I have Golden Fair in this formula. It's a little too yellow for my neutral skin, but Fair is too pink and Fairly Light is Actually Dark.For reference, I have normal-oily skin, and I don't wear foundation primer.While the BareMinerals Original Foundation boasts 30 shades, that is where the positive qualities end. At least, for me.I know what you're going to say: Wear primer! Try the matte formula! No thanks, and I already have.Honestly, I think the mineral makeup trend is *almost* dead for now.Pros:- A wide range of shades.- SPF 15- Not obscenely expensive.Cons:- Will turn into a cakey puddle within three hours of wear. (At least, if you have oily skin.)- There are plenty of other mineral foundations with better ingredients. Count me impressed when they reformulate without bismuth oxychloride. - Although it isn't expensive, it's still not worth the price ($28.50 as of 2017.)

I wear bare minerals matte powder in Light for most of the autumn/winter months. It's a staple long wearing, comfortable foundation which soaks up excess oil in my skin without clogging. I really trust this foundation to give me good, buildable coverage without causing breakouts. Phew! I wear this as a makeup base in most of my videos- I am NOT adventurous with foundation and base makeup as I have to be really careful. Search Ayish Zone on YouTube x

I really love the twist seal packaging! the price is a little pricey so I'll definitely be looking for dupes. my color is in medium beige and it is a perfect match for olive skin. I love the way it makes my skin look and it covers redness very well but I still need a good cream under eye concealer for my dark circles . I've been using this product for about 3 years and it makes my skin itch a little, It's bearable but annoying so I find if I put the mineral veil on first and then the foundation on top that it helps with the itch. doesn't break me out , I will be repurchasing until I found a cheaper alternative that works just as good

I have been using BM EVERYTHING for over 15 years. I have never experienced a breakout or any kind of skin irritation from it EVER. I see a lot of negative reviews about it having bad ingredients but I think that is relative. Not all people are going to react the same to every product. I will say this. Give this foundation a good chance before you write it off. The first couple of times I used it, I simply used too much and it was horrendous. As I lightened up my application, I saw what everybody was talking about. If you are oily, use the Mineral Veil. Minimize what you put on your face before application. Imagine it like this, you put all this product on your face then you put powder on it....it's going to soak it up and then your face will look oily. I use moisturizer. Period. No primer. No serums.This look is simple and glowy. There is a reason it keeps winning awards. It's wonderful especially for aging skin. I've worn it since my late 20's, my mother wears it and she's 65 and I am about to get my daughter set up with a starter kit. If you have "problem" skin, give it a chance. It can actually help your skin.

This is a not so natural mineral powder foundation. Filled with skin-irritating content making acne-prone skin to break out. It looks either dry or shiny on my skin. Reading the extensive contents list this is no suprise- the contents of a mineral powder shall be kept to a minimum. I use and recommend Pür Minerals makeup. This is safe to use even after professional skin treatments including DermaPen.

I like this a lot. I got matched with medium beige at Bare Escentuals. I have dry skin so I bought in original formula. If you have dry skin prep your skin very well and prime first than used the mineral powder and I also used mineral vail in press to set this. This last on me all day. I don't have allergy rash from this like liquid foundations does.

This product felt as though it was burning and irritating my skin from the moment I put it on. Supposedly mineral make up is a better choice for those with sensitive skin, but this did absolutely the contrary. I literally couldn't wait to go home from work and wash it off. It felt cakey and heavy. In the bin it goes.

Amazing. Build-able coverage and gives a beautiful glow, Can wear by itself or on top of liquid for extra coverage. Also, brilliant for your skin.

I use this over a liqud foundation when I need makeup to sit better. If you buy it a lighter shade you got a baking powder as well! It might dry oit your skin after some months so use a good primer!
