Bare Minerals Reviews
Bare minerals is the most popular brand in mineral cosmetics. Bare Minerals Foundation is by far the most widely-used and best-selling mineral powder foundations.
User Profile: Kim, age range of 25-34, combination skin type, with acne-prone and sensitive skin
Item Used: Bare Minerals Foundation, Medium Beige Shade
Kim has been using Bare Essentials for 3 and a half years, and she thinks it is the best makeup that set foot on Earth. She has an oily skin so all the rest of the makeups she has tried slide right off every 2 hours. When she was in her mid-twenties, she had the worst breakouts of her life, but Bare Essentials helped control them. The coverage feels great and is very light. It lasts her all day and doesn’t smudge on to her clothes. She observed that it holds up well even in hot and humid weather. She recommends it to anyone who hates makeup heavy feel and those with skin problems.
User Profile: J P from New Jersey
Item Used: Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
JP has been using Mineral Veil along with other Bare Essential products for more than five years. She particularly loves the natural and light feel of all of these cosmetics. She says that you will definitely get all your money’s worth as they all last long – averaging about 2 to 3 months of daily use. It also blends over her foundation, and is also great applied on its own. She also recommends the use of a good quality brush to achieve desired blending and effects.
Sheer Cover Mineral Makeup Review
Here is a mineral makeup review on Sheer Cover, the second most popular mineral makeup product brand.
User Profile: Doris, aged 35-44, combination type skin, with issues on fine lines, wrinkles and acne
Item Used: Sheer Cover Mineral Makeup, Medium (Latte and Almond shade)
Feedback: Doris has been seeing infomercials on Sheer Cover for years. She has always wanted to try it, but didn’t do so until a month ago. She finally order the trial kit good for medium skin tones. It was not a close match, but she still tried it. She used to put a lot of makeup on her face to cover up all her breakouts, scars and blemishes. She ended up creating some more, so she decided to stop and regain control over her not-so-perfect skin. However, when she started using Sheer Cover, she said that she felt like a teenager again. She was finally experiencing the wonder of makeup. She loved the coverage, the way it protects her from the sun, and the colors that were part of her kit. She never knew she would feel that great through makeup. She ordered a new customized kit that matches her color and couldn’t wait to have her hands on it.
L’Oreal Mineral Makeup Reviews
L’Oreal has also jumped right into the bandwagon and introduced mineral makeup. Here is what a new user has to say:
“I read about L’Oreal’s new mineral product and bought it last week. This was actually my first experience in mineral makeup. I have been using MAC Studio Fix for a long time, but the cost, the availability (no stores within 100 miles!) and the coverage set me looking for something else. My skin tans easily so I decided it was not practical to purchase a new shade each time it darkens. I so love L’Oreal’s Bare Naturale, it is dirt cheap costing only $9, and I easily found a color to match me. It lasted me throughout the day and even towards the next day when I accidentally feel asleep without washing my face. It does not feel greasy or thick and it seems to soak down oily patches too. I will definitely buy one again!”

On PurePressed Base Warm Tones – “This powder is really the best! I have used it and it has light and soft finish, but gives great coverage too! It is a mineral base makeup which is talc free so it is good for my sensitive skin. It does not clog my pores and cause breakouts. I even feel like I am not wearing any makeup at all!” – Amber, 26 years old.
On Amazing Base SPF 20 Warm Tones – “This product is rightly named; it is truly amazing. This is very easy to apply and subtly transforms my skin in a very natural way. This is one of the best loose powders that I have ever used!” – NT, 32 years old.
