WOW !...Love i...I was not a fan of the mineral make up idea until my step daughter took me in for a makeover - I've been using Bare Mineral for almost a year now - that annoying adult pimple has not show it's ugly face for over 8 months and this foundation does NOT clog you pores - easy to apply - great coverage - you are missing out if you don't try it!...Recently I purchased the bare Minerals Matte foundation and would rate it okay - it is perfect for those of you that don't have a lot to cover up but for those of us that want to cover up freckles or some other things such as freckles older cousin age spot then you really need to bypass the BareMenerals Matte foundation and get the regular foundatioin plus with the added sun screen you don't have to welcome freckles older cousin over for dinner.
