bareMinerals Original foundation:
Magazines and millions of women agree: your skin will love you for this. Our Original SPF 15 Foundation gives you an incredibly flawless, even application and picture-perfect skin. Its silky, soft texture looks like a powder, but it feels like a cream and buffs on beautifully without settling into fine lines or drying out the skin. Made with only the purest, highest quality ingredients — and none of the chemicals and preservatives that can irritate skin. It's makeup so pure you can sleep in it.®
bareMinerals Matte foundation:
The bareMinerals revolution continues with our latest breakthrough: Matte SPF 15 Foundation. This groundbreaking formula offers shine-free coverage and extraordinary skin-renewing properties for a flawless, natural matte finish all day long. Fall in love all over again with an active mineral foundation that minimizes pores and smoothes skin to let the most beautiful you shine through — all in a no-spill, no-mess package.
