Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

I have been using Bare Minerals for over 10 years. I've strayed a few times, but always end up going back to Bare Minerals. I hate the heaviness and unnatural look of liquid foundation and it always makes me breakout. With Bare Minerals I get decent coverage and I love that it doesn't cause my skin to break out or feel heavy. I do use Tarte Shape Tape along with this foundation, as I have horrible dark circles and some occasional acne. Bare Minerals provides more of a medium coverage for my skin, so I still need to use a concealer for additional coverage. I use matte medium beige and it helps keep my oily skin in check. I have light/medium olive skin and I'm in my late 30's.

    Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I love this foundation for use in the summertime, it works very well for my skin in that environment and lasts for a long time. However, I do shy away from using it during the winter. It seems no matter how well I moisturize and whether I apply primer or not, the environment is too dry and the powder sits on my face, doesn't blend as well, and doesn't look as natural. Since I use different shades of foundation during the summer and winter anyway, this isn't too big a deal for me and I use a lightweight liquid foundation during the winter.

      Easy to apply but doesn't give good coverage, Ive used bare minerals before and never had this issue, not sure if they changed anything with the ingredients but the quality isn't as good. It smears easily throughout the day and doesn't blend well. Will not purchase this again.

      I have a love/hate relationship with this one. I love that it's really easy to apply & definitely covers up my blemishes. But claiming it to be for oily skin? Im not sure if I agree with that. I work from 8-3pm. Around 10/11am, my oils definitely starts to seep through and it just looks really gross and oily. I gave it 3 stars cuz i know i can work with it, i could use blotting papers, but i really expected so much more from this product & to keep me matte all day.

            Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I had not used this product for 11 years. At the time I used it, I was 40 yeas old, going through chemo for breast cancer - I was a make up girl, and even without hair to do, I still did my makeup when I went out .
            12 years later, I decided to try Bareminerals again - I remembered how my husband loved their cosmetics on me ( no smell, natural looking ) ,and how Bareminerals covered redness, scars, etc...
            I have been very pleased so far - I was worried that the buffing would scuff up any dry flakes ( I get a few along laugh lines, nose, and lower corner lips area) and cause attention to any tiny wrinkles ( I have been lucky so far not to have deep wrinkles or creases).
            It has not scuffed up anything or made wrinkles more noticeable that I already would have using other brand foundations. Actually, issues seem to be a tad less noticeable.
            There is no sparkle or sheen, this foundation is a true matte , which I am glad for.
            Goes on well, the heat from skin helps it blend, and give it a few seconds, the coverage "cures", sinks in, and continues to cover redness, scars, imperfections.
            It can take a few minutes to apply - to get used to how the product buffs on, and adjust for more coverage if needed.
            Longevity of wear is good for me, about 12 hours or so looking good, and I have been wearing a primer .
            I did not buy the Mineral Veil, I do use a luxury setting powder though.
            I do use the Bareminerals concealer with the foundation - it does cover any bit of redness /imperfections that need a bit more attention .
            I like that the container has a lock inside to keep product from spilling out.
            What I did not like is that the powder doesn't come with it`s own brush.
            For a full size foundation purchase, it should at least include a mini Kabuki brush.
            This to me, is my go-to for a more natural makeup look - great coverage ,without a big made up look.
