Holiday Gift Guide for Her: Sheer Cover Minerals Make Up

Mineral based make-up is all the rave right now. I think the reason is because it is more natural looking and the ingredients are so much less harmful to your skin. Recently I had the chance to compare Sheer Cover Minerals to Bare Minerals and I was pleasantly surprised.

Although the Bare Mineral make-up looked natural and hid a multitude of skin sin I felt like I had a layer cream on my face all day. I didn't think anything of it until I tried Sheer Cover Minerals. I received the Medium Kit which came with two mineral foundation tones, pocket duo kit, duo concealer, studio brush, moisturizer, cleanser, concealer brush, contour brush, mascara, sheer color compact (eyes, lips, cheek), tips/tricks DVD, and make-up case. All of this for only $29.95, with FREE SHIPPING! I priced a kit from Sephora that did not contain half as much product from Bare Minerals that cost $60.

From their site:
The secret to Sheer Cover® is an exclusive formula of light reflecting minerals that blend magically with your skin's natural oils for perfect coverage that's amazingly light. Sheer Cover® minerals are 100% natural, infused with skin soothing botanicals, natural sun protection, and anti-oxidant green tea to help protect your skin from the visible signs of premature aging.

  • Contains 100% pure minerals with NO oils, perfumes, dyes or talcs, so it's gentle and non-irritating - even for sensitive skin.
  • True Shade Technology™ ensures that the powders blend in with your skin tone for a perfect color match.
  • Feels light, allows the skin to breathe and goes beyond just covering up - it actually deflects light away from flaws.
  • Contains anti-oxidants designed to protect your skin from damaging free radicals.
  • Helps filter the sun's harmful rays and protect against the visible signs of premature aging with SPF 15.
I personally found Sheer Cover Minerals to be a lot lighter feeling on my skin then Bare Minerals and definitely more affordable. The only downside is that you cannot purchase it in the stores. You have to purchase Sheer Cover from their website at www.sheercover.com. The advantage to that is you don't have to leave the house...
