Rethink What Matters – bareMinerals Giveaway

Earlier this week I was introduced to the “Rethink What Matters” campaign by Bare Escentuals, and I can only wish I learned about it sooner!

I discovered Bare Escentuals in my own life just after my daughter was born. I had been wearing the same foundation since high school, but Cover Girl stopped making it. At first I was frantic, it worked for so long, and I hate change. But then searched for a new solution. I have to admit, it was a TV infomercial that first got me to consider Bare Escentuals.

I have moderate adult acne that plaques my life. At first I scoffed at the idea that a powder could cover all of my blemishes, but I was sucked into the TV. It looked like it really covered… With a new baby in my life, I was searhing for more and more natural products. I was instantly in LOVE with the natural mineral idea.

I started asking around, did anyone I know use bareMineral makeup? Yes, my close friend and my sister-in-law both gushed over how much they loved the product. So when I came across a free trail of bareMineral foundation at Ulta – I was all over it. I think the flyer with my makeup said something like, “Try it for 10 days and you will be hooked.” I was hooked in 1 day. I loved how light it felt on my skin, and I was amazed that it did cover everything! Within a month I went from trying the foundation to using the whole line as my sole make up line! (I converted my sister too!)

I wish I could say it never cakes up, but I slather it on heavy in problem areas (such as my chin), so it does tend to gather there. But a little tissue dab and quick swipe of reapplication and my skin is smooth once more.

Alright, now that I have gushed about how much I love Bare Escentuals products, let me tell you about its new campaign and how you can WIN! 

The Bare Escentuals line was born from employees rethinking makeup itself – the beauty brand found looking good is not about using artificial gunk to cover imperfections, but about enhancing what you’ve got. Every week at, a new discussion topic will be featured with five questions for you to answer and share with your friends by email, Facebook and Twitter. What’s in it for you? Well, good karma for one. And free products and other fantastic goodies. Plus for a few really lucky ladies, an even bigger reward that will definitely make rethinking worth your while.

  1. Took the quiz, and am always interested in trying something new because I don’t keep up with this kind of stuff – I think I wear the same makeup I wore in high school!

  2. I just took the quiz. The question about applying your makeup in a car is clearly not aimed at those of us in NYC who are rarely in a car (unless you count riding in a taxi). 🙂

  3. I don’t wear makeup much but started using bare minerals last year and I love it. The quiz was fun. I like the end feedback. Cute 🙂
