You might try Everyday Minerals' Original Glow formula.

I second pavement's comment. I have SUPER dry skin and EM original glow works like a charm for me.

thirding it - Original Glo is great, it doesn't dry your skin out at all Besides, Everyday Minerals arent tested on animals, and are priced very reasonably. Oh - and they give out free samples

Wow, I just looked at their website and there are so many color choices. How do you choose the right color for concealers and foundations?

Thanks angel, it's important to me that Everyday Minerals isn't tested on animals.

The addy to the Everyday Minerals forum has changed, it's now http://www.heavenlyrain.net/minerals. the board has been upgraded, so you'll have to reregister, but now it's going to have a lot more features. Just a heads up

Mineral Makeup
For those out there who have tried Sheer Cover mineral foundation, would you recommend it?
The way it's marketted looks tempting and promising but I'd like to hear some opinions on this product before I actually buy it (don't want to be wasting money, you see).

Here's a link for those who want to read more about it:
http://www.beauty-minerals.com/more/16644-349.php

It's supposed to be very quick and easy to apply, covers well and is actually good for your skin...is there any truth in this?

NO! This brand is absolutely horrible. Stay away I tell you! The foundation is abysmally cakey and thick with this off color orange shade that will never match your neck. Not to mention it feels like you have a slab of cement on your skin. I've tried both the light and the medium, but to no avail did the colors ever match my skin tone no matter how many times I mixed from the two color kits to concoct my own shade. Also in the sunlight, I've noticed a tint of greyness that makes one looks seriously ill. The brush is brisk on your skin and it just does not feel good. I think this would work for someone who is slightly ompa lumpa-esque from a perpetual tanning bed addiction and has a lot of imperfections to cover up. It was difficult in my opinion, to apply this foundation lightly as it just feels so chalky and masky. But note that I never wore foundation prior trying this, just occasionally tinted moisturizer. (I was tempted by the "Feels like you're wearing absolutely NOTHING!" sales pitch) I'd definitely say skip this and go for something else.

Actually Sheer Cover was the very 1st mineral makeup brand I tried. It was just so-so, IMO, and I stopped using it. I later tried Bare Minerals and have now switched to Everday Minerals, which is a gift from God. Anyway, I found Sheer Cover to be kind of cakey. It didn't give the flawless finish that other mineral makeups do.

Just bought a Jane Iredale compact! Also bought a flat powder brush (apparently your not supposed to use the round ones for powder foundation ). So expensive, but luckily I wasn't paying for it.

Before I used Cheap-O Covergirl Clean Foundation w/ L'oreal True Match Powder. The first was way too oily (as it was oil based), the second wayyyy to chalky and unnatural looking. I was pretty set on Maybelline Pure Makeup (water based foundation) until I saw myself in a picture looking like a freakin geisha.

I have light brown skin (african american), and I can never find a color that matches, let alone in both seasons. Hopefully it actually does match my skin tone tommorow morning and holds up against my oilyness.

I'll update later.

Wooo! Finally! This is the last time I hassle around with stuff from the drugstore (which I have been doing since I started wearing makeup :p )

Lets just say if you are using cheap face makeup and you want to upgrade, I recomend Jane Iredale.

It felt light all day, no gross sludge makeup mask on. Even now at the end of the day it doesn't look half as bad as the old stuff did after a couple of hours. I still got shine later on in the day, but not the 'abnormally polished' forhead shine. I just dabbed my face with a tissue and a little more powder and it was back in business, no streaking like the other.

no nasty breakouts but it does have bismuth (sp?) in it.

Best of all, it was all-in-one...if I needed more coverage I just added a bit more...

I sound like a bad commercial, hahah, but whatever! it was $50 well spent!
