Comparison: Sheer Cover vs Bare Minerals



by Trice H
(El Dorado Hills, CA USA)

I have tried Sheer Cover and Bare Minerals. Currently I have many jars of Bare Minerals in my vanity that I am not using. Tried Bare Minerals first and then tried Sheer Coverage. Bare Minerals in comparison is heavier coverage, the light shades that came in my kit had yellowish tinge not flattering to my coloring. It did not seem to blend as well as the Sheer Cover. Sheer Coverage has shades that are very complementary to my coloring, almost invisible when blended, but provide a light but flawless coverage. I do plan to try other brands. I am not a big fan of the Sheer Coverage auto ship program as I use make up very sparingly and only several times per week rather than daily. So the auto ship programs both Sheer Coverage and Bare Minerals have loads me up with products to quickly. Plus the other products (lotions) that come with both programs are terrible.

Completely agree with the first post...bare minerals is heavy and sheer coverage is lighter and colors are more complimentary. However, I will be trying Jane Iredale.

No comparison

My sister gave me all her bare minerals make-up. I've tried it serveral times and there is no comparison. Sheer cover's coverage is much better. My complaint with sheer cover is that it's so much trouble and expensive buying through them. I search and buy it other places.

Sheer Cover & Bare Escentuals
by:

I've used Sheer Cover for 6 months and Bare Escentuals for 3 months. If I have to compare both, I would say that Bare Escentuals is better. To be totally honest, I didn't like either brand of mineral makeup because I end up breaking out. I'm still searching for a brand of mineral makeup that can look natural on me, cover well, last long, and doesn't break me out.

i love this sheer cover!

Auto shipping
by: Steph

I like Sheer Cover. I'm not a fan of the auto shipping but they've been very good when I call, e-mail, or live chat about pushing my shipment back a couple of months. Just be sure to call them a week or so in advance.

Sheer Cover vs Bare Minerals

I agree that sheer cover covers better although it took me a little while to get used to the cream concealer.
I have my shipments set to once every 6 months since I only wear makeup one day a week. I also have only 3 products in my shipment.
I have a friend who also uses S.C. about once a week so we both use my account for our makeup. I just change the kit products 2 weeks before my ship date.

Both have some good products.

I tried sheer cover years ago and last few years started using bare minerals. I like the bare minerals better because it did not make my face look as heavily made up as sheer cover. (maybe just used to much). Hands down, the shear coverage concealer is the best I have ever used. It was amazing when I had to cover acne, etc. I will have to say I equally love the bare minerals primer. I have used primers but did not see where they made a difference. This one made my skin look flawless!!!

I completely agree, I have also tried both and really think that Sheer Cover is far more superior to bare minerals. It looks more natural and it covers much better. My skin also feels healther with sheer cover makeup. However, Bare Minerals offer more in terms of blushes and eye shadow colors witch is very appealing to the younger crowd.

You have the ability to change how frequently you get your makeup. I too, don't use everyday, only on occasions. Go into your account, then to the drop down "Shipping Frequency" There you can put in how many weeks. For example I use it so little I'm able to get by with every 20 weeks. Perfect for me.
I also like how light it is compared to Bare Mineral & yet still covers.
Sheer Cover is the first makeup I've used that not only did a pretty good job of covering but actually did looked natural.

Sheer Cover is the best



I have used everything you can think of. Bare Minerals, MAC, Makeup Forever, Smashbox etc... I liked them all for a reason but when I used sheer cover I fell in love so light and natural and it still gives me full coverage. my skin looks airbrushed...i love it!!

The Most Amazing Mineral Makeup



by Fabiola
(Alexandria. VA USA)

I'm 25 years old. I'm a skin care specialist and my job is to make sure the products I recommend to my customers meet their skin needs and work for them. As a skin specialist I have to try everything that's out there. My main problem was to find the best mineral foundation. It was difficult because my skin is very oily and sensitive. I have post acne marks, broken capillaries, and some sun damage. Most of the mineral foundations I tried made me break out or didn't cover my imperfections. I tried Raw Minerals, Bare Minerals, Mary Kay mineral makeup, and many more. But none of them satisfied me. Till I tryed Sheer Cover, this makeup blew my mind. It looks so natural but yet it covers all your imperfections. It is so easy to apply and unlike other minerals the container is bigger(the regular size, not the one you get in your first order)for more comfort and less mess. When I apply Sheer Cover, it looks like I'm not wearing make up. It takes me 2 minutes to apply this makeup. I go to work for 8 hours and stays flawless, the secret is to get the mineral foundation and the mineral powder foundation. The powder foundation will help you set your makeup and to do touch ups. All of my customers look and my face and ask me what do I use for my skin. I tell them my skin routine and that I use Sheer Cover as my makeup. They don't believe I wear makeup nor they believe about my skin imperfections. Sometimes I have to remove my make up and show them.
The brushes look clean and professional, but it is made of fine goat hair (not recommended for reactive skin or prone to redness). If you have this type of skin replace the brushes for one that is gentle with your skin. I haven't tried the cleanser or the lotion because I'm very satisfied with my current skin care.

I love love this makeup!!!



Well I must say I was very not interested in buying makeup from an informercial. That said this sheer cover was pulling at me to try. Being a black girl with really oily acne prone skin I was looking for something that would help with these problems not add to them. And so I gave sheer cover a try , WOW pleasantly happy with the out come my skin never broke out minimizes the oily look and it helped with my breakouts I love love this makeup!!!

PS using it for 5 years now.

