Skin Care Review: bare escentuals mineral makeup

by Karen, cerritos, CA USA


covers redness, gives lighter skin, creamy powdery foundation, mutiple colors.

does not cover dark circle, irritation, bismuth oxychloride is added in powder.

I bought this product from sephora, it contains bare escentuals mineral veil, foundations 1.2 and 2, warmth and 3 brushes. I bought it becase the sales told me this product is so safe, you could even sleep with it. I was very suprise and after sephora sales applied to my skin, it turns out like a magic.. my radish cheek was gone. I was very excited with " natural'" mineral make up, sephora sales says it is pure and actually good for any sensitive skins. However.. I felt my dark circle does not covered well, and the fine lines under my eyes look oviously.. .. I bought it and i decided to try it and wish this is better than any other foundations and compacts i had before.but after serval hours i put it on, it turns out itchy for me.I felt unsafe so i went online and check what is " mineral" makeup, and other comments from internet. I found out they did added bismuth oxychloride in their powder, and it could give you irritations. since I bought bare escentuals Makeup from a far away city and i lost my reciept.. -.-" so i cannot return it to sephora.. I continuely using it.. it was very strange that the itchy feeling is not strong as before after the 4th times I apply on my skin. it doesn't have any break out and my rosacea (not sure if i spell it right..) is not obious as before.. It gives me a BIG QUESTION... I seriously don't know why it contains bismuth oxychloride but my rosacea is not obvious anymore.I had rosacea since 8 years ago. I always tried to cure but everyone know there is no way to cure except you do the surgery.. i think make up works differently for everyone.. i only use bare escentuals Makeup for 1 month.. maybe it will turns out different again later.. howeever.. even tho it doesn't gives me any break out or irritation... i guess i wont buy it again.. i am scared i might have irritation later.....(o.o*)

some limitations of what it conceals; may irritate skin
