Additional Information

What it is:

7 CLEAN INGREDIENTS Made with oily skin types in mind, this vegan matte loose powder foundation starts with the same skin-improving minerals found in our iconic ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 15. Formulated with just 7 clean mineral ingredients — and without any unnecessary additives, binders, fillers or talc — it's MAKEUP SO PURE AND CLEAN YOU CAN SLEEP IN IT. GOOD FOR SKIN COVERAGE MATTE Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 15 promotes clearer, healthier-looking skin over time and is clinically shown to reduce shine and absorb excess oil. Customize your coverage from sheer to full with this effortlessly buildable formula that wears all day without clogging pores, causing break outs or settling into fine lines. This skin-improving mineral makeup is available in 30 shades that flatter every skin type and tone, visibly perfecting skin with a no-makeup look and feel. MINERAL-BASED SUN PROTECTION With mineral-based, non-chemical Broad Spectrum SPF 15, MATTE Foundation also protects from damaging UVA/UVB rays. Unlike chemical sunscreens that absorb UV rays, mineral-based sunscreens work to immediately block UV rays from absorbing into the skin. Containing the active minerals Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, mineral-based sunscreens provide physical protection from the sun. EFFORTLESS APPLICATION When you use our signature SWIRL, TAP, BUFF application method, the mineral pigments warm up and blend seamlessly onto your skin. Easy to use, this weightless mineral foundation never looks cakey, whether you’ve got a naturally oily complexion or just prefer a matte finish. Our online Foundation Shade Finder makes it easy to choose your shade. You can also stop by a bareMinerals boutique for a free Shade Matching consultation.

    It seems that the original foundation in medium tan 18 is lighter than the matte in this shade. The matte looks so much darker. Is this true?

    The page says this product has 7 ingredients but the ingredients only add up to 7 if we include the "may contain" ones. So, in honesty, perhaps the formula has a very tiny amount of mica that can technically be written of as "may contain"?

    Asked by: yase
    Hi yase, Great question. We list this foundation as having 7 clean ingredients because it may contain some of those ingredients listed.

    I inquired about a shade a few weeks ago. The answer I got was to go with the Original Foundation in Warm Natural 12. Warm Natural is only available in the pressed. Is Warm Natural 12 for the loose the same as the Medium Beige 12?

    Asked by: mmiissyy
    Hi Mtdowner, We apologize for any misunderstanding. Medium Beige 12 in our Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and Warm Natural 12 in our barePRO Performance Wear Pressed Powder Foundation are both ideal for light to medium skin with neutral undertones. We think you could wear either or both based on your preference!

    On the pictures of the models, it looks like 01fair suits me best (since I have a light and uneven skin), but when I see the pictures of the powder it looks like 01 is more 'orange' than 05fairly medium (more 'pink'). What is the difference between them?

    Asked by: emma01
    Hi emma01, Our Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Fair 01 is best for fairest porcelain skin with cool undertones and Fairly Medium 05 is best for fair to light skin with cool undertones.

    I am trying to avoid mica in my makeup because of the recent humanitarian crisis in mining mica in Madagascar. I saw the ingredient list and it say "may contain" mica. Can you please elaborate whether this does or does not contain mica. 

    Asked by: Louda313
    Hi Louda313, Thank you for your question! Even though mica is not an ingredient in the formula for the Matte Foundation, that product is created in an environment where mica is handled, and therefore we cannot make the claim that it is 100% free of Mica. bareMinerals does not support the use of child labor in the mining of mica or any ingredient used in the sourcing manufacturing of cosmetics and personal care products. As part of our quality control, we only use raw materials from reputable and socially accountable suppliers who share our views on quality and fair labor practices. bareMinerals Code of Conduct promotes and expects lawful, ethical and honest behavior by our suppliers around the world. We encourage their compliance with all labor, health and safety requirements.
