bareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Golden Medium

How many of you use mineral powder foundations? I’m just started to get into them. I chose this one the last time I was at Sephora.

It’s a warm-toned, finely milled powder foundation.


The packaging doesn’t carry any major issues for me. I tap off the excess back into the container if my brush picks up too much.


It looks a little pale at first, but it blends out well.


Voila! See?


I’m still in the testing stages with this, but so far it seems like a nice foundation. It sweeps on nicely and gives me a smooth, even finish. The color is very good for winter, but it still works for me during the summer as long as I am diligent in my sunblock use.

I like it so far. It’s good for sweaty, oily days when my skin can’t handle liquid foundations.

This costs $28.50.
