    Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

    I am thrilled that Bare Minerals finally expanded their makeup line for women of color. I tried Bare Minerals approx. 10 years ago with the hopes of being able to use their makeup. Sadly disappointed. But NOW since their variety/expansion of colors, this medium brown skinned outsider has become an insider/user. I have oily skin and wanted a natural look. Just a light application of the Bare Minerals' matte finish gives me the natural look I want! Hello Bare Minerals and good bye MAC!

      I use the "powder" every day without fail. It's wonderful coverage for my many facial imperfections and doesn't clog my pores like many other powders on the market do. I would recommend this product for everyone with every skin condition.

                  The matte really takes away from the original natural look. People with oil skin probably love this product more.

                      Is Golden Medium slightly darker than Medium Beige? I currently use Med Beige, but it is slightly too light now in summer and I have more of a gold cast to my skin. Trying to decide between Golden Medium, or trying Golden Tan.

                        Golden Medium is the same depth of color as Medium Beige, just with a different, more yellow/golden undertone. We suggest testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store:

                        A:

                        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:

                      Hello, I have oily skin and would like to know if it is best to apply a moisturizer then a primer before using this foundation or can I just use a primer only. I usually use a dab of almond oil as a moisturizer. Also, will this foundation need reapplication after just 8 hours?

                        A:

                        You could certainly apply a primer alone, based on your skin's needs, prior to foundation application. For those with oily skin, we recommend bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod4380093

                        This foundation is clinically tested to provide up to 8 hours of wear, though if you apply a primer underneath it, you could see even more long lasting results.
