    Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I jumped on the BareMinerals train about a year after it hit stores, and it provided exactly the amount of coverage I was looking for. I have normal skin, but I do have some unevenness in color. I use a very light liquid foundation as a base, and then buff this into my skin. I wear it every time I leave the house because of the SPF, and I love that I can control how much coverage I get. I'm not a person who looks great caked in makeup, so this has always been a very easy to use product as I can layer it as I need.

    I go through a container about every 8 months, which makes it a great value for me.

                  Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

                  All I can say was that the color was good. Seems to clump and look thick. Made my pores look worse. I have dry skin but with this product my face look oily and my glasses would slide down my nose....of course removing the bare minerals powder. I'll stick with my physician formula one instead. Total waste of money.
