Pros: it's creamy and doesn't cause breakouts
Cons: it can be cakey
Since I reviewed most of the foundations that I came across on my life time, I felt the need to review the Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals as well. But, I was hesitant because what more can I say than cakey, cakey, cakey? I literally thought that I was going to fill up all the space with the word cakey and I would feel great because thats all I need to know, but there are people that live by this foundation, so Ill start with the good things.
This does not cause any breakouts whatsoever, and doesnt try out my skin like many mineral makeups or just powders do. But, I have to say that this makes my face oily as well. I guess it cant hold the moisture or things like that but when my face gets oily, this seriously shows it instead of hiding it.
When I first started using this I loved it because it was just so soft and silky. So, the texture is just great. I think its really one of the best out there. On one of the infomercials, it said that Bare Minerals is so silky and goes on very creamy, and I agree with some parts. I really liked the way that it applied. It wasnt creamy but, I guess, a bit creamier than other mineral makeups that Ive tried, and it felt comfortable in my skin. Some makeups just makes your acne more irritated, and I have acne prone skin so I always had at least a couple of zits or whiteheads, but I felt that this doesnt irritate my skin at all. Just because its texture is good, it doesnt mean that itll make your face look good though.
I used this for a long time so I know that this cakes. Well, thats just the thing that I hate the most. It makes it so obvious that youre wearing makeup and it wouldnt set in right sometimes. So, I thought that all makeups did that but a lot of good makeups dont.
So, I guess this powder isnt so bad after all. In addition, this is very gentle on the skin so I never had any troubles and I think it actually helped my skin. I guess the makeup so pure line isnt all wrong. But, I dont know. I just dont like the foundations make my face so obvious and this does exactly that. Seriously, this cakes and for me, it was very bad.
