    This brand has revamped their shades. So beware when choosing your go to shade. I wore light, which was a neutral, and now is golden. I looked a bit yellow that day. Had to return.

      I like my freckles but I also get some uneven skin and such. This product evens out my tones in a soft and smooth manner without making my freckles disappear. It does not cake on like other products and leaves my skin feeling soft and natural. It also does not clog my pours. I love it.

      I love this formula! Great, buildable coverage that lasts all day. I have dry skin and was a little worried it would accentuate dry spots, but it doesn't. The only downfall is it would be difficult to apply in the car if that's where you do your makeup in the mornings!

      I will definitely purchase this again.

          • Q:

            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.

              Hello MC,

              The BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 provides a luminous finish while the Matte Foundation is a Matte finish. 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.
