      If you stipple this in with a dense kabuki brush rather than buff it, you can get a beautiful natural finish that lasts all day. I have tried nearly every mineral foundation on the market, and this is the absolute best!

          I love bare minerals, but I got the wrong color this time around, and I hate that i can exchange it...and frankly, it's just too expensive to just throw away. I will just continue with it till it's gone. :(

          Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

          I normally use the Original in Original Light spf 15, but wanted to try this because I have semi oily skin. I use this product in the morning for my 8+ hour day. I don't think it looks great when I first put it on, but looks better in an hour or so. It looks dry and uneven around my T-Zone and it doesn't give me very much coverage on the sides of my face. I feel like I overapply with this product and then I just look too dark or have too much makeup on. I have to remind myself that it will look better in an hour or so; i guess when your oils start to surface on your face. At least, that is what it does for me. I use more of this product than I did with the Original which I don't like. I tap the product in the cap maybe 4-5 times and with the original it was 2-3 at the most. I think the product gets lost in the brush or something. I have also tried different, new brushes and it doesn't help. Make sure your all over facial brush has been deep cleaned with vinegar and dawn as well. Mine had not been cleaned in a while. I cleaned it and it helped with the coverage, but still did not give me the great coverage I was looking for.

              I actually bought this product my mistake. I always use the Bare Mineral ORIGINAL and accidentally picked up the Matte. I do not care for the finish. It is very dull and not as radiant as the original. The original gives you that nice glow.

              The first time I tried this I expected miracles. I normally use liquid topped with concealer & I was hoping to lose the concealer. I can get decent coverage but it does take more time to buff it all in than liquid. I do prefer the finish to my liquids, matte but not chalky. I get very oily in my t-zone, maybe 2-3 hours, from liquids, this product controls it a little longer, maybe 4-5 hours, before gettting shiny.

                    For those who wear Bare Satin, we suggest Medium for medium complexions with cool undertones. You can certainly use MATTE over bareSkin for fuller coverage and a matte finish!
