I love Mary Kay powder foundation because it’s light, it looks natural and if I use enough I can get good coverage from it. I go through it faster than most people because I have to use so much to cover blemishes, and because it's powder it tends to get on everything when I’m applying it. But I’ve been very much in love with it for about a year now.
I’ve been up at 3 a.m. and seen Bare Escentuals commercials, of course. I wondered if that foundation could possibly be as good as they say (better than mine??), but never wanted to fork out the money for it. (To clarify for those confused- it seems that Bare Escentuals is the company, Bare Minerals the product. Same thing though.)
Last week I was on Amazon, looking at buying a new pack of Mary Kay makeup on the cheap (I skip the saleswoman, go straight for those trying to unload- I’m bad) and realized the same system could be exploited for Bare Escentuals. Voila- I got a powder foundation and mineral veil for less than $20 including shipping. The prices seem to vary day by day- I got the foundation for $7.99 and the veil for $1.99.
