        Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

        I went to ulta(clearwater, FL) on April 16 when they had a bare minerals makeup or skincare event. I began using the 3 step cleansing when they had a trial set at christmas. I loved it immediately and since i was already using the powder foundation I thought why not go and let them do aa make over. A very nice young lady, Michelle, (Ulta Clearwater, FL) did an excellent job. She did point out that i was using the matte foundation and i should be using the original cause the matte is for dry skin and I don't have dry skin. I purchased all the products she used on my face. I'm so glad I went that day. And a bigthank you to Michelle.

                        I bought this product first time a few weeks ago and I fell in love! It is hard to find a foundation that exactly matches your skin tone, plus covers well and stays on through the day! This is a super good foundation, goes on almost like silk! It blends really well and doesn't leave my skin looking blotchy. I will never buy any other foundation again, well worth the money! ❤️

                            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! :-)
