Mineral Makeup Review: bareMinerals @ Kit Cosmetics.

With a self-confessed aptitude for makeup which is somewhere in the negatives, I made my way to Kit Cosmetics located in the CBD Myer in order to test out the newly relaunched range of bareMinerals makeup. I loved how simple it sounded – just swirl a brush into the mineral makeup lid, tap off the excess and buff it into your skin and you’re on your way to gorgeous. How simple is that? Simple enough that my interest was ignited and I pushed my love for liquid makeup and tinted moisturiser aside for the evening.

My gorgeous makeup artist, complete with 50’s style GHD curls to die for, took me through the application process… primer, mineral foundation in ‘Fairly Light’, mineral veil, a scary shade of bronzer (which turned out to be less scary than it looked), blush and some fantastic eye makeup.

The whole process is fairly simple and it really feels like you aren’t wearing any makeup afterwards! I would suggest having the makeover done to anyone who is curious about mineral makeup, personally I’m undecided as I found it didn’t cover my blemishes as much as I would have liked which is a big factor when I purchase makeup. I will still use it for those days that my skin is a little bit happier with me!

If you are lucky enough not to worry about that, get thee to your nearest Kit Cosmetics and put some bareMinerals on your face!

The Starter Kit costs $84.95 and can be purchased online or in store.

What’s your take on mineral makeup?

Be well,

    I’ve tried quite a few different mineral makeup products but unfortunately they’re just not for me. My skin is far too dry and my skin breaks out, itches and clogs up when I use these. I prefer to stick to liquid foundations to give my skin the moisture it needs.

    Due to my blemishes and dryness as well I tend to find I need a liquid foundation too 🙁

    I pray for the day that my skin is ‘normal’ and I can wear mineral makeup all the time!!! I do like using it to set my liquid tho 🙂 xx

    I can’t seem to make mineral foundation work for me *at all* – I’m pretty sure I have bad technique, but my skin just isn’t into it!

    My skin and I, we like aloe vera as a primer and natural cream foundation on top: it gives long-lasting moisture and coverage like nothing else 🙂 x

    I have no luck with powder foundations because of some pretty deep acne scarring. It just sits in them and itches like crazy! I’ve heard about some liquid mineral foundations that are organic and supposed to be good but haven’t had much luck tracking them down yet 🙁

    You can buy organic liquid mineral foundations from B Kind in Subiaco.

    Thanks for the tip :D:D! x

  7. It seems to divide the masses mineral make-up – I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with it and stick with for a few months to see how my skin progresses. The bique concealer pressed on blemishes covers well BUT does need another application throughout the day as the redness peeks through.
