Beautiful Beginnings with Bare Escentuals

Beautiful Beginnings with Bare Escentuals

What was the first Bare Escentuals product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Bare Escentuals product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  I really hadn’t had much experience with the brand until the past year or so.  The first products I tested were their High Shines, which had fantastic color and payoff but awful packaging.  Next was their skincare (which I guess is technically bareMinerals), which I adore and still adore!  I’ve come to appreciate the brand, and eventually, I’ll try their loose eyeshadows.

My hair is ridiculously long (at least for me) at the moment–about to my waist. It’s thick, heavy, and there’s a lot of it. I don’t dye my hair (haven’t since I was maybe 19 or 20). I don’t really like or dislike it. I wish it was lighter (and I already get it thinned), though.

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: It bums me out to say it, but MAC. They CAN make an excellent eyeshadow, but after trying so many more brands, a lot of their eyeshadows fall flat. There are many that are great, but there are a fair amount of duds, too.
  • Most Underrated: Bare Escentuals Ready is so dense, buttery, and smooth–excellent pigmentation, too–and was a total surprise to me. I’m also a huge fan of Tarina Tarantino’s eyeshadow formula for the same reasons.
