Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 256 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Foundation!! I have been using this foundation for about 4 to 5 years now and I cannot express how much I love it!! I Love how this foundation is so easy to use and I find it is good for all ages. I have tried so many different kinds of foundation but I always end up back with this Matte powder. I absolutely love how this foundation fills on your face, rather other products can make your face feel like the foundation is caked on. This foundation fills like you don't have anything on and makes your skin feel and look great!!! I have would definitely recommend this to a friend and will be most definitely be repurchasing this product every time I run out! 06/01/2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I love this foundation. It looks natural and doesn't irritate my skin. 20/12/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Must-have This is my faithful standby. Terrific coverage with a light, natural look. Easy solution for my mild rosacea, at home or on the go. 15/12/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Very easy to apply and stays on for a long time. I love it. 12/12/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Good for my oily skin, medium coverage and also convenient in bag if I bring it to-go. Love! 11/12/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great foundation I used this foundation a couple years ago because I felt I had oily skin. I got compliments on my skin/makeup when I wore this. I used the BareSkin for a bit by itself and am now layering the two. Even together my face is not caked on or unnatural-looking. 10/12/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I will use no other foundation. I've worn a lot of makeup in my time but NOTHING feels as great as Bare Minerals! No clogged pores feeling or paint appearance and equally important, no smell. 28/11/2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Totally Unexpected I am in LOVE with the Original SPF 15 Powder Foundation and swear by Bare Minerals products. I thought I would try the Matte Powder in the same shade and I was so disappointed. It made my skin look orange, the powder felt incredibly heavy and gave a "cakey" effect and it made my skin break out. I was so surprised because the Original is my favourite foundation and feels nice and light on my skin but the Matte was so different. I shall definitely stick to the Original and not be purchasing Matte again! 14/11/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Love this product, perfect shade , hardly can feel it on my skin but always looks wonderful, very light weight. 10/11/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features Great coverage and light weight. The rite shade works wonders 05/11/2016

Hey Jasleen. This foundation is perfect for almost every skin time. I've dry/comb and my skin is perfection, offers amazing coverage. I also have very acne prone, oily skin at times as this is always the perfect defence.

Answer: 
I tend to have quite oily skin as well, however I use the original SPF foundation! I still need to blot/ touch up 1-2 times per day however so I suggest that you go into a bare minerals store and speak with the make up artist, they will help you find the foundation/ coverage that will be most beneficial to your skin type. I also suggest the prime time oil control to help absorb any oils in your skin.

(Bare minerals don't do sample foundations however they do sample prime time)

I went to a store to have a BM makeover yesterday and told the lady that my main concern was hiding my large pores and controlling the shine I get on my nose and chin ( I have to power ever hour or so during the day I told her ) she recommended the original foundation which I bought in the starter kit, but since coming on here I think the matte foundation would have been ideal for me and I'm surprised she didn't recommend this.

Answer: 
It may be the powder/make up you were using before that was causing your skin to become oily. I had a foundation that made my skin extremely oily during the day causing me to blot as often as I could! I found that my skin wasn't very oily at all when I had no product on my face. I told this to the make up artist at bare minerals and they also recommended the original SPF foundation. Unlike some of the other bare minerals foundations, the original SPF and original SPF matte foundation are both oil free, which will help your skin if it is oily.

I am in love with my original SPF foundation, I love the coverage, I barely have to blot or touch up during the day and I feel it gives a nice glow to my complexion as opposed to the matte foundation.

Answer: 
I have large pores and an oily t zone and I have the matte and the original foundation and actually I prefer the original in pretty much every way. The matte I find cakey whereas the original, on top of Prime Time primer, looks natural. It does tend to settle into pores on my nose after a few hours but I just blot with a tissue and buff in mineral veil and this does the trick.

Answer: 
I think it's just finding what is best suited for you - I have combination skin which has very dry patches and yet Matte works best for me. You've already bought it so see how it works for you, and if you think results could be better then try something else (I would not recommend the Ready Foundation as this I find enlarges pores).

Not really advice on the foundation but more your other skin issues, I would definitely look into the BM primers as I find they help control my oiliness slightly whilst also reducing the appearance of my pores. Just something to think about!

Answer: 
We would definitely recommend trying out our Matte Foundation. It works wonder on more oily skin and will give a really Matte finish. Regarding you large pore concerns you may want to try out our Pure Transformation Night Treatment which is great for reducing pore size in a matter of weeks.

Answer: 
No one can answer this but you! Personally I would keep your foundation and buy a bronzer as well - this way you can build up the tan easily on your skin and make sure it's right for you. Remember: it's far easier to make your skin look darker than it is to make it look paler!

Answer: 
I would advise you to go two shades darker, or when your tanned go to your local BM counter and get colour tested.

Answer: 
If you usually wear Fairly Light, then we would advise that Tan may be too dark for you. The best thing to do would be to pop into your local bareMinerals counter for a shade match while you have your tan. If you are unable to do that then, perhaps try Medium Beige if you have quite a deep tan as this is a couple of shades deeper but with the same neutral undertones.

Answer: 
Hi Pat. Not to worry, we haven’t discontinued our MATTE SPF 15 Foundation, and there are certainly no plans to do so. The reason it might be saying this in your Wish List is because we’ve had some product code updates, and you may have added a code that is old and has now been updated. Try removing this item, and re-adding with the current shades online and this should sort it out.
