            Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I've never used this powder without a liquid foundation underneath. I don't necessarily like a heavy powder and certainly not a matte powder because I have dry and non-oily skin. I find that this on top of a dewy liquid foundation gives me the perfect dewy look that I'm looking for.
