bare minerals?!?! HELP!?

ok i have been searching for THE PERFECT makeup ever that lasts all day about 16 hours and gives me the coverage i need,well i found out that with an all day foundation it doesnt have alot of coverage and i couldnt find a good concealer for my acne and acne scars...so i was wondering is the bare minerals from sephora are they worth the money and do they really cover your flaws and last ALL day and look like you just put it on after 16 hours?!?!?!

    Yes, Bare Minerals is really top of the line and it is perfect for this time of year when the weather is hot. I would recommend using their face primer because it is concentrated just for mineral products and it will help the products stay on longer ...I was looking at Sephora and they do have some great starter kits and so does QVC ....QVC is a big promoter of Bare Minerals and offer some really good deals and they offer the thirty day money back guarantee as well ....I am sending you some links you might want to look at with different things in them .....I don't think you will go wrong with this product and you can check them out at Makeup Alley they have lots of message boards and user reviews on the product ....

    Hope some of this information is helpful ~~~

    I don't think you will go wrong purchasing this and it does give you thirty days ......I think the best bet would to get the kit with the primer in it ....or at least get the primer separate it is available in a small size to just see if you like it .

    Good Luck ~~~

    ** They offer these if you do have a problem with oily skin ...

    Actually, your skin sounds like mine. Unfortunately, BE is not the answer. BE does not cover well and despite all of the commercials, it does not do even what a liquid foundation can do. Revlon Colorstay is indeed the best formula that you can find. You may think that there is something out there that can do a better job but there is none. I have used any high end brand that you could think of or name. From Chanel to Vincent Longo and Georgio Armani. There is nothing as good as Revlon Colorstay for oily skin-

    Not sure who said that Bare minerals can't clog pores, but for anyone who is interested.....it DOES. Bare minerals contains bismuth...bismuth is not only a known skin irritant, it also clogs pores and accentuates fine lines and wrinkles. the coverage is average, they give you a VERY small amount of produt, and works terribly for acne-like or oily skin complexions. Try Sheer cover or afterglowcosmetics.

    I use bare minerals and it works great! I wouldn't reccommend it for someone who wants to find something that would cover extreme acne or dark spots. It is great at enhanceing your natural beauty. Worth the money.

    I use bareminerals but honestly i dont think they last all day, i find that they wear off. Especially if you have acne problems they are probably not the best makeup for you. Try a cream foundation but apply with a sponge so not to look heavily made up.

    YES. I work 10 hour days and can be at work all day and go out after work with only adding more dramatic eyeliner/mascara and doing a touch up with Mineral Veil. This is amazing stuff. It is like I have had my skin professionally treated and resurfaced since I started using it. Try it. You will love it! www.bareminerals.com

    Yes bare mineral is the best for your skin because it do not clog your pores and it is better for your skin then any of that other make up because the other types clogs your pores and put more acne on your face...

    Oh no Bare Minerals is gone and off your face within 2-3 hours.

    I found that if you use the brand bee luscious cosmetics their liquid minerals withthe primer under will give you like 18+ hours no touch up needed its that good. I swear by it.

    Eating appropriate is the important to fighting off acne. If you eat meals that are quite oily, which have extremely tiny nutritional value, and which are quite processed or artificial, you are filling your body with fats, harmful toxins, and excess sugar.

    yeah bare minerals from sephora is awesome. get the max concealer brush, get some powder on it (its powder but its really creamy so it covers well) and just brush it over your flaws. its totally worth your money!!

    good luck!!
