    Seemed to cover well but emphasized my drier patches. Also, harder to match the color to my skin. I will probably purchase again though. Easy to use.

    I love love love this foundation. I have used all of the BE foundation and I always go back to this one. It is the one with the least ingredients so it does not irritate my skin, and covers everything. I love it!!! I will always use this from now on with the bisque.

              Provides good light-medium coverage without feeling heavy; feels good on the skin. Doesn't seem to cake up in wrinkles, so seems to be good for mature skin.

                Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

                This is my first time using foundation since I have always been terrified of getting the wrong colour and feeling like I was wearing a mask all day.
                I love it! It feels as if nothing is there and does not irritate my sensitive skin. It gives me the light coverage I wanted to cover my red spots around my nose and dark circles under my eyes. It also covers my break outs without making them worse. A little pricey than what I usually spend on makeup, but it lasts forever. Doesn't get greasy during the day either. Just wish it lasted longer. I am definitely going to keep using this in the future though!

                      My skin is very very dry. Every time I apply foundation & set it with powder it seems to get very patchy & flaky. What powder/loose powder do you recommend with my type of skin.

                        This product works well for all skin types including dry skin! For dry skin, we recommend prepping the skin with moisturizer and primer prior to application to ensure a smooth canvas. Try bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30, which serves as a tinted moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one, to smooth, protect, and perfect skin:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod6470091

                        Also, to eliminate flaky skin, exfoliate using a gentle scrub or peel a few times weekly. This should definitely help to improve your skin texture! Alternatively, you can use a super gentle exfoliating daily cleanser such as bareMinerals Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser, which is safe for twice daily use, to help get rid of flakiness:

                        bareMinerals Matte SPF 15 Foundation features a natural matte finish and is clinically proven to minimize the appearance of pores, while bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation features a soft luminous finish.

                      Hi, when I use this foundation should I use it alone and cover entire face with it ??? And before I apply it should I wash my face & use toner and lotion ? I'm confused with the order of things

                        We recommend cleansing/toning, applying serum and/or moisturizer, applying makeup primer (optional, but you may like bareMinerals Prime Time!), and then applying your foundation all over your face, buffing and blending until desired coverage is achieved.

                        Did Golden Tan work well for you? If it was still a bit too light, try instead Golden Dark for dark skin tones with golden undertones. We recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it is perfect for you:
