    I really enjoy Bare mineral products and have never had one problem when I use them. My skin is extremely sensitive and Bare mineral products do not irritate it at all

        I use this each morning with primer and blush. That's all I need. The coverage is unbeatable, and I have to admit, I was very hesitant to switch from a full coverage liquid to this. My skin does not break out nearly as often. The concealer brush lets me spot touch any blemishes. It covers so much better than the concealer sticks. I will never switch foundations!

          Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

          I am so glad I tried Bare Minerals! I have redness from acne scars and that I like to cover. After my dermatologist suggested I use a mineral makeup I decided to try it. Not only is it good for your skin but it covers redness so well! It looks so natural, never cakey. It is so easy to apply; you literally just tap some product into the lid, swirl it in the lid, tap it, and swirl on your face.

          You can't even tell I have makeup on unless you know what my skin looks like without makeup. I always recommend my friends and family to give bare minerals a try because it is SO GREAT! I can't say enough good things about it.

                When I use a creamy foundation, my face feels greasy all day and like I have a mask on. With this product, it doesn't feel like I'm wearing foundation. It does last most of the day with me without retouching.

Best facial product on the market. Thank you Bare Minerals. Do not be fooled by other competitors, they are not equal in quality.

                      A:

                      Both Matte and Original formulas provide up to 8 hours of buildable sheer-to-full coverage. The main difference is the finish, matte vs. luminous ("dewy"), so which to choose is a matter of personal preference. We recommend testing both formulas at your nearest ULTA store to see which you prefer:

                      Both Matte and Original look gorgeously natural on skin of all ages!

                    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.
