    I use this on my face after cleansing before foundation. It helps prevent any shine throughout the day. Hadn't tried the matte finish before, but I like it better than the regular finish.

    Comments about bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation:

    I began using Bare Minerals years ago and try to use liquid once in a while (to save money) but I always end up going back to this foundation. Though it is pricey for my budget; it goes on easily, lasts a long time and covers very well.

              • 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.
