bareMinerals Matte Fairly Light Powder Foundation

I’ve been wanting to try a bareMinerals powder foundation for so long, but I just hadn’t got round to buying one. Fortunately, I saw them on the Cohorted website at the reduced price of £16.50. I knew that was a bargain price so quickly snapped up one in fairly light. I think they usually retail for around £25. I was quite unsure of the colour I would need as I am so pale but thankfully this one was the perfect match!

I’ve never tried anything from bareMinerals but out of everything, their powder foundation has been top of my list. There are so many different shades to choose from, that will suit every skin tone. In the end, I went with Fairly Light and it was the perfect match for my pale skin. I don’t have as oily skin as I once did, but I thought I would go for the matte one as it has no shimmer.

The texture of the powder is very fine and applies really well. I use a really big powder brush to apply it and blend it over my face. The powder literally sticks to your skin and will not budge once it is on. The coverage is quite light but I found that it evened out my skin tone really well. Sometimes I get small dry patches on my skin, which liquid foundation sticks to and highlights. With this foundation, even though it was matte, it didn’t bring out any of those blemishes. It just gives a really light, natural finish. Obviously, when my skin has broken out I definitely prefer a heavy coverage, but this foundation is perfect for everyday use. You can still use concealer underneath, which will help with any problem areas.

I would say that the coverage lasts for quite a few hours, which is what I expected. It definitely worked at keeping my skin matte throughout the day. Overall, I am definitely glad I finally invested in this foundation. I am going to be wearing this throughout the summer- especially as it has SPF. I hate wearing foundation in the summer but always look to cover my skin up with something. So this will be the perfect light coverage I have been looking for.
