I have used the bareMinerals matte loose powder foundation for YEARS and I have recently started to change my makeup routine a bit so that I look a little bit more "finished" and put together. This powder is the bees nees for that. I do sometimes use liquid foundations for FULL coverage but I noticed that those really do a number on my skin afterwards - I kind of have to let my skin recover from that thick stuff for a few days. But this bareMinerals barePRO foundation is PERFECT. It provides the coverage that I want, which is also buildable, feels soft and dry (not tacky) on my skin, and my skin has absolutely no issues with it on, even if I layer it for full full coverage. The color match is perfect for my skin (there are a lot of choices!) and I use it with the bareMinerals brush with the little core inside. I love that with this foundation, my other face makeup applies so much more evenly (contouring products, blush and bronzer). It stays all day, even if I am out in the hot Texas sun all day, and my face doesn't get oily like it does with other products. I love that I can also use this on my "light makeup" days and it still looks finished and provides a matte look on my skin. Can't say enough - LOVE this!
