I have a love hate relationship with bareMinerals. It's a really good product when you have the perfect shade. The trick is finding the perfect match. I wasn't aware, until recently, that the brand's foundation has two different blends: Original and Matte.
The Original formula has specks of sparkle. It's meant to create a "glow" or shine depending on how it shows on your skin. The Matte formula is just that. It's a little tough to see and they aren't the same exact colors but the swatch on the left is the Original and the one on the right is Matte.
Since switching to the Matte, bareMinerals and I are getting along better. Hope this helps those of you with finding your "just right" shade of bare Minerals.
