There's a QVC Todays Special Value coming up (IIRC Saturday) which means I can try it out and if I don't like it , send it back (within the 30 days)
will I like it? I don't wear any base (too lazy) skin is ok so no issues WRT to coverage.
How easy is it to get a good colour-match.? I have seen BM in shops and the range of colour is huge. There seems to be a 'medium beige suits most' kind of philosophy (unless you are very pale or olive-dark). So I could go to a store for a look before and see what suits me.
Anyone experience sensitivities or allergies? And how essential is it to use their brush? Would any old brush do, or is theirs special/
What about the blusher? Eyecolours? Primer? Mineral veil?
I use BM and LilyLolo. I've never been much of a foundation wearer so it's suited me. It is a bit of a faff getting used to the application though and it can be messy! A kabuki brush is good for applying the foundation but a big blusher brussh would work too. I use almost exclusively mineral make up now. I've built up my collection from neutrals to evening makeup. I started with: Foundation Powder [mineral veil type] Eyeshadows x 3 - cream, light brown, dark brown blusher
I think it helps if you've got good skin, but you can control the coverage with how much powder you use.
i use their foundation as mineral based make up is recommended for people that have had electrolysis. I love it and have never looked back (used Clinique super balanced before). I had a colour match done in store in Bluewater which I booked an appt for, took about 30 mins and they took off what I had on and re-applied the BM one.
70 I've used BM for years but you really need to get your colour matched at a counter, there are so many shades and I was wearing the wrong one for a while (I just got any old light one). Once I had the correct shade it has made a big difference.
