Cory is much cheaper and it is matte. I hate the shiny finish of BE and I also tried Jane Iredale which was really expensive and very shiny. The shine just seems to really accentuate the flaws on my face. Cory is great so far and you are correct about the kabuki. I just tried it today for the first time and it makes a world of difference in how my face looks after application of Cory Cosmetics. Now, question for you, do you agree that all mineral makeups treat your face in the same way? I notice that BE advertises as the PUREST mineral makeup......do you think it really is? Do you think Cory is not as good of quality? Have you ever tried Aromaleigh, Geografx, Botany 101 or any other mineral makeups?

Funny you should ask that! I was wondering the same thing as far as being good for the skin. I do know I have not had one pimple since I started using BE and I use to break out every month! I was on the Cory website and the only way I could find to order it was online or through order forms. I could not find a number to call?
Something I do that may be helping the "shine" is I use Collagen C5 serum instead of a lotion under my BE?
I watched those infomercials for years before I broke down and got this stuff off QVC. It's been the only mineral make up I have tried. I thought to getting some cory samples because it seems more cost effective; however, the BE last a long, long time?
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.
