My favorites is Aromaleigh - but I also like GeoGrafx & Botany. But there are some issues with Botany's shipping, so I wouldn't recommend them right now.

I have oily, acne-prone skin & MMU has been the answer. I love it! But I have to use the matte finish ones - anything with a shiny look makes my face look awful.

Some of the lines that use shiny mica & bismuth oxychloride are: Youngblood, BE, Sheer Cover, Jane Iredale, Illuminaire, etc. - these will give the skin a "glowy" look - which works for some, but for others will accentuate any flaws. Mineral Secrets contains bismuth.

Another thing to consider is the amount of titanium dioxide in the formula. For some, a lot of TO will cause bumps (like whiteheads), breakouts, and/or flaking. I get all three when I use Cory or Alpha Skin Care, so I avoid those. I also experience "caking" & separation with those formulas. I understand that Bare-Faced Minerals is also high in TO.

Monave is another line - I find it too heavy, but it's another matte option.

My dd likes Pure Luxe - she has dry, sensitive skin & this matte powder works well for her.

Some other matte lines are: Evan's Garden, Herbs of Grace, & Raesin Images.
