Does mineral makeup (foundation) come in liquid form? I am finding that my face is looking too powdery...

If your face is looking too powdery you may be applying too much or applying it to a "dry" face. Try adding lotion beforehand or exfoliating your face the day before.

But yes it does come in liquid form, although I do not know of any good brands that sell it.

Thanks sedirea- I do use moisturizer, so should I apply the foundation when my moisturizer is still moist or just right after it has dried?

But I would definatly reccomend trying some samples from them.
Thanks! I think I'll get some samples then I'm using Estee Lauder Double Wear at the moment and looking for something lighter and non-liquid! Double Wear is a bit heavy for everyday wear

Mineral Makeup
It seems like these mineral makeups are a booming business now. Everyone from the small artisinal makeup entrepreneurs to the established ones like Bare Minerals, drugstore brands to now the mainstream big time cosmetic companies have mineral makeup if they don't specialize in it.

I guess Bare Essentuals started it years ago but now it's everywhere. I decided not to use BE after using it for about a year because it had Mica in it. That gave me a weird greyish cast and showed up in pictures. I have found other companies who's powders I like.

What brand do you use? What were your experiences? Why did you end up switching to Mineral makeup and/or why did you stop if you did? Did you find it cost prohibitive over time or a bragain?

I have makeup from Maia's Minerals. I want to try Jane Iredale but I think her makeup has Mica in it too.

I decided to try Lily Lolo mineral foundation. I'm MAC NC15, Bourjois 51, Revlon Color Stay Buff, and I was thinking China Doll or maybe Blondie. Any advice?

I was too impatient and I ordered China Doll right after my first post. I hope China Doll will be suitable. It's the shade between Blondie and Porcelain, rather new I think. At least here, where Lily Lolo is the newest hit.

I use mineral makeup and I LOVE it. I occasionally use liquid found. but it does not compare at all. Once you get the hang of mineral makeup you will never go back. Im on my 4th tub.

LL China Doll is perfect. I'm thrilled about it, I absolutely LOVE IT. I had no idea mineral foundation could give such good coverage. I can build full coverage, but still look natural, how awesome it that.

I'm on my second pot of Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation, but this time I went for Blondie. This foundation is beyond amazing! I think it's high time I tried one of their blushes. Maybe Oh La La or Surfer Girl, I'd like something matte.

Finishing powders are also very tempting.
