    I use (and LOVE) Everyday Minerals. I was really skeptical about loose powder makeup at first (I formerly used Clinique), but I couldn't be happier with the look and feel of EDM. The coverage is great: my sister has acne scars and EDM covers them well. They provide excellent coverage, with a very natural finished look.

    The cost is really cheap for the quality of the makeup. I think it's $12.00 for the large (6gram) foundation and finishing powder, and $8.00 for a large blush. I can order a foundation, finishing powder, and eyeshadow + shipping, for the price I'd pay for my foundation alone at Clinique. It lasts a long time too. I only have to reorder about every 2-3 months.

    They also have a "try it free" kit: you pick 3 foundations, 1 blush, and (I think) 1 finishing powder, and all you pay is $4.95 for shipping!

    Oh, and have I mentioned their brushes?! Luxurious! Comfortable on the skin, and very easy to clean.

    I love Everyday Minerals!! I don't know how I went so long without them--and no, they didn't pay me to write this. :toothy8:

    I used BE for a whole year without knowing I was allergic to it! LOL. I had never warn face makeup so I thought the itchy was just my face not used to having makeup on. I was wrong. It was the Bismuth apparently. EM has none of this and like SoCal mentioned, its within a budget. And the sample pack is great! I didn't know they still did that.

    I don't use it anymore because my skin is more normal- dry, and mineral make up seems too dry no matter how much I moisturize.

    Does theallnaturalface.com post ingredients anywhere? They're not with the products and I couldn't find any ingredients page with a search. How annoying, they look like great products but if I can't see an ingredients list, I'm not touching them.
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:

    Although I don't think she ever posts a traditional quantity-based ingredient list, her etsy page [ http://www.etsy.com/shop/theallnaturalface and ESPECIALLY [URL="http://www.etsy.com/people/theallnaturalface]"]http://www.etsy.com/people/theallnaturalface[/URL] ] does talk more about what ingredients she uses.

    Here is an excerpt of what the owner says:
    "My mission is to provide you with the best mineral cosmetics possible. I do not use any artificial ingredients. No bismuth, no talc, no carmine, no silk powder, no d & c lake colors and no parabens!

    ALL OF MY MINERAL PRODUCTS ARE VEGAN! [...]

    Mineral makeup is a modern day miracle. I have never I wanted to provide a clean product that is not available in the commercial products on the shelf. They all seem to have unnecessary evils in them: ) I strive to provide my clients with the purest ingredients. Read my profile to see what ingredients are that are put in to most mineral cosmetics. Note I do not use all the ingredients listed...the list is for reference only. I only use minerals, mica, sunscreen, and oxides. I am convo friendly and very open to answering technical questions...ask away!"


    I have her powder foundation, angel wings mineral veil, midas concealer and lip plumper (Don't think it plumps all that much, but it tastes nice and leaves my lips ridiculously soft!) I also have a blush sampler I'm going through. The quality is sooooo nice. She can take awhile to ship things depending on how many orders she has to fill, but she is very nice and I haven't had a problem with her yet.

    Tip: I like applying the foundation and then spritzing with Thayer's Witch Hazel Toner with Aloe Vera to seal (I buy mine at GNC.) It leaves such a nice finish!

    By the way, your siggie is hilarious! :D

    Thanks for the reply - since she says she's very open to questions, maybe I'll send her a message asking for ingredients of specific products. :)

    And to the bolded - heehee, thank you! It's the only one I haven't wanted to change!
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:
