      I worry about the health hazard of enhaling this foundation because it goes everywhere and on everything when I apply it
      It is a mess to clean off blinds, the floor, the tub, etc.

      The product itself is great!! My only complaint is the lid cannot be removed to get the last of the product (there are at least 3 days of product left in the container) Please go back to the old removable lid!

      More than I would normally spend on makeup but it keeps my skin from breaking out. Doesn't cover great, but for me it is better than a zillion zits. Also only lasts well for a few hours.

            I really wanted to love this product, and spent about $100 on Bare Minerals products thinking that I had found my new makeup, until I put 2 and 2 together. This product caused horrible cystic acne along my jawline like nothing I had ever had before. I thought there was no way it could be the BareMinerals until I googled it and realized it's common. This is the type of acne that takes months to go away, so I am ditching the BareMinerals and am hopeful for the first time in a couple months that my acne will go away.

            I like this product and always buy it. I get a lot of compliments on my skin and I think it provides pretty good (though not great) coverage. I do think it is a bit pricey,though. And I like that it's good for your skin, especially if you don't always wash off your makeup at night.

                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.

                A:

                We recommend cleansing/toning, applying serum and/or moisturizer, applying makeup primer (optional, but you may like bareMinerals Prime Time!), and then applying your foundation all over your face, buffing and blending until desired coverage is achieved.

              I am currently using Clinique, sand, in the pressed powder compact. It might be a little too dark for me. I want to switch to Bare Minerals I currently have medium tan and golden tan that I have tried. I do have a fairly dark complexion with some yellow undertone. What. Would be the best color for me?

                A:

                Did Golden Tan work well for you? If it was still a bit too light, try instead Golden Dark for dark skin tones with golden undertones. We recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it is perfect for you:
