Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

I love the coverage and the weightlessness of this foundation. It blends well and you control how much coverage you need. I've been using Bare Minerals for 7 years now and will never use anything else. I have hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating disorder), and this doesn't melt away like most foundations. Just make sure you use a powder foundation brush, that is very important!

        Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

        I apply the bare minerals powder on face in the morning. Looks good. By the end of day it seems it had came off. Maybe a better liquid foundation before applying the powder would help. Besides that I like the product. I highly suggest coupons as well as sales and offers to people that use it a lot since it is pricy. I think the price is high for this product.

            I love how it blends to my skin. I have used several foundations, more expensive ones too and I keep coming back to bare minerals. It gives me enough coverage and it looks natural not cakey like other foundations.

            • Q:

              I normally set my liquid foundations with translucent powder because of my oily skin. Will this foundation last without a finishing powder or is it recommended to follow through with one?

                A:

                bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation provides buildable sheer-to-full coverage for up to 8 hours on its own, so using a setting powder such as Mineral Veil is completely optional. bareMinerals Mineral Veil is a sheer finishing powder that can be applied to set your foundation or worn alone to absorb excess oil and minimize imperfections.

                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:
