... Bare Minerals is great stuff, no doubt about it. I do get wonderful coverage from Everyday Minerals too. I would say it works equally well. ... (18 replies)

... You may also want to consider some of the smaller mineral companies. Like vboredatwork stated, it's really trial & error - and what type of coverage & finish you want. Bare Minerals, Mineral Secrets, Jane Iredale, & Youngblood all contain shiny mica and/or bismuth oxychloride. That will make the finish look "shiny". The bismuth also causes problems with itching in some... (8 replies)
... I just started using Bare Minerals foundation. I like it, but the appearance of my skin has taken some getting use to. I know it sounds weird, but it's like I look too "perfect". ... (12 replies)
... I use Bare Minerals and really like the coverage and the natural appearance. I don't have the "shiny" problem some have mentioned. ... (9 replies)
... I love Physicians Formula as well!! The sheer translucent compact powder is great; I use that with a large brush. I also like the multi-shade powder pallete, the bronzer and their mascara Ė itís lush brown with swirls of bronze. There is nothing like it. I hate foundations and anything cakey; with PF, I feel like I wear nothing. I havenít tried Bare Minerals, but it... (15 replies)

... and dust it over the shiny areas. It soaks it right up and gives my makeup a fresh look again without applying foundation or regular powder over. ... (2 replies)
... Interesting. I've always understood JI to be semi-matte with a "dewy" finish. Some people describe "dewy" as "shiny" or "glowy" - that look is due to shiny mica & bismuth. I've even seen reviews call it "strangely iridescent". I guess it's all a matter of what you consider "matte". (8 replies)
... ll find someone who loves one and hates another and vice versa. The two main issues that constantly arise though are the color and the finish. BE have a kind of shiny finish that some people don't like. I like it as it gives a kind of glow. But if you like a matte finish then this one is not for you. ... (8 replies)
... None use bismuth nor shiny mica, so they have a matte finish. ... (1 replies)
... I've tried both (and a lot of other mineral makeups) - I don't like BE at all. BE is made with shiny mica & bismuth oxychloride, both of which make the makeup shiny. Aromaleigh is completely matte - it's made with matte mica & does not contain bismuth. It is cheaper than BE also. One is sold by weight & the other by volume - so when you compare, be sure to convert them to the... (12 replies)
... I don't know if SC contains shiny mica or matte mica. I know it has bismuth in it, which is shiny. But if it has matte mica, that would cut down on the shine considerably. ... (37 replies)
... If you have a general idea on your color you need, try the auction sites. I found I only used my BE color and sometimes the mineral veil which I got on the sites for cheap. Plus they usually have sample sizes for low prices. I know some people have said BE is shiny, etc. but I think you have to try it to find out. My skin is sensitive and combination. It does not make my... (37 replies)
... I love mineral makeup, but not Bare Minerals. ... (8 replies)
... There is a company called Everyday Minerals that sells a very good makeup. I ordered the intensive coverage and it really covers. It has no bismuth so it isn't shiny. ... (15 replies)
... I pruchased the L'Oreal BE this past weekend and I have really mixed results. What I found was that the coverage was a lot more than I wanted. I don't wear liquid foundation ever, just pressed powder. The BE was just too much for me. However, I must say from a distance of about 2+ feet away, my face looked flawless. I did tend to still get shiny/oily so over time I looked... (9 replies)
