      This foundation got me into BE. Now I have well over 300 different BE products in my bathroom! For oily skin, this works wonders. It keeps the oil down. Those of us who have oily skin know that, no matter what you try, your skin will start to ooze oil at some point during the day. This foundation doesn't stop it - but it doesn't come off when your skin decides to wage an attack against your makeup. It also cuts down on how much oil my skin produces. I used to be able to touch my nose and have an actual residue on my finger from all the oil. Now, I don't get a residue, although there is oil - I just use the oil absorbing sheets, which also doesn't budge the makeup at all! The only slight downside is I've noticed a bit more break outs along my cheekbones. I've managed to correct this by using the prime time oil control, so it's not an issue anymore.

      I have been using BareMinerals for a long time and I love it, best makeup I have ever used. I was excited to try the new matte finish. I didn't really notice a big difference in the matte finish vs the original but the color was off. I have always used the fairly light shade but the fairly light matte finish was too dark/orange for my skin tone and I ended up throwing it away. My advise would be to make sure you try it in the store before you buy. Don't assume you need the same shade in the matte finish!

        I am 40 year old AA woman an this product helped with my skin. I notice a change in my skin the next day. I used every expensive foundation out there and this is by far the best. It does exactly what it says Help your skin.

        Comments about bareMinerals Matte SPF 15 Foundation:

        I have had such issues with my skin. I began wearing foundation, then breaking out, then drying out, then I needed SPF but not oiliness. I finally splurged on this product because I was sick of having skin I was self-conscious about. I love this line! Skin is definitely something that I feel is worth spending money and time on. I use the moisturizer, primer, foundation, and mineral veil. My skin is protected with SPF, the make up stays on, and it has such great coverage but feels so light and is so GOOD for your skin! I will never go back to store bought foundation, it ruined my skin! This is worth the money and will make you look great! Your skin will thank you and confidence is priceless!

        Spectacular

        By Lindsey

        from Fresno, CA

        Comments about bareMinerals Matte SPF 15 Foundation:

        This foundation is amazing. It covers very well and reduces shine. I have a pretty oily T-zone and with any of my old make-up, I would come home from school or work and feel like I needed to wash it off because it felt heavy and gross. This foundation doesn't feel that way. I can wear it all day and just get a little shiny. I have been using this for a little longer than a month and a half and it has reducd my pore size as well. It doesnt completely cover my pores when applied but I can live with that.

            Compared to the original fairly light the matte fairly light does not offer the same coverage or color as the original. Very disappointing! Will not buy again or recommend!

                I just started using BareMinerals about a month ago and I am in love. I have tried many other brands of foundation and powder foundation and ALL have either made my face itch or burn. I walked into the Bare Essentials store and had a makeover on the spot. I am in love. My face feels great! No burning or itching. This foundation looks wonderful, it does not cake up or get greasy looking in the heat. I am hooked and will never use anything else!

                    I've been using BE matte for about 5-6 years now and love the coverage - light, but it still covers well when used with Bisque concealer. My skin is mostly oily with drier patches on my cheeks - this foundation adjusts to that, doesn't highlight wrinkles or flakes.

                        The first time I used your products, primer, foundation, and veil, my friend said I looked great! She said it must be my hair style. Wow! she said. "You look so much younger!" Really nice to wear something that feels natural and keep people guessing. I am a true fan!

                            This color is perfect during the summer months. The SPF 15 really helps reduce the chance of my face getting sunburnt. The matte finish is spectacular, especially when it is humid and I'm being active outside.

                            I started using this product about two months ago. I had been using a different brand of makeup for about 20 years but I wasn't happy with it any more so I have been trying different types of foundation over the past year but couln't find any I liked. Then I tried this one and really liked it. I didn't tell my husband I had changed makeup at all and after I was using this for a couple weeks, my husband said 'Wow, you look about 10 years younger for some reason'! So that convinced me that this really is a great makeup. And I keep getting compliments on how my skin is looking better and younger lately and it's been feeling a lot softer too so I really like it!

                                Beware, this product is way more orange than the same color in the ORIGINAL foundation. i've been wearing Bare Escentuals Original foundation for years now. Love it. Thought I'd try out the matte version. Awful! It's not the same color. it goes on thick. It turned progressively more orange throughout the day in fact.
