    This is the only foundation I've ever been able to stand to wear. It makes my skin look great, and I don't feel made up. It's so easy to apply. It's kind of pricey, but it lasts a long time.

      Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

      I have been using bare minerals for years and have tried just about every liquid foundation out there and I hate how they make me feel so oily. Bare minerals foundation never makes my skin feel like it can't breathe or is heavy and it is fool proof to apply. I've always recommended this product to friends and family and they are always so happy that I do!

        Not for dry skin

        About Me Budget Buyer

        Pros

        • Good Coverage
        • Good Pigmentation

        Cons

        • Looks Flaky
        • Not for Dry Skin

        Best Uses

        • Full Coverage
        • Normal Skin

        Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

        -Definitely not for dry skin--it just accentuates the flakiness, even with a primer. If you have normal skin, it might work better for you, or even oily skin; it's nicely matte for that.

        -For me, I generally have to buy the lightest shade available from any makeup line, but Bare Minerals' lightest shade was too light for me! That's a pro, for my fellow porcelain beauties :)

        But thanks, Ulta, for having a generous return policy that allows us to try out different products! Worry-free!

                    A:

                    Free of preservatives and irritants that could cause breakouts, bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation is actually good for your skin! Both powder and liquid formulas are safe for sensitive skin. bareSkin Foundation is hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic.

                  Do I need to buy the powder and the liquid foundation? Or is it meant to be a one-or-the-other kind of thing?

                    A:

                    You can certainly layer Original Foundation over bareSkin Foundation to achieve more coverage; however, you can achieve full coverage with either product on its own. It's up to you!

                    Golden Medium for medium skin tones with yellow undertones or Medium Beige for medium skin tones with neutral undertones may be your best match. We suggest testing these two shades at your nearest ULTA store, where we offer complimentary shade matching services:

                    bareMinerals Original Foundation provides buildable full coverage, but to further conceal skin redness, first apply bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer, which features a subtle yellow tint that color-corrects redness and discoloration and will help to smooth skin's texture for a flawless, even complexion:
