natural, and beautiful

By Lauren

from New Jersey

Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

This foundation is perfect for my skin. I have sensitive skin and tend to break out very easily. This foundation lets your skin breathe, and looks so natural. This has buildable coverage. You can always add more for more coverage. I also feel it does not need touch ups throughout the day.

    Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

    I struggled with adult acne several years ago and didn't think a powder could give me the coverage I needed. I tried it on a whim a few years ago and would not trade it. I have the coverage I want, it is lightweight, and it doesn't break me out. Love it.

      I've used Bare Minerals since it was first introduced, so a long time! Covers evenly, and doesn't crease into fine lines; won't clog pores - I even sleep in it sometimes. Since I've been wearing Bare Minerals, I get compliments on my skin all of the time!

          It makes you skin super oily though.

            Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

            Everyone has always told me about this product and claims it is the best, but it is expensive and I figured it was all hype and no delivery. I was wrong. I switched recently and my skin has never looked better. I am extremely pale and require the lightest shade available which in most companies has a very yellow undertone or manages to make me look like a ghost. This one has a very nice pigmentation to it and adds a dewy glow to my skin. It is very light on the face and gentle for my acne-prone skin. I will never go back to any other product.

              I use it every day for medium to full coverage and the color really blends in well with my skintone, I like the sheen that the original gives your skin and how it really makes you look almost flawless.

                I use it everyday to go to work. I'm happy that it looks natural on my skin and it doesn't look cake-y. I'm very glad that it not only covers my breakouts, it also doesn't cause any breakouts. Even though I'm still a newbie at putting foundation, this seems to hide that fact (that is if I don't get too carried away with adding foundation to my face).

                    I originally received this product as a gift, and I had asked for it because I thought it would set my foundation and concealer, as well as make my skin look less oily without looking two-dimensional (like some "matte" foundations sometimes do). My nose tends to look shiny. When I applied this product, all of the shine on my nose was still entirely there. I love this for setting my foundation and concealer, but I will definitely have to look for something else to hide my shine.

                          bareMinerals 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:
