~Bare Escentuals~

A few years ago, my mom and sisters started using Bare Escentals makeup. I was interested, but the cost was a little more than I could swing at the time. However, this Christmas, I used some gift money towards this makeup. I bought the starter kit, and several eye shadows and brushes. I love it! The foundation hides blemishes very well, and covers my face nicely. I don't have that "caked on" feeling anymore!

What is Bare Escentuals? It is a makeup made from minerals (or as my husband says, "dirt". LOL) It is natural, and easy to use. It does take a little getting used to, but I can quickly apply it now that I'm used to it! Here's a link to learn more about it.

When I was in California, I went to a Sephora store with one of my sisters. It was nice to be able to try it out before I bought it. The starter kit comes with a DVD that shows you how to apply it, which is helpful if you don't have a Sephora store nearby.

I had never paid any attention to this makeup until a few weeks ago when a friend mentioned it. Then I went and bought some mineral makeup at the store, but it's not this brand. I like the coverage I get, but it's still a cream, not a powder, and I'm really wanting to try the powder. I think I'll try it out next time I need makeup.

OH TAMMY!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE B.E.!!!!! I've been using it for several years now and cannot imagine using anything else! I LOVE that I use just a little (foundation) and it covers SO well!!! Truly, a little goes a long way. It does cost a bit more, BUT it takes me a little over a year to go through one thing of foundation!! And eye shadows last even longer for me!! And the eye liner.... OH BOY!! I LOVE using their eye liners, mixing a smidge of water with it and lining it on (like liquid eye liner). Such a smooth line that stays put all day. LOVE IT!!! And I LOVE their quick-sticks (lipstick) in FIG!!! The BEST color!!

Yes, I could go on and on and on and on about B.E. I highly recommend it to everyone!

Oh, and if you ever watch QVC, when they have B. E. shows, they can have some really wonderful deals. :)

I love it, too! I've been using it for a couple of years. Like Mrs. U said, QVC does have some good deals from time to time. I also have bought items on eBay at a greatly reduced price. :)

I started using B.E. about a year ago. I too waited to use it because of price but I love it! You can find good deals on it on ebay though.

You know, I never hear anything but praise for this, um, "dirt" ~ lol ~ (I thought your hubby's term was just too cute!). One of these days . . . I'm gonna try this stuff. Thank you for doing the review; you have a practical way of looking at things which I appreciate very much.
