Mineral Makeup

I went to acupuncture yesterday and Lynda worked her magic on me.. she is absol. fantastic! Check her out here:

After a treatment and some chinese herbal meds (tablet form: actually they look like little bullets of which Im supp to take 12 tablets twice daily). Orville is concerned, cuz he thinks I might rattle when he sees me this weekend... then the thought of having his own personal maraca brightened his day. Silly boy.

Anyway, back to original story, I have purchased some mineral makeup from the Salon which my acupunture treatments are. I used it last night and today, and I must say, it really feels like I dont have makeup on AT ALL, plus i liked the look of it this morning as I headed out the door, I did a nice healthy look of makeup... i was impressed. Its now 2pm, and I dont feel ANY oil in my t-zone and there isnt any heaviness on my skin either, esp when I compare it to using other "conventional" foundation.

Have any of you used a mineral makeup before? Whats your thoughts? I really like that "free of preservatives, talc, oil, fragrance and other harmful chemicals. The i.d. bareMinerals formula provides impeccable coverage for every skin type and skin tone, and protects with a natural sunscreen" is what I am putting on my face. I was really suprised at how well it covered without looking cakey or all done up. Plus, it was nice to be able to know that I wasnt slathering myself in toxins.

Pricewise? Well, I compared it, and its comparable to what I would spend on conventional.

Let me know your thoughts. Like or Dislike? Tips or hints?

I used to be all about Mineral make up, now I'm using Laura Mercier flawless face and I like it much better. The mineral makeup wears off too quickly for me.

I've just started using revlon Colorstay Mineral Makeup, and it's terrific. feels like you're wearing nothing, and it's staying power really is good. so much easier than messing around with liquids, and creams that leave your face feeling oily and cakey.i'M A CONVERT.

I looked at Revlon Colorstay Minerals as well. Glad you like it... I was thinking I might try that after my current batch of products run out.

I love how the mineral makeup actually helps my skin rather than clog it and seep into my skin with all the waxes and crap in the products.

From one convert to another... hooray for us on finding a comfy makeup!
