Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

You could call me biased because I love Bare Escentuals anything and everything. I have been using this same foundation (different shades) over the past 10 years. I am 28 and have finally gotten over the acne-prone skin. But even when I would have breakouts this foundation would really help my skin. It blends very well and hides any acne scars, dark circles, uneven skin tone. Will continue to use it!

              Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

              I love using this for everyday. And you only need to use a small amount for an even skintone. I don't really need much coverage since I'm still a teenager, so the foundation works nicely for me. And I live in a warm and humid climate so the foundation doesn't feel heavy. It also gives a nice glow and not a "masked" look as some liquid foundations tend to give. It looks like a second skin or a better version of your skin.

                      You are absolutely correct. Medium is ideal for medium complexions with cool/pink undertones.
