bare minerals gel foundation review via besotted blog

For someone that never leaves their zipcode I sure do go through an awful lot of foundation.  I am kind of on an endless quest for a beautiful, light (but nice coverage) foundation that is easy to apply, doesn’t feel like I am wearing anything, is hydrating, has sunscreen and actually matches my skintone fairly flawlessly.  Is that way too much to ask?  I have hyper-pigmentation on my cheeks so I definitely want the coverage, but I honestly don’t feel like I have the time anymore to invest in concealer. The other day when I went to Sephora to pick up some of my favorite Laura Mercier mineral foundation I was sorely disappointed to see that it was no longer carried, since I only get to Sephora about once a year now, I seriously wanted to get something!  I went to the BareMinrals section and saw an interesting new product called BareMinerals Complexion Rescue tinted hydrating gel (mouthful!), I was intrigued, was color matched and took it home.

I have been using it about a week now and I am totally in love with it! Yes, you can get buildable coverage, it’s super easy to apply even if you are trying to keep one eye on the mirror and the other on your toddler who insists on trying to do something dangerous while you are trying to not scare the neighborhood with a naked visage.It is a gel, so at first I thought it may be sticky but it dries super fast. The con here being a gel is there is a sheen, in my mind I thought ‘glow’ my husband asked what was wrong with my face, so I have been using the BareMinerals veil powder, it is feather light and I haven’t heard nary a comment from him since (that’s a good thing because he likes it when I ‘don’t wear any makeup’). The best part for me is it lasts ALL day, I can’t remember the last time I put on a foundation that lasted all day. I am duly impressed!  It’s worth a try, sunscreen is 30, and if you get it at Sephora they have an awesome return policy if it doesn’t work for you!
