    Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

    I purchased this product to use as a setting powder. I have oily skin and product just slides around my skin without a powder. This powder adds a bit more coverage which makes it easier for me to use a sheerer foundation and totally keeps things matte. Love it!

                • Q:

                  Hello I was curious in trying this product as it would be my first time and was wondering if I need to wear anything else with it? Is it basically a cream and powder in one? Normally I'll wear my BB cream then a little powder on top. So does this product act as the 2? Also should I use a primer and if so what kind do you recommend?

                    A:

                    MATTE Foundation is a loose mineral powder foundation. We recommend applying it to moisturized skin for best results; primer such as Prime Time is optional, since this foundation provides up to 8 hours of wear on its own! Setting powder such as Mineral Veil is also optional; if you have oily skin, you may prefer to use Mineral Veil over top and apply throughout the day as needed to absorb excess shine.

                    A:

                    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. We recommend testing both shades at your nearest ULTA store, where we offer complimentary shade matching services:
                    http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                    Both Matte and Original are formulated for all skin types; Original features a natural, luminous finish, while Matte features a matte finish. We suggest testing both to see which you prefer.
