Products that Actually Work: Bare Escentuals

As promised I am going to start on my series of product reviews. I am starting with my daily foundation. Bare Escentuals.

I have been around make up most my life. Especially my years spent as a make up artist. I can whip up a photoshoot appropriate foundation for just about anyone. However, I have always had a hard time finding the right foundation for myself. I found it!

I am freaking in love with this stuff. I used some of my moms foundation years ago and thought it was too light of coverage for me and wrote it off. How. Dare. I. I use the original in medium beige. This particular product has a tad shine to it. I do like it however I regret not buying the new matte. I like to control how much shimmer I have and where it ends up. Next time around I will definitely pick up the matte. For now I have been using the Mineral Veil when I feel overly shimmery.

The brush I was using was stolen from my mom. There are times when I wish the coverage could be a little bit heavier or wished I could target certain problem areas. Just the other day I went in to buy a new brush. When the lady suggested using a brush I have only known to be used for liquid foundation I (literally) looked at her like she was crazy. This brush is fantastic! I had one just like it at home already so I didn't buy the BE one. I highly recommend this brush. I've been using it on blemishes and under the eye.

Have any of you tried this product? What was your experience? Was it positive or negative?

Dropping a Note

I have had plans to a fantastic post about some products I use that actually work. That should be going up this week.
Friday I went on an unexpected date. We mini golfed. It was so much fun!

Outfit for the show:
Dress: F21
Tights: Marshalls (sadly ripped and now trash)
Shoes(not visible): Ross

Saturday I went to a friends fashion show. I have never opened so many bottles of wine before ( I helped man the wine table)

Today, I have been nursing my poor feet from dancing and walking all over the place in my heels and myself, I've been a little sick over the weekend. I also made face time at the Walk for Autism where my company had a booth. It was actually really exciting! The boy I went on a date with came with me.

Tomorrow is a work holiday. Still have stupid class. I am expecting a very relaxing and productive day.

Oh, Just Setting World Records.

So on Sunday my family and I helped Davis set a world record for the biggest bike parade. It was so much fun let me tell you! I feel so lucky to finally have family I can share in these memories with. My aunt was ecstatic! She has a laundry list of health problems, very painful ones, and in previous years she wouldn't be able to partake in events like these. I have to say thanks to her recumbent bike she is ready to take over the world! I had so much fun! We had to stay in a single file line and wear bibs with microchips in them so we could be officially counted! It was a pretty quick loop around Davis but so much fun! Afterward there was music and food. So. Much. Fun!
