    Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I am 74 years old. I've used Clinique make up since 1974 and have replaced some of their products with Bare Essentials over the past couple of years. The products don't irritate my skin and do a great job of covering blemishes on older skin. I still stick with some of my Clinique but the products I've gone to in Bare Essentials are wonderful.

          Perfect for an everyday look! Doesn't take long to apply, I use two coats to give me a better coverage. My face is kinda pale compared to my neck so this foundation powder gives me a glow! Don't forget to moisturize, add some primer and apply some translucent powder. You don't need much, but I recommend putting extra under your eye crease. I also apply NYX Matte setting spray! Overall I get great coverage!!

                  I used to use Bare Minerals when it first came out many many years ago before there was a matte version. I loved it and had not problems with the product. Now that I'm much older, this is definitely not for me or maybe the ingredients have changed. The original seems more luminous. I gives me too much of a glow. I don't like the matte version as it looks too powdery. Sorry not a fan anymore.

                        Hello Laurie,

                        We recommend using our shade finder to find your best match. We first suggest choosing you skin tone and then your undertone. If you find that you posses more red in your skin, you should choose cool. Yellow undertones would be golden. A mixture of both would be considered neutral undertones.

                      Years ago, I used summer bisque concealer because there wasn't a good match in original. I traded to bare pro in light natural 9. I have neutral undertones. I wanted to try the original again. I looked at the shade match and couldn't decide between two of the new shades.
                      Can you recommend a shade? I'm happy with bare pro except that I want spf. Should I just go back to summer bisque?
