Erin almost everyone I know has started using Bare Escentuals and they love it. I don’t have any of the items in the kit though. I use an overall color and mineral veil for a foundation. I’m not sure how the Soft Focus True All-Over Face Color or the Finesse Glimpse works for coverage and the exact way to use it. I love the radiance tones you can layer, and the eye shadows are really nice nd they have sooooo many to chose and blend. You should totally find one of the Sephora sales girls who knows the product well to show you how to apply it and try different shades.

I like the actual foundations, and some of the eyeshadows, and I want to try their “diamond” something or other kit…

Their foundation isn’t the best. Though they say it is waterproof, it’s not, because when it rains and hits your face, it leaves awful streak marks. =(

It’s a great line if you have sensitive skin and no other options… but if you have large pours or any acne scarring, forget it. I tried to stick with it for the longest time b/c I thought I may just need practice in applying, etc… but it only looks its best in certain lighting. It almost acts more like a blemish highlighter when I try to cover a zit… it might be flesh-toned when I’m done, but it also has a weird, shiny film-like texture. I still like their mineral vein as a loose powder… and their “well-rested” powder can do a decent job for under-eye circles after a rough night.

I find Philosophy’s line of mineral makeup works wonders as an overall powder foundation and cover up. I wish they would extend the products.

I quit using bare minerals because I found it accentuated the lines around my eyes and any dry skin areas I would have. I still use the mineral veil, though.

I am not a fan. My skin is oily with large pores and this (any mineral makeup) made it look worse. it made me look very shiny.

I love bare minerals..well rested is great for under your eyes and bisque is great for covering up red marks and spots..they have great eyebrow tools as well..
