Matte SPF 15 Foundation is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I have fairly oily skin and this definitely keeps my skin matte all day. As for the coverage, i find it to be light-medium coverage. It evens out my skin tone and reduces redness/blemishes a little but you can definitely still see pimples/blemishes through it. I think the best thing about it is it's a really natural finish, a friend of mine literally said "how does your skin look so good without any makeup on" when i was wearing this foundation, so I think i'll continue using this for a while :))

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for oily, sensitive skin I have really oily skin, and have gotten pimples from mattifying liquid foundations. I've just bought this recently with Bare Minerals' Blemish Remedy Prep Gel. I tried using it three different ways to see how mattifying it is. The first time - I put too much powder as I wanted a full coverage. But after a few hours, the oil on my face started to seep through my makeup, and the powder separated around my nose and chin. The second time - I only used just enough powder to get a light coverage. With a small amount, the powder held up pretty well. The third time - I used a BB cream, then used the powder over it to get a medium coverage. This was such a perfect combination as I was matte for a solid 4 hours, and had little oil seeping through at the end of the day. If you have oily skin like me, this product won't keep you matte all day, but good enough with less touch ups.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not repurchase I had high hopes due to reviews however after an hour of wear it beings to oxidise, sink into my pores and even completely separates disappearing off parts of my face making it patchy. Upon application it can cake especially on my forehead, It also does this regardless of the weather. I personally prefer the bare minerals blemish ready foundation over this so I guess it depends on your skin type. However I wouldn't purchase this product again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my oily skin! My skin has always been super oily and prone to breakouts. I was always a liquid foundation girl but I knew it was making my skin worse and would look terribly shiny within a few hours of application. I bought a bare minerals starter kit to try powder foundation out and it was great value. I used the original but within a few hours it would start going blotchy on my face and settle into fine lines. I switched over to the matte formula and haven't looked back! After getting used to the application process, this foundation has been my go-to! It takes about 5 minutes to really settle into my face and creates a flawless finish. The more you apply, the heavier the coverage. It doesn't cover up blemishes completely, but I spot treat with a bit of concealer and that does the trick. Also looks great in photos. This foundation keeps me matte for a good part of the day which is a miracle for me, and it doesn't oxidise. When I use it with the mineral veil it stays matte for even longer. This has also helped clear up my problem skin as I'm no longer layering on liquid foundation which was clogging my pores. Give bare minerals a try! Can't go wrong for the price and lasts a while!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So disappointed I had done quite a bit of research looking for a new foundation, as my combination skin recently became unusually oily. I am more of a liquid foundation girl, but was overwhelmed with the recommendation and reviews for this product. Every single thing i heard seemed to spout that it was like no other powder and improved the skins look by ten times. I also like a medium look over high coverage, so was glad this wasnt cakey. Well, it isn't cakey and doesnt clump like so many powders, it is like a soft velvet finish, but thats where the positives ended for me. Firstly, it takes forever to apply, as dabbing, tapping excess then thoroughly buffing into the skin is extremely time consuming. And it is very sheer coverage. It barely covers or evens my skin at all, to the point where my friends and colleagues have started questioning if there is a reason I have stopped wearing makeup. I suppose it could work well if you have very even toned skin naturally, but I expect majority of purchasers of this product are looking for coverage. I am hesitant to use bare minerals again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love this! I've been using this foundation for about a year now and it has to be one of my favourites! So quick and easy to use and lasts ages! I have noticed that if i have a bit too much near my smile lines it can crease a little bit, but otherwise i cant fault it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! I was using sheer cover before they stopped making it earlier this year/last year. I tried so many powder foundations to find one similar. This product is even better than sheer cover. I love the way this product feels on my skin in combination with the three colour primer. My skin actually feels better when I wear makeup to when I don't put any on. I will be buying this product again and again for a long time! Please don't stop making it or change it - its perfect.
