[QUOTE=shannamarie36]What is everyone using to apply their mineral makeup? I need a good brush, etc.[/QUOTE]
Kabuki is the best. I got mine with my kit.
I believe the Cory would last a long time as well. It is the same concept with the little containers of loose powder. I wish I did know if BE was better or was the best mineral makeup for your skin. I keep thinking of the infomercial where they say, "its so pure you can sleep in it." Thats what keeps running through my mind. I dont know how to compare the two besides ingredient lists. What is collagen C5 serum and where did you get it? How much was it?
What do you all use from BE? The foundation, veil, and warmth? I also have a hard time matching colors from off of the computer.

:wave: You can get that serum at Walgreens. It's in a blue bottle with a dropper. I use it once a day and really like it. It isn't oily or greasy. Oh boy, I have a lot of
BE. I have two shades of light, warmth,veil, warm radience, well rested eye shadow, mascarra and my favorite liquid loofah! One tip is they say it takes about ten minutes to set. I do the foundation , usually mixing light and fairly light, then I do warmth OR warm radience and then apply mineral veil. I have so much because I order the special values on QVC and you get kits that come with tons of stuff!
HAHA, quite far from the expert! I also ordered some Alpha samples of mineral foundations. I dont know which ones to go with. The worst part is I do NOT want to break out. Thats my main fear so I want the best one out there. I also should get a very simple but good skin cleaning routine. I just cant seem to find what works good to keep my skin clear. My chin is out of control right now. Ill check Target as well tomorrow for that collagen. What is it exactly?

It says deep wrinkel serum? I would imagine the Vit. C might be good for Acne prone skin? I have read lots of good things about Pro Active.
[QUOTE=shannamarie36]I have tried it all for acne including two courses of accutane. I do not know what else to do to cure this problem. Its mainly chin and jawline acne and it NEVER goes away.[/QUOTE]
Sorry you have such a time with acne. I did when I was younger too. All I can tell you is not one zit since the start of BE which is fabulous. Every Month I would get the real sore under the skin pimples that hurt!! I use their entire line which includes the gycolic cleanser. I also use Neutrogena's new chemical peel. Good Luck, let me know which one works best for you and do tell..... how did you get all the samples?
You use which line of products? BE? Glycolic Cleanser? I get the samples off all the websites of each product. I got samples of Aromaleigh, Cory, and Alpha Skin Care. I cant remember if it was you saying you wish you could Alpha Skin Care but I wish I knew why that person wishes they could use it but apparently cant. Anyway samples on Cory are .35 cents and samples on the other two websites were 2.00 each. Hopefully I can have some color matches this way. Will let you know which I like best soon! I cant wait for the samples. Tell me about the skin care line you use though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All I found on the Cory web site was a print off order form and they were a buck each?
BE is Bare Essentuals, They have a huge line of skin care.
I use md formulations facial cleanser and the liquid loofah, this stuff is to die for. I can't tell you what it would be like for acne prone skin though.
That wasn't me with the Alpha Skin Care but I have read it is good as well as Neutrogena products.
What we go through for good looking skin :)
My favorite foundation brush is the baby kabuki I got from Aromaleigh.

Not all MMU's are equal - and unfortunately, without trying them, you won't know which ones will work best for you.

Some lines contain bismuth oxychloride, which is a known irritant. It really causes problems for some women, but others use it without any problems at all. Lines that use bismuth include Youngblood, BE/BM, Mineral Secrets, Jane Iredale. I didn't have itching with it, but I don't like the "shiny" look.

Another ingredient that causes problems for some women is cornstarch. This is found in BE's Mineral Veil. It can cause breakouts. Some women use it without any problems at all.

I have a problem with MMU that has a high concentration of titanium dioxide. Cory is virtually all titanium dioxide - Alpha Skin Care also caused problems for me. They both provide great coverage, but they clogged my pores (made bumps under the skin) & made my skin dry & flaky. But some women love both lines & never have problems.

I also used Evan's Garden & Monave - couldn't get a good color match & found them to be a little on the heavy side - they also tended to separate after a few hours.

The best lines for me are Aromaleigh, Botany 101, & Geografx. I get a matte finish, good color match, great coverage, no separation, & best of all - no breakouts or flaky skin.
