This week I ventured into unknown territory - the world of mineral make up. I've never previously shown any interest in this cosmetic arena, believing it wasn't suited to my coverage needs or skin tone. I've been using bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation by Bare Escentuals with surprising results. More on my experience and findings later.
I just want to briefly give you the heads up on a new product which is launching today.
Matte SPF15 Foundation is the new mineral foundation from Bare Escentuals which claims a breakthrough formula designed to minimise pores, absorb excess shine without drying skin whilst keeping your skin looking flawless and matte all day.
It's new Click, Lock, Go™ sifter also promises to make spillages a thing of the past too, if you're familiar with Bare Escentuals original packaging you'll know that this is a big improvement. It's also available in 15 shades so that every skin tone and colour can experience the benefits of bareMinerals on their skin.
Sounds good? Well it's launching on QVC today, priced £19.50 - tune in at 8am, 11am, 2pm or 5pm (BST) to see it in action.
Can't manage that? Then check out Lipglossiping's thoughts on it.
Bare Escentuals Matte SPF15 Foundation will be available from August exclusively to Selfridges before becoming available to other counters and concessions nationwide in September.

I'm really interested in finding out which of you use mineral make up, and if you prefer it over liquid, cream or cream to powder foundations. This is all new to me but I've been pleasantly surprised so far. So please, any tips, application advice, etc which you want to pass on, would be much appreciated.
