Have any of you (or your wives/girlfriends/sisters/daughters/cool chicks you hang out with) ever tried Bare Minerals? Lately my face has been rejecting all of my tried and true liquid foundations, breaking out at the mere sight of a makeup sponge. It’s gotten to the point that I’ve given up wearing makeup, except for special occasions. Which is fine, except that I don’t want those special occasions to be catalysts for the next several days spent fighting a pubescent complexion.
A few years ago I tried the Neutrogena knock-off, but it made me look a little orange. Li’L Sis took the plunge and tried the real thing, and swore by it, except I think it made her look a little orange, too. But I think she might have been using a darker shade than she should have been. I can’t remember whether the Neutrogena stuff made me break out, but I wasn’t having the skin issues I was having back then, so now it’s a whole new ball game.
Anyway, I’m asking now because Ulta’s having a 3 day online special where you can get a starter kit for $50 (if you’re interested, the code is BAREGIFT10). That’s way on the pricey side for me, but for all you get it seems like a good value, and if it does everything it claims and doesn’t cause my acne to flare up, it would be totally worth it.
