I was skeptical at first. When the Bare Minerals (essentials) craze came out, I tried it and it just wasn't for me. My skin always felt "dry", I'm not sure, just weird. And I have always used either tinted moisturizer or a powder for my "base". I never could get used to using liquid foundation, it just felt funny on me. But trust me, I NEED some coverage. Especially when I don't have a tan. And I'm starting to get some small
So I was apprehensive, but I took my cousins advice and jumped in feet first. I ordered the Everyday Minerals makeup, concealer, bronzer (and a lucent one for a lil shine) and eye shadows. I LOVE them! The "make up" feels like your wearing NOTHING and it covers wonderfully. You actually control the coverage. The concealer is powder as well and it covers fantastic! I ordered two full size eye shadows but ordered the collection "Utopia blooms" which has MANY (I forget exactly how many) eye shadows in the "try me" size. The try me size is going to last a LONG time. And they are CHEAP. The try me size is &2.50 and I think the regular size is $8.
I also ordered some of the brushes and really like them! I was hesitant because they aren't natural bristle but they feel like silk!
Oh and here is the kicker! Everyday Minerals products are..........
Another long-time favorite of mine is Lash Out mascara by Loreal. But I have used Voluminous and the newer True match Naturals and love these as well.
Well anyway, I thought I'd give you my review, for what it's worth! Love me some make up! :)
