      Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

      I don't usually buy high end makeup, but I had to see what all the fuss was about. Bareminerals is the best foundation I've tried and worth the price. It feels light and actually covers breakouts without piling on additional concealer. It gives my skin a nice glow but not shiny. Definitely recommend and will buy again when this runs out.

                  Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

                  I have worn Bare Minerals for years and will not wear another foundation. My face no longer gets breakouts and this brand is recommended by my dermatologist. Covers wonderfully. Feels like you're not wearing make-up. Only 'con' is that once you're done with a container, there is some powder left between the base and the plastic on top of the base where you shake the powder out. I usually pry the top and bottom off and try to get every last drop of powder, but wish this wasn't the case and the container was re-designed to have all powder accessible until it's 100% gone.

                  • Q:

                    I'm currently using bareminerals BARESKIN liquid foundation in Bare Shell 02. I'm looking to switch to the original powder foundation, but the current shade I have has a bit too much of a yellow undertone whereas my skin has pink undertones. what shade in the original foundation would best match? or would my best bet to be to go into an ULTA store and test colors?

                  • Q:

                    I currently wear this in the shade W15, what shade is that? I noticed they are now listed as Fair, Fairly light, medium and so on and I'm not sure what shade to choose. Also, I've been wearing the mate finish for a few years but have noticed my skin is a little drier now, would you recommend switching to the non-mate finish? What primer would I use for either one of them?

                      A:

                      W15 corresponds to Light.

                      Both Original & Matte Foundations are formulated for all skin types, so either one can be used on dry skin, depending on which finish you prefer (Original = radiant, Matte = matte). For best results on dry skin, moisturize and/or prime prior to application.

                      Both Original & Matte Foundations work beautifully paired with any of bareMinerals primers! Primer helps to smooth fine lines and pores as well as to extend foundation's wear. bareMinerals primers:
