              Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

              If you aren't buying this foundation, you are wasting your money. Right now, the container I'm using I've had for almost a year and I use it faithfully every single day. It covers up any blemishes I have and lasts all day! I use it all over my face and for concealer when I have any acne. It's also super gentle on the skin if you don't take it off at night. I used the regular bare minerals foundation at first, but the matte gives the best coverage and longest lasting by far. It's like day and night before and after I put it on. If you use it the right way, it will last for months and months!!

                        I was wearing Maybelline Matte foundation in medium beige and I purchased the BareMinerals original foundation in medium beige and it just seems too light in my opinion. What other shade may be more suited for me?

                          If Medium Beige is too light, a better match may be Medium Tan. We recommend visiting your nearest ULTA store for our complimentary shade matching services to help you determine your best match:

                          Fair is ideal for porcelain-to-light skin tones with cool undertones. Fairly Light is ideal for porcelain-to-light skin tones with neutral undertones.

                          bareMinerals foundations are formulated to apply smoothly and evenly and will not settle into fine lines or wrinkles. To further minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, we recommend first applying a primer such as bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer Original, which will help to create a smooth canvas for flawless foundation application:

                          bareMinerals MATTE 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: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2138921

                          All bareMinerals products are formulated to minimize skin irritation, allergy and discomfort. All bareMinerals foundations and facial moisturizers are tested to ensure that they have no potential for comedogenicity (won't clog pores). For medium complexions with peach undertones like yours, Medium Beige may be your best match. We recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store:
