Anyone tried it? What do you think? I have been looking at that one and Urban Decay at Sephora. Just curious. I have previously tried Meow (too dry for me), Everyday Minerals and Aromaleigh.

    I'm interested in trying it, but not on my face.

    I was like what? What do you mean not on your face. LOL! :laughing8: I didn't mean that one. Actually that one didn't get real good reviews. I meant this one.

    They're probably not using it the right way :wink:

    After looking into it further, I see that the Lancome I was looking at has bismuth in it and that's a no no for me. Makes me itch. So I am going to try the new Bare Escentuals Matte because it has no bismuth. And the lady at Sephora told me that they will have a house brand coming this summer with no bismuth and at a cheaper price point than Bare Escentuals. That's exciting because I love most all of the Sephora house brand.

    are any of the sephora house brands pressed instead of loose?

    They do have a mineral pressed powder foundation

    I searched the other day and found that powder. What turned me off was the ethylhexyl palmitate. It's a 4/5 on the comedogenic list. I really like the pur I've been using so I'll probably just stick to that. I was trying to get away from the bismuth, but honestly, it doesn't seem to affect me at all in their formulation.

    I just try to avoid bismuth because it is in Bare Minerals and it made me itch like all get out and it took me several days to get it calmed down. Nasty stuff. But I would lay odds that it has been in makeup I have used before and I didn't know it and didn't itch. It was just the Bare Minerals that was bad.

    The non-bismuth Bare Minerals doesn't cover as well and I broke out from it. Super frustrating. I have a sample of liquid mineral from Illuminare coming. We'll see how that does.
