Revisited: Bare Minerals Matte Foundation in Medium Beige*

Bare Minerals Matte Foundation in Medium Beige

At the beginning of September, I wrote a post about my first impressions of  Bare Minerals Matte Foundation in Medium Beige as part of my alphabet blog challenge, giving my first impressions on this product.

In something I don't usually do, I am writing a 'revisited' post, so I can give you my thoughts after a few weeks of using the product regularly!

As I said in my first post, this product was sent to me by the lovely team at Chemist Direct who offer the Bare Minerals Matte Foundation in several shades for the great price of £21.66!

Another little recap - the Bare Minerals Matte Foundation is made up of crushed minerals and boasts that is created "perfect, long lasting matte coverage with a luminous look" and also contains SPF15.

I have been using the product daily for almost 2 months now and must say that I still have a good half a pot left, which is really impressive. Even at it's discounted rate of £21.66 (down from £24) from Chemist Direct, I don't think I would spend that amount on a day to day foundation for fear of it running out too soon. So for starters, I am impressed that it is lasting so well.

Again, as I said in my first post, I like the twist lid, meaning the powder doesn't escape (as long as you remember to twist it, as I have forgotten on several occasions!) however, I also said that I anticipated that it may be difficult to get the product out of the pot and this is something I have found on some occasions.

While I still have over half a pot left, this is not so much of an issue, but I do think that when it comes down to having less in the pot, that it may become a struggle, which could lead to some wastage and I hate that about a product container. I have tried to prize the lid off a couple of times, and I think it would come away eventually, meaning you could get to any leftovers, but with the pressure it would take, you might also end up with it all over yourself or your dressing table!

Onto the actual product. I do like to coverage it gives, it definitely give me a matte look, and is easy to apply in the mornings when I am getting ready for work. I would definitely recommend application with quite a large brush, this just helps it distribute more evenly and lightly so you can build it up. rather than finding it concentrated in certain areas giving a patchy look.

I definitely didn't need a large amount of the powder to give lovely coverage and create an even, matte finish, which was great.

I did find that by lunch time, I needed a little top up in some areas of my face, but only a very small amount of product. If I didn't top up during the day, then I would definitely need to reapply a full face for the evening.

One recommendation from me would be to be careful when using liquid concealers with the powder. I usually apply concealer underneath a powder foundation. I found if I didn't blend the concealer and allow to dry and soak in a little before applying, then the  product would tend to stick to these areas, which would actually highlight any blemishes, rather than cover them.

Overall, I do really like the Bare Minerals Foundation. I think next time, I would perhaps go for a lighter shade, so I can use more of the product as this may help it last a little longer, but I think I can deal with touching up at lunch time, and before going out in the evening considering the nice matte look it gives.

Make sure you head over to Chemist Direct to get the Bare Minerals Matte Foundation for just £21.66 [reduced from £24].

  3. I own this foundation and I really like it. I don't seem to have any trouble with getting the powder out though. It's definitely on the pricey side but I always get mine from either the bareMinerals website or feelunique.co.uk as I trust those the most.
