Sephora-Lunch Thursday - Bare Escentuals

I didn't even need to step foot in Sephora for today's installment of Sephora-Lunch Thursday. Bare Escentuals is my absolute favorite brand of make up and I tell EVERYONE I know to use it. If you havent seen the mountain of starter kit boxes at Sephora or at a Bare Escentuals Boutique for that matter, or if you have and haven't forked out the $60 to get one I have no idea why youre still sitting here reading this blog!

There are so many products I could talk about, from the skin care line to the amazingly sparkly eye shadows, but I shall save those for another day. Today I have to praise the Bare Minerals Matte SPF Foundation. When I first started using these products about 5 years ago (at the urging of my Aunt) I was a little freaked out about how to use loose powder foundation. I was so used to using liquid or MAC pressed powder. I used to be married to the MAC because as a performer, heavy coverage is often needed on stage. Unfortunately the heavy coverage offered by MAC also made me break out... After one use of the Get Started Kit I was hooked. The brushes that come in it are amazing and you can control the coverage depending on your needs, light for day, heavy for time-o-the-month breakouts, ultra heavy for stage lights. Not only that but this powder also has SPF 15 so no need to wear any additional pore clogging sunblock!  I wont even start on the Mineral Veil... 

If you haven't tried Bare Minerals please do! If you have, what are your favorite products??

PS. I was NOT paid for this post (although I wouldn't say no to any BE gifts that might come my way :))

  1. I love the brushes! What a great deal with the kit. The brushes by themselves would all be well over $60, so to get them with the kit AND a starter powder is a total bargain. Seriously. The best make up. Loves. :)
