Tried it and I just don’t like it.

I am always hearing how great bareMinerals and Bare Escentuals are for your skin and how flawless they make your skin look. So I decided I would finally try it out and started with the bareMinerals foundation but instead of flawless skin I think I looked more flawed.

A friend who is a big BE fan said maybe I need some of the other face powders they sell to use with the foundation for a more flawless look. I feel though that when I buy a foundation it should look good on all it’s own maybe enhanced by partner products but not dependent on them.I know a lot of people use bareMinerals and love it but every time I tried it I just wanted to take it off it made my pores look huge and my skin looked better with out anything on it.

bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation

What it is:
A mineral-based foundation that gives flawless coverage.

What it does:
Made of only pure, crushed minerals from the earth, bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation looks like a powder, feels like a cream, and buffs on like silk, giving skin a natural luminosity while feeling as if you are not wearing any makeup at all.

What else you need to know:
The coverage is complete and is free of preservatives, talc, oil, waxes, fragrances, and other chemicals that can irritate skin and cause breakouts.

What it is formulated to do:
Gone are the days of sparse, thin brows – say hello to fuller, thicker-looking brows with Nu Brow. The unique gel-based formula is designed to help restore thin, over-plucked, and undernourished eyebrows. The deep conditioning action works to help stimulate brow growth, leaving them looking bold and beautiful.

What else you need to know:
Unlike other eyebrow regrowth products on the market that claim to work in a few months, Nu Brow is clinically proven to stimulate the hair follicle in as quickly as 4-6 weeks! An easy-to-use applicator allows the non-greasy formula to glide on smooth without tugging or pulling and is gentle enough to be used every day. Nu Brow is not harmful to the eyes or the surrounding skin area, plus as an added bonus, it also slows down excess hair loss, which results in a healthier fuller-looking brow.
