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

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.
