Quick, Easy and Flawless - BareMinerals SPF15 Foundation

I have managed to stumble across this product which offers a quick, easy and flawless finish to your face. This product has been hyped up in the beauty world, but not as much as I would have thought given the amazing results I achieved when using it.
This may come as a surprise if you have read my blog post a while back about "The best BB cream ever". I swore by this BB cream and this BB cream only, for at least 5 years. I used nothing else on my face.

This product really surprised me. Even though I had heard so many good reviews about how it gives you a flawless finish, gives you smoother skin and minimises pores... I still wasn't fully convinced. Recently, I was in one of their shops in London and I was persuaded and given a small sample pot of the mineral foundation along with a little brush to apply it with to try. It was sitting at the bottom of my bag for a while I admit... But I must have felt unusually brave and adventurous the day I decided to give it a go. So here are my thoughts....

You only need a tiny bit of powder on the brush to get a medium coverage. I poured a little bit of the mineral powder (colour in fairly light) into the lid and dabbed the brush into it and tapped off the excess. I am not kidding when I say it erases away the imperfections and discolouration on your skin! The more you buff the powder in, the more coverage you seem to achieve. It takes minutes to achieve a flawless face with minimal effort. I don't even need to apply concealer afterwards. Just a little bit under the eyes and you are good to go. This is perfect if you prefer to get an extra 20 minutes of sleep than spend that time applying makeup before work!

The only downside I have found with this is that the coverage doesn't last all day, however this can be fixed if you prep your skin with a good primer first. I am definitely going to buy the full size now before the sample pot runs out... I have used it for about 2 weeks now so definitely go and ask for a sample if you are skeptical like me!
