In the past I use to be really active on Influenster.com and I decided to go check them out again. I got accepted into a new voxbox pretty quick and got to try a new product from bareMinerals. I'm going to do my best to give a detailed and coherent review! So continue reading to see what I thought of it!
Makeup that actually helps your skin??right here!
As someone with extremely dry skin I actively avoid anything with the word "matte" in it, around it, near it. I've never had a good experience with matte products. This product however didn't give me the usual matte feeling. Their website does state that it's non-drying so this makes sense. To be honest on the first application I found the product to be a little in the oily range. However, once patted out and blended in, it had a nice "pillowy" soft look and feel to it.
The concealer glides on smoothly and the pen offers a nice and precise application. I've had very minimal experience with concealers, but I found this easy and refreshing to use. I don't break out often, so I'm not sure how often I'll be using it, but at the moment I do have a dark spot on my cheek from a pimple I picked at(I know, HUGE mistake).
The final verdict!!
As someone who sweats a lot on my face I'm worried the oiliness of this product could be a problem. I definitely recommend a setting spray if you have this same product or wear it out during the spring/summer! You get a nice amount of product and I do find it pretty useful, so the $22 price is not terrible, but I think it could sell for a lower price $17/$18 would be great, $15/$16 would be perfect! The product has a great wear time and blends into skin perfectly. I would recommend trying it out if you're new or experienced with concealer. It can be a great starter item or even a great new product to add to your current line up!
I decided to give the product a 4 out of 5 stars. Simply, because I think the price is a bit much and could be lowered. The item is also not as full-coverage as they would lead you to believe. After applying it and patting it out I could still see the mole on my hand and had to apply it two more times to get adequate coverage. Other than that it's a good product I'm okay with.
