Bare Escentuals

I cannot rant and rave enough about Bare Escentuals makeup! I've been a devoted customer for almost three years now and cannot be without. If you are tired of that makeup line on your chin or tired of your face needing constant powder touch ups then you must must must try Bare Escentuals! I used to require powder at least 4 times a day because of my oily complexion. I never have to now! It is so refreshing to use a makeup that is actually good for your skin. I wish I had before and after photos to show how much my skin has cleared up. Hey, I thought acne was for teenagers??? I will state that a friend of mine who has dry skin said that this line was not for her. It did tend to make her skin more dry. I have never had that problem, but then again, I do not have dry skin at all.

When you see the prices, don't gasp! The foundation lasts for at least 6-8 months if I use it everyday, if not, it lasts even longer. Also, I've had some of the eyeshadows for almost 3 years!! A little goes a very long way. Completely worth the fact, I'd pay more, but don't tell them that!

Right now, Amazon has free shipping when you spend $75.00 or more on Qualifying Items offered by Sephora. Can't beat that! I usually have to drive across town to stay stocked up. I'll be pocketing the $ from the gas money now!

Haven't tried this makeup yet? Order the Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Enhancers ($136 Value) for $49!

I've used BE makeup for years. I cannot live without it either! The 'Get Started' pack is a great to start with and it's what I used at first. Good tip! :)

I have been using BE for a few years now and will use nothing else! I have Rosacea and this is the only make-up that helps without hindering.

OK ladies, I'm so tempted. I've seen this makeup on TV for years now and I've always wanted to try it out. Could you tell me, is it heavy makeup? I don't usually wear thick foundations. It looks light, but I've never tried it.

Hi Melody - I don't use this but use the L'oreal Bare Mineral makeup which is very similar. I am also amazed by how my face cleared up - I'm another one who thought I would never "grow out" of acne! My daughter uses Bare essentials so I'll tell her about this!

Jen & Sheila - glad to hear you're so happy with BE as well! I really cannot do without it.

Kerry - It is VERY light makeup, but has fabulous coverage. It's almost as though you aren't wearing any makeup at all. I used to use Mac's foundation. That is a great makeup, but VERY heavy. It would also make my face more oily. I really am a walking advertisement for BE products. My face has never been so clear and I no longer have that ugly foundation line around my chin! lol

Mari - I'm so glad to know that I'm not alone on the adult acne issue. I'm happy to hear your makeup is helping you with your complexion as well! :)

I too am a loyal BE user. I love,love, love it! My favorite thing is the fact you CANNOT feel it on your skin. I used to use liquid foundation and by the end of the day I couldn't wait to wash it off but now I can go all day and night and feel totally comfortable. For those on the fence, just give it a try. I promise you'll love it as much as we do. (btw, I usually get mine from QVC but a boutique recently opened in my area as well as a Sephora and an Ulta, so I don't have to go very far at all to get my faves.)
