My experience with Bare Minerals

After I heard that they have revamped the formula of this product, I just had to run out and grab the starter kit. The starter kit came with a foundation, an all over face color in warmth, a mineral viel, a barevitamins skin rever upper and two brushes. I also picked up the primer. While I was at Ulta, the makeup at the counter used all the products on my face and showed me how to use each one. She also matched my skin to the correct foundation shade. I absolutely loved the effect! My husband also noted that I looked very fresh and glowing when I got home! He normally doesn`t notice differences in my makeup so that was something huge for me.

I used this foundation for about a month and absolutely loved the finish of it. I looked and felt like I was wearing nothing! However, I started noticing my face breaking out like crazy. I have very normal skin and may get a pimple here and there, but with this I had a face full of them. It was unbelieveable. I was so disappointed. I know that it was the foundation because I stopped using this about a week ago and now my face has completely cleared up. Its just disappointing because I loved this stuff so much.

After thoroughly reviewing the product, I found out that it contains bismuth oxycholoride which is a known skin irritant. Obviously, it was irritating to my skin. I know a lot of people have different experiences with it, like a friend of mine, her skin doesn`t break out at all with this.

Honestly, I`m not sure if I would reccomend this. The coverage is great, the products look beautiful, but you never know if it`s going to cause acne. And the break outs aren`t small. They left acne scars and I never picked at them or anything:(

Have you tried this? Did it break you out? Do you know of any products that give a similar finish without bismuth?
