Bare Minerals

Has anyone used Bare Minerals or the similar products made by Avon? I am looking at getting them, but I want to make sure that they do actually work decently. Did you have trouble finding your proper shade? Were they hard to use?

  • I got the Bare Essentials kind from target and LOVE it!!! it was the best $50 I ever spent on make up.

    I did make a mess of the bathroom counter the first few times I used it though LOL

    I highly recommend the Bare Essentials.

  • I tried the bare minerals on the iternet and had the hardest time trying to match my color ( I am an olive complextion). And they are very expensive. I tried the Avon version and the rep helped me with the color and the results are mcuh better. Still expensive but worth it if it looks natural. It works great for my dark cirlcles, much better than that shiny, yellow concealer I used for years! And It didn't make my complextion worse (acne or red splotches) like the other product did.

  • I love Bare Minerals too. Most major brands Revlon and such are coming out with mineral makeups too.

  • Bare Minerals/Essentials are FANTASTIC. They really do work. Worth the money if you have skin issues.
