it all started with bare escentuals. my makeup obsession, that is. one infomercial, a starter kit under the christmas tree, and i was gone. lost in the world of silky soft brushes, jars of all shapes and sizes, and a hopeless addiction never to be cured. alas, things between BE and i ended rather suddenly, and on a bad note, when i developed a horrible allergic reaction to one of its key ingredients, bismuth oxychloride. as did many other women, i would come to learn. i turned to an expensive substitute which has worked wonders but has never been easy on the wallet.
well, fellow former BE followers rejoice, because CEO leslie blodgett and her team of scientific wizards have found a way to formulate the beloved BE without the dreaded bismuth. the newly introduced bare escentuals matte is made without the chemical which gave the original version its sheen. matte is extra gentle but still includes the skin-loving benefits we come to expect from BE (spf 15, flawless finish thanks to pore minimizing minerals, and protection from environmental damage).
they’ve also improved the packaging to alleviate the frustrations of the open sifter. as all loyal BE fans can attest, the foundation literally takes over you life, ending up all over your makeup bag, drawer, car, you name it. the new “click, lock, go” feature eliminates leaks and spills. so BE is back in a big way and just in the nick of time, as i’ve recently hit bottom with my halo.
will you give new bare escentuals spf15 matte foundation a swirl?
