Mineral make-up @ the drug-store?

I need new make-up and I have pretty sensitive, break-out prone skin, so I am thinking I should go back to wearing mineral make-up for the summer. Which brands have you tried that are sold @ your local store (think wal-mart) and what is good or bad?

  • Physician's tinted moisturizer is the only drug store foundation product that never made me break out. Even the expensive ones make me break out. But that is the only one that leaves my skin soft and clean.

  • I've tried everything nearly and those newer mineral powder formulas seem to work best for me. Bare Minerals is great, but costly. Avon has a good mineral powder formula that is reasonably priced. IF you're interested, let me know and see if I can help you out on that.

  • Why don't you try the Avon Mineral Makeup? Its great and its even less than what I've seen at Walmart but better quality! You can get free shipping with code FSANY at checkout too :)

  • i like loreal bare naturals, or something like that, for drug-store makeup. otherwise, bare minerals(med. priced), or jane iredale (high-priced).
