This goes on so smooth and feels like I'm not wearing anything. It makes my skin look flawless but still very natural, no overly madeup. I really like the matte finish too.

I have pitted skin from acne, and after I turned 50, liquid foundations weren't working for me due to settling into the imperfections in my skin. A friend suggested I try this foundation, so I went into the store to find out what color(s) were a match for me. I started with the original foundation, and now use the matte because I have oily skin, and have found no other foundation that looks and feels as natural as this one does. I use a the Fairly Light as a base with the Medium Beige over it. I also use the Warmth as my blush as it's the perfect color for me.
To get the last bit of powder out of the container, pry off the bottom with a butter knife and you can then marry it into your new container. Make sure you snap it back on all the way around so it doesn't come loose. I haven't looked for another brand of make-up now in over 8 years.

I have been using Bare Minerals powder foundation for several years and will never go back to liquid. However, this last product I purchased the bottom fell off the container. Needless to say this makeup isn't the cheapest and part of my purchase was wasted down the drain :( I'm not sure if it is a design flaw or if I just got a bad container.

The Matte foundation provides great coverage without feeling like you're wearing a mask. Love this product.

My friend introduced me to this foundation about 6 years ago. I had never worn any make up prior to this. Now I cannot live without it! I have combination skin. Its dry near my chin and very oily in my T-zone. I have enlarged pores on my cheeks and acne scars. I have experimented with the original foundation and it did not work as well as the matte for my skin. The powder keeps my skin from being shiny during the day and it looks almost flawless. Its also not heavy- I often feel I am not wearing makeup. I have tried other products and I keep finding myself coming back to this foundation- its worth the money. I work as a RN and its a make up I can wear to work without looking so made up.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ALuongo The Best Thing I Ever Did Was Start Wearing This
Ever since I was a teenager, I struggled with combination skin. Sometimes my face was really dry and others it was super oily. I would have weeks with no breakouts and then weeks will a ton. My mom first introduced me to Bare Minerals when she bought me the starter kit. Once I started wearing it and stopped with the other cakey foundations, I could see the change in my skin. Bare Minerals hides what I want it to hide but still keep the look of my own skin. I stopped putting chemicals on my face and the natural minerals have really helped me keep my skin clear and healthy. I wear Bare Minerals every day and nothing else!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nanc NOT FOR ME
I feel, and others communicated to me that the foundation looked harsh, unnatural, and took away from me instead of enhancing me; I have good skin, so really don't need a foundation, but like to wear something to have that polished look; I selected the shade with a store associate, seemed to be the right color, but when I put it on, to me, it seemed too dark and too yellow for me; I am light with a neutral skin tone; so I gave it to my mother to try, and see if it would be of benefit to her, and her friends told her to take it off, said she looked older, told her she looked made up. So, I feel it was a waste of about $30.00, product wasn't what I thought it would be. I bought a tinted moisturizer from another line at a department store, and it compliments me beautifully. In summary, I feel this product was not for me, and thank you for the email asking me to share my thoughts. What I do wish is that you would bring back the high shine eyeshadows, loved them, miss them, would wear the purple and the white, were such beautiful products, in a few seconds would bring out my eyes, was one of my favorite products out of anything I ever used. The price was affordable too. I hope you can bring those products back. I do wear the mineral veil as a finishing touch to set the tinted moisturizer, sometimes just wear that and not the tinted moisturizer; I like the mineral veil to take away any shine from my layered mositurizers, as I have dry, sensitive skin, always did, am 45 years old, but am told I look about 27. I take care of my skin by using good products and avoiding overexposure in the sun. That's why I had come to Bare Minerals because I researched how the products are good for your skin, and so I selected the mineral veil. I am all set with what I use for makeup, but again, wish the high shine eyeshadows would come back because I'd love to have the purple and the white on my make up table.

even after intense workouts at gym - where all your body sweats and you drench all your clothes and your hair drips - bare minerals makeup remains intact! i was most astonished!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love it
I was convinced to buy this product by all the positive reviews, and I Love It. My skin already looks much better, foundation is easy to apply and stays on forever. Straight away I went back to the shop and purchased few more products, as I decided to treat my skin with what is best. I am going to use BM products from now on, as I am hoping to look fresh, flawless and glowing on my wedding day which is in few months, and I am already loving the results! Thank you BM

Discovered Bare minerals a few years ago and their Matte version is the best foundation I have ever used. I have oily skin and all liquid foundations would slide off within the hour. This lasts all day and looks so natural, doesn't cake like others with the great benefit of a SPF.
