    Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

    This was the very first foundation that I used when I first started wearing makeup. Which was when I was 16. I am 18 now & I've definitely evolved. I really enjoy this foundation because for me, personally, I don't have problematic skin. I'm just oily in my t-zone. I live in TX so that makes it somewhat worse. But with this, it's honestly so light-weight, blendable, and super easy to use. The fact that I used it everyday my sophomore year of high school did make the product run out quicker which sucked. But it's a great product for beginners & for people who aren't looking for too much coverage, but a natural look.

        Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

        i have used bareminerals since its beginning..this is the first time i had a hard time 'blending' it in. goes on kind of blotchy, but with a few extra seconds of effort i eventually get it smooth looking. i now use the mineral veil FIRST then the foundation after. makes it go on smoother.

            I tried this due to frequent breakouts with normal products. I will not use anything else now. No breakouts. I can build coverage based on occasion. I am in my mid-late forties...makes my skin look youthful. People have actually asked what I had done to my face. Definitely worth trying but recommend using it along with the Bare Minerals primer. I shop on a budget and will say the Bare Minerals product line lasts longer than any brand I have ever used...at least 3-4 times longer.

              I have used Medium Beige for over 10 years. I stopped for awhile but came back to it. U get a great look as I am an older woman and it does not crease in lines on UR face. No matter what makeup U use, U will refresh it at least once during the day. This is no exception. I have tried most of what is out there. Stopped looking when I found Bare Minerals! The Prime Time is a product of Bare Minerals U should start out with B4 starting UR foundation as it keeps everything in place, smooth & looking good! This has stopped my face from breaking out as it is without chemicals and it is very light when applied correctly. Just don't put it on too thick as it looks powdery.

              • Q:

                I can't make up my mind between the colors: Fairly Light and Golden Fair. Which one is the lightest shade? The only foundation that really matches me, is the Matchmasters foundation in shade 1.0 by M.A.C. I have a very porcelain skin, but with a slight yellowish skin tone, however, the NC15 of Studio Fix and Pro Long Wear were too dark for me, so I'm not sure if i'm a neutral or a yellow.

                I'm currently using bareminerals BARESKIN liquid foundation in Bare Shell 02. I'm looking to switch to the original powder foundation, but the current shade I have has a bit too much of a yellow undertone whereas my skin has pink undertones. what shade in the original foundation would best match? or would my best bet to be to go into an ULTA store and test colors?

              • Q:

                I currently wear this in the shade W15, what shade is that? I noticed they are now listed as Fair, Fairly light, medium and so on and I'm not sure what shade to choose. Also, I've been wearing the mate finish for a few years but have noticed my skin is a little drier now, would you recommend switching to the non-mate finish? What primer would I use for either one of them?

                  A:

                  W15 corresponds to Light.

                  Both Original & Matte Foundations are formulated for all skin types, so either one can be used on dry skin, depending on which finish you prefer (Original = radiant, Matte = matte). For best results on dry skin, moisturize and/or prime prior to application.

                  Both Original & Matte Foundations work beautifully paired with any of bareMinerals primers! Primer helps to smooth fine lines and pores as well as to extend foundation's wear. bareMinerals primers:
