i do love it when a brand knocks itself off of the beauty pedestal!
until very recently, i didn’t think buxom (technically under the bare escentuals umbrella) show some skin foundation could be topped. as i have inched closer and closer to the end of my tube, panic started to set in. would i repurchase the same foundation? has something better come onto the scene since march of last year? (i would surely hope so, but fruitless product tests and endless sephora sampling have proved otherwise.)
as fate would have it, i repurchased my beloved show some skin the very week that my friends at bareminerals released complexion rescue tinted hydrating gel cream. when my sample of complexion rescue (in shade opal) arrived, i tore into it and rubbed a little on the back of my hand to see what the fuss was all about. standing at my kitchen island, i actually uttered “wow.”
from the hand test i could tell that this was going to be a game changer and now that i’ve been applying it daily, i can tell you that this is more than just a crush – it’s a full-on love affair of the long term variety, and here’s why:
bareminerals has create a gel formula that makes this more-than-a-tinted-moisturizer blend invisibly into my skin and feel like the most heavenly moisturizer. coverage is buildable, light to medium, so you get the natural, dewy look of a top-notch foundation with a lightweight and super hydrating feel. i have applied complexion rescue with my fingers (not my favorite), with this brush (even less my favorite) and settled on my #1 foundation brush to be the best vehicle. using something with dense bristles will give coverage that’s more even and you’ll be shocked by how very little of this stuff you need to cover your entire face.
as with any foundation, hop along to sephora to grab a sample to make sure that a dewy and moisturizing formula is going to work with your skin type. i’m predicting that this winter launch is going to make a lot of ladies (and their skin!) very pleased.
