      Comments about bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation:

      I was so skeptical of this when it first came out because I assumed that a dry mineral powder wouldn't have good coverage like the infommercials at the time suggested. Fast forward many years; a new store opened by me and as a grand-opening special they had the kit for $20, so I bought it figuring if it didn't work, it only cost 20 bucks. Was I surprised! I had a very hard time at first with the application because I made the application VERY heavy which was ugly, and it made my face a bit shiny too as a result. Did some YouTube tutorials, got rid of my heavy hand with it, and it was a night and day difference. It cuts back on the time of my morning makeup routine too as its one step as opposed to the 3 or 4 steps I had with my liquid foundation. My one and only complaint is that it doesn't last my entire day, but the quick application makes it easy to do touch-ups. I absolutely recommend!

            I ran out of this product and went to Ulta to buy more. I was greeted by the IT rep who talked me into buying their product. I came back a week later to get the Bare Minerals. I like the way it goes on, and keeps down the shine on my face. I also like the improved dial a portion feature in the jar.

                      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!

                      Golden Medium for medium skin tones with yellow undertones or Medium Beige for medium skin tones with neutral undertones may be your best match. We suggest testing these two shades at your nearest ULTA store, where we offer complimentary shade matching services:

                      bareMinerals Original Foundation provides buildable full coverage, but to further conceal skin redness, first apply bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer, which features a subtle yellow tint that color-corrects redness and discoloration and will help to smooth skin's texture for a flawless, even complexion:
