... Personally, I didn't care for Bare Escentuals - although I love mineral makeup. I do recommend buying samples, whichever line you decide to try. The thing I didn't like the most about BE was the fact that it looked *shiny* on my skin - even when I used the Mineral Veil - which was supposed to help eliminate that. It's due to the shiny mica & bismuth oxychloride (which can... (7 replies)
... the very few times I used it, i got a few pimples. Could have been totally coincidental, but then again, I heard some people can actually have a reaction to the mica that is used in the product. ... (22 replies)
... I just posted in another thread about Everyday Minerals, which I first learned about while reading reviews for Bare Escentuals mineral makeup online - a lot of people had switched to Everyday Minerals because of the quality, reasonable pricing and because they have more formulas that are more matte than BE's mineral makeup, which can be shiny.

... You have to look at other things, too - not just makeup. What type of cleanser are you using? Do you use a toner/astringent? Any other products?

A gentle cleanser, a... (2 replies)
... Then they're NOT using the same kind of mica as the companies with the matte powders. ... (22 replies)
... Mica IS what causes the shine. Straight out of the mouth of Leslie Blodgett, CEO and President of Bare Escentuals. ... (22 replies)
... I can't answer all your questions cuz I've only tried Bare Escentuals. I don't think you would like that one either if you don't like the dewey look cuz that one is dewey as well. ... (22 replies)
... After reading so many raves about Bare Escentuals, I finally ordered some (cost $60!). I have tried using it numerous times and it just looks HORRIBLE on my skin. All of my imperfections (enlarged pores, dry areas, lines, tiny scars) look much more noticeable with it. I think the main problem is the sparkly (mica ?) stuff that's in it. I suppose if you have near perfect skin... (10 replies)
