Is it worth paying the monthy fees for bare minerals?

I just ordered a kit and i never really liked foundation since places like MAC have sold me 2 wrong colors in the past one was too dark then too light.
So i am wondering if you have enjoyed yours?

  • I absolutely love Bare Minerals. I actually buy mine at a beauty supply store called Ulta II. I get it cheaper than the online/TV cost and NO MONTHLY FEES! I don't use it often enough to need it every month anyway. I buy a new kit for around $25 ever 3-4 months. Also, a good shop will have someone there to help you with the product the first time to make sure you are getting the right shade and know how to put it on correctly. You can also see if there's an Id (the company that makes Bare Escentuals) store at a local mall in your area. Those women are trained in that makeup and you can get what you want/need without shipping or monthly fees.

  • My SIL uses a brand called Bare Escentuals (or something like that). It's the same thing, different brand. She absolutely loves it and her makeup always looks great.

  • No. You can buy the same stuff at the store. Everyone has a line of mineral powder makeup now.

  • I love it, I will not use anything else. I also use the eyeshadow, primer and lip stuff. I just go to the store and get it (ULTA)

  • No. Everyday Minerals is better quality at a fraction of the price. Everyone I know has converted because Everyday Minerals doesn't have to mark the product up to those exorbitant amounts due to less overhead. Check out the site, order a free sample kit and see for yourself. Check out Skin Deep for comparisons.
