What is the difference between "Bare Essentials vs. Mineral Power"?

This powder foundation seems to do the work as far as making your face look smooth for the time being. I like the (New Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfection Powder Foundation) so far so good. I guess the difference would probably be the price. What do you girls think anyone out there tried the Bare Essentials?

  • I use the bare minerals for about 4 years now and i love it . I was thinking about trying something else though because of the price maybe i'll try the maybelline kind.

  • I tried Bare Escentuals, and did not like it, I returned it to Sephora withina few days. The girl who processed my return at the store was Philipina, and said it typically does not look well on darker/olive skin tones, it tends to look ashy.
