    Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    As I was approaching my mid 30's, I knew something needed to change in my makeup and skincare routine. I was having some serious breakouts from other make up, so I decided to try bareMinerals for a more pure make up. Within the first month of using it, my skin cleared! I also notice that my combination skin is not so problematic anymore. The foundation goes on smooth and the coverage is great - and it lasts all day!

      The only negative comment I have is that you can never get all of the foundation out of the container. The powder gets caught between the flange of the container and the perforated insert.

              My mother and I used MaxFactor's Pancake makeup forever. She had some backup when she passed in2012. When I used that up and found it was no longer sold in the U.S. I was at a loss with what I could find that went on as quickly and easily, didn't rub off and didn't leave me feeling like I had a second skin. I complemented a friend on how beaufiful her skin looked and she told me that she had just started using Bare Minerals. I made an appt. for consultation with "The New Well" in Medford, Or the next day. I LOVE IT! My only complaint would be that I would like to be able to get it at a discount with my Ulta coupons.I always get it from Ulta now because you are never out of stock when I need it.

                        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.
