This explains why sometimes my face would break out for the past year! I bought the starter kit of Bare Minerals last July and I will say I'm satisfied with how long the kit lasted. But that's the extent of my positive review. The kit came with two foundations, one matte and one original. I started using the original and then switched to the matte bc I didn't feel the original had enough coverage nor did it help the shine from my oily skin.
I know this makeup is recommended for oily skin, but honestly I don't think it's for me. Some days I go in the bathroom at work and my face just looks like it's caked with foundation even though I barely put any on in the morning! I think when my face gets oilier throughout the day this makeup makes my face look worse.
It's also really difficult to remove (to me). I can wash my face with a good cleanser and then take a cotton ball with mild astringent and wipe on my face and the cotton ball will be brown from all the makeup left before after I wash my face! Disgusting. No other makeup has left behind so much product in my pores before.
