“It looks great on, and feels wonderful.”
-Excerpt of a review from www.epinions.com
“That’s the beauty of Bare Escentuals, you can be creative and make it suit your personal tastes. I love all their products!”

But there are some drawbacks. A percentage of acne prone people or people with sensitive skin will have problems with Bare Escentuals because it contains Bismuth Oxychloride – an irritant that can worsen breakouts and cause bumpiness or swelling.
Some people also hate the packaging. This is more of a personal preference than anything else.
Some reviews suggest testing out the product instead of just throwing it on for the day as sometimes a little goes too long a way (looking cakey if you don’t apply it correctly), which is actually a good thing for people looking at it economically.
Bare Escentuals is a company that focuses on mineral makeup, an apparently all natural makeup that can serve multiple uses. Originally based in San Francisco, the company has apparently found success with this product and are now present around the world. Their website can be seen at http://www.bareescentuals.com, but you can probably get their stuff at a better price here.
Mineral makeup is usually a powder with a percentage of natural ingredients – in this case, the site claims that theirs has “100% pure bareMinerals” in their makeup. This particular detail is important as some makeup can be classified as mineral if they have so much as 1% of minerals in their “mineral makeup”. The minerals and components involved include titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and bismuth oxychloride.
Varies, depending on the product. A get started kit can cost $60, while their foundation can cost $25.
