I hope everyone is finding themselves in the spirit of the season and enjoying their holidays. My break starts today and I am exstatic that I do not have to go to work for two weeks. I find myself wanting to go shopping, but sadly the money has been used up for Christmas presents already. I have nothing more to buy for Christmas and cannot justify spending money on anything else.
Just recently for my birthday, I got the Bare Minerals Matte Foundation and Concealer. My foundation color is light while my concealer color is bisque. I've really wanted to give this a try for a long time. Acutally I bought a friend of mine Bare Minerals Foudation for Christmas as it was what she requested. She absolutely raves about how much she likes it, so I thought I would give it a go.
After purchasing it, and trying it numerous times, I feel that it's just "OK" in my opinion. I realize many people like this foundation so I'll tell you the pros and cons in my opinion. One thing that I can say is that I was amazed at how this product is a powder but covers like a liquid foundation. My only turn off is that the coverage didn't last throughout the day for me. I tried applying different primers to combat this problem. I've used MAC's Prep and Prime, NARS Face Primer, and Under Your Spell Face Primer from Spell Cosmetics. None of these helped the Bare Minerals Foundation stay on all day. I do however the idea that I only have to apply a powder instead of liquid and powder. If I would be a person that would reapply makeup throughout the day, this would be a product I would love; however, I am not a person that has the time for that with the job I have.
Bare Minerals has a variety of shades of their foundation to match just about any skin tone. In my opinion that's a good thing. So my questions for you are:
Do you use Bare Minerals?
What do think are the pros and cons of it?
What are your thoughts?
