I've been to the store and was tempted to buy it, but really, I don't know when it says it has minerals. What kind of minerals do these make up brands have? Does it have mineral oil in it?

    Mineral makeup is supposed to be an alternative to the other typical creams and liquids that doesn't clog pores. In some cases you could fall asleep in it and not have to worry about breaking out. Looks more natural, yadda yadda yadda...it's good, admittedly, and it doesn't cake up and even doesn't wear off for awhile depending on what brand you get. It can be expensive though.
