I didn't start out to collect diamonds, but somehow they just kept piling up.-Mae West
Well, I went to the boutique today to check them out, found out they didn't carry the starter kit in store with my foundation shade (but the bigger, $15 cheaper online one does). So, I took all the info about the shades she used on me that I loved home with me and just dropped roughly $130 on Bare Escentuals stuff (well, 95 now, another 30 next month). I bought the $60 kit from the website, and then bought the concealer, blush, and 2 extra brushes on Ebay (Ebay is the best thing ever, I only spent $50 for those 4 things, woulda been at least $80 at the store). I really do love the stuff, I thought I looked really fabulous afterwards, I can't wait to get my makeup
I think this thread is making a convert out of me. I had a chance to buy the starter kit for $60 and didn't do it, so now I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and pay more. The Alima stuff SVZ mentioned sounds good, too.
PB, be careful if you have sensitive skin though, since BE has that Bismuth Oxychloride that SVC mentioned. Maybe try one of the others that SVC talked about. (I have been using Laremin, but have ordered some samples of Alima.)
My skin isn't overly sensitive, but I do have mild rosacea and wouldn't want to irritate it. Thanks.
Got all my stuff today and I love it. I've already got my eye on some eye stuff.
I just wanted to post these. This is my first attempt at doing the makeup. On the eyes I just did a kit of browns, nothing fun and exciting yet, I was just getting used to the blending.
Before (breakout and all...)
You look like you're a pro already! It doesn't even look like you have m/u on! Great job! What a cutie.
Meryl doesn't even try anymore. She just calls Lanvin and asks for curtains with a belt.~Bitter
Can we interest you in Leann Rimes? She has a nice little cadre of fans you'd probably enjoy.~ Pecan Pie
I really prefer my makeup on my face to look very natural, sometimes I'll go wild with the eyes though. The flash on the camera kind of muted some of it though, I'm wearing a bit of blush, but it either isn't as much as I thought I put on or it didn't show up well in the picture.
I got my starter kit two weeks ago, and I love my new makeup. It covers up the rosacea and evens up my skin tone. I only buff one time, because I don't like to feel like my make up is caked on. Plus, I want to make the foundations last as long as possible.
My only complaint is that the Mineral Veil itches when I get hot. But aside from that, the Mineral Veil is a great product because it covers up my oily spots and I only have to touch up once, no more than twice a day. When I used my MAC Blot powder, I probably touched up 3 or 4 times a day.
^^I'm sold. I'm going to get some. If it works for rosacea, I'm in.
I love mine too. I am only using the warmth right now though. I have Jergens self tan stuff for my face. When I brush on a little of the warmth over my cheecks, nose and forehead I look like I just spent a day at the beach. No one would ever guess that I'm pale as hell underneath. I'm a sunscreen freak, but I don't want to look like a ghost.
Wow, No Day, that's very impressive. I'm sold too. Your skin looks flawless.
