I've been a diehard Mac studio fix user for a number of years but have started to switch to a more natural look and focus on healthy skin vs hefty coverage. My oldest daughter plays travel softball and four months a year I have the option to wear no make up at all (not my thing) or have my make up melt down my face in the 90-100 degree weather. Like everyone else, the bare minerals hype intrigued me. I finally splurged and grabbed the get started kit in medium beige (blonde hair and skin variations of light tan to really tan throughout the year). Glad I did! I'm confident this is the answer to my softball dilemma! I've used the kit multiple ways for different looks and this is what I've found: it feels feather light on your skin. The color blends flawlessly. I can darken it up with Warmth or leave it totally natural bare with just the foundation depending on the look I'm going for. Paired with a BB cream and a dab of concealer under eyes it gives the total full coverage of actual foundation and powder! I lightly buff with the original before the gym and it stays relatively well for as much as I sweat and I don't look like the weirdo with full make up at the gym - just a girl with pretty,' even skin tone lol. My combination/oily skin is so much more manageable as the foundation powder and mineral veil seem to magically evaporate oil. I've slept in it a few times- no problems, no breakouts. It stays put HOURS longer than Mac Studio Fix on my oily skin without touch ups. I'm truly impressed! Only complaint: doesn't hide my fine lines. It doesn't settle in them and exaggerate them but it doesn't do a lot to blur them. More of a reason to focus on getting healthy skin instead of just masking it! I will go through the foundation quickly because I'll use everyday but the warmth and blush I purchased separately are so pigmented that I won't have to buy more for a year! Can't wait to try the other products in this line!
