Bare Minerals

5 Feb

If you hated the idea of wearing liquid or cream foundation, yet you want a smooth-looking, even toned complexion (and being all natural may not provide it), then may i suggest to you the mineral foundation. It has certainly made a huge difference to how people view foundation today, as it is not only a make up but has skincare properties too.

Of late, many have jumped on the mineral make up bandwagon. And with the increasing interest on safe, natural and organic products, this approach has become very popular. Some say, you can even sleep in mineral make up and it’s apparently good for the skin. Err..i dont know about that….make up is make up, and no one should sleep in it! I feel, despite the fact that they are made of pure minerals and is 100% talc, preservatives and fragrance free.

I bought the BareMinerals set last year at Sephora. This brand received so much praises and reviews I couldnt help but tried it.

– natural looking
– lightweight
– needs small amount only
– comes in a starter kit with a dvd
– medium coverage
– non comedogenic
– suitable for sensitive skin, hypoallergenic
– lots of people reported having clearer and better skin after using mineral make up for a while, I didnt see much difference though

– can appear cakey if applied too much
– pretty messy for me
– hated the brushes that come with the set
– cant be applied with the fingers like liquid foundation, this is crucial when in a rush

In a nutshell, BareMinerals foundation is one that you either hate or love. Seriously!

I however feel both ways. I used to love it, then hated it and now…loving it again !
