So I’ve never been the kind of girl to put on a full face of makeup…maybe it’s because I’m blessed with nearly-perfect skin or maybe it’s because I’m purely lazy? (Probably a combination of both) However, after reading a review of Bare Escentuals on my favorite blog, Jolie in NYC, I decided to put my Sephora gift card to use and buy the i.d. bareMinerals Foundation ($25.)(that, p.s.- also contains SPF 15!). It is TRULY amazing! I don’t put much on and I did get a shade darker then I should have (listen- I’m pale and I like a little color, ok?) but I’ve never gotten so many compliements on my skin! Co-workers and friends are telling me that my skin looks like it’s “glowing” and “as smooth as silk.” I’ve also been noticing more mass beauty mineral products (Neutrogena, etc.) and a few articles on the topic of mineral makeup (Lucky, etc.) I think the stuff is worth every penny- though I do refuse to buy the brush that goes with it. I’m sure the Kabuki brush is nice and all but $28. for a makeup brush?! I’ll stick with the brush that came with my CHANEL bronzer, thanks.
