Most Helpful Positive Review A natural photoshop finish, truly the BEST!
I've been using this foundation for over 10 years and I will never, ever switch. My skin doesn't break out anymore and has looked so much better since using BM. I have combo skin and the matte formula gives you a finish that looks like it was done by a professional. You don't need filters on your photos when you use BM makeup. All of my friends have switched because they loved how it looks. It is so easy to use and I will forever love the loose powder. It lasts a long time, and never gets wasted. Pressed powder always eventually cracks and falls wasted into the sink. With the loose powder, you just tap off the excess, getting your moneys worth. I work 12 hour shifts and it still looks good at the end of my shift. The shades are spot on, there is a match for every skin tone out there. It never looks orange or cakey and feels AMAZING on my skin. I feel like I'm wearing nothing but still have full coverage. Everyone needs to have this loose foundation in matte or original in their makeup bag because there is nothing out there as good as this!
Most Helpful Critical Review never again!
Lets just start by saying I have been using BE products for over 4years. Loved the original foundation but in the summer at times made me look to shiny. So I decided to try the matte version. The colors are slightly darker than the orginal. Coverage is much more sheer so I feel I would use a jar of this up much faster needing to use more to get the coverage I like. Felt heavy on my skin and my skin also felt tight. Did like the finish it left but after using this for a month or so it broke my skin out very bad. Pimples and lots of redness like my skin was burned. I will be going back to the original and will never ever put this version near my skin again. So if your skin is sensitve I woul be very careful about this matte version.

I normally wear Medium 10 but I decided to try a different color so I got Soft Medium 11. I tried mixing them half and half but the #11 was to dark so now I am adding just a tiny bit of #11 to my #10. That is looking better.

Product settled into the creases in my face and made me look older, dry, and leather-like.

I tried the original foundation in the late 2000s when I was a teenager, and it was a nice foundation. Now, I'm 28 and while my skin is still relatively healthy, I have more enlarged pores, a few fine lines and my t-zone gets very oily. The Ulta associate recommended I try this, but I don't think she understood the issues I have with my skin. This foundation will suck out ANY hydration whatsoever. Even with my go-to moisturizer underneath, it still didn't work. It accentuates the lines in my forehead, sits on top of my pores while making them stand out even more, and breaks up around my chin and nose. I've tried everything—using less powder and a lighter hand, taking more time to buff it in, trying various primers, etc. It looks awful every time. The only good thing is that my face didn't feel like an oil slick. I don't think I'll even bother with trying the original version. I'm disappointed, because I told the ulta associate that I want a foundation that's not cakey and blends well. This is not it.
maybe if I try different

my skin is very oily, I do clean and apply primer for my face first, but is working a little bit, because it dissappear and it does transfer, I'm going to give another chance and let's see if I keep it or not.
Bad for dry skin
Lala from Florida
Bought this for my sensitive and acne prone skin. It didn't irritate my skin or cause any breakouts. It covers redness and breakouts really well but if you have dry skin don't buy this. If you have dry skin this will look horrible on you.
Been Using For Years - LOVE

I went through a period where I tried liquid foundations but they just can't beat the natural look of this powder. Excellent coverage and I don't feel like I'm wearing much at all on my skin. Im very oily and my friend who also has oily skin asked me the other day how I keep my makeup matte even towards the end of the day. I also use Urban Decay's de-slick setting spray to set this in - although I haven't used a variety of other setting sprays to know whether this would work well with them.

Foundation that feels like I'm not wearing anything at all. Doesn't break me out or otherwise irritate my face.

Great foundation that doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything at all.
So much hype
Mimi from MI
Coloration, feel and application were great but I felt it brought out all the fine lines I did not know I had.
Minz the knowledgble from Los Angeles
I use it every day instead of a liquid foundation, except on a special occasion. It gives a great finish and I don't need SPF if I am out longer than 10-15 minutes.
Only wish it was a bit less expensive.
I have purchased this product for many years

I had bought this along with their liquid pro. The Ulta rep had told me that It was used more as like a setting powder. It does work like that but it can be a bit orangey when you use this … HOWEVER I use this buy it self with just their primer and a moisturizer and it's the best thing ever! Does not make you look cakey. It gives you a natural look and when it's hot you don't feel your face dripping of sweat. Glad I got this 🥰
Perfect matte foundation powder
Jen from Manchester,gA
This is a perfect coverage for those who don't like too much foundation or liquid. I use this in the summer but liquid in the winter when my face tends to be drier. It is the perfect daily coverage for summer!!! A little bronzer with this and you are set
I would purchase this product again.

I have used Bare Minerals for some years now. My only complaint is that the foundation is a little redder than before.
My favorite foundation!
