Honest reviews


Trial Size

So, my experience with Bare Minerals is this: less is ALWAYS more. So while their products can be pricey at times, they are meant to last a long time. I wanted to try out the primer without splurging for the entire bottle. When this arrives, it looks TINY, but since all you need is a pea-sized drop, this little bottle actually lasts a long time. I ended up ordering another one for travel purposes. One tiny drop smooths over your skin VERY nicely, and has no scent or greasy feel too it. You will need to allow about 5-10 minutes to let it dry completely before starting with the rest of your make-up routine. It will help your make-up glide on, and give it a nice natural finish once it sets. It also helps seal in the moisture that comes from Bare Minerals.

No help

It didn’t help bare minerals pressed powder foundation to go on smoothly at all. My Clinique lotion worked about as well. Back it went. Not a fan of bare minerals anymore, except for lip glosses.

Really makes your face smooth

Makeup applies so easily on top of this. I was also concerned about the ingredients —too good to be true? Nope. I checked with the Environmental Working Group and the ingredients scored very well! Only downside—pretty expensive considering the size,

Not for me…

Even with this primer mineral makeup doesn’t work for me. It still looks chalky and unnatural.I prefer to go as natural as possible.

Very good primer for mineral makeup

Very happy with this product. It feels like putting silk on your face and is a good primer before applying mineral makeup.Fast service. Packing was good. Would recommend to others.
