Two years ago I was in the search of a good mineral makeup brand. I was stopped in the mall by a saleslady of Bella Terra who begged me to try it on. I caved, and she did a face makeover for me. And was I shocked!!! The foundation is just AMAZING! It works as a foundation, concealer, highlighter. I love it! Yes it is a bit pricey, but I have had 2 refills in 2 years, it DOES last a year! And you only need a little bit each time! I am allergic to alot of other cosmetic brands, and I can tell you, I would be so lost without this brand. Bare Minerals still made my skin feel dry and pastey even after applying moisturizer and primer. I have very dry skin, and I still can use this foundation with just moisturizer, without even a primer! You gotta try the foundation and even the eyeshadows! The pigments are sooo rich, I dont think I can ever go back to regular eyeshadow. Love love love!
