I have a friend, Kirsten, who is beautiful. I have always admired her skin. One day I was at her house and noticed an i.d. Bare Minerals container on her bathroom counter. Of course, I had seen the many infomercials, but being skeptical of purchasing anything on TV, I had been afraid to try it. When Ulta open in Grand Rapids, I discovered they carried it and thought I would give it a shot. That was about 3 years ago and I will never use another foundation or powder again. My favorites are: Bisque, Summer Bisque, Faux Tan (awesome bronzer), and of course the original Mineral Veil. I also like Bare Radiance and some of the other all over colors.
I use the bisques with the maximum coverage brush as a cover up and it works better then any I have tried. It doesn't look cakey either. I do not like their "foundation" as I do find this to be too heavy for me. But the rest of this line always looks natural and you can even sleep with it on. I have acne prone skin and this make-up doesn't clog your pores and is actually good for your skin. Even though it is pricey, it is worth it. You have to use very little product and I don't think I have even consistently stuck with the same make-up for as long as I have with this.
