But curiosity drove me to try a different kind of mineral foundation, so bareMinerals was my next foundation, which I used for 2 years. Also really natural looking, smooth, and didn't break me out either. I was pretty loyal to it, but I hated how cumbersome it was to apply since it was a loose powder.
The way it works is that a BB cream is soaked in a sponge, which is then placed inside the compact. There's a lid to keep it from drying out, and the makeup sponge just stores inside the lid. The sponge claims to be antibacterial, but I gotta say, I definitely clean mine because it gets pretty grimy. It washes pretty well and looks almost brand new! The compact itself is a bit larger than I had expected, but is solidly made and premium feeling, despite being made of plastic.
Most of all, I love how fast it is to put this foundation on. My whole makeup routine (aside from my eyebrows) is optimized for speed. I hate waking up in the morning and I hate getting ready, which is why I love working from home so much. It's easy to just throw this on the face to even out my skintone and cover some spots.
