    my skin gets red & itchy with makeup. Not like breakouts, just irritation. It doesn't do this with bare minerals.

      Thanks Morgan. I break out. Next thing you know I wake up with a massive pimple!

        I've been using bareminerals for about 4 months and I love it. You can't feel it on but it looks great. Like you are "done" but not "done-up".

          Laura Mercier makes a similar loose mineral powder that's part of their "flawless face" line. I bought it before the wedding and used it and loved it. Not sure about the photos, though, the photographers warned me to be sure not to have anything shiny on my face that could reflect light.

            I have a combo skin type - dry and oily. I wanted to try Bare Essentials - but I was sceptical that a powder would work well with oily skin.
            Does anyone have experience with this?

It turned out great. It wasn't too heavy and it stayed on all day in the hot sun.
              so it photographed well?

                I bought the bare essentials kit at Sephora and at first I loved bare minerals. But after about a month, I noticed I had started to break out. I quit using it and my skin returned to normal. I have really sensitive skin and I have to be careful with what I use. I break out very easily.

                    That is kinda like me. My T-zone is super oily but my face can easily get too dry and flaky. I love b.e. even with my skin. The kit comes with some random lotion that I put on before hand and it helps with the dry parts.

                      I use Bare Minerals and LOVE it. It's true what they say about being able to sleep with it on and not breaking out from it.

                      However, I am using MAC for the wedding b/c I want a more matte finish and the MAC Studio Fix powder foundation works so well with all different types of lighting.
