  • I'm interested in trying your mineral foundation in TAN Semi-Matte, but there aren't any color selections available to choose from. In BareMinerals my winter shade is Tan and my summer shade is Warm Tan. I'd also like some assistance with selecting blushes that compliment my skin tone. I would love to try some samples, but there aren't any options for choosing.

    • Hi Angel! We are currently out of the tan semi-matte in the sample and full size. It should be back within the next couple of weeks. We do have the Tan in the Matte foundation in the Sample form if you want to order that in a free sample kit and see if the color matches until we get the other back in stock. :) Girl Friday is a great blush color for a Tan complexion if you want something that's a little more Plummy, All Smiles is a great option for coral. Primrose, our new blush, would be a good warm option for you as well.

    I used to get the Medium Olive Semi Matte, and you know longer make that have that anymore, what color would you recommend? I have to be real careful some coliors give my face a gray color, as I have freckles!

    • Hi Debra,

      Our colorist recommended the Golden Beige and Golden Tan together with a hint of Mint Color Corrector added would be the closest match to Olive Medium. Mineral makeup is ideal for mixing colors, thus creating custom colors, we even sell an empty mixing jar for this popular purpose. We also offer the 7 Piece Sample Kit so that you can try out a variety of Base shades as well.

      Olive shades need green added, so we would recommend that you add the Mint Color Corrector to your base shade that matches closest to your complexion.

      Thank You!

  • Why do you guys change the names on some of the colours (i.e.. "formerly tan")? This is confusing and frustrating as a customer. When you build customer loyalty because of a product it's hard for your customers to stay loyal if the product is constantly changing. It seems as though every time I find a shade of something that I like, the next time I need to refill it it no longer exists.

    • Hi Anita,

      Nearly three years ago we updated our Base naming system. It was rather fun putting it all together. A Team of women traveled around to different retailer stores that carry our products and we asked the women who wear our products - what they thought of our base names. Many thought it was confusing, so we put together several new name options and the women chose our current naming system. The assigned numbers and letters in the base name such that 0 would represent the lightest shade and 7 is the darkest shade. Letters C, N and W represents the undertones, C for Cool, N for Neutral and W for Warm. Thank You!

  • Further to my previous comment, I'm looking for semi-matte light tan and it not longer exists on the website. Your recommendation above for golden complexions, Girl Friday Cheek Color also does not exist. Do you have any suggestions for alternatives?

    • Hi Anita,

      The Girl Friday Blush is available at Whole Foods Market in the So Splendid Kit. We will be offering that single shade here for the upcoming Holidays. Our newsletter will have more details when it does become available. Currently, we also offer the 7pc. sample kit, so you can try out our other blush shades as well. Thank You!

  • Sandy medium is my color. What is the new name for my color?

    • Hi Anna,

      We no longer carry the Sandy Medium base. We have a completely new Matte and Semi-Matte line with a unique and easy name system. You can learn more about it on our Blog. Here's the link to it:

      The three letters in the base name are C, N and W. C stands for Cool undertones, N for Neutral undertones and W for Warm undertones. Also, as the number increases in the base name, the shade gets darker such that 0W is the palest shade with warm undertones and 7W is the darkest shade with warm undertones.

      The 5W Golden Tan is the closest match in comparison to the Sandy Medium. Olive shades need green added, so we would recommend that you add the Mint Color Corrector to your base shade that matches closest to your complexion. Thank You!
