I've heard that the vegan kabuki brush from Forever Female is also very good. But it's not cheap though:

Everyday Minerals is absolutely the best thing I have ever used on my skin! I can't even imagine wearing liquid foundation anymore. Also, the blush in Fresh Air is like a golden god, it gives the most incredible glow. I'm pretty pasty though

I strongly recommend Signature Minerals to people with sensitive skin! I used to use Everyday Minerals but their mineral foundation made my face itch sometimes. But I still haven't found a good mineral foundation brush. Anyone have any recommendations?

i have oily-acne prone skin and have considered buying bare minerals but i have heard some so-so reviews on it. i'm kind of scared to use mineral foundation because i usually never wear foundation, i just don't want to make my skin worse. any body have any suggestions? would really appreciate it!

If your skin is all that oily, chel, then i wouldn't reccomend mineral makeup. I was a bare minerals BITCH back in the day, i used to shove that stuff ALL OVER my face, nonstop. it was crack to me. but at the end of the day, it fell into lines in my face, made my pores look huge, and made me super super shiny. for oily skin (me), you should use something more mattifying. At the moment, for an everday i use revlon colorstay, very medium coverage, great tones for pale skin, and extremely matte when used with some powder overtop, which is KEY for oily skin.

i just became a believer in Bare Minerals.. I used to never wear make up on my face just bronzer every now and then but when used after lightly exfoliating and moisturizing my face looks flawless and does not look like i am wearing makeup, which is very important to me since i think wearing layers of face makeup never looks good. just a light dusting covers up any imperfections...i'm so happy with it! but now that someone recommended Everyday Minerals I want to try that next!

thanks. well i only get oily on t-zone and chin. which is where my acne usually is. i've tried revlon but it actually made my skin breakout everywhere. i have yet to find a foundation that works well with my skin
i was thinking of trying Everyday minerals since there were many good reviews on here and the shipping on the free sample kit is only 4 bucks. thanks for the help though,AlaFramboise!

Be aware. There are many similar articles on the web about the potential dangers of bare minerals makeup. I love many of their products but am tossing them out!

Question: Is mineral-based make-up safer for you than make-up bought at drug stores or department stores? Most of the mineral-based make-up contains titanium dioxide and/or silica, and some contain iron of some type. Is this okay for your skin? I am wondering how such make-up is absorbed into the body, too!
Answer: Like all cosmetics, mineral-based products raise more questions about their safety than answers. Many mineral-based make-ups contain (or potentially contain) nano-size ingredients, which are 10 to 1,000 times smaller than their normally-sized counterparts and are more likely to be absorbed into the body through the skin because they're so small. (See EWG's research on nano-materials.)

One recent study by the National Center for Toxicological Research found that nano-sized particles could be detected throughout the lymphatic system within minutes after being deposited in the skin of mice. And once nano-particles are absorbed by the body, studies to date suggest that they are quite damaging--for instance, they can cause emphysema-like symptoms when absorbed into the lungs and are toxic to a variety of cells. In short, it is a good idea to avoid inhaling mineral-based cosmetics--be careful to not create dust, as particles can quickly absorb deep into the lungs--and avoid using them on damaged skin where the likelihood of absorption is dramatically increased.
As for the second part of the question, we have a limited understanding of the ingredients titanium dioxide, silica, and iron, as used in cosmetics. (Click on each ingredient to learn more about what we do know in our cosmetics database, Skin Deep.) Why don't we know more? Because the FDA doesn't require companies to test their own products for safety. If you think that's ridiculous, sign our petition to the FDA urging them to set safety standards when it comes to the products we all use every day.

Bare Minerals contains something called Bismuth and that is probably why it made your skin look so shiny. Check out this link to learn more about Bismuth. It is also the likely cause most people get skin irritations from wearing BM. http://www.themineralmakeup.com/mine...de/07/13/2006/


Oh and to chel4mdavali I recommend you go to themineralmakeup.com and see the reviews there and pick what's right for you. Most mineral makeup brands have free samples you can order and everyone's skin reacts in a different way to other brands of mineral makeup.

I've been using BE for a couple of years but am itching for a change. After reading all the glowing reviews of EM I've decided to give it a try. I just ordered the free sample kit and I can't wait

I love love love it! 100x better than Bare Escentuals, IMO. I had to get 2 free sample kits in order to find the right foundation. I ended up getting the Intensive formula foundation (the name scared me at first, but it looks amazing on). I use much less, the coverage is more natural, it wears better/longer, and it doesn't irritate my skin. I am so happy I switched to EM! Highly recommended

I think mineral makeup makes me break out. I recently ordered a sample from Everyday Minerals, and I've had the worst acne experience ever... in my entire life. I have never had such a horrible break-out. I'm hoping that this is actually b/c my period is coming soon and not an effect of the make-up. I've stopped using it, but I'll try it again after my period.

How do you guys store your kabuki brush ?
I got mine from MAC in a flimsy plastic container that isn't going to hold it much longer..

I haven't seen any kabuki pouches anywhere..

I don't know if you would want to invest in a new brush entirely, but my tarte kabuki brush came in a cute, purple, faux crocodile skin case
