              I love bare minerals powder. It goes on easily, covers well, and lasts the majority of the day. After having a baby my skin has been sensitive and this powder has been great for it! I use it daily and it's never to heavy!

                I started using bare mineral cleanser and moisturizer when over the Christmas holiday ulta had a special on a box with 3 facial steps. After using it my face felt and looked great. Then i went to an evdnt of bare minerals at the store. They used bare minerals products and made up my face. I bought make up in bare minerals. I love them. They are so light you don't feel like you have make up on.

                        Would you recommend this foundation for sensitive, yet oily skin? I'm looking for a foundation with good coverage that isn't going to cause breakouts! Also, something that is going to stay matte for a long period.

                          A:

                          Great question!

                          Compared to traditional foundation formulas, bareMinerals Original Foundation features a formula that is composed of 100% loose minerals and is formulated without parabens, binders, fillers, or synthetic chemicals, so it won't dry out your skin or cause breakouts or irritation. In fact, it is clinically proven to promote clearer, healthier-looking skin!

                          The minerals, surprisingly, have an almost creamy texture as you apply the foundation, so the results look very natural - never cakey - and won't crease or settle into fine lines or wrinkles.

                          We hope these extra details help! We encourage you to try this product - it is among our very favorite foundations! :-)
