Why did Bare Escentuals decide to focus more on make-up? I know many people who loved using their lotions. Was it a decision based on brand identity or sales?

Also, Glominerals is rising. Their products are supposedly superior (Much finer. Milled 3 times compared to Bare Escentuals who mills only once). Their prices are almost the same.

The majority of people I've talked to use Bare Escentuals. Of the people who don't use Bare Escentuals, they use Glominerals. All of the Bare Escentual users I've talked to have never heard of Glominerals.

This is worrisome because they might be future converts?

I was looking into buying BARE today, but with all these questions about BARE's marketing plan and the increasing amount of competition, I may have to do some more research and/or limit myself to a small position.

My girlfriend is a Bare Escentuals user. She claims it's better than everyday and sheer minerals. She has yet to try glominerals. I'll have to provide an update when I buy her some.

What do you fellow fools think?
