I personally don’t think it makes a huge difference. I have very oily skin and I was shiny by the end of the day as usual. I wouldn’t recommend it.

I have it and it’s great! I have combination skin, and have used the original foundation for some time now. I got the matte version a few months ago and I can totally see a difference. First off, I only have to apply powder 1 time during the day (just in the t-zone area where I normally get really oily) versus the 3 – 4 times I had to apply before. 

I used it for our engagement photos and it gave off that perfect ‘glow’.
Plus, it makes your pores look smaller! I would definitely recommend it. 

If you’re still unsure, try going to a Sephora and having them do a makeover on you using the matte foundation. That way you can try it out for free before buying a whole container!

I used the matte version for my wedding.  I have very normal skin, my forehead can get oily at times.  It is wonderful, but so is the normal version.  I definitely have less shine than with the normal foundation, and the woman at the Bare Escentuals store told me it photographs less shiny.  It did look weird (almost cakey) in some of my photos before I put on the mineral veil, but I used the shimmery mineral veil, so it made my face glow.  Id recommend trying it before the wedding

Good thread, I have been wondering about this!! Maybe for my next refill I’ll try the matte.

I LOVE the matte.  I have oily/combination skin, and it is so much better than the traditional.  Definitely stays on longer.

This is a great thread. My sister bought the Matte but I never asked her what she liked about it in comparison to the regular.

Thanks for the reviews ladies.

I’m so glad this was posted. I’ve been wondering, but didn’t want to commit. I’m going to Sephora!

I just bought it!

Its comepletly different, there is no glitter or shine and it  feels a little more dry.

It would be great for oily and acne prone skin. I have dry skin and its still pretty great.

I like it so far.

I was just looking at this yesterday and wondering if I would be able to see a difference. When my original powder runs out I’ll get this!

I really do love mine. I have started mixing mine with the original version now that it’s getting colder out (my skin gets drier in the colder months and doesn’t get as oily) and it’s amazing. I just love the BE line – the blush lasts forever and looks GREAT mixed with a little gloss on the lips, the eyeshadow stays on all day and then some (LOVE the ‘weather anything’ liquid that turns it into a liner!) and the mineral veil is probably the greatest invention ever.
