Bare Minerals


I usually just use a tinted moisturizer on my face, but lately I've been thinking of adding a little something extra for those bad skin days. I've heard plenty of rave reviews about Bare Minerals but I'm a little skeptical about buying something without trying it, although $60 for this kit isn't too bad a deal. Have you tried it or do you use it on a regular basis? Are the knock-off brands fine? Help!

I use Bare Minerals and I will never go back to liquid or pressed powder foundation. This stuff looks very natural and it doesn't even feel like you have makeup on! Also, it doesn't look cakey if you add more later which is something I really like. I definitely recommend Bare Minerals! Let me know if you have any questions :) I've been using it for about two years!

It's really buildable and lightweight! I definitely reccomend it, and it also lasts for a long time.

I was skeptical about Bare Escentuals too but I tried it last week and really liked it.

They have $18 kits that just have small sizes of the stuff you need. I got mine at Sephora. I think that's a good one to try out and then if you like it, you can get the bigger one.

I don't really think it gives you lasting coverage, by the end of the day I always feel like its gone. Depends what you are looking for, but its pretty good

Cute blog! My friends tease me and tell me they are going to sign me up for the Bare Minerals infomercial. I'm always going on about how much I LOVE IT! I don't wear a lot of makeup and it gives just enough coverage without making you feel like you have a bunch on. I takes a few times to get it down but once you do, you will be hooked.

I am a Bare Escentuals fan and would highly recommend the Mineral Veil translucent face powder. It is the best face powder I have found so far on the market. It provides excellent coverage and can be reapplied throughout the day. The best part is how light weight the formula is and no caking!

I tried it five years ago and have NEVER looked back. I promise you'll never wear liquid foundation again. Ever!

P.S. - Go to Sephora and try it. That's where I did.
