bareMinerals stinks!!! I hate it. Now I know why I didn’t like it and it’s not just because I looked pink even though the "expert" matched me "correctly." It’s because doesn’t matter how much product I put into my lid, which brush I get regardless of price, I cannot get any coverage. And the funny part is, I hardly have any scars anymore, yet I am STILL having trouble concealing them. This makeup is a joke.
Furthermore, I was matched with Golden Medium which I thought was a little dark for me. Another person I know also got matched with Golden Medium and she is a NC/C40! How does that work? bareMinerals for ya!
When I told the Sephora girl that the bareMinerals counter girl told me that Light is actually a cool toned/neutral shade (meaning it has pink in it), she looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language. Light is actually yellow toned.
The Sephora girl experimented: She put Golden Medium on one side of my face (using her $40 brush) and put Light on the other side.
- The side I had Light on, looked pink.
- The side I had Golden Medium on, looked good, but it was a shade too dark. She said it looked okay. I believed her...
- I still had NO COVERAGE!
Girls! Forget bareMinerals. There are soo many other mineral makeup brands out on the market that are better and cheaper, with more selection.
I recently bought some sample shades from Everyday Minerals (click to read post).
Product: bareMinerals 8-piece Customizable Get Started Kit: Golden Medium
Shade: Golden Medium
Price: $61 for original $63 for the Matte. I got the Matte.
FYI: I learned today, buffing means to kinda grind it into your skin. make it a part of you so it wont go anywhere.
