        I am experimenting as I've never worn makeup before. I did not like the powder on its own, but it works great on top of a tinted moisturizer. I first tried it after a regular moisturizer and did not like how it looked, but after a tinted moisturizer, it blends much better and I like the overall look rather than using it or the tinted moisturizer alone.

                  Would you recommend this foundation for sensitive, yet oily skin? I'm looking for a foundation with good coverage that isn't going to cause breakouts! Also, something that is going to stay matte for a long period.

                    A:

                    Great question!

                    Compared to traditional foundation formulas, bareMinerals Original Foundation features a formula that is composed of 100% loose minerals and is formulated without parabens, binders, fillers, or synthetic chemicals, so it won't dry out your skin or cause breakouts or irritation. In fact, it is clinically proven to promote clearer, healthier-looking skin!

                    The minerals, surprisingly, have an almost creamy texture as you apply the foundation, so the results look very natural - never cakey - and won't crease or settle into fine lines or wrinkles.

                    We hope these extra details help! We encourage you to try this product - it is among our very favorite foundations! :-)

                    All bareMinerals foundations and facial moisturizers are tested to ensure that they have no potential for comedogenicity, so they won't clog pores or cause breakouts.
