Not enough product for the money.
I like the product and I like the locking feature, BUT I was surprised at how LITTLE product I actually received inside the container. WHERE’S THE BEEF, or should I say POWDER?! I feel a little ripped off and will definitely NOT purchase this product again, (unless I get MORE of what I thought I was getting).
Great coverage at first but does not last
I really, really wanted to like this – I used to use the normal bare minerals but the mica made me break out so I decided to try the Matte. It looks really good when I first put it on, but it does not last more than 2 hours. I even tried using the bare minerals primer first, but this stuff just melts away and a few hours in, you can see all the imperfections in my skin. I won’t be buying it again.
Good Coverage for the Working Woman
I have a high-stress job with little time for primping. This makeup goes on, doesn’t get blotchy during my work day, and stays on for hours.
Best foundation for oily skin
I’ve used this product for years, and have tried others during that time and always come back to my Bare Minerals matte foundation. I tried the original foundation at first and it was too shimmery for my skin. My skin is very oily and I did not want any extra shine. The matte foundation is perfect for me, and I can wear the medium beige color all year round. It applies easily with a foundation brush, looks very natural, and stays on all day, even with no primer. Because my skin is so oily, I don’t wear primer to avoid any extra pore blockage. Some very hot and humid days I need a foundation refresher by the end of the day, but that would happen with any foundation. I use this foundation with the BareMinerals concealer and Mineral Veil. This makeup is a great price and beats the quality of most more expensive brands. I wear it daily and a container typically lasts me between 2 and 3 months.
I stopped buying Bare Escentuals and tried the other brands of mineral make up. Never again, this is the best, now I remember why I loved it before. The shades are perfect and it feels so nice on my skin. I really do not worry if I wear to sleep accidently, though that is rare. My skin stays soft and clear.
Matte is better than the original
I have been using the original BE medium beige for many years…I figured I would give the MATTE version a try…I am NOT disappointed. Good stuff!!
