Bare Escentuals leaves behind a very oily residue, even after using the Mineral Veil. You're supposed to use very little, but in order to get the coverage that I need, it's not suitable. And I believe it contributed to more breakouts.

It really depends on each person's skin type; I've heard of people who absolutely swear by this product, and others who would never touch it again. You could buy the small sample sizes and test it out for yourself. Consider using a mattifier or oil control lotion before applying the mineral make-up.

For a lot of people, it accentuates the pores and wrinkles, which takes away from the 'natural look.' And the shiny/oily residue is caused by Mica. Any product that has Mica in it will definitly leave shine.

As for the other products you mentioned, I'm not aware of them. Hope you find what works best for you.
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 it would work very nicely. It does cover pretty well if you keep applying more and more of it. I also find it messy to work with--powder falling all over the place.

So, it's just not for everyone. If you decide to try either of these products, try not to spend much like I did.
