Wow, can you tell I get easily overwhelmed?? In the past 15 mins, I learned that Bare Escentuals is not the only mineral makeup company out there. I started some research, and here's what I've narrowed it down to. Opinions greatly appreciated.

1) Mineral Essence: Seems like the best by far, as it includes antioxidants such as green tea and vitamin E. Also a higher SPF than BE.

2) Mineral Secrets: SPF of 20. Also antioxidants.

3) Jane Iredale: BUT I found out that they include dimethicone in their powder. I always thought this was supposed to be an irritant, or carcinogen or something.

Help me!
Hi, my 2 cents worth is a vote for mineral basics. you can purchase online and it works great for all day natural looking coverage. also has a number of shades and each comes in warm, cool and neutral for the best true to color match i've ever experienced.
Here I go again - best way to try the mineral make-up is to order samples. Most of them will allow you to do so. I did not like any of the ones I tried. Did not stay on my face at all. Hated Bare Essentials (BE). The best one so far is the one you can buy at Wal-Mart, Target, or local drug store is Physcian's Formula. It is a new mineral make-up. Stays on better than any of the others I tried and by far less expensive - $12.95 - no postal costs!!!! Try it, my drug store said they would take it back if I didn't like it. :bouncing:
I've been using Bare Escentuals for years now and LOVE it! Ordered ME by mistake....tricky email they sent, made their site look just like BE. ME feels lighter, but did not provide coverage, plus, it faded away. BE stays on all day. When I wash my face at night using ME, the washcloth is clean, with BE, I notice foundation color on the cloth.

I gave the rest of my ME to my mom, reordered BE for myself.

I did buy Physician's Formula in the drug store, made my face itch and I got a hive on my neck from it....

Best bet, order samples and play with them! (big help huh??)

I agree with the vote for Mineral Basics. You can also purchase small samples if you are not sure of the color. Their ingredients are also natural and they are not over-priced. I've tried BE and Jane Iredale and I think this a superior product.
