Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

The first time I tried this I expected miracles. I normally use liquid topped with concealer & I was hoping to lose the concealer. I can get decent coverage but it does take more time to buff it all in than liquid. I do prefer the finish to my liquids, matte but not chalky. I get very oily in my t-zone, maybe 2-3 hours, from liquids, this product controls it a little longer, maybe 4-5 hours, before gettting shiny.

      I am 22, and i have tried lots of stuff from mac foundation to drug store, and for some reason like i have no idea why nothing ever looked good on me the foundation and i have no idea why all foundations would splotch up or make me have little make up dots though out the night and oncce again i have no idea why. But this make up is awesome and quick lasts long time with even color and i always gotta go back to this.. I truly love it!

                For those who wear Bare Satin, we suggest Medium for medium complexions with cool undertones. You can certainly use MATTE over bareSkin for fuller coverage and a matte finish!
