    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.

                        I started using Barepro, and it's the only liquid foundation I have ever used/ liked, and I was wondering if I could use this over the Barepro? I was also wondering if this controls oil at all?

                          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.

                        I have fair skin with rosacea. Looking at the samples painted on the ladies arm in the picture they all look pretty dark. Even the light shades. I was going to go with a light shade for cool undertones before seeing the samples on the ladies arm. Now I'm thinking I should choose the fair, but I don't want to look washed out. I am pale, but my rosacea has reddened my face and made it very blotchy in various places. Do you have any suggestions on what color I should try?
