Bare Escentuals
I've been using Bare Escentuals for about 2-1/2 years now. I absolutely LOVE it . I was getting mine through QVC, but there is a beauty store chain called HANS here in So. Cal. and I get it there now. If you have rosacea I would suggest getting the original bisque - it covers a multitude of sins! Then go ahead and finish with the color of foundation that is best for you. It is by far the BEST foundation, blush, eye shadow, etc. I have ever used. And it lasts a LONG time. It is fabulous. They do have a website and you can email questions, etc. and get back an answer. They really are a great company and a great product. It will not irritate your skin. It is all natural minerals from the earth - no oils or preservatives like they put in liquid foundations. Give it a try.

Good luck!

I've used this stuff for almost 6 years. It's some good stuff. I get mine from QVC. I think it's well worth the price, and it's actually the only stuff I've ever used that does what it says it's going to do.

I had some
I tried it for the first time about three years ago. I think the BEST price is when its ordered from their TV INfomercial. Thats how I got my first "set". Then after awhile I ordered extra stuff from QVC. Their prices are great but for just starting out the informercials are the LOWEST price.

Thanks, ladies - I checked out the link and did a search on informercials - think I will give it a try - heaven knows I have spent at least as much on makeup that broke up out terribly that sits in a drawer! UPDATE - I ORDERED!!! EEK I AM EXCITED! I got the starter kit - so it should be a good indicator of whether i like or not!!!

Hi, I use bare escentuals. Love it! My mom has roseaca and loves it too. Hides the reddness well for her.

Anyhow, try the basic bare minerals face powder. I also suggest their bisque for covering up very uneven tones. I like their clear radiance as well. I also like their lip glosses. I use it in some of the eye and cheek colors to create lip colors.

I suggest buying it on QVC. They have good deals where they combine products to make kits. Also, if you have a Sephora near you, you can see it there too.

I B.E. (if you couldn't tell from my being all over that other thread )

My favorite products are the all over face colors. I have bare radiance, rose radiance, glee, warmth, clear radiance, and soft focus true. These can go on as blush, eye color, on the forehead, nose and chin, AND on the lips if you wet the brush and make a paste. With the foundation, any face color, and mineral veil, I can put on my makeup in less than a minute, and look polished and professional--that way I just show up to school late, instead of "late and looking like hell" . :-)

I also reeeeeeeally like the kabuki brush. it's very soft, and it's easier for me to "buff" the color in with this brush instead of the other "flawless application" brush because of the short handle on the kabuki. And I just like the word kabuki.
