Primer/ Corrector -Bare Escentuals -BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer

on 2/22/2018 11:56:00 AM


Nothing special about this primer. Reminds me of smashbox photo finish primer that I used over a decade ago. Silicone base, so super smooth application. Don't put too much on to avoid pilling. Works well with my liquid and powder foundation from different brands (MAC, Clinique, It cosmetics). If its on sale I may purchase again.

Liquid -Bare Escentuals -bareMinerals BarePro Liquid Foundation

on 2/22/2018 11:10:00 AM


I love this foundation! I have mature skin and I get so excited when I find a perfect colour match for my ddd skin. This foundation lasts all day on me and I make sure to prime first with either Too Faced Hangover or Nivea’s primer in the jar. I alternate this with my other favourite: Lancôme Teint Idole. For reference in Sephora’s colour IQ system, I am 1Y12 and wear Chai.

Concealers -Bare Escentuals -Summer Bisque

on 2/18/2018 10:51:00 PM


My absolute Holy Grail product!!!! I use this EVERY day! I’ve gotten creative with it too. If I need extra coverage - or if my skin is dry - I mix it with eye cream or moisturizer and pat that on my under eye circles or wherever else I need coverage. Then I lightly brush on a little more (without the moisturizer) to seal it. Lasts all day! I’ve also discovered that the right brush is everything with this product. I use ELF eyeshadow brush which is super fluffy and synthetic (so it’s soft) and perfect for lightly dusting a layer on. A little goes a long way with this stuff - a light touch is key - and I’ve found other brushes cake it on and look powdery (and make my skin/me look old). Sometimes I just take my finger and lightly pat it on wherever I need coverage. The pot with the sliding sifter top is genius and prevents the product from getting all over. I’ve tried so many concealers and I’ve never found any that work as well as this one does.

Eye Shadow -Bare Escentuals -Pebble

on 2/15/2018 9:12:00 PM


I’ve owned this shadow for awhile. I wasn’t overly impressed with it at first. Fast forward maybe a year and I can’t seem to stop using this eyeshadow. I love it for a blending/crease color. The color isn’t too warm on me. I always use a eye primer. I’ll wear a light or dark color on my lids then this in the crease and then blended upward. Add a highlight for the brow and boom you’re done. This is a soft brown and perfectly suitable for daytime. It looks like a really boring color but once it’s on my eyes I can’t believe how pretty it is. Bare Minerals loose shadows last forever, but would not hesitate to repurchase if I ever run out.

Tinted Moisturizer -Bare Escentuals - Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

on 2/14/2018 12:56:00 PM


I am NC25-30 I bought the color Bamboo. It is hydrating not oily. I use it as a primer or base for powder foundation or liquid foundation. I have very oily t-zone but at the same time my skin feels dry. I do have acne I use Paula’s choice and cerave for skin care. This feel very nice under any type of foundation and balances everything out. Coverage is not much if acne scaring and ongoing acne is going on. I will buy this again because it makes every base I use workout wonderfully.

Foundation I have used with this , just to name few, Mac studio fix powder foundation, studio fix liquid, Estée Lauder double wear, mineralize skin finish natural, everyday mineral loose powder foundation, maybelline fit me matte, L’Oréal infallible pro matte, maybelline liquid air mouse ( don’t remember exact name), bare mineral original loose foundation, tart Amazonian clay powder foundation and also mousse one in a tube and many other.
It is expensive considering the amount I need to evenly apply it on my entire face. I will recommend getting it on sale like 20% off coupon when ulta does send one. I do not apply is too much like a actual base but enough to cover the face. I use my hands , don’t want to waste product. I do apply cerave pm moisturizer before this and Jajoba oil or any oil from Ordinary brand very lightly under my eye area because it gets very dry. Hope this review helps :).thanks and good luck.
