Beauty Review: Bare Minerals Original Foundation

Hello everyone! I'm sorry for the lack of posts. I've been so swamped with work. 60-hour week at the office has really taken its toll on me, and it's gonna get worse for the next few weeks as the tax season has now officially started. Working life has been really tiring yet exhilarating at the same time. I am insomnia no more. No more late nights and late days. I sleep and start my day early every day, which I am now starting to get used to it. 

I haven't been trying on new products lately, but I do want to bring you a beauty product that I feel is worth the time to be written a review for. 
If you remember from my old post, I purchased this Bare Minerals Try. Believe. Love kit in medium beige from Ulta a while back.

 I bought it simply because it had the mini version of multi-tasking powder bisque that Emily mentioned it in her Full Coverage Concealer Trick video. She raved about how this thing is able to level up the coverage of even your least favorite concealer. 

I've tried it, and I've got to say I don't think it works at all that wonders as she talked about. It does give you a little bit more coverage, but it does fade throughout the day. But in the starter kit, I'm introduced to Bare Minerals Foundation. I haven't given it much love for quite a while until I watched Tanya aka pixi2woo's video using the product. Then I got back to it and tried it out more in depth for myself. I've got to say guys, this baby has really given new meaning to powder foundation.

Although it's in powder form, it doesn't disappear as you buff it on your face. The thick formulation allows the product to build up on your face and gives great coverage and nice finish. What I usually do is using my Real Technique Buffing brush, I tap the brush on the powder and buff it on my face in swirling motion. I love this brush for the application because it's not too dense like Sigma kabuki brush is so it allows the loose product to be spread nicely on your face. It is really noticable how the powder foundation evens out my skin tone as I'm done buffing. 

The staying power is as awesome as the coverage! I wore it throughout the day and after several hours I could still see the product still held up really well. One more great thing about this is because it's a foundation in loose powder form, it gives you coverage without covering your pores which means your skin can still 'breathe' easily if you know what I mean.

I love using this product on my lazy days. I feel like it's easier and less messy compared to using a liquid foundation. I gotta be honest. I have been make up free on weekdays because I want to start my working day as early as possible and doing my make up in the morning just won't let me do that. But when I do feel I have extra time, this is definitely my go-to choice. 

Hope this review is informative if not useful for you. Thank you for reading. Until the next post! =)
