Bare Escentuals - The New Essentials

I'd been dying to try Bare Escentuals pure mineral makeup for some time because, one, I'm a sucker for great marketing, and two, it's suppose to be great for gals with sensitive skin and I top that list. Not only can you find this product at fine cosmetic counters, but top dermatologists carry it too. Free of preservatives, talc, waxes, oils, fragrances and other stuff we don't need that causes breakouts. Made from crushed pure minerals, there isn't anything here to clog your pores, plus it contains natural sunscreens, so it comes recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. It's powder foundation that goes on with a brush and it feels like nothing on your skin. I am truly impressed with it's coverage and a little goes a long way. It took me a bit to get the hang of it, but there is no turning back. I recommend the i.d. bareMinerals Foundation - $25 US and the Tinted Mineral Veil - $19 US. New staples in my makeup bag.

I use this and it's the best. I got it at Sephora in New York and it's got amazing coverage, it's not thick or cakey and it has an spf in it. You can't go wrong.

OMG - I thought I was being an infomercial sucker when I went online and ordered this stuff, but I too, totally love it!
