I love Bare Minerals but don't buy it often because of the price. I wish you allowed coupons to be applied to the cost. I haven't purchased it in awhile but the clerk helped me find just the right color to match my skin tone.

      I've used this product since I was a teenager when it first came out. This is the only makeup I'll ever use. I've tried others, even within the brand but, I've always returned happily to the original. Dry skin, oily skin, no matter how my skin has been, this makeup has been the best for it.

          I went to Ulta to get color matched for this foundation because I have moderate rosecea. I am not sure if the Ulta employee matched me wrong or if it was the product is just that bad but this was horrible for me. It did cover my rosecea at first but by the end of the day it was patchy all over my face. It clung to every hair on my face and my pores looked horrendous by the middle of the work day. I tried this in every variation possible and still looked horrible. I do think I was matched wrong though, according to temptalia foundation matrix I should have been matched to a shade way darker. But thank God Ulta has an excellent return policy I got my Lorac Porefection powder and all is right again

                        Warm Tan 22 would be the new number. The shade has not changed, but please note that the BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 may slightly vary as it includes loose minerals. We recommend using our shade chart to see if you could potentially be a new shade as the shade range of this product has increased by 10 shades.
