  • I have no idea of how much it cost buy my daughter who has oily skin loves bare minerals. She said it keep her oil free and won't clog her pores. She loves the sheer coverage and how well it hides blemishes.

  • I don't think there is a set amount of money you should spend, you just kind of have to find one that works best for you. It might be cheap and it might not be. I use Laura Mercier oil free foundation from Sephora, I've found that it gives me the best coverage because I have uneven skin tone, acne, and combination skin. It costs about $42 a bottle, and lasted about 6 months for me (please don't bash me, I rarley spend money on myself and I enjoy really good make up, we all have things that we enjoy). I like Bare Minerals too, but personally I found that it made my face look flakey and didn't have the coverage I needed. :)

  • I pay about $3 for my foundation, $1 for concealer and $1 for powder and they all work just fine. The only "expensive" make I buy is Maybelline eyeliner and mascara because I can't wear anything else.

  • I have very oily skin and use Mary Kay makeup. I have been using it for abut 12 years and they have only made their products better as the years have gone by. The foundation is between 12 and 14 dollars

  • You should spend how ever much you feel comfortable spending. I have combination skin and Bare Minerals and Arbonne work for me. You have to just try stuff until you find the one that works. Every one is different so what might work for one person might cause a horriable reaction for someone else.

  • if i were you i would stop past a Sephora or Ulta near you and ask what would be a good kind of foundation based on your skin type. I dont really worry about the price as long as its under $50. Im not picky about prices or brands as long as they work for me.
