    I use this product daily absolutely love it. I have sensitive and acne prone skin and there minerals has been the only make up I skin will not react to. Coverage is not 100% like Mac make up, but at least I feel good not clogging my pores. The matte finish really helps with oil.

      Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

      After using the original formula for years I wanted to switch to a matte finish to help hide a very deep scar on my nose. For that, it's great. Applying to my cheeks it does not blend as well and does not cover my redness as well as the original. I have to use more and it takes longer. I'm 37 and my cheek skin isn't as tight as it used to be and the reflectiveness of the original smoothed me out better. I think I'll go back to the original and dust a matte powder only on my nose. I also look very dry and lifeless with this on.
      *the colors do not match the original formula so make sure you're color matched.

        I this as an all over makeup on top of a little concealer under my eyes and it blends perfectly. It looks just like flawless skin and not so much as makeup. It doesn't even give the appearance that your wearing makeup. And I've worked in it all day (12 hrs) and it was still perfectly fresh. A definite must buy!
