Bare Minerals question

hilltop_gwOctober 21, 2005

When you indicate it takes longer to apply this versus traditional foundation and makeup--why and how much longer? Will a purchase of Bare Minerals last as long as say a purchase of another liquid foundation product so that cost is comparable for use?

I don't think it takes longer to apply. You are putting it on a brush and brushing it on your face - it's fast. It comes in different sizes. I think it's comparable in volume/use to a liquid.

It doesn't take longer for me. It's fast and super easy. I get my makeup on in only a couple of minutes, if even that. For me, Bare Minerals does seem to last about as long as liquid foundation -- maybe even a little bit longer. I just love it!

It actually takes less time for me to apply this than it did a liquid foundation. I would say I get a few more uses from a standard sized Bare Minerals than I would out of my normal bottle of foundation.

I find applying Bare Minerals to be faster than a liquid or cream, because the blending is easier (for me anyway). You don't have to worry so much about blending the area from your face to your neck, there's not really a definite "line" where the makeup on your face ends and your natural skin on your neck starts. I also feel that it lasts the same length of time as a bottle or tube of liquid or cream.

Have you tried it yet?

Sorry bluelou, I don't really know about the prices. I bought it from the Sephora store because I wanted to see it and try it in person before I bought it, and then I went back to the store also for my second jar because I decided to change colors - I went one shade darker and I'm really happy with the change. It is $25 at Sephora.

P.S. Bluelou - check out the craft forum, I saw your poem and asked my buddies on the cooking forum for some ideas.

The best place I've found to order Bare Minerals is They have free shipping over $25, and if you use the coupon code beaddicts they have 20% off this weekend on Bare Escentuals products.

I agree with Terriks, that's where I get mine. I signed up for their email. I wait for the 20% off, it's at least once a month....with free shipping, it's great.

I ordered the "fairly light" and find it's a bit too light and too yellow for me, so I'm going to go to Sephora and try another in person. If you can go and try it first, I recommend that.

Try I don't know how to post a link. I've been using their makeup for about a year. They have lots of colors and it's much cheaper.
