Bare Minerals

First of all, for all of you that know me, you know I love the Bare Minerals collection. I've successfully been able to convert a few friends into using it, and they are now all obsessed. Score!

A few days ago I made a trip to Sephora and found this new little gem:

Mineral Veil Mini Refillable Buffing Brush

I'm in LOVE. First of all, the mineral veil product is a wonder worker. It is a clear powder that is brushed on to your face after you apply your makeup. It gives you a finished, air-brushed look and it even feels good going on. This new little to-go packaging is awesome! It is refillable and can be kept in your purse when you need a little freshening up to do :) It is $26 at Sephora stores, and the fact that it can be refilled constantly makes this piece a must for everyone, it will last forever.


  1. O My Gosh Christie....that will be great for work!

  2. Bare Minerals? I really have been thinking about buying some new makeup.. I have always just used stuff at Walgreen's.. you know Revelon, Maybelline and such. I was thinking maybe to try MAC...I know good makeup is expensive, but it is probably worth it!

  3. Brianna-
    Hi! I actually have some good suggestions for makeup. Bare Minerals is my #1. You can buy the started kit at Sephora .... and the best thing about it is that it lasts forever. One pot of foundation color will last you 6 months or more depending on how much you use it. For liquid foundation, I suggest Sally Hansen's new Natural Beauty line. It is made my Carminde (from TLC's what not to wear) and is amazing. The liquid foundation just melts into your face and blends so well. You can find it at select CVS and Rite Aids :)
    Mac is great for eyeshadows and some makeup-prep, but I wouldn't recommend their foundation. It is very thick and cakey and can make you break out a lot more easily if you don't take it off properly.

    Hope that helps :)

  4. Thanks for the tips!! What about eyeliner? And a concealer? I really need a good concealer. :)

  5. Between Bobbi Brown and BM and my Clinique face cleanser I'm a happy girl in the mornings. This is awesome! I will have to run over and grab some.
