I get asked a lot about Bare Escentuals. I think it’s because this San Francisco-based company has been around for a while and there’s a lot of marketing around it.
I myself have not had great experience with it. You have to blend the foundation to make your own colour and that’s a process that I find kind of tedious. When I tried to match a colour to my skin, I couldn’t get anything perfect and I thought that was a shame considering that there are tons of lines out there that make foundation my colour and I don’t see myself as hard to match (and regular readers should know – I’ve reviewed and tried tons of foundations and the only way that I can really try them is if I can wear them for atleast a week and for me to do that, I have to find a foundation in my colour).
I do like the Bare Escentuals blotting powder. It works and it’s pretty sheer.
If you can find a Bare Escentuals foundation in your colour, then great, try it out, but don’t look to me – I can’t endorse it.
