      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.

          Getting a little bit older I am having an issue with oily skin. I have tried every powder and end up looking cakey after a few hours. This powder not only helps with that, but I can wear full coverage or medium coverage depending on my day and get the same results.

                    This product is exactly what I have been looking for! My sister recommended I buy it but I was reluctant because of the price and my tight budget. I'm so glad I finally forced myself to get this. Even though I have tried BB creams and foundations that claim to contain acne fighting ingredients, my skin only cleared up when I started using this. Plus, the application is a lot easier than I originally thought. BUY THIS!!!!!!!!!

                        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:
