            I have sensitive skin and I tend to Get cystic acne easily. But i have been wearing this For 4 years. Not cystic acne at all. Very impressed with them. Any brand will work but I like this brand the best because it doesn't run out fast. U don't need much. It covers your flawed skin very well. Lasts longer. Less oily looking too.

                      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. :(

                              bareMinerals Matte SPF 15 Foundation features a natural matte finish and is clinically proven to minimize the appearance of pores, while bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation features a soft luminous finish. Both Matte and Original are designed for all skin types including dry skin; many with dry skin prefer Original's dewy finish, but we recommend trying both at your nearest ULTA store to see which you personally prefer:

                              MATTE Foundation provides buildable coverage, from sheer to full. Your best match may be Medium Beige for medium skin tones with neutral undertones, though we suggest visiting your nearest ULTA store for complimentary shade matching to ensure this shade is perfect for you:

                            Revlon Airbrush Photo Ready #50 medium beige is a perfect match for me. Can you please tell me what shade in the Bare Minerals matte would be best? Thank you.
