A couple of years ago I fell in love with Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals foundation.  So easy to apply and so flawless!  I bought the Get Started Kit - Flawless Complexion Essentials Kit and got to work.  It was amazing.  The kit was a little on the expensive side, but expensive means good right?

In the kit you get the following:

  • Bare Minerals11 Complexion Enhancer, Concealer or BareMinerals Prime Time
  • 1 Concealer or Brightener

  • 1 Mineral Veil finishing powder (2g / 0.07oz)

So I have recently discovered I have a slight addiction to Benefit Cosmetics... On a recent trip back home to the UK I splurged on Benefit products that I "really really needed"...  I also had a makeup tutorial in their Covent Garden boutique which was super fun.  Needless to say, I have quite a few Benefit reviews coming your way, starting with the product that was being overly advertised in every cosmetic shop on Oxford Street...the they're real! push-up liner. ...continue reading
