I've been a devoted user of Bare Minerals for 6 years, ever since a MUA used it for my wedding make-up. I loved the coverage and how my skin felt when it was on, plus I found it easy to apply. I've got tonnes of the stuff - primer, BB primer cream, powder foundation, mineral veil, warmer, blush x3, all-over face colour x2, eyeshadow pallette.
Since having a baby 16 months ago, it doesn't seem to work well for me anymore. At first, it just emphasised dry patches and almost flaked off. If i rubbed my face, it kind of rubbed off in lumps. I had a consultation and decided to try the Blemish Remedy version of the foundation. It is slightly better but I don't feel it gives me the coverage I'm looking for without re-applying it all day. I always use primer and mineral veil.
So. Is there a good alternative that I could use that would also work with all the other products I have? I can't justify replacing ALL my make-up and I do think it's just the foundation that's the problem.
I previously hated liquid foundations but will give anything a go.
Redglitter - thank you. Is it just as easy to apply? And do you use other BM products with it?
Bambinho - I've tried a few. I've just got a new serum so will see if that makes much difference. I had a tester of the BM Vital Power Infusion which was lovely, but I couldn't stretch to £45 for it while on mat leave!
I switched to Pur at Marks and Spencers as an alternative to BM. Their tinted moisturiser is really good. It seems a very similar range to BM and a little cheaper. Have you tried a good exfoliator facial brush?
