I Have a Bone to Pick with Bare Minerals

I’ve been using Bare Minerals makeup since I was a senior in high school, over 8 years! Ever since I started using it, a jar of the foundation cost $25. In 8 years it hasn’t gone up in price. What a great deal, right? Well, I recently discovered how the company is able to do this… just add less makeup to each jar while keeping the jars the same size!

all the same size!

.3 oz of makeup (old jar)

.28 oz of makeup (new jar)

I’m sure this isn’t the first time they’ve done this as well. I bet when they first started manufacturing this they started out with an even .5 oz per jar. And the foundations aren’t the only jars being scaled down!

Old jar of the ‘Faux Tan’ with .1 oz

According to ulta.com the Faux Tan now has .07 oz in it. How disappointing! I will still use Bare Minerals because I really do think it is the best makeup, but I guess I’ll just have to keep purchasing it more frequently at the $25 price.
