I AM NOT ORANGE!
I wish I could give this mess the middle finger.
I bought Sephora's Bare Escentuals Exclusive Get Started Kit for $60. I was so excited to try this stuff the same night I bought it, so I fired up my laptop and popped in the DVD. Per the DVD instructions, included in the kit, I used a literal "sprinkle" of the mineral powder and lightly buffed it on my face. Although coverage is decent, I ran into 3 major problems.
1. After 5 minutes of wear, the color morphed to a hideous reddish orange. Never had a tan in my life (don't need one either), but after application I glowed carrot orange. Hideous and embarassing.
2. Too many steps and brushes. Sprinkle, swirl, tap, buff, set....damn I DO have a life and a job to tend to!
3. Gave me breakouts on my forehead, cheeks, and nose! No explanation needed.
I took this -ish back to the store after 2 weeks, and suddenly my face cleared up. A kit of overpriced crap!
