My Thoughts
The brand plays/caters to those who prefer a simpler, natural look. They put loose mineral foundation on the map and that is immediately what I think of when I think of BareMinerals. Their shade range is vast in number, but allllll of the shades lean yellow, even if it says cool, I assure it’s not. I appreciate that they make brush, bronzer, and highlighter for fair skin people. Their Invisible Bronzer (discontinued) is one of the first bronzers that I was actually able to use on my fair skin. If you prefer trendier, full coverage, glam looks, this isn’t necessarily the brand for you. Their products are perfect for the everyday gal/guy who just wants to apply a little something to look pulled together.
