I take this makeup so much for granted that it took me this long to post about it.
I have used foundation for forever, since as a teen I was acne-prone. Actually, since I played sports it was probably a bad idea to wear foundation while playing/practicing, but it was one of those escalating situations where the more I wore, the more I needed to wear it to cover everything up.
Yeah, I never said I was a particularly bright teenager.
If only the Bare Escentuals line had been around back then!
I love everything about this stuff. I love how it blends flawlessly, how effortlessly matte it makes my skin look, its staying power, the SPF, the fact that under my eyes I no longer look like this. Or possibly worse, this, from overcompensation.
I can’t tell you how frustrating it was to find liquid foundation and undereye concealer that matched perfectly. The only one that came close was Prescriptives Custom Blend Foundation, but it was pricey and once I tried the mineral makeup, I never bought it again. I’ve been wearing Bare Escentuals now for about five years, and you will have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands before I stop using it. This is despite the fact that now that I am getting older, all the advice tells me I should be switching to a liquid foundation. Bah! Never again, says crone-Glinda!
I find that people come in basically two camps about Bare Escentuals.
Either they love it passionately, or they hate it with the fire of a thousand suns.
