    The mineral matte is better..

    The original Bare minerals makeup would get too shiny on me after a while. I use the matte now, it's much better and covers imperfections much better than the original and comes in all shades, mix a tiny bit of the original with the matte to create a supple look. I tried the compact version as well, to me, it's more like a powder than a foundation and too dry, imo not my favorite version. The Bare minerals matte foundations is the best. — 3 years ago

    Great for setting

    I rarely use this by itself because I don't think you can wear powder as a foundation without constantly reapplying, but this makes great setting powder. It comes in bunches of colors, and the sunscreen is effective. — 3 years, 6 months ago

    I wanted to love it, but...

    I didn't notice any difference in my skin after applying this, it was still uneven and blotchy. So I applied more. Still nothing. So more. I just ended up looking uneven, blotchy, and like I had powder caked on my face, because, well I did. I ended up giving it to a friend who just loves it. Eh. — 4 years, 1 month ago

    Love, love

    I love this foundation! I have been using this for about 5 years now and I still love it. Before bare minerals I was constantly trying new foundations all the time trying to find one I liked and that would blend in with my pale skin tone. Too often my make up was too noticable because I could not get a pale enough shade that would blend well on my skin. This makeup solved that problem for good! I moreinitially did not buy the brush to go with this and found that was a big mistake. The Bare Escentuals brushes are worth the investment! They help pick up just the right amount and blend smoothly. — 4 years, 2 months ago
