  • I use Bare Minerals and LOVE it. I have very oily skin naturally but this stuff actually keeps my fave really dry. I never have to retouch my makeup during the day like most things. It's advertised as safe to wear even at night and won't clog your pores. It lasts a while too because it doesn't take much so the cost of it doesn't bother me.

  • I used the one by L'Oreal, and I didn't like it. I'm used to using liquid make up. I have dry skin though, and it seemed to make my skin drier and it went into my fine lines on my face (I'm 28 :(((( ) and didn't really work for me.

    That said, I'm currently using the cream to powder foundation by Avon and I really like it. Not too expensive either, only $8 for the compact.

  • I use a tiny bit of mineral liquid from Maybelline mixed with some face lotion by Mary Kay, and then I use Bare Minerals over it as I have very dry skin and I can't just use the mineral makeup alone.

    I LOVE Bare Minerals.

  • I went back to liquid foundation simply because I prefer it, but the best mineral makeup I've ever used is Everyday Mineral. They are about half the price of Bare Minerals, they have sooo many colors to chose from in everything from foundation to concealer to blush to eye makeup, and they have 4 different formulas of foundation from a dewy glow to a matte finish. Plus they send free samples. All you pay in about $4 in shipping. Another plus is EM does not contain the ingredient bismuth which is in other brands. Bismuth can make your face itch like crazy if you're sensitive.
