    Minerals can offer great coverage - you can usually determine the level of coverage based on how much you buff into your skin. At currently I've got 3 brands that I use - Yuva, Priori and Dottie and Ez. Dottie and Ez is my favourite, and it's got kaolin clay and silica powder in there, which is great for oilier skins (these 2 ingredients absorb oil - they're often used in skincare products).

    You can order samples as well for a few bucks, to see which colour is going to suit you best.http://www.allnaturalmakeup.com.au/m...Pack-Fair-Skin

    I use AVON Smooth Minerals liquid make-up. I have oily skin, occasional pimples & some scarring. It gives me really good coverage, stops my skin from getting oily during the day & I find I get fewer pimples on my face now (I still get some on my neck). In summer I sometimes also use the AVON mineral powder as my skin gets a bit more oily. I found that powder alone didn't give me quite enough coverage and didn't quite feel or look right. I think a slightly "dewy" look is more natural and youthful, but that's just my personal opinion. I tried several brands before settling on the AVON stuff (which is much cheaper).

    Minerals are great for sensitive skin. Just check the ingredients and make sure it's less than 6 and that one of those ingredients IS NOT bismuth oxychloride. That's the ingredient put into some minerals that can irritate some skins.

    Easy way is to look at your wrist and your veins. If your veins look more blue, then you're a pinky undertone. If they look green, then you're a yellow. If you can't tell which it is, you may be neutral. I'm a neutral, with a slight lean towards pink.

    Often, if you're caucasian (a white person), think of what happens if you go in the sun for 20 minutes without sun protection. Do you burn, or do you tan? If you're more likely to burn, then you're probably pink... if you're more likely to tan, you're probably yellow.

    Easiest way to double check is to just try some shades. Compare the foundation shades you use to the others in the range... is it more pink or more yellow?

    Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Mica,Bismuth Oxychloride, Nylon-12, Methylparaben, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Kaolin, Lauryl Pca, Zinc Pca, Phenyl Trimethicone, Sodium Pca, Lecithin, Urea, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Trehalose, Polyquaternium-51, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Atelocollagen, Beta-Carotene, Retinyl Palmitate, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Tocopherol

    That's in the Avon minerals. FAR from a true mineral. True minerals will not have all that crap in them... 6 ingredients max.

    Thanks for the ingredient listing sassy I didnt think they were from memory. They even contain parabens and bismuth :/ Its clever marketing calling it mineral make up but its not the pure stuff.

    I use Vani-T mineral powder and this is the ingredient list..

    Mica, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, isopropyl myristate, silica, topherol, squalene, tin oxide, iron oxides

    Anyone worried about the potential effects to your lungs by breathing in these particles. fine particles are bad for your lungs. any good liquid mineral foundations out there

    It would be in such small amounts.

    Im thinking of switching to a liquid as the powder is a bit messy.

    Those that use liquids what do u use to apply it?
