Bare Minerals

When us girls are in Springfield we usually can not leave until we stop in at Ulta. This last time we were there the husbands hung outside while Laura, Mandy and I went in to do some shopping...... The guys were very patient actually hehe

So, I was in desperate need of new foundation. I tend to battle oily skin and occasionally my son likes to get into my make up and destroy it. This occasion however I was just running on fumes and sense I was there I went ahead and looked around for something new that I can use.

Laura was looking into Bare Minerals at this time, but being the cheap person that I am I did not want anything to do with it. I then had asked Mandy what she uses for her face, because her skin always looks flawless, and she claimed that she used Bare Minerals also. Sense both girls know their skin care products and research this stuff religiously, I decided to let my cheap ways aside and try it....worst case scenario is that I did not care for it and then I would just return it.

Mandy had recommended that I purchase the starter kit. This kit includes foundation, mineral veil, bronzer, mineral primer, and three brushes. All of this for $60, which saves you over $70.

I had never really much money at all on foundation before so I really did not know what to expect.

The first time I used this product I had a few blemishes on my face. After putting on the foundation I just kept thinking "there is no way this is going to cover this up, I just wasted that money"

I then applied the veil and the bronzer. I soon realized that it did cover it up and made my face look flawless, young, and refreshed. The thing about this product is you will want to use more than what you really need, because it progresses into coverage. I know that sounds really confusing, but it gradually covers everything. I have learned that a little bit goes a LONG ways! These products will last a long time that is for sure! And I am pretty sure that I will never have to buy bronzer again.

So after the first time I used these products, I found myself occasionally checking back to the mirror to make sure that I had applied makeup. The makeup was so light that it felt like I wasn't even wearing makeup at all. It gives off such a natural feeling and look....just LOVE IT!

Something else that I really like about these is that the foundation, veil, and bronzer have a screw top as well as a clasp that rotate shut to keep the powders in the container. This keeps the powders from leaking every where and eliminates messes and wasting.

Because this makeup goes on light my skin has showed remarkable improvements when I don't where it. I have seen a drastic change in the health of my facial skin.

It is now official that I have finally found my one true love in makeup coverage!!! I am hooked!

And it is totally worth the $60 to get the whole kit with everything in it.

Laura's Thoughts


  1. whoop whoop!!!!! so glad we purchased this!!! Can't wait to try the blushes and eyeshadows!!

  2. Thanks for your sweet comment! cute blog.

  3. I use Nude by Nature. Same basic thing. Just a mineral based foundation. For me I hated the price too but it's hard to find something vegan so I bought it and now there's no way I could use anything else.

  4. I have never heard of Nude by Nature... I might just have to look into that one!
