Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

I love bareminerals, but was not satisfied with this product. I have oily, acne prone skin, also can be dry at times. I thought this would be great to help with oily part of my skin but seemed to make it worse. By an hour my face would start to look oily, and my blemishes more visible. I wanted to use this as a full coverage for my blemishes but this was not it. I would recommend this to someone looking for light coverage, and normal skin.

    I always buy Bare Minerals Original foundation and I love it. The matte foundation did not cover my rosacea at all. I'm very disappointed, I wish I had waited for the other product to be in stock.

    I love this foundation. It is the only one I buy! It's full coverage with a matte finish. It's a little pricey, but I believe it's worth it. One jar lasts me almost three months. You don't need much to apply all over. I would reccomend this to anyone!

        I have used Bare Minerals foundation exclusively for many years. So glad that I can buy in store at ULTA. Great for daily use. Best when using the Bare Minerals Foundation brushes. Have tried in the original foundation, but Matte makeup is better for blending. I have sensitive skin and have not had any reactions when using.

            I had high hopes for this. Covers absolutely nothing, sinks in to lines I didn't even know I had, I have dry skin but it made my skin oily in some areas and dried out in others. Wanted to like this but it did nothing for me

              I have sensitive skin that is oiky and acne prone. I have heard so many great things about this foumdation and a lot of my friends recommend it to me. I just wanted to know, simce this is a matte finish foundation, if I would need to set it with powder. I scared that the powder would take away to glow affect a d make my face look cakey. Should someone with my type of skin set this foundation with powder? And if so, do you recommend any powders that go good with this foundation?

                A:

                Setting using finishing powder such as Mineral Veil is totally optional! Many do wear Matte Foundation alone. Please note, though, that Mineral Veil is very refined and never looks cakey, if you do choose to use it to set your foundation.
