            I apply the bare minerals matte formula every day. I find that its spf protects me very well from sun exposure. I especially appreciate the addition of the fairly medium shade, as I had been using the medium shade previously. I only have favorable comments about this product.

                  I have tried many different foundations but always come back to Bare Minerals. It is good for my skin and provides the right coverage for me. In the summer I have to touch up so it does not set in the lines around my mouth.

                    I don't use much makeup and this goes on very fast and easy and lasts all day. Sometimes I'm too tired to wash my face so sleep in it also and it does not clog pores. People say I have perfect, wonderful skin all the time. It's thanks to BareMinerals Matte foundation.

                        All bareMinerals foundations are formulated for all skin types, so any would work well for you! We suggest testing the finish and consistency of each at your nearest ULTA store to determine which formula you prefer:

                        If you are new to bareMinerals, we recommend visiting your nearest ULTA store for complimentary shade matching to determine your best match:

                        For those with rosacea or with skin allergies, we always recommend consulting your physician and/or conducting a patch test prior to introducing any new product into your regimen.

                        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:
