I love this product! I am so glad I decided to try it. It covers so well. I just don't know if I touch my face a lot because by the end of my work day it just looks like it came all off. Other than that, I love it!

        I now see what all the fuss is about-this is a great product. It blends well, is lightweight and long lasting. This is perfect for those who like a little coverage, but want to look natural. Bare Minerals is cruelty-free, too!

                The brush to apply the product is expensive and you have to clean it properly, but this stuff really makes my skin "Glow." I loved my old compressed powder for years and years, but this stuff is great now that I am into my mid-twenties.

                  I use this product daily and love it. After years of searching for makeup that didn't cause hives or burning on my skin that also contained spf, this has been a true blessing. It lasts me nearly a year at a time, I don't need heavy coverage.

                    Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

                    The product has good light to medium coverage for mature skin without the chalky or cakey finish that I have found with many liquid products as I have aged. I tried several unsatisfactory products before finding Bare Minerals. I also found a very good match for my skin which has a yellow tone.

                      I currently use medium in the bare minerals. How does the fairly medium compare in color and coverage. Is it lighter, would it be good for the fall winter months. I also have rosacea, so I don't want any red or orange tint. Thanks

                        All shades provide the same buildable coverage. Fairly Medium is ideal for light-to-medium complexions with cool undertones, while Medium works best for medium skin tones with cool undertones. We recommend testing Fairly Medium at your nearest ULTA store:

                      Does this product work well over a BB cream? I find that even with a moisturizer and primer (I used the bareminerals primer) that it still makes my skin look dry and I thought maybe a bb cream under it might help not to dry out my skin..

                        Absolutely, bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation layers beautifully over BB cream. If you still plan to use Prime Time primer, we recommend first applying moisturizer/BB cream, then primer, then foundation for best results.

                        You can certainly layer Original Foundation over bareSkin Foundation to achieve more coverage; however, you can achieve full coverage with either product on its own. It's up to you!
