          Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

          It took a couple of tries to get my right shade, I'm right between neutral and cool so often cool is just a bit too cool and neutral is too yellow so I found mixing 2 shades is perfect for my winter tone at least! I think this product is super cost effective because you use such a tiny amount it will take forever to get through. I love that this has some SPF to it as well so I know I'm covered without even thinking about it. It does such a great job at covering where I need it to and making my skin look super even and happy. The original formula gives you a nice fresh look to your skin while the matte is obviously matte but also nice if you like that look! One tip is to use a small amount at first then build coverage as you need it, if you go in hard at first you can definitely make yourself look cakey, I really only have that issue around my nose/above my lips if I used too much. Starting on the outer edges of your face and blending in creates a pretty much flawless canvas for your other products. This doesn't feel drying at all either, I have pretty dry skin in the winter as well. I never ever thought I'd like a powder foundation but BareMinerals seriously blew me away! I wish I'd tried it sooner!

                      I wear wheat in the complexion rescue tinted moisturizer. What color in the mineral powder foundation would be comparable to this color? Medium seems to be too dark and the medium beige is way too light.

Please also note that the ingredients differ slightly. We would suggest viewing each item's ingredient list which can be found on each item's product page.
