Just do it

Stuff is amazing. It cleared my skin and not only was it good for my face but my eye area......for my eye shadow. I like how I can also use it without the other bare and mineral products. If I want to just wash and dry my face & not be too fancy I usually put this on only and it does enough. Helps my face no become oily

Pulling the Veil Over Your Eyes

I have a good friend who LOVES everything Bare Escentuals. Maybe it's because I have oily/combination skin that's acne prone, but for a powder to be able to even out my skin tone while covering my imperfections- is shooting for the moon. I bought one of those handy travel sized version of Mineral Veil's twist and brush on guys (an impulse buy while waiting in line at Sephora), which is nice to have in my purse when I look like a hot mess leaving work. But, I don't use it. Bare Escentuals uses talc in their products, which is a no bueno for your skin in a big way. After a bit of reasoning and a chat with my friend in Sephora before she dove into another powdery purchase of the stuff, I came up with a pretty bold yet well placed conclusion about the stuff: Bare Escentuals became a big hit during the time when going green was an up-and-coming big thing as far as marketing strategies go. So, making a powder based, everything else free, product line would naturally be a big hit. Yeah, no parabens, etc. but it's not the best stuff out there if you're trying to go au natural/ mineral powder.

That may have sounded a bit harsh, but whatevz. Talc is a big deal, have a google on it and you're see what I mean. Or ask any sales rep. at Sephora or MAC, or where you go. A better mineral powder that actually does the job without talc? Korres Mineral Powder.
