    Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

    This is a great product up to a certain age. Mature skin needs more moisture. Only negative is that I can see a lot of the product flying away in the air, it's so light! Great that you can use two colors mixed for a perfect skin tone match.

      I have used Bare Minerals for several years and I will not use anything else! I love it! I like to have a natural look but need coverage because I'm getting older. This product gives me both!

          Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

          I was gifted this product so the color is a bit dark for my skin tone but I typically use this over my liquid foundation if I have a tan on. It goes on smoothly and covers up those areas that my liquid foundation didn't quite get. I highly recommend this if you are in the market for a powder foundation. Doesn't look cakey on the skin at all.

                  I use this product with the Physicians Formula CC cream for full coverage and bareMineral mineral veil to set it. If I am press for time, I would just use the foundation with the mineral veil.

                        If Light is too dark, we suggest switching to either Fairly Light or Golden Fair. We recommend testing these shades at your nearest ULTA store to determine your best match:

                        This product is designed to be buildable which allows you to decide how much or how little you need to achieve your desired look. BareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation will not settle into fine lines or wrinkles. To further protect makeup from settling into fine lines and wrinkles, we recommend prepping the skin with moisturizer and primer prior to application to ensure a smooth canvas. Try bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30, which serves as a tinted moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one, to smooth, protect, and perfect skin: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod6470091

                        If the mix is seeming a bit too warm/yellow, we suggest using Medium alone. Medium features more cool/pink undertones.

                        Both Original and Matte Foundations are formulated for all skin types and feature buildable sheer-to-full coverage, so which to use is a matter of personal preference, though many with combination/oily skin types prefer the matte finish that Matte Foundation provides.

                        A:

                        This foundation provides buildable sheer-to-full coverage, so you can easily achieve your desired level of coverage to fully conceal discoloration from acne scarring. bareMinerals concealers provide full coverage. To help improve texture of scarring, we suggest using a primer such as Prime Time underneath your foundation and concealer.
