            This product is a dream in humid weather, much better milling than any "drug-store" brand because you use so little it' actually a better purchase. No clogged pores, no breaking out for 10 years. Can be a sheer or full coverage as you want, can use translucent power over if you want. I don't use the "matte" line, I use the original.

                  I originally started buying this for my daughters but one of them didn't like it so I finished the jar and LOVED it! I have been using this for almost 10 years and keep coming back to it. I have tried using other brands and liquids but they just don't compare.

                    • Q:

                      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.

                        Thank you for your question. Happy to hear you are already a Bare Minerals Customer. I can recommend a great product for your Highlighting needs. The Invisible Light Translucent Duo has two translucent powders in the compact. The matte absorbs oil and creates an even, long lasting, youthful looking finish. The glow, which will suit your needs, is infused with rose gold pearls and adds sheer luminosity for highlighting and strobing. I would also recommend the Dual-Finish Blush and Contour brush for the best application. Happy Shopping!

                        A:

                        Hey, Bre! Great questions!

                        Since your skin is more Combination (oily in some area, dry in others), the best way to ensure that your makeup will apply best is with the right skincare. If you're able to, purchase our Smart Combination moisturizer for day and night. That will help to ensure your skin gets the nourishment it needs day and night.

                        This foundation will give your skin a beautiful, luminous glow. Keep in mind that in areas where you're more oily, you may want to use Mineral Veil on top to help mattify the skin more.

                        I will certainly encourage you to stop by your nearest store and try our products together with a beauty expert. That way, you can be matched up with the perfect color and see it in conjunction with our other lineup.

                        Good luck!

                        Because our Original Foundation is made of minerals which buff on as a cream, you can choose to use a liquid concealer BEFORE or AFTER you've applied Original. I would try it both ways and see which one wears best throughout the day.

                        Medium or Medium Beige could be lighter options for your winter skin. I would recommend that you stop by your nearest Ulta to see one of our Experts to get shade matched to the appropriate shade for your complexion.
