Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals Foundation #3

Powder mineral foundation is wonderful if you have great skin. I use it on my daughter (she is a young dancer) and it looks wonderful on her - enough coverage for the stage lights but not over the top. However, on me, it is tricky because I have combination skin. On the dry parts of my face, eg. under the eyes, it brings out all the fine lines. If I put more moisturers (eye cream) underneath, the foundation gets all caked up and I literally have to wash everything off my face and start again. On the T zone, the foundation wears off quickly because of the oil, especially in a central-heated office. So yes, I would buy again - for my daugher but not for me.
I have used this eye cream continuously for the last 4 months. It is ok but nothing special. Considering the price of it, I certainly won't be buying it again.
I have used this product everyday for 4 years now. I quite like it. It helps keep my skin soft and clear of breakouts.
Don't bother with this one if you are after a rich eye cream. It does nothing!

I quite like this foundation. It gives a good, even coverage and lasts all day without shifting even on my oily T-zone. It is quite moisturising for the dry areas and the colour stays true all day as well.

I had a massive allergical reaction to this product - 12 hours after I put it on, my skin was red, very itchy and developed a rash. It took 3 days and application of a strong cortisone cream twice a day to finally bring the condition under control. Oh boy, it was scary!!!

I have known about this product for years but had always thought it was way too expensive to even bother. I finally bought a jar a few days ago and now I can't live without it. I have combination skin and this cream has actually helped in 'normalising' the T-zone, despite its very rich texture. I have only used it for a few days, day and night, and honestly, my skin has never been better.
