Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 225 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Foundation 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. 27/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! 17/04/2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. 12/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by for Gym! 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! 22/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 21/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favourite foundation 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. 19/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Foundation I have only recently over the last year been using Bare Minerals makeup, I previously thought it was a little pricey but since I decided to give it a go, I would never go back! The little extra cost makes up for the brilliance of the product, it is so worth every penny! My skin looks great all day and it is so quick and easy to apply, no skill needed to have flawless skin! 18/02/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best foundation I have found This foundation has worked wonders for my skin. I used to use a BB cream previously as I found foundation too heavy for my skin (and would often break out!), however this foundation is light and natural. It doesn't feel like you are wearing foundation as it is so light, however evens out complexion and looks incredibly natural. This combined with the Veil works great! The only down side is the last little bit is difficult to get out of the container but apart from that the foundation is great! 18/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Turned me into a loyal customer I don't usually follow a brand and I am continually changing products to see how good they are, what feels better and more natural on my skin, etc... Until I found bareMineral's Matte SPF 15 foundation. I haven't dared to try anything else since! It is lightweight, good for all types of skin, even my own that usually changes throughout the year. I have even stopped using concealer, I don't need it anymore! It's been truly a revelation. Would definitely recommend to everyone that struggles finding the right product. 17/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for combination skin I am 42, with combination skin and this is the best foundation I've found. It goes on easily, I can blend it and it keeps my T-zone matte and oil free. Very happy. 17/02/2016

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)

Details: 
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.
