  • i think it depends on your skin type. I have big pores, combo dry/oily skin, freckles and right now i have two red blimishes. somedays i really like it, (i use the matte) and somedays I feel like it doesn't work worth crap. i know that doesnt help haaa. do you have an ulta or sephora? go to those stores or one like it and ask someone to put it on you (and explain how to use it properly) and then see if you like the coverage and if it stays on throughout the day. sephora has a great return policy so if you hate it you can return it!
    although somedays i feel like it doesn't cover well, i WOULD recommend it to someone.

  • yes ! I love it but I also like ulta brand mineral foundation and finishing powder... it's really good and a fraction of the cost. it's about 14.00 each

  • I have oily skin on my t zone. I LOVE it!! It blends in beautifully and is the only foundation I will use! I use 2 different colors and blend them to get my perfect match.

  • Love love love mine !!! My face is two tone so it covers the red areas great and looks natural, not caked on.. My only flaw with it is after a 12 hour shift my red is peaking through..

  • I'm not a user but I have tried it and I didn't care for it all. You have to try it for yourself to see how it goes.

  • In the past Sephora has had live demonstratiosn of the Bare Minerals foundation. If you have a store where you live, maybe you could get them to use it on you so you can see for yourself. I happen to love it and I have very oily skin.

  • I like it, but I don't find it has the kind of coverage (for imperfections) that the ads claim. I use the mat version too. I usually just use the warmth as a subtle blusher, and then cover with mineral veil. For going out, I add the foundation. I like that you get sunscreen protection without chemicals. I use a moisturizer with sunscreen, but in summer, you can't have too much protection. :-)
