bare escentuals id minerals WOW

i love love love bare minreals! I used to work in a Salon that sold this product- i swear half of my paycheck was gone every week. I think that i have tried everything that they make. I am very very pale and rosy and it is hard to find a non-yellow tinted foundation that isn't too pink and covers up my rosy cheeks, I wear fair- the lightest color. I have been wearing it for 5 years now. When i run out and have to use back up liquid foundation my face feels so dirty- i hate it. The eyeshadows are great, and the blushes. I really love their brushes, especially the shorter handles- i can take my brushes with my easily wheni travel and i love that. I have had the same brushes for the entire 5 years and they still look great, i wash them weekly. The $60 kit is the BEST way to get started the brushes alone at retail prices are over $60 if bought seperately. The kit doesn't have full size foundation in it, there are two colors so they are smaller sized.- but it lasted me about 4 months. The regular large size lasts me about 8 months. Oh and they have some great eye brushes. I think that i have all of them. MD Formulations is a sort of sister company to them and supplies the Face Wash that comes in the kit- Try it- that stuff is great- their entire line is great as well. I miss sellling this stuff and doing makeovers so much! It was so much fun. I'm embarrassed this got so long

Do you guys just use the BE foundation or all of the other products as well. I could only afford the foundation and I like it alot although I still look a little shiny after its on. Does anyone have that problem?

I love those commercials! If i see it while channel flippin, i stop and watch the whole thing!
I love Bare Minerals but it makes my face itchy if I get hot right after I put it on. Like in the summer. Has anyone else had that happen? It's kinda irritating.

In the kit I just received from QVC, I got Weather Everything mascara. Its awesome..makes my lashes curl..I love it. I normally don't wear waterproof, but I'll make an exception for this one.

If you click on the Kits link, you can order a sample kit with samples of several foundation colours and finishes, a blush and finishing powder. They are very generous samples and you only pay for shipping
If you can't be a Good Example, then you'll just have to be a Horrible Warning
so i cought the 3 hour qvc b.e. special the other day and i want to try some of the eyeshadows/liners..right now im set on the foundation, tinted mineral veil, and bisque for my eyelids and under eye area....

i bought meet the browns at sephora but havent used em yet but the new meet the stones looks nice too and i also wanted to try their black eyeliner with the eyeliner brush...has anyone used the eyeshadows? what are your fav colors? (my eyes are bright blue if that helps)

I do love the eyebrow powder though.

For those of you that use the BE eyeshadows - do you find that they stay on?
And if so how do you get them to stay on?

I have a few of them and truthfully, on me they've worn off after about an hour. They are pretty but I think I prefer "regular" eye shadows for staying power.

No more PJ tendencies. Tigi Curls Rock Curl Amplifier is the best thing to make my curls rock all day! Next best are KCCC and Re:Coil +HE TT Gel.
I've been using BE for over two years now. I love it, it is so much easier and more fool-proof to apply a loose powder than a liquid that can get all streaky! I don't want to look like I'm wearing a mask to hide my real identity! ~~jax
2c or 3a Cut most of my hair off in July '12 and am working on regrowing it.
i finally used my meet the browns and they were great!! didnt look all cakey or anything...the colors blened together fabulously...the best way to get eyeshadow to stick is to put an eyeshadow primer base on first. it really makes a world of a difference.


my favorite is by benefit cosmetics called f.y.eye...

I broke down and bought the BE kit in Sephora about a month ago and I love it. I have never been good with putting makeup on but this is so easy and you can really see the difference but yet it still looks natural. Love it!
