Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

I recently visited the magic skin IQ feature at a well known chain and learned that it suggested a different shade for me then I was historically purchasing. So I have been trying this new shade for almost a month now. Love the line but sometimes I look a little greasy so I decided to give the matte line a try. My acne prone skin agrees with this line and reminds me every time I try crossing to a different brand.

                Will this foundation work for really dry skin? I know it says it works for all skin types, but I am hesitant to purchase it because the idea of applying powder foundation to dry skin will make the skin look worse.

                  Hello YJL,,

                  If you had previously used shade Light W15, you would now use Light 08 in the BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Our recommendation for you in the barePRO pressed powder would be Golden Ivory 08.

                  Hello HeatherB,

                  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.
