    Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I tried bare minerals for the first time around 10 years ago, and always seem to go back after trying other foundation. I love how it doesn't feel heavy on your face like liquid foundation does and that you can build your coverage. I have issues with breaking out, but when using bare minerals my skin breaks out a lot less. I definitely would recommend a primer. I use the bare minerals primer and feel my face looks less oily and my bare minerals stays on a lot longer and is easier to apply.

        Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

        I absolutely LOVE this foundation. It is long-lasting, and I have use it on a daily basis. It's very lightweight, and almost melts into my skin. I'd been having breakouts and flare-ups, and I started making dietary changes, switching the makeup I was using, etc. to try to alleviate the issue. When I switched to Bare Minerals Matte Foundation, I noticed a world of difference. I have combination skin, and it is perfect for all-day wear without a major sheen throughout my T-zone. I can't say enough great things about it! If you're on the fence, I implore you to try it out! The most difficult part for me was color matching in the store. I used the reference photos from the website, because the associate at Ulta did a poor job of finding the correct shade for me. I'm not sure if that was just MY experience (I hope so), but I strongly recommend using the reference photos found in the Q&A section to help you out, just in case you encounter a consultant who doesn't understand how to match the foundation very well. :)

          • Q:

            I have very oily skin. I don't use any type of make up because it is so oily. I have tried several oily skin face cleansers and they just don't work. I know I can't get rid of oily skin just like that, but does the matte foundation help minimize throughout the day? Without clogging up my pores?

              A:

              bareMinerals Matte SPF 15 Foundation features a natural matte finish and is clinically proven to minimize the appearance of pores. Because many with oily skin desire a shine-free finish, the most popular choice for those with oily skin is the Matte Foundation. All bareMinerals products are formulated to ensure no potential for comedogenicity. We also recommend first applying Prime Time Oil Control to help maintain a lasting matte finish:

          • Q:

            I have very dry skin in the winter. I want something medium to full coverage for the little bit of acne that I have. My biggest problem with foundation is that it clings to my dry skin patches on my face and makes it look bad. Would you recommend the matte or original mineral foundation? Thanks!

              A:

              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 Beauty store to see which you personally prefer:
