I've been using Bare Minerals for years but I'm looking to switch to something else. I find their foundation to be too drying for & I'm also not thrilled with the ingredients.

Any suggestions? I'm open to a foundation that is not a powder but I think for now I prefer powders - just something with moisture & no talc.

I used Everyday Minerals for a while. I think their formulas tended to be better for sensitive skin than Bare Minerals.

I love the stuff I get from the all natural face.  So many colors, no crappy ingredients.  I got samples, found good colors and we've been friends ever since then.  :)

I got some zuzu mineral makeup from New Seasons Market and like it much better than Bare Escentuals.

Another vote for Everyday Minerals. My skin is super sensitive and Bare Minerals made it itch like crazy.

I liked Everyday Minerals when I used it, and then I switched to PureNatural mineral makeup (on Etsy) and I love it.

AlimaPure is by far my favorite.  I found Bare Minerals to be total crap.  I drove 70mi to the nearest retail store to buy it and the next weekend drove back to return it.  The bismuth made my face shiny and itchy and the mineral veil has parabens, IIRC.  That was about 5 yrs ago, so they may have changed.  Alima is crushed rocks.  And nothing else.  In the spirit of fairness, I detest Alima's lip products and the only lipstick I wear is Bare Minerals 100% stuff.

Faerie Organics has great mineral makeup. I used to use Bare Minerals too and kept breaking out. Finally figured out it was the bismuth - yuk

I like EcoGlo Minerals. I used to use Everyday Minerals until I got a Groupon for EcoGlo. I'm pretty sure it's a WAHM business (correct me if I'm wrong), and there are deals regularly on Facebook and Groupon for good deals.
