off with Mineral Veil. My face is smooth, even and not oily. Couldn't be happier that I discovered Bare Minerals! I will pay more for quality, and I love how it's natural and cruelty-free. Checks all the boxes for me!

              This was legit the worst powder i have ever come in contact with. I never write reviews but oh my god this was horrible. Became cakey right away and looked like i had wet pottery on my face. Terrible for dry spots because it flaked. Returned it after one use. Used primer and setting spray as well.

                    Hello! I currently use the BarePro and wear the shade Sandalwood! It matches perfectly with my skin tone. I was wondering which shade you'd recommend for the original foundation? When I went to the store they matched me with Tan Nude and that's definitely too dark for my skin tone. Thank you!
