bareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is a clean, loose powder foundation made with just 5 mineral ingredients for breathable, buildable, sheer-to-full coverage that's naturally luminous.

Meet the mineral makeup that changed everything. Original Foundation SPF 15 is a clean, 100% vegan formula made with only 5 mineral ingredients. It gives you a naturally luminous finish that feels weightless, wears all day, and won't clog your pores or cause breakouts. It's Makeup So Pure You Can Sleep In It!

The effortlessly buildable formula lets you customize your coverage from sheer to full. When you use the signature SWIRL, TAP, BUFF method, the mineral pigments transform into a silky cream that blends seamlessly onto your skin, feels feather-light, and won't settle into pores or fine lines. You'll have a naturally luminous and healthy look, with the flawless finish of a liquid foundation and the feels-amazing breathability of a powder. No wonder it's the #1 Prestige Loose Mineral Foundation in the U.S.*

Plus, mineral sunscreens give you safe and effective chemical-free protection from damaging UVA/UVB rays. It's everything your skin needs...and nothing it doesn't!

          My "brown spots" as appearing more and more the older I get. This does cover, but is too dark. The next step down color is too light. so, I am mixing them together.

                      I've always used medium for years, I just got my order of medium 10 because medium wasn't a choice. Is this going to be the same? I also was supposed to receive a free skin sample, and it didn't come even though the included shipping receipt said it was in there. This is the first time I've ordered online.

                        The bareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 has updated their shade range by 10 colors and also changed their numbers. If you had previously used Medium, Medium 10 would now be your shade.

                        A:

                        Hello, the amount of time your foundation lasts depends on the amount used and also the frequency of use. The bareMinerals Original Foundation is build-able. We recommend starting with a small amount to determine how much is needed. You can easily pour out small amounts at a time in the cap to swirl, tap and buff.
