Everyday Minerals

Intensive Base

Good Coverage

I've tried Bare Minerals in both the original and matte formula and they cannot compare to EM's intensive base. Although Bare Minerals is a much more finely milled than EM, it doesn't provide as much coverage. The intensive formula provides the most coverage of EM's formulas. What I also noticed is that EM's intensive formula tends to be darker than their original glo, semi-matte, and matte. My face tends to get pretty oily 3-4 hours after applying, whereas with BM, my face gets oily within an hour or two. Another thing I love about EM is that I get my money's worth. There is about the same amount of product in each full sized foundation for both brands, but EM costs $12 and BM costs $25-28 (depending on the formula - original or matte). Another difference that may make or break one's decision to choose EM is that it doesn't contain SPF, whereas BM contains SPF 15. This isn't a big deal for me because I put on a moisturizer with SPF before applying my foundation. Overall, I love EM's foundation. I have been using it for 4-5 years now and it hasn't failed me!

love it

i have hard to match fair but olive toned skin, by mixing the free samples that came i got a perfect color... it's light and you can choose if you like matte, semi matte or "glow" which is shimmery... great product

I found out about EM last week on twitter from beautylish. I placed my order for my free sample base kit and received the kit a few days later. The intensive base was my favorite! My skin looks flawless and I feel like I am not wearing anything on my face! I have oily skin and have the hardest time finding products that will last on my face. Definitely a must if you have oily skin! I am recommending EM to all my friends and I can't wait to try more products from EM! :)

Great, affordable mineral line

Since I have become pregnant, my skin has been very oily. When I first tried Everyday Minerals, I found that it was drying on my skin. It currently provides the perfect amount of coverage for my face, while controlling my oily skin. I love how well it matches my skin tone as well. Normally, my skin reacts to mineral makeup by making it itch. This has not caused me any irritation. Highly reccomended!

I got this to try since my friend was ranting and raving about it (Chris D. in the vid above) so I decided to order some. I'm not a huge fan of powers cause I in general just really love liquid foundation. But I do like to use this if I'm in a super hurry for some easy quick coverage :)
