YES!! This thread is like a godsend!
Ok I just started a thread that got no responses, and I was kind of figuring it wouldn’t. It’s all about Bare Minerals and their new READY collection. Here was my original post in that thread:
Just a few questions about the new Bare Minerals Ready makeup. I already have the new Stroke of Light and Well-Rested, and I’m going to the boutique tomorrow morning to pick up some Correcting Concealer, Ready Foundation and a new Precision Face Brush for the foundation application.
a) Do I need to buy a new concealer brush for the Correcting Concealer? I already have the regular Bare Minerals concealer brush that came with the Starter Kit from years ago.
b) Can I use the same brush to put it on and blend it out or should I get a separate brush for that?
2. Even though my concealer and foundation will be from the READY collection, can I still use my regular loose powder bronzer, blush and mineral veil? I am hesitant to take the opinion of the salespeople as I’m sure they will of course tell me to buy new READY collection bronzer, blush and mineral veil. However, I really don’t want to do that if it is not necessary – only if the loose powder will somehow clash or not wear well with the new foundation.
3. Does Bare Minerals have any good nose contouring products? So far I don’t really have anything that works great as a nose contour, and if Bare Minerals has one I would love to hear any opinions or recommendations.
Thanks for any and all help!
Basically when I go in there tomorrow, you never know if you’re going to speak to an employee who will just genuinely educate you about the products or one who will try to just sell, sell, sell so I want to make sure I am armed with a little more information than I currently have. My biggest question is #2 since that would require buying three more actual products, whereas with #1 that just requires buying a new brush or two (and I love brushes so that would be ok with me).
The third question, I really just need some good product recommendations for nose countouring. I would love if it came from Bare Minerals because that’s where I buy all my makeup mostly, but anything I can buy in a drugstore works too (Sephora is no good since I have banned myself from that store for obvious reasons that I can’t buy an entire store every time I set foot in it – if I can get it on Amazon though that’s awesome). I’ve just been having a problem where everything I use is too orange or just plain the wrong color. I have been using Mac’s Harmony matte blush as a cheek and nose contour, and I’m just not sure how I feel about it. Any thoughts on that blush for those two purposes?
Thanks so much!!!
