prefer Neutrogena mineral shears

By Holicorn

from SNJ

Comments about bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

ok, so I got a bare minerals gift set for Christmas and was totally excited to try it... I love the primer... that's it. when I apply the bare minerals I feel like it looks dry and flakey. I personally would rather use the Neutrogena Mineral Shears which never looks flakey on my skin.

Comments about bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

I love Bare Minerals make up. Since I started using Bare Minerals, I have fewer breakouts. It provides excellent coverage without feeling like I have a ton of makeup caked on my face. I just began using Prime Time foundation primer, which I really like as well. It prevents my face from developing a greasy or oily look throughout the day.

      Comments about bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

      I love this kit. Fair price too. Colors are amazing and my skin looks so radiant when I wear them. My only complaint is I feel like the foundation containers are smaller than they used to be? A little does go a long way though so I know it'll last me a bit, just a little bummed out with the size, but overall I love it!

      Really like the product. I don't feel like it covers blemishes very well without applying alot to the trouble areas. I will be trying the concealer. I feel like I'm not wearing makeup when I have it on and looks very natural.

        Comments about bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

        I bought this as my first Bare Minerals purchase. When you get this kit, you get to experiment with both the Original and the Matte formula for about a month. After playing around with both, I now see that I will be buying the full size Matte when I run out. The ladies at Ulta told me that the Matte formula is darker than the original, and this is true. If you do not have a foundation brush, the one that comes with this kit is fine. It does shed though, and I don't like that the brush is flat, so I bought a Real Techniques brush.

        Comments about bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

        I am not very good with picking out makeup and decided to switch to this and it was the best decision. It is easy to apply although a little time consuming because you have to create thin layers for it to work best, the more layers depends on the coverage you like.

              This set includes a Mini Prime Time Foundation Primer, which when applied underneath your foundation helps to minimize pores, fine lines, and other imperfections, as well as Mineral Veil, a skin perfecting finishing powder which further helps to minimize the appearance of pores. Be sure to use these two products with your foundation, and you'll see flawless results!
