I know you said you don’t want to use liquid foundation, but I use the Bare Minerals liquid and I absolutely lovvvvvvvve it. It comes out liquid but has a matte finish. I don’t get the statue effect at all. Just great coverage!

Hmm. I haven’t tried it yet (hello Xmas shopping!) but I’ve heard rave reviews about Faerie Organics? Maybe someone else here can tell us if it’s any good!

SLOBee:  Yeah, some liquids STINK. I have noticed that with Covergirl. I use liquid TrueMatch Foundation by Loreal. I really enjoy the coverage.

It’s not mineral but Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Powder foundation is very nice. It’s made without parabens, and it vegan & gluten-free. The sponge has two sides, so you can just powder it on normally, or you can wet the sponge and apply (gives a bit darker shade that way). And some people say they prefer to use their brushes with it too, and it works great that way.

I switched from Bare Minerals to Everyday Minerals and my skin loves me for it. I use the semi-matte, but they also have a matte version. You can get samples on their website to try it out and color match. 🙂

Have you tried the Original Bare Minerals formula?  That’s the one I use, as the Matte formula was also giving my skin a terrible look.  I also like the Complexion Rescue, it doesn’t any scent that I’ve noticed.

SLOBee:  GloMinerals!!! Love love love. My dermatologist recommended it and matched me at the office, and then I buy it on Amazon.
