I have used Bare Escentuals mineral makeup for about a year now and I love it!! It doesn't clog my pores and cause break-outs like alot of other liquid makeups do. It is also age-defying which is great since I just turned 40, but being a mom of three teenage boys I wish it wasn't so expensive. A little of the makeup goes a long way so that is good. It also comes with a finishing veil which gives you an air-brushed look and covers pores and helps with oil throughout the day. It is long-wearing and natural looking as it comes in many shades sure to match your skintone. You can also mix them to customize a shade just for you. You can also purchase eyeshadows, liners, blushes, lipsticks, etc to complete your look. This makeup is a wonderful product and I would reccomend it to anyone. I just wish I would have started using it sooner than I did but I was afraid the coverage would be too shear but it's perfect!!
