Yes. It is important to wait for it to dry a couple minutes. It is easier to apply the minerals and you get a more even application.

I love Jane Iredale Amazing Base Mineral Makeup. I've tried a number of others, but now just stick with the one that works best on my skin.

Also love Jane Iredale lip balm.

I apply my cream then brush & floss my teeth. That amount of time seems to work perfectly for me.

All I can tell you is those mineral makeups stain towels and washcloths..big time. I ruined so many linens that I don't care how good it is, I'm never buying it again.

wow - I haven't had a problem with mine.

It dusts the sink so I have to wipe it down everyday. I rinse most of it out with water first before wiping it with a cloth. (I have white towels).

Mineral Secrets doesn't stain any towels or linens. But I do have to clean the powdery residue left on the counter top and sink, but it cleans very easily.

I've never had it stain sheets or towels, either--but the sink? Mine will do that too if I'm not careful.

I've used Bare Minerals for awhile & ran out & decided to switch. I found Ulta brand of mineral makeup to be just as good & 1/2 the price of Bare Minerals. Though I do like the 'warmth' color for Bare Minerals--still have that & it can give you a nice glow.

I just tried Pur mineral makeup from ulta because I was out of Bare Minerals and was tired of mixing two colors together to get a match. I got Pur in Light, which is a perfect color for me. It is pressed, with shea butter as the binder, but for my skin, that's fine.I will always use the Bare Minerals Glee as my blush and complexion booster ,it is a great color for sallow brunettes. It's all messy compared to liquid, and I have to put my contact lenses in after or they get ruined.

I recently bought bare mineral make up. And it feels nice and looks good but I think it makes my skin breaks out for some reasons!?

Some people are sensitive to the bismuth in the product and it causes them to break out, you might want to try a brand without it, there are several mineral make ups that have no bismuth in them.
