Bare Escentuals Makeup

So after a good week of looking at bare Escentuals makeup online, I have decided to make a purchase, with the use of a few coupon codes of course! My plan is to start collecting bare Escentuals because I really like the products. I already have a makeup case with tons of different types of makeup, but I would like to get an individual makeup case for my bare Escentuals makeup. =)

I have been wearing bare Minerals makeup for at least 3 years now. I believe one of my friends recommended the product to me. I made my way over to a local store and tried it on myself. Of course, as a curious newbie to the product, I purchased the mineral starter kit for about $70? It came with all the foundations, brushes, DVD, and a compact mirror. I've stuck with bare Minerals ever since because it's the best product I've tried. It's not cake-y like a liquid foundation. However, for some odd reason, my black heads have never went away, even after switching to bare Minerals. Nevertheless, the product is good and the layers of foundation (the base, the warmth, mineral veil, etc.) doesn't take too long to put on and they don't make you look over-done. =) 

So, this is what I got (BTW, I received 20% off! Keep reading to find out how to get your discount!): 
Face Fashion Natural Muse. Sale $19.50, 20% off = $16.60

Pretty Delicious Eyeshadow and Lip Gloss Set. Sale $26.00, 20% off = $20.80 

Bare Minerals Original SPF 15 Foundation. $25.00, 20% off = $20.00
I also got this cute mini brush for FREE ($20.00 value) for spending over $50.00!
Discount code: BUFF (offer ends really soon so use ASAP!)

So basically everything came out to about $60.00, which includes tax. Shipping is always free for purchases of $50.00 or more. If you want to get 20% off entire purchase, type GLAMOUR at check out. It worked yesterday, but I don't know how long it'll work for! 
Also, about 2 weeks ago, I was shopping at Ross and found a bare minerals set for only $15.00!!! This is the set that I found:

I believe the retail price is over $50.00, but I only got this for $15.00!!! I am so glad I got it! I went back to different Ross stores to look for more makeup, but I couldn't find any bareMinerals makeup. Hmm, I guess it was just luck. x)

Anyway, it'll take about 7-14 days for my purchase to be delivered. Lets hope my order doesn't get canceled because I used two promotion codes, which is sometimes prohibited.. LOL *Cross fingers*
