Meet Matte: Bare Minerals Matte Foundation

I did a review of Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Matte foundation not long ago. Recently, I came across this video that Bare Escentuals must have created when they first introduced their matte foundation. It’s so funny that I had to share it with everyone. I didn’t know they had such a sense of humor. It looks like a fun place to work. Take a look if you need a laugh.

You can read my Bare Minerals Matte Foundation review if you want to learn more about this product. It’s great as makeup for oily, sensitive skin with acne.

P.S. This foundation has no bismuth oxychloride, in case that is an issue for those of you with very sensitive skin.

Review:

I have tried different brands of mineral makeup, including drugstore brands and those available only online.  There is one brand that stood head and shoulders above the others – Bare Escentuals bareMinerals (often misspelled as bare mineral makeup or bare essentials makeup).  Their price was an excellent value compared to others, especially for those starting out for whom the bareMinerals Get Started Kit is ideal.

Review of bareMinerals Matte Foundation

bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation Fair

Description:

This is Bare Escentuals’ new matte formula of its original bareMinerals foundation. It is supposed to absorb excess oil without drying the skin. It is almost meant to improve the appearance of the skin, minimizing pores and promoting cell turnover with their Rare Minerals Active Soil Complex. The container has been redesigned with a ‘click, lock, go’ cap so that there are no spills. This powder foundation also has an SPF 15 with no chemicals or preservatives. You can see a full list of ingredients on the product page, using the link provided below.
