  • 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. www.passion4more.myarbonne.com 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 http://www.iyinow.com/index.asp?myid=4622 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 www.youravon.com/lduryea I wouuld love to answer any question you may have about any of the products
