I know a lot of you love mineral makeup (and if you do, don't forget to enter this giant Bare Escentuals contest. As for me, I've had some mixed results. Mineral makeup sometimes makes me feel like I'm a little too "done." So I was excited to try Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Blush ($12.99), in hopes that this would be the product that pushed me onto the bandwagon.
One thing I like about this product is the all-in-one packaging. The container holds the blush and brush together, which saves time when you're in a rush to get ready. To release the brush, you slide a clear plastic sleeve down. Then, you flip the blush upside down and give it a little shake. (Because I am a dork, I kept thinking, "It's Shake and Bake. And I helped!")

At first, I got crabby because the blush didn't come out evenly. It was concentrated in one tiny spot, which left me with odd sweeps of color a la the Misfits (Jem, not Danzig). I tried again, this time shaking a few extra times and rubbing the brush in my hand. Ah, that's the ticket. The color then went on my cheeks evenly and sheerly, making it look like I had a rosy glow. Unlike a lot of blushes, these aren't shimmery, so they're ideal for those of you who like a more natural look.
