bareMinerals bareSkin Foundation Review




@bareminerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation #review #beauty #makeup

The bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation appears to be a love it or hate it type of product.

The multi-tasking formula contains:   Read more

Now it comes in a liquid form–bareMinerals Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener ($22). This is excellent news for us over 40 women who prefer a liquid that won’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles.

The two products are very different though. Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener is a  lightweight luminizer for use under eyes in a new cream formulation.
