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?

  1. I use Bare Minerals and I LOVE it. I have fair skin and it's always been hard for me to find the right shade, but their 'Fair' works perfectly!
    Plus no makeup lines, no caked-on makeup, and it doesn't run down your face on those humid days! :)

    Love. Love. Love.
