Although mineral make-up has been around for some time now, it’s never been a product that I have been keen to try.  I never have been totally convinced by all the infomercials on the tv about its coverage and staying power, and I always worried it would leave a powdery finish.

So when I received the Bare Minerals Original Foundation as a Christmas gift last year, I was sceptical to say the least.  But if I was to sum this product up in one word, it would have to be “wow”; and “wow” if a product was ever to prove me wrong about using mineral foundation, then this was the one!

Bare Minerals Original Foundation looks like a powder, but once applied to your skin it transforms into a creamy texture.  What I really loved most about this product was that allowed my skin to retain a natural look, and it gave the appearance of naturally perfect skin!  After the Christmas period, with all the associated overindulgence, my skin was not in great condition.  I had developed a few blemishes and my skin tone was uneven to say the least. When I first used this foundation it covered all those imperfections perfectly!
It was so quick and easy to apply – using only a little product goes a long way, and because you will find you don’t need to use too much, it further contributes to the natural look.

Combined with the Bare Minerals Beautiful Finish Brush, the two work together perfectly to give a smooth, airbrushed finish.

Bare Minerals claims that this foundation is proven to improve the appearance of your skin over time and that it’s make-up so pure you can sleep in it!  I don’t know yet how true this is, but I love wearing a foundation that makes my skin look so amazing, and should I have one of those late nights where all I want to do is go straight to bed with my make-up on, I won’t feel so guilty!!

Used in shade Medium
My skin is Fair, but this shade was still relatively light with a slight glow.
