Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Pretty good
This foundation looks pretty good for about 5 hours, then I start getting pretty oily. Which is weird, because with the original I stayed matte longer... The finish is great. Covers redness well. Does an ok job at covering acne, but it doesn't make it disappear. Overall, it's not too bad. I like it cause it doesn't break me out or look streaky like most liquid foundations.

I've had acne for as long as I can remember. After a breakdown in college I decided to spend the extra money for the sake of my face, and it was the best decision I made! Yes, it's expensive, but it's worth saving the tears over breakouts. I use all powder products and love the way my face feels at the end of the day instead of feeling like it's melting off by lunch. I've seen significant improvements in my skin and I don't think I will ever trust anything else on my face. Bare minerals claims it is so natural you can sleep with it on, and although I will wear this all day every day, if your acne issues are as bad as mine I still don't recommend that.

Perfect for hot muggy summers. My face didn't get shiny like it does with liquid foundation. Gives medium coverage. It will be the foundation I use during the summer for my oily skin. Winter, I don't think I'd use as powders seem to stick to my dry patches. I do like it and will repurchase it, for sure!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great coverage
I had only ever used liquid foundation before and I found they emphasised dry patches and did not last well. However, this foundation is fantastic. It doesn't irritate my skin which is quite sensitive and doesn't emphasise dry patches at all so I can wear it whatever mood my skin is in.
It also doesn't clog my skin so I don't end up with spots on the day after using it, which has been a problem with previous foundations.
I like that you can build up the coverage if you want to have lighter coverage during the day and heavier for the evening.
You have to be careful with it over enlarged pores but the very helpful Bare Minerals sales person showed me how to apply it to make these less obvious.
I'm really impressed with this foundation, which is the first product I've bought from a Bare Minerals. I'll definitely be a repeat customer and will try more products!

I've been using this foundation for years and I won't switch brands. In a hot and humid climate, it holds up all day and gives me the coverage and finish I want.

Reasons- any skin type can wear it- it does not emphasize pores or wrinkles. Its not sparkley. You can control the coverage. Its buildable, portable and blendable. It can also be used by both men and women. I am a middle aged man with darker skin and some uneven pigmentation and always a bit shiny. I also need to wear a mineral sunscreen like titanium and zinc- but they leave a blue pink cast on my skin. Bare Minerals Matte doesn't look unnatural at all and has sunscreen, I never break out. Its great for travel and discrete. If you are in situations where you need to look refreshed, refined, natural and younger looking, this is the product to go to. You may want to have several shades so you can colour adjust for the seasons.

I always had trouble finding the right foundation. Either is made me break out or I looked like i was wearing makeup. My friend told me about bare minerals and I just had to try it. Ive tried other mineral foundation before but i also looked cakey and chalky. I started out using the original foundation and liked it but i found it made me too shiny. So i decided to try the matte foundation and i fell in love! it was perfect for my type of skin. I have acne prone skin that is very sensitive. During the summer my face would get really oily but with the matte foundation it would stay on my face and soak up a lot of the oil. Makeup that would really last me throughout the whole day. With this makeup it just looks better as time goes on because it seems to really set into my skin. Ive been using complexion rescue underneath or to just quickly put on which i love. This makeup changed my life. NO other makeup compares.

Best foundation I have found so far really helps my oily ness on my face and great coverage can build to how much you want I got this shade in fair as really pale skin with red tones covers my redness and makes an even coverage doesn't look cakey sets perfectly easy applying doesn't feel rough on your skin best with a primer if you have dry skin otherwise great defiantly recommend for oily/breakout skin
