Hi everyone I'm trying to figure out if i should bye the luminess air or the bare minerals I've never used any of these types of cosmetics and would like some advise. One of my friends told me that bare minerals is best a day makeup while airbrush would work best for nights or special events. Is this true? Should I get both or is one better than the other?

Ive only tried bare minerals- use the face powder everyday- with their brushes (all bought at hideously inflated Confused Australian prices in Dept store here BEFORE I discovered EDS..)I find the coverage is great, you can stack on a bit more if you have more to cover, or evenings and it looks really natural and if you are the kinda girl who would Embarassed EEK like just perhaps not wash her face everynight before slipping into bed- no dramatic post makeup breakouts happen, hurrah

My sister is really fond of Bare minerals. She is 29, with very oily and sensitive skin. She says she loves this powder because it never clogs her pores, and does not add any irritation/breakouts. I, on the other hand, never got myself to buy it because it just seems a bit messy to me -- the loose powder, the special brushes, etc, etc..

I have the Luminess Airbrush and I absolutely love it. I have oily skin so I use their Matte foundation. Absolute best foundation I have ever used. I'm super picky about things I put on my face since I have oily skin and foundations add more weight (not sure this is the best descriptive word). With using the Matte Luminess makeup my skin feels "dry" all day. Which is an absolute dream for someone with oily skin. I would say the cons with Luminess is that the little bottles leak when I have traveled. This might also have been a user error. Smile

I HATE Bare minerals. I have dry skin and it only sinks into my dry spots and wrinkles and accentuates them. I should have known not to put powder on dry skin but I thought since everybody is using it, it must be good....wrong!!!
I really have wanted to try Luminess Air for literally 2 yrs. It surely would look flawless like the "stars" on tv.
Just my opinion..btw, my skin is 47 yrs old.

Evansmama, I completely agree. I have dry skin and it probably looks worse than any other foundation I've ever tried, next to Mary Kay but don't get me started on that one. Bad Grin

Even the salesperson was like "Ohhhhh." after she applied it. The color matches are terrible (Fair? Medium? I have friends of different ancestry and undertones that would be the same "shade" as me, just because they put fair on the package doesn't mean it'll match). The texture made me look like I was made of chalk.

Ava with wings, I guess I watch too many infomercials and believe every word they say. I thought since it was "minerals" instead of powder, that it wouldn't lay in my wrinkles. I was told by a friend of mine that there are other mineral foundations I could try but I NEVER WILL!
I really would like to see what I look like with airbrush makeup though ;o)

I have oily and acne prone skin and when I used to use Bareminerals my skin looked really smooth and nice. My skin was not irritated by the powders. The reason why I stopped using it is because I've noticed that I would get more blackheads around my nose area -- these blackheads never got inflammed though.

Bare minerals, it offers very good light coverage.
