    Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

    I had heard about bare minerals so many times, but didn't think it would be a product for me. While I love investing in eye shadow, eye liner, and mascara, I somewhat left my face powder to the way side. I used mineral powder, but it was the Ulta brand. I loved the powder, but by circumstance, my shade (and any remotely close to my tone) was out that day. I was pointed towards bare minerals, among a few others. Low and behold, I was missing such a great thing! I love the feel of it, the coverage, and it helps keep my face from getting shiny! I love love love this product. It is now my new go-to.

    Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

    I love BareMinerals - have been using it a long time. It makes a bit of a mess in my bathroom, so I tried the compact version, but it really does not smell very good. So I will continue to use this version. However, several years back they changed the container (I think to facilitate dispensing a certain amount into the top). But it is doesn't work the way it should and I keep transfering new jars into the old container (which is much easier to use). Other than that - love the product.

          I love to use the MATTE first, followed by the Original. I find the MATTE to keep my skin less oily, and the Original gives a prettier finish on top. Just a light application of each looks lovely.

                          A:

                          Both are oil-free and formulated for all skin types, so either would be suitable for you! 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. Because many with oily skin desire a shine-free finish, the most popular choice for those with oily skin is the Matte Foundation.

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.

                          We suggest Medium Beige as a suitable wintertime shade for you. This color is ideal for medium skin tones with neutral undertones, and it can be tested at your nearest ULTA store:

                        I have very fair skin with freckles and auburn hair. Which one would look more flattering for me, the fair or the fairly light? Also should I purchase the matte or the plain one?

                          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.

                        I am prone to acne and have really oily skin. I'm not really a make up person but some days I feel as if I need to cover up some spots on my face. So my question is will this cause me to break out even more cause I have really sensitive skin? And I'm not used to wearing foundation

                          All bareMinerals products are formulated to minimize skin irritation, allergy and discomfort. All bareMinerals foundations and facial moisturizers are tested to ensure that they have no potential for comedogenicity (won't clog pores). Because this foundation provides buildable coverage (sheer to full), it is ideal for those who are new to using foundation!

                          This product features a loose powder formula. You will find, however, upon application, that it has a blendable, almost creamy feel.

                          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:
