today I went to a boutique type place to purchase jane iredale makeup. I wasn't sure if I was going to buy it or not but I wanted to check it out.

the shade the woman picked for me was the best of any makeup I've tried. normally its too dark or yellow or something....the color was Bisque. but I didn't like the finish--it was too shiny dewey looking. the lady did half my face with powder and half with the liquid, then she sprayed me with this mist stuff.....then applied a little bit of a matte powder....but it was still dewey looking.

do you think it was the mist that caused so much shine? I really didn't think it was necessary but she did it anyway. (I told her I have dry skin so thats probably why, but I dont think my skin is as dry as I tend to think, lol) every foundation I try ends up all shiny on my face....yet I can't wear most makeup cos my face is too dry and flaky for it.

now...I'm not sure I wanna buy it. it was more than I expected...from everything I've seen online I thought it would be around 31, it is 46 for the liquid and 48 for the powder!

soooooo I'm not sure I am gonna purchase that.

so my question is...what other brands are not as shiny but have a color very close to jane iredales Bisque? (Im afraid the other brands will be too dark)

also.....about purchasing things online. I've done it a few times, but am not sure which sites are safe....I mean like discount sites or anything, how do I know I'll get the product I want?

also....I forgot which brand, but one (or a few)of the mineral brands is online only.....how fast do they ship? and how much is shipping? can you return it if its the wrong shade?
Yes Aromaleigh is the one with a ton of choices. I say your best bet, if you are really interested in learning about the Aromaleigh products, is to go on their message board and ask a few questions. The ladies there are really great at responding, and have a lot of knowledge about Aromaleigh. Personally, I am new to using mineral make-up but I know that I wont go back to using anything else. Though it did take me a little while to learn how to apply it correctly. Her skin care is also very good. Best of luck in your search.

Hi, I use the Sheer Cover brand of mineral makeup & I love it! I am also fair skinned, so I use the "light" color. One of the jars contains a beigey-yellow (undertone) powder, and that one seems to work best for me. The other jar that you get seems too dark for me (at least in the winter months). The finishing powder is neutral, and great. I haven't tried any of the other brands though.
