Q & A

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 239 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. 10/08/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Only product I trust! 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. 28/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Great coverage without feeling like I'm wearing a mask.. Absolutely love it!! 28/07/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Matte foundation 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! 25/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! 24/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome foundation 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. 18/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Foundation Ever 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. 04/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for oily skin Love this - helps to control my daughters acne prone shine! 01/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by confident 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. 30/06/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing 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 29/06/2016

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!

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.
