Bare minerals, BB creams, tinted moisturizer, what do you prefer?

I hate caked on makup, although some people can pull it off. I look like a clown if I have too much product on, which is why I love bare minerals powders, bb creams, and tinted moisturizer. If you aren't looking for heavy coverage i think all of these are great options.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Bare Minerals. I have been using it for a good 7 or 8 years now and I will NEVER use anything else again.

I don't like mineral makeup at all.  It seems to be a product really based on skin type... dry skin looks dryer in my experience, plus it's MESSY.  I LOVE BB creams.  They are like one stop shopping... mosture, sheer coverage, treatment and SPF.  I've tried a lot (YSL, Smashbox, others) but seriously, the Garnier one that's only like $10 is perfect.  You have very pretty glowing skin, I wouldn't cover it up too much!

I've used bare minerals, but I've not found anything that really suits my skin colour. It's either a tad too pale or too dark.

The BB cream that I tried just didn't work for me. First of all, it was really too pale. I think they have it in other colours now, but it really looked like I had white washed myself with something (and I put on a bit.) What I prefer is a tinted moisturizer. These days, though, I use a powder foundation. It's working best for me right now.

I use L'OREAL true match naturale mineral makeup. It is 19 spf (my moisturizer is 15 also). I have never gone back to liquid since finding this a few years ago.
What I love is its not heavy at all so I can throw just that on to even out my face without having to wear anything else in a pinch.

I get dry patches but I moisturize my face about 10 minutes before doing m makeup and the powder looks great! Powder does make dry patches more apparent though.

Love my Bare Minerals and like previous poster I'fe been using it for almost eight years. I also love tinted moisturizers on occasion and am excited to try the new Nars one. It has so many good reviews.
