I just ordered samples of "Cowgirl Dirt" a mineral powder foundation that has jojoba oil in it... as I've said -- powders usually make me dry, but I'm intrigued by mineral foundations.... and at 99 cents for a sample for three trys, I'm willing to go for it again.

But one review I found said that she had dry skin and didn't like mineral foundations and she loved this stuff -- all she hated abut minerals didn't happen with this....

And frankly -- it's all this thread's fault -- I started looking again...

Got the "dirt" today and buffed a little on -- so far -- no dryness... but I'm waiting. In my opinion the trial sizes were very generous -- since I like very light coverage, they are far more than one - three uses for me. Also on the website it was very clear what the shades were -- cremello is cool, champagne is neutral and the other one I can't remember was warm. Picked the right shade on the first try. Also it's not shiny... there's a glow to it but since there's no bismuth, it's not that tin man look I see with BM.

Check Ebay. There are a lot of British gals selling Max Factor.

I'm absolutely in love with Givenchy Photo Perfection. It's so expensive but it works for me (it provides decent coverage without being heavy/cakey/tacky feeling, stays put ALL DAY but washes off easily, doesn't clog my pores!). Everything else seems inferior to it though, used to love Clinique and Almay foundations but now they feel cheap and gross on my skin.

I'm thinking of trying Lancome or Dior (I've heard MAC foundations are notorious for causing breakouts). Does anyone have any suggestions?

I've always eyeballed the Revlon Colorstay, but the few times I've used Revlon products on my face I've broken out horribly.

Lancome is great for over 40 skin. I use their skin care, and my face is loving it.

I use Guerlain Primer - L'Or Radiance and find myself always going back to Revlon ColorStay liquid foundation. (And Cle de Peau concealer)

I just tried the Revlon ColorStay Creme foundation this past Saturday night and liked it, but one night isn't enough for me to really give a strong review or opinion on it.

Laura Mercier makes one of the best primers.

Makeup Forever HD Foundation in 117 marble (winter) or 120 soft sand (summer).

I have oily, acne prone skin with huge pores that is a light color, but with an olive tone (hard to find color matches). This makeup wears well, covers well, and doesn't feel heavy. It also photographs great. It doesn't have spf, so you don't get "pale face" in photos (I do use an spf moisturizer, which interestingly doesn't cause the same effect).

I notice people who don't have oily skin don't like this as much though. My sister has "normal" skin & actually hates it. She has an easy time matching her peaches and cream complexion though.

My other favorite foundation is Everyday Minerals Matte foundation in Olive Fair (for winter, with a light dusting of Olive Medium in summer). This also wears well on oily skin, covers well, yet doesn't feel heavy.

I keep trying LM products, but find myself disappointed with them all.

I'm surprised you don't breakout with the MUFE HD. I rarely breakout or have reactions from makeup and every time I use the MUFE HD, I get pimples. I'm a MUFE fan and used their other foundations regularly (I use their loose powder daily) and I have a few bottles of the HD, but I keep telling myself I should toss them because I'm never happy with the results, but then I read posts like yours and think to myself "ahhh...maybe I'll give it another shot!" LOL
