Jumping on the bandwagon.....

So, I know that the Bare Minerals craze is not new by a long shot, but to be honest with you - I have *always* resisted it.  I've worked for Aveda, Stila and Laura Mercier so I've always stuck with what I've known and loved.



Well, my skin has gotten worse since having kids (those little buggers really do a number on every part of you!)  I still break out, but I get super dry now and am beyond sensitive.  Blech.  Nina raved about how much she loved Bare Minerals, and after hearing about a zillion other people rave about it I decided to give it a go.  I went to the mall completely kid-free and with no time constraints (thanks, babe!)  and headed straight to the Bare Escentuals boutique and tried it all.  I promised myself I'd try it on, wait a day and then go back to purchase it if I loved it.  Um.....that didn't happen. I left with the full kit which is a seriously awesome value at $60, and a handful of eye shadows.  I'll be going to Ulta for some new blushes, since I just got a 20% off your entire purchase coupon, including Bare Minerals - d'oh!



Oh, well.  Ladies - if you haven't tried Bare Minerals (which I'm sure you have) run, don't walk to try it out now!!  And if you already use it, let me know what your favorite products are!

The same thing happened to me a few years back! I also learned that QVC.com usually has some deals and kits and they come with brushes (they have awesome brushes). I also, sadly, amassed over 250 eyecolors. Addict, yes. Also, if the eyecolors fade quickly for you through the day Urban Decay Primer Potion is awesome :)

I too was a skeptic - then I tried it. I can never go back. LOVE IT!

I *love* Bare Minerals!

Mineral Veil is my favorite.

I love Bare Minerals. My favorite is Well Rested followed closely by Mineral Veil. I too am an eye shadow junkie. I also buy Ulta's mineral eye shadow because it works just as well and is cheaper, especially when they do a buy one get one free sale.

Liquid foundation has always been my enemy, so I was quick to jump on this bandwagon several years ago. I love my Bare Minerals! Mineral Veil is at the top of my list, along with bisque and the concealer brush. I wonder how I ever lived without that concealer brush! Welcome to the bandwagon. :)

MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, welcome to the dark side :) I still love it just as much as I did a few weeks ago. The only complaint is that my skin is a bit drier than before, but I'm oily so that's kinda helpful. Just pile on the lotion and you'll be great!

I LOVE the blush the most. I'm dying to get some eye shadows too :)

How funny............I just bought that same kit from ULTA a few weeks ago too. hehe. They sure getcha, don't they? I love the less oily / less shine, but my wrinkles are showing up more. The jury is still out. Oh, but it DOES make the rest of my skin look much smoother and nice.....it's just around my eyes that I don't like. :)
