Our team suggests:

A MINERAL MAKEUP MUST-HAVE: THE BEAUTIFUL FINISH BRUSH To get the most out of the MATTE Foundation with SPF, pair it with the Beautiful Finish Brush to build your desired level of coverage. The luxuriously soft brush delivers fast, even, controlled coverage that can reduce application time, and its skirted silhouette was specially designed to fit perfectly into our mineral foundation lids to help capture (and contain) every mineral. FOR A FLAWLESS APPLICATION, USE THE SWIRL, TAP, BUFF METHOD 1. Swirl a small amount of MATTE Foundation SPF 15 into the lid with the Beautiful Finish Brush until the bareMinerals are tucked into the bristles. 2. Tap off excess-the loose powder foundation should not be visible on the outside of the brush. 3. Buff the mineral makeup onto the skin in a swirling, circular motion, starting on the outside of your face near your cheekbones. Then, buff around your face, working your way to the forehead, cheeks, and nose. Buff until you're satisfied with the coverage. Less is more when applying bareMinerals, and you can build it up from sheer to full coverage.

Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide 15% , Zinc Oxide 5 % Inactive Ingredients: lauroyl lysine, silica, calcium silicate.May contain: mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE I've bought this four times now because it's so good. It looks very natural on the skin, to the point where I've been asked if I'm even wearing makeup. I've been able to build it to a medium coverage on my dark circles and blemishes. I've also slept and sweat in this makeup and have had no breakouts from it. I do wish the lightest shade was a bit lighter, because in the winter when I'm paler it is a bit dark on me. I also am super crazy oily and it keeps the oil at bay for a while, but I do have another powder that keeps me matte for a little longer. However, this has been my favorite makeup product for years and I just keep going back to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Matte finish I have been using the Matte Bare Minerals foundation for ~ 15+ years or whenever they 1st released it. I started with Bare Minerals Original foundation for years, but once there was a Matte version. I never when back, because I hate the glitter & shine in the Original version. But lately, because of older skin, Winter, along with eczema flare up, dry spots on my face & all the advertisements, I thought I should look into something less drying. I didn’t care for the Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer, because it does not have enough coverage. I purchased the BarePro liquid foundation. Used it exactly 1 time. It was way too runny for me. It came gushing out with just 1 pump. Made my skin crawl because it reminded me of past liquid foundation. Did not care for the look on my forehead either. It gave it kind of a greasy oily affect. Looked sweaty before I even started my day. Felt itchy. Could not wait to remove it before the day was over. Looked way more sweaty than Matte Bare Minerals foundation by mid-day. It did not last the whole day. While it was better than any other liquid foundation, Lancome, Estee Lauder, or Clinique, that I had ever used in the past, because it started as a liquid that turned matte. I have been using foundation since I was 16. I just hate liquid foundation. Guess once you go power or mineral foundation, you never go back. Instead, I changed my skincare from Lancome Advance Genifique to Kora Organics Face Glow Oil & continued to use the Matte Bare Minerals. It looks great on most days, except when the eczema spots flares up badly. It covers it well, when it does anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pros/Cons and Pictures below ! The pros/cons My shade: Golden Dark W40 Skin Type: Oily with slight discoloration and acne problems. I have been using Bareminerals products for almost 10 years with no switch in between. Bareminerals saved my skin. My experience with other foundations have been great when it comes to how I look when I put it on, but at one point it further ruined my skin completely. This product is light, and can be used for full coverage. I recommend this foundation for the regular grocery store occasion all the way to a glamorous photo shoot occasion. Bareminerals has mastered the art of providing you with full coverage without the look of having tons of makeup packed on. I often get compliments on my skin because 98% of the time people don’t realize I even have makeup on . I constantly hear how awesome my skin is and how it glows. The best part is at night when the makeup comes off each day I use it my skin looks even better then the last day. I have used many of this brands products, and it’s very hard to find one I don’t like. I must also include I love that Bareminerals stands for diversity they listened when people complained about not having enough shade range, and currently it would be hard not to find the perfect fit with Bareminerals. This foundation will also last you what seems like forever. OOOKKKAAYYY ! My cons currently only consist of more samples not being available. I feel this brand doesn’t get the credit it deserves because most people don’t have insight on the benefits of their products. I am currently wanting to do a video review of the different looks that can be created with this brand, because it’s honestly the best kept secret. I know this is lengthy but I don’t feel people get enough of what this makeup can really do for your skin.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish this worked for me! Two years ago I switched from original to matte for summer. I mysteriously broke out with MANY small, superficial white heads on my face, neck, and chest. Dr's thought it was some kind of infection and prescribed me topical steroids and antibiotics... Those didn't work and I decided to stop using ANY products on my face and it slowly went away. Fast forward to now. I thought I'd switch to matte for summer... What do ya know, I have increasingly gotten those little white heads again. I decided to look at the ingredients list and found that there were a few different ingredients that could be the culprit (lauroyol lysine being the main suspect). I never leave negative reviews and simply plan on exchanging matte for the original but thought that others should know this just in case they experience something similar! It was so stressful and embarrassing to break out like that and I am hoping I have caught it in time to avoid another episode!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the coverage without heavy feel I have been using this mineral foundation for a few years now and love it! I have oily skin and hate to wear heavy foundation. This gives good coverage without a heavy caked on feel. I also love that it has SPF 15.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation for oily skin! I've been using this foundation since 2013 and I love it. It really seems to help keep my oily skin in check. In fact, I accidentally bought the original at the store and my skin was SO oily. I was thinking, what the heck?! Then I realized I hadn't bought the matte...bummer. I definitely won't make that mistake again! In comparison to the original, it does take a little more product to get full coverage if you need it. I just use the concealer on blemishes or areas of redness before putting on the foundation and it works for me! Cheers!

    Did the shades change? I used to be able to use the third lightest shade, and then that became too dark so I started using the lightest shade.  Now that shade is too dark, even when I have fake tan on.  So did the shades change?
