what is the best priced mineral makeup? i really dont wanna pay for barenaturals because it is soooo darn expensive! i have used SheerCover before and i liked it, but they messed up my checking account SO horrible i swear not to go thru them again! i tried one thru the stores....a covergirl one maybe, and it was just horrible!!! i have bad skin and it would prob be better for my face to use a mineral based makeup VS the foundation.

i am a 21 year old Wisconsin mama to my precious daughter, Eliahna Maree, loving fiance to lee, pregnant with our little boy!! (1.26.10) Bryant Allen. Disposible diapering, ERFing, breastfeeding, NON-CIO, Vaxing mommy turned to NON-VAXing!

I've tried SEVERAL mineral make-up lines from Bare Minerals to PUR (pronounced pure) minerals to Loreal. Honestly, my favorite has been the Loreal line that can be picked up just about anywhere. Its between 7-9.00 per package and I really like it and it matches my skintone well. Thats what I use for the foundation.

For bronzer and blush I use PUR.

Honestly Bare Minerals is really the only choice...I have tried all the rest and they do not work nearly as good.

I have had my set that cost $60 for almost 4 months...and its not even half gone.

sephora makes a decent mineral powder.  i think its around $20.

you could also look at spray foundation.

Everday Minerals. 

http://www.everydayminerals.com/

Some of my best blushes have come from this company.  They are MILES cheaper than Bare Escentuals and just as high quality!  Great customer service, will help you find the perfect color for your skintone...and will even send free samples. 

Bare Escentuals gave me the worst cystic acne I'd ever had in my life.  Turns out I was allergic to bismuth (a mineral found in their products.)  :D

I'm a MAC and Make Up For Ever wearer now, but for Mineral makeup, Everyday Minerals is your best bet.  As far as drugstore brand, Loreale Bare Naturale is nice.  But I'd still recommend EDM.

Have you tried their new matte line yet?  I wish I could...that bismuth tears me up.

I love Neutrogena Mineral Makeup. Light, doesn't smell as funny as some, the liquid kind isn't greasy, doesn't go on thick. Covers well. And its pretty reasonably priced I think.
