Wonderful cleanser

Pros: moisturizing, comfortable, effective, excellent makeup remover, cleans without stripping
I have very oily skin, but as the weather grew colder, I was feeling stripped by the Purifying cleanser, which is usually quite gentle. I stopped by the boutique for a sample of Mineralixirs Facial Cleansing Oil, and I'm so glad I did. It completely removes makeup and leaves my skin feeling comfortable yet clean. Sometimes I do add a pump of Purifying cleanser as I massage the water in before rinsing, but that's usually not necessary. It's a lovely cleanser that keeps my skin in good shape during this cold weather. I'm so glad I gave it a shot! As soon as I got to the end of my sample, I ordered a full size, which I now use most nights.

Pros: beautiful, wearable, both cool & warm
I'm so glad I picked this up! The blush (cheek tint) is a sweet color, not too bright or harsh at all, and the wear is terrific. Even on my oily skin, it stays on all day, and you really do need just a few grains. The lipgloss is a perfect shade to go along with the look, and it's not "fighting" the cheeks or eyes. Secret Radiance is a nice highlight for the face and also works as a highlight on the lip or eye.
The eye look is rather warm, but it's really pretty. If you wear the colors as instructed in the kit, it's a smoky look. Heirloom isn't a neutral grey; it has a green undertone. Posh is a wonderful deep grey, and it works well in the crease and as a liner. It also makes a lovely lid color in a more traditional smoky eye. You can also use Queen Phyllis as a lid color and the two darker colors in the crease for a softer daytime look.
Curl & Lengthen mascara is my very favorite mascara. I love the Round the Clock liners, and Midnight works well with these colors. The brush is also great, perfect for precise application of eye colors and the cheek tint & radiance.
If it's not clear, I'm a big fan. :)

I bought this kit a few weeks ago at my local boutique, and it's just gorgeous! I adore the shadow primer, and though I rarely wear matte colors, Velvet Charcoal is perfect for a smoky look, in the crease, or as a liner. 4 PM liner is pretty, too, though it's not showing up as plum on my skin. It does last & last, which is a nice bonus. My last Round the Clock liner worked great until it had to be sharpened, when it dried up and couldn't be used anymore (though I always put the cap on tightly), so I don't know how it will hold up long term.
Rarest Rose blush is gorgeous, a bit similar to another favorite Rosy Outlook (from another kit a couple of years ago) but somewhat brighter. And I love Plumtini gloss. It's perfect for summer!
I haven't used the brush because I have both ends separately already, so I can't comment on it.
If you're cool, try this kit. It's a good deal, and it will make you look BEautiful!

My go-to mascara

I love this mascara! I started using it while pregnant when I didn't have a lot of extra time or energy to curl my lashes. The formula really does lengthen & curl my very short, straight lashes. The curl is very natural looking, too. My husband noticed and commented. I will not be without this mascara again. It's perfect!

What skin type is this for?
Is this product for every skin type? I have sensitive skin with acne, and the less "scrubbing" I do, the less irritated my skin gets. It sounds like this doesn't need much to get the makeup and dirt off, and that would be perfect!
Each person is different, but it's worth a try. If you live near a boutique, stop by for a sample to test it at home. Good luck!

Is this REALLY good for oily skin??!
Just worried that this will increase the oil on my face. What is the benefit of this over other BM oily skin cleaners? Should this be used with another cleanser or what?
I generally use this alone, but sometimes I also add a pump of Purifying cleanser just before rinsing. My oily skin likes it, at least in colder weather.

Safe for pregnant women
I know that the bareMinerals makeup are safe to use for pregnant women Is this cleansing oil also safe to use?
I don't see any ingredients that are known to be risky for pregnant women, but please take the ingredient list to your doctor and ask.
