L’Oréal Bare Naturale Mineral Foundation
Posted April 24, 2009on:
After Bare Minerals and Revlon, I also tried L’Oréal’s mineral makeup line called, “Bare Naturale”. The line is growing with concealers, eyeshadows and even eyeliner. I tried this mineral foundation for about 2 weeks and I thought it was much better than Revlon’s Colorstay Mineral Makeup.
I used Bare Naturale for about a month (?) and although I didn’t love it completely, I did like it. I bought Bare Naturale in Medium and it blended with my skin pretty well. It lasted longer than Revlon did and it didn’t leave my skin feeling dry or looking real cakey like Bare Minerals did to my skin. The packging is somewhat similar to Revlon’s Colorstay Mineral makeup – but much better. The brush is bigger and the pot isn’t really hollow. I like how its portable, but the brush was a little stiff to me. I thought that the brush could’ve been a bit better. It makes it kind of hard to clean the brush for me since everything’s attached together so I removed everything from its original packaging and placed the makeup in a jar so I could use my own kabuki brush. All in all, I recommend using a primer with this like Smashbox, Bare Vitamins, Avon, etc. This is probably one of the better drugstore mineral makeup brands and I would recommend this to anyone who’s new to mineral makeup.
