Sheer Cover Mineral Make-Up

entipyentipy Registered Users Posts: 126
I've read through most of the threads on mineral make-up I found on here, and I don't recall seeing anyone mention Sheer Cover. Those of you who use mineral make-up, have you tried it? How does it compare to the others, particularly Everyday Minerals?

I ordered the EM sample kit last night, and I'm very excited and hopeful about getting it. The coverage I get from Sheer Cover is pretty decent, even without a concealer, and from what I've heard about EM, I should be even more pleased with it.

However, I'd like to get some opinions. So, please share! :)

Thanks!

    My Mom has used Sheer Cover for the last 2 years. She uses the face make up and the moisturizer. I must say, her skin always looks nice when she uses it and I can tell when she tries something different.
    I tired the pressed-type powder last summer and it was ok. Nice color but I had a problem with it always comming off.
    My skin is oil/combo where my Mom's is dry/combo.

    I used Cory Minerals 2 years ago. It matched my skin tone but the packaging was terrible for what I paid. Didn't like it well enough either.
    Now I go back and forth between just some Avon Concealer with Loose Powder, Avon or Physicians Formula minerals, or Mary Kay foundation.

    Well, I had to re-apply some of the SC foundation yesterday at lunch, and by the afternoon, it had almost all come off my face. So, I'm certainly not impressed with its lasting capability for me. I'm hoping the EM will fare better and can't wait to get in those samples.

    Thanks for the input. I know things differ from person to person.

    Yep, same thing I had happen to me. My Mom's skin type is different so that might have something to with it's staying power.

    Good luck with your EM ;)

    I am interested to hear about this as well. Thus far I've only used Bare Minerals. I know a lot of people find it to be too shiny and I did also at first. Then I found a better application method. I use a stubby little dense Maybelline eyeshadow brush to spot conceal. It works really really well. Then I only need a light application all over. I am fine to stop at this step but for an even better finish I use a cheap little dense but fluffy travel powder brush I got at CVS or Walmart years ago and never used. I don't put any powder on that brush, I just use to to blend everything together a little better.
    The key with that stuff is skipping that last powder. It'll make you look all shiny and oily. :P I do use it on my eyes as a primer which works well, and occasionally on my cheekbones because I'm not a blush person.
    My set came with the bronzer like powder as well and I always thought it was crap as far as color but I find not that if I mix it with the foundation color and apply very lightly then blend well it works really well.

    Anyway, that's the only one I've tried because it has lasted me a good while and I didn't want to spend any more money until I used it up. Now I'm down to the bottom of my foundation one and kinda freaking because I don't know whether to repurchase or try something new. I can't really afford to try a bunch of them because it's a fairly big purchase for me.

    I can't use traditional foundations/powders at all. :P

    Whoops, I guess this reply really should have been on the Mineral Make-up thread, but I didn't realize that one was so close below this one.
    Terribly sorry! :oops:
