Do you ladies recommend Bare Escentuals?

I'm really interested in trying it, but I hate to waste money. Is it worth it?

  • It works good if you don't have major acne, or smile lines. I used it for two years. It doesn't cover very well, and it settles in the creases of smile lines and wrinkles. I changed over to Smashbox, primer, concealer, foundation, and powder. No breakouts and awesome all day coverage that looks airbrushed.

  • BE was my introduction to mineral makeup. That said, I still use mineral makeup, but have switched to Everyday Minerals (http://www.everydayminerals.com) because BE felt a little itchy on my skin. They are also less expensive than BE, but I think you can only order them online. They have a lot more shades to choose from as well, but since you can't see it in person, you can order samples. Another company I like is e.l.f. (http://www.eyeslipsface.com) - they also have some mineral makeup that is super inexpensive, though I haven't tried them yet.

  • I definitely have obvious wrinkles in my under eye area as well as bad under eye circles,so it probably isn't for me! Thanks so much!

  • I'm a professional make up artist, and I get more complaints about the settling in the wrinkles. If you have any other questions about makeup or hair feel free to message me. :)

  • It's pretty much all I use and I love it. I like really light coverage and I like my make-up to look natural. Whenever I have it on, it feels like I don't even have anything on. I also find the make-up blends well and easily. It's definitely worth a try, in my opinion. I've tried all kinds of make-up brands, even pricier ones, and I've stuck with B.E. for over 2 years now. :)
