I strayed . . . And paid
I'm talking about makeup here, so don't get ahead of yourself. I have been using Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals for over ten years. I was introduced to it by my then boyfriend, now husband's aunt, who was a big player in the great company. I have been a faithful user over all these years and have always loved how it felt, how it covered, and the natural aspect of it. My one complaint has always been the lasting factor. I would apply it and catch a glimpse of myself an hour later and wonder if I ever put it on to begin with. This has almost always been the case for me for eye shadows, blush, etc. Not sure what it is about my skin. I even have tried primers to no avail. So when I ran out a couple weeks ago, and while deciding what makeup direction to take next, I picked up a thing of Maybelline's Dream Matte Mouse at Target, thinking maybe a liquid would last longer on my skin. And while the coverage and lasting power is great, my face has completely broken out. I always knew that Bare Minerals is so natural and gentle that you can sleep in it, but never really realized how kind it has been to my skin until I strayed. Sorry BE, now I know that natural is best. Now if I can just get some tips to get the fresh face look all day and I'll never think about straying again. Any ideas?