This is a good product!



by Alissa

I ordered Sheer Cover Makeup spontaneously after watching an infomercial one night. After I ordered, I went online to read the reviews and got scared because 90% of them were bad. People had nothing but problems with the company and the makeup. Fortunately, my experience with this product and the company have been great thus far. Their website is very clear about everything, and the makeup is the best I have ever tried! My skin is sensitive and most makeup is the cause of my breakouts. I did not know this until I started using sheer cover and I hardly ever breakout anymore. I absolutely LOVE this makeup!!! You don't feel it, it goes on wonderfully, it makes your skin look so good. I have huge pores and this makeup minimizes their appearance. I definitely think it is a good investment!

The best foundation!



by Aiyah M
(Hamtramck Michigan, USA)

I used to work at a Proactiv Kiosk in a local mall last year and we sold Sheer Cover. I bought this product with my employee discount and fell in love with it! I am fair skinned and I have anemia, so my skin sometimes looks greyish and dull. I also have dark circles and sheer cover fixed all my problems. I use the concealer for my dark circles and this along with the sheer cover foundation, my face looks flawless. While I was working there, people always complimented my skin and they didn't know I had sheer cover on until I would tell them. It looks very natural and blends great. The only problem is if you have dry skin, you MUST moisturize before putting this on or else you will look more dry! And be sure to not use too much because it will look cakey. I quit working there in December and bought my last foundation during that time, and now in almost July, 7 months later, I still have some foundation left. It lasts a long time! I will still continue to buy sheer cover even though it will be more expensive now that I don't get my employee discount, but it's worth it! I'll never go back to any other type of foundation!

Extremely Disappointed!



by Lola
(Queens, NY, USA)

I purchased this product thinking it was better than the others out there, but I was dead wrong!!!...I did all the steps, multiple times I might add, & every time my face NEVER had that "airbrushed" beautiful look they claim it should create...& then to top it all off, they keep charging your account until they receive the product back into their system, which can take 4-6 weeks...

Was a beautiful coverage, but is not for sensitive skin!



by Bethanne
(Leesville, Louisiana)

i dont wear make-up very much except for photographs or special occasions. I have V-E-R-Y sensitive skin, everything irritates it. SheerCover was recomended by a a co-worker, she wore it and looked lovely. It took me about a month to gt the right colors to match my skin. (i am asian and find that color matching is not always a good match to my skin) Once i finally found the colors, i loved the way it looked on, but it only took about a day for it to cause bumps on my face. I was very itchy n red. The concealer had great coverage and the end results were beautiful. Minus the sensitive skin issues if u dont have any, this is a good make-up for u. :0)

Hi Bethanne -
Thanks for your review! The ingredient that is most likely causing you problems is Bismuth - here is some more info -
Bismuth in Mineral Makeup.

Best Wishes!

Thumbs Down



I didn't like Sheer Cover makeup. I love the cleanser and moisturizer though. The makeup made my skin look caky after just a couple hours. I have oily skin and I need something that won't feel to heavy just after a couple hours. Whether I put on less or more, it turned out the same.

You'll be amazed!



by Kasey
(Saint Albans, WV)

I love Sheer Cover. I was skeptical about this product, but I gave it a chance. I'm glad I did! I saw SO many bad reviews because they thought it was going to be MAGIC! NEVER expect something to be magic, because it won't be and that's when you get disappointed and then you can't enjoy the product anymore.

Let's get down to business.
Base Perfecter : Feels amazing on the skin and makes it feel so nice.
Duo concealer : I love that it is cream. My face doesn't like liquid make-up.
It covers red spots VERY well, but you have to lay it on a little thick for darker spots.
Concealer brush : I use it to apply to spots then I melt the concealer with my fingers into my skin. The brush isn't bad nor amazing. It's perfectly fine.
Mineral foundation : Goes on very nicely. I like that you can mix to fit your own shade because sometimes I tan a lot then go a while without tanning, so I can adjust when I need. Does not cake up on my face. Gives a good finish.
Foundation brush : Very rough. I would personally just buy a different one, but if you want this one works fine, too.
Bronzer : VERY dark and shimmery. You have to be VERY careful of how you put this one. (I use the blush all over my face. It works much better than the bronzer. I wash my face a lot so it's more pale than the rest of me. The shade of blush they give you should be a dark but natural color and it personally works best for me to give me a "tan" look.)
Ultimate Make-over Kit : I absolutely LOVE the lip-gloss. there's a nice pink color for brighter looks, and a nice caramel color for more natural/matte looks. The blush is a wonderful shade. The eye shadows go on well, and mix well together to get a natural AND smokey look.
Mascara : I was reading that the mascara was poor and clumped, but the mascara is a good formula, it's the brush that makes it clump. Find an old bottle of mascara or any bottle with a brush that you liked. Clean the brush and use it with THIS mascara. I use a Maybelline Stiletto Mascara brush.

So, all-in-all, you just really have to experiment. Learn how much to use and were on your face and how to alter this product to your needs and you will be VERY pleased. Remember it isn't magic, but it DOES work. I've fallen in love.

The first time I have felt beautiful



by Tamara Wiley
(Lewis, IA)

I am 26 years old and a college student. For the last five years, I have been struggling with an autoimmune disorder and I always have dark circles and just lost my glow after going through the treatments. Today, my sheer cover arrived in the mail and I put it on. I went to show my husband and started to cry because it is the first time I have felt beautiful and was actually able to see me again in five years. I am not a makeup woman because you could always see the dark circles through other makeup so I finally gave up. Then I received an offer from Sheer Cover and said why not, especially when it only costs 11.00 with their discount. I generally spend that just on mascara. I feel beautiful again and there is no price tag for a boost in self confidence.
