“Unreliable & Poor Support”

Completed a purchase (item US67733) on Tue 12/13/2016. As of the time of this review Thu 12/22/2016 the order has not arrived. On Tue 12/20/2016, a Bare Minerals' support agent (by phone) advised me to continue waiting and no further assistance was offered. Absolutely no sense of concern. I've reached out to Bare Minerals via e-mail (*******@bareminerals.com) today, Thu 12/22/2016, in hopes to find a resolution. This review will be updated with their response, and transcript of the e-mail. This was my first experience purchasing from bareescentuals.com.

I also like it as well as other users here. Their material are indeed natural what is certainly superior.

Tip for consumers:
This review is specific to the quality of their online shopping experience (very poor). The product itself was not evaluated, as the purchase was never delivered.

Unlike other companies selling beauty products, this one uses natural minerals. And it is great. I'd say it's awesome.

So many beauty brands have toxic ingredients in their formulations... Bare Escentuals does a good job at a great formula that's safer to use. The foundation is light but you can layer it, so it's versatile. Great option!

Bare Essentials is one of the best mineral makeups around. I enjoy being able to add a subtle glow and a bit of color to my cheeks and eyes all the while knowing that its safe and chemical free.

I have used this make-up since Aug 2004, and in fact I need to order more. It makes my skin so healthy. A plus!

Years ago I met the founder of bare minerals in a local boutique
I have dry, sensitive skin
The company is responsive to questions about their products.
Best deals in my options are their sets
Many compliments on my skin. Not "make up".
As far as foundation their foundations are adaptable I can use light /med to medium in my opinion the shades are neutral
Used to receive the kits.
Very easy to postpone shipment the products, a little goes a long way
Only complaint, bought sets, however no instructions. One is a large set of eyeshadows /eye liner. Their kits used contain suggestions.

My friend has been buying cosmetics for a long time, and she was always happy. And recently I also decided to order and try. And I did not regret, very cool and high-quality cosmetics!

Bare escentuals is great for makeup that won't clog your skin. Online, you can browse their products. They have videos online on how to apply the makeup, and different techniques for application.

So years ago I use to wear cheap crappy make up. Then I walked into a bare minerals store. Sure I had heard of them from tv infomercials but to go into the atmosphere and be treated like a princess. It was amazing. Unfortunately I moved away from stores and I quit wearing make up but now that my daughter is in dance I went back to the bare essentials website for help. Man the product line has seriously grown! I was lost but the website makes it so easy to purchase! Sure it's a little pricy but can you put a price on quality?

Bare escentuals is by far my favorite mineral make up that goes on smooth without any caking. Not super cheap but not too expensive either.

This is the best mineral makeup out there. Love that you have a choice of matte or original. I think that smashbox has an idea that I wish bare minerals had thought of tho, that is the halo foundation to get you how much you need in a turn, it is convenient and no mess.

Easy to buy it online and the shipping of their make up has always arrived on time. I like being able to get the exact color I want online.

I had bad acne for years using the wrong make up. I saw the ad for bare escentuals and my acne is so much better now using their make up.

Answer:

No. It is actually quite good for your skin. I can't speak to bad, bad acne, but I do get occasional break -outs. It ( the foundation) lets your skin breath. I think that they also offer an acne treatment. The company has always stood for the natural, minerals from the earth, and it's benificial properties. They say"it's so gentle to the skin, that you can sleep in it ". They have a new product, I've started using, called "complexion rescue ". It's my new favorite. It's a liquid, kind of a gel like, you can apply w/a brush or fingers. I found the combo on QVC. It also has spf 30. You can use alone, or under the powder, that's how I use it. It's not cheap, but you don't need very much. Then, also, you don't use as much powder. Hope this helps.
