Tell me about your experiences with Bare Escentuals/Minerals

Recommended Posts

I went to sephora today and got my make up done. they used bare minerals on me, and I ended up buying the starter kit and some blush.

 

However, I set out to read reviews on the product and am finding a great deal of horrible reviews... people breaking out, enhancing pore visability, etc. Especially those with sensitive skin.. which I definitely have.

 

What's your experience with Bare Minerals?

I have very sensitive skin and I have never had a problem with bare escentuals. I've been using it for almost two years now and I love it! It makes my skin look so even after I apply it. I suggest trying it for your self and see how it works. I hope all goes well.

I also loved it. I got it for my wedding and wore it and then wore it everyday till about 2 months ago. I have light sensitive skin and it improved my skin. I just switched to organic tinted moisturize. So I don't wear alot of makeup. But I wear BE for special occasions.

I actually only started using it a week ago, bought the UK version of the starter kit, which includes the 2 foundations, 3 brushes, the mineral veil and a blusher....I've not broke out or anything. But I do have large pores and don't feel like it covers them up the way the box says it would! I'm not hugely upset about it, but think I might go instore the next time I'm near the store I bought it from, and get them to do my make up for me to make sure I'm doing it right. I know I tend to use as little as possible, not a big makeup wearer, so maybe i'm not using enough...or maybe i'm not swirling enough!lol

 

All in all, i would recommend it though, and will buy refills.

I was just watching an infomercial wondering how well it worked. I tend never trust infomercials. It's nice to hear that real people (not paid actors) actually like the product.

I used it a couple times. I do not have sensitive skin, but it made my face feel itchy an hour or two after I put it on. I didn't break out and it didn't irritate my skin(visibly), but it felt weird and I stopped wearing it. It looked great though!

I have used it off and on, only by using my girlfriends, and I really loved it. I have a lot of freckles, and love how it mildely hid them, but didn't give me a caked on feel. I've been watching all the infomercials as well, and am tempted to purchase the kit. I am a loyal Estee Lauder and Laura Mercier fan, and believe that cosmetics should not be skipped on as far as expense is concerned. I come from a family of women that are beautiful, and have hardley any wrinkles and they tell me it's becuase they splurge on quality cosmetics. Hence my temptation to purchase Bare Essentials.

i love Bare Escentuals! I have been using the foundation for 6 years. my mom recommended it to me and I have recommended it to many friends who are very happy. I have sensitive skin, too. I have broken out using their primer so I just stick to the powders now.
