  • Personally, I think that bare minerals are great for younger people. But as I got older, I felt I needed more coverage. Bare minerals did not work for me. It seemed to wear off in a few hours. I can't speak for everyone, but that is my findings.

  • I've used the id Bare Essentuals for a couple years. I have bad skin and it limits my breakouts. MP uses either Maybeline or Loreal, so you should ask her too. I recently switched to Almay color match liquid foundation, because it's a better base for me, but I still use the Bare Essentuals for a concealer and I use their brand of Mineral Veil as a loose, translucent powder.

  • Krista Embry a famous make up artist recommends arbonnes mineral make up. Also arbonne has a 45 day guarentee so if for any reason you don't like it you can return it or exchange it. to check it out. I used it and loved it.. just like liquid a bit better so went back. Also she recommends the Intelligence Personalizer. Here is Krista Embry's link Check it out.. you can even get her DVD where you can do your whole makeup.

  • I've never tried Bare Minerals, but I do use mineral makeup. I use Physician's Formula mineral line, and it has worked sooo much better than anything I've tried in the past

  • wearing makeup will cause your skin to age faster! Its better to stick with a little gloss and a little bit of mascara instead of caking your face with powders and foundation.

  • MarGee, I could never go out with foundation at least, and I'm 32. I agree that it ages you faster, but might as well look good!

  • Did you know Avon has a mineral makeup called Smooth Minerals . Dollar for dollar it is the best value, and Avon been around for over 125 years, so I think they're doing something right.

    Smooth Minerals blush $10 verses Bare Minerals $18,
    Smooth Minerals eyeshadow $9.00 verses Bare Minerals $13
    Smooth Minerals foundation $11 verses Bare Minerals $25
    Smooth Minerals lipstick $8 verses Bare Minerals $15

    Plus they have a great return policy so you've got nothing to lose. Ordering online is quick easy,secure, and orders over $30 ship free! IMO your 30 buck will go alot further with Avon
    Please check out my Avon web store I wouuld love to answer any question you may have about any of the products
