    Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

    I love this product! I discovered Bare Minerals one day while watching an infomercial. I went to my local ULTA store, got matched up with Golden Tan matte, and it looks beautiful and natural on my skin. I have combination skin and the matte formula really helps absorb the oil. I'm so happy with this product! I'm 47 years old and I'm often mistaken as someone in my 30s. Wearing this lightweight, breathable makeup is excellent. I also love the inexpensive price!

      Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

      I love this foundation. It is my go to foundation and can be used everyday. The coverage is buildable and I also use it as a light powder finish when I use liquid foundation. I also love using this product with my BeautyBlender for a smooth finish. The only con I have is that the powder can get a little messy if you are not careful with the excess powder that you don't need.

        Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

        I have used bare minerals foundation for almost 10 years. I started using the matte foundation about 4 years ago. This foundation is great for someone who wants a light to medium coverage. I have a lot of redness and acne scars, so I use the bare minerals foundation first then I use a concealer in the areas that I need more coverage. I am Asian and I have fair skin so I like that there are several shades that have a yellow/golden undertone. In the summer I can wear golden medium and currently I am using light and golden fair in the areas that I highlight.

              I have oily skin in my t zone...breakouts vary from time to time, but mostly clear skin. The Matte was just too heavy for me and looked cakey. I prefer the original.mthis was really Matte...I like the dewy look of the Original.

                    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.

                    bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation works beautifully for skin of all ages! The loose mineral powder actually has a surprisingly creamy, blendable consistency once applied to the skin. It won't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. To further minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, apply a primer such as bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer Original prior to foundation application to ensure a perfectly smooth canvas: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2138921

                  I've recently been using Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage in medium honey. Unfortunately, as I have very sensitive, acne-prone skin I ended up with a horrible breakout. Is this formula a safe one for sensitive skin? What shade would I be?

                    All bareMinerals products are formulated to minimize skin irritation, allergy and discomfort. All bareMinerals foundations and facial moisturizers are tested to ensure that they have no potential for comedogenicity (won't clog pores). For medium complexions with peach undertones like yours, Medium Beige may be your best match. We recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store:
