Everyone knows we should use a yellow-toned concealer to banish those pesky undereye circles, otherwise known as Panda Eyes. The Mineral Makeup Girl raves about yellow mineral makeup. Using yellow minerals such as Bare Escentuals Well Rested and Summer Bisque is part of my makeup regimen. However, one The Mineral Makeup Blog reader posted this intriguing comment:
â€œi thot salmon was the best colour to conceal under eye circle?

Battle of the Undereye Concealers: Peach/Salmon vs. Yellow
With the success of Rare Minerals Night Treatment, I think that Bare Escentuals has come up with another hopefully great product, that would bid goodbye to our blemishes, and it’s called RareMinerals Blemish Therapy.
I’ll be updating this blog as I get more information about this breakthrough mineral skin treatment, but for those who want to get information first hand, open your TV screens on this schedule ( QVC ) : Continue Reading »
Be Blemish Free With Rare Minerals Blemish Therapy
I remember, I was in college when I started wearing makeup ( in highschool, alas, even dyed hair was a no-no and would earn a lower grade in conduct! ). I usually wore foundation, blush, and gloss, and didn’t bother applying eyeshadow. Now that I know the wonders on what eye colors would do, I somehow felt that I should have learned earlier!
Bare Escentuals has two sets for those who want to learn the right way to achieve two beautiful looks.
The first set, Tutorials : Smoky V Eye teaches us how to do the smoky eye makeup. I admit that it’s been over a year and I’m still in the beginner end in smoky eye makeup application!

Bare Escentuals Beauty School
Just tell me, how many consecutive times has Bare Escentuals won these prestigious Best of Sephora Awards already?
Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation
This is my first ever mineral foundation, and my eureka moment came from this, that I said good bye to traditional foundations forever. I could never forget my good ol’ Bare Escentual days when my friend would say, “hey, your skin improved so much! “. Love Bare Escentuals!
For this to be the best foundation among all foundations in Sephora, this is quite something. This is almost saying that mineral foundations rock! Way to go!

Bare Escentuals Bags Best of Sephora Awards, Again!
It’s great that some of the readers of The Mineral Makeup Blog have taken time to post in their comments, suggestions, recommendations, and even problems. Here’s what caught my eye as I was approving my comments a few days back. By the way, if you have a question, or a concern, please do email me at themineralmakeup at gmail dot com. I answer!
Back to our commenter’s question/request,
Well Hi everyone, I used Bare Minerals for 2 years before I realized it was the actual makeup making my skin just completely go haywire. (I was on different medicines/circumstancess) I had flawless skin, now itâ€™s kinda rough looking, with some pock marks, not many. I had cystic acne from the Bismuth I think in the foundation. Mineral Makeup Girl I will be interested when you have your post up. I am extremely aggravated that I spent that much money on a misleading product not to mention damaging. And yes I am an organic consumer, I believe in all this hype, so I was disappointed when I found out, but this is unbelieveable. I went back to Mac and my skin is fine, never again, I donâ€™t care if 24K gold is in it!! That trash wonâ€™t touch my face againâ€¦ Does anyone know what happened or what I can do to improve? I got an acne scarring lotion and a home mircodermabrasion kit. Any other ideas? For everyone that is happy with it, I am glad that it did not cause as much damage to you as it did to me. These companies do have a good product, I just wish there would have been an external warning instead of the, â€œthis will help your skinâ€. But stick with what works for youâ€¦ Thanks for letting me vent, and please post with any help!! Thanks
