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.

    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.

    Is this foundation a powder to cream? 

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Hi EmmaCarson676, Our Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is a loose powder foundation, not a powder to cream formula. Please note this foundation blends seamlessly into skin for a smooth appearance.

    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: Mtdowner
    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!
