I actually love this foundation. Or, to be more exact – I WOULD love it if I could find a shade that matched. This foundation is great in so many ways. The finish is beautiful, the lasting power is...

It is hit or miss for me with mineral make up. I decided to give this a whirl again since I'm older and my skin is changing. Plus, I like to have something fast to apply on days that I don't have...

I’ve been wearing the original foundation for ten years. My shade is Fair 01. I absolutely love the buildable coverage and the glow it gives your skin throughout the day. I always get complimented...

I’ve used this in the original formula for years. I took a break from it in 2008 when everyday minerals first became popular and was cheaper. Then went back to bare minerals after I ran out of that...

I was genuinely excited to try out a mineral foundation and got my hands on 'Golden Nude' and 'Tan Nude' which seemed the nearest color matches. I tried them on an evening - one on the left side of...
