I am interested in a cream product for under eye concealing and either a liquid concealer or foundation for facial use.

It seems that most of the minerals are powder which I already have. But sometimes I prefer the look of liquid. And I like creams under the eyes and would like to switch to a mineral under eye concealer too. thanks

I like firming liquid minerals foundation from NCN Skincare. You can get samples to try out, but I can't remember if Nanci charges for them. I have combo skin for comparison purposes. She has a sheer tint mineral makeup which I tried but didn't like as well.

I also recommend the firming liquid foundation from NCN skincare.
Another one that's worth trying if you know anybody that sells Arbonne is their Perfecting Liquid foundation with SPF15.
Both look natural and feel weightless yet evens skin tone well.

Raesin Images carries both liquid and cream versions, and has a huge selection of colors.

But as I have mentioned before when recommending this brand, their website is the WORST!

yeah I have read that their customer service isn't so good. Plus that site is so complicated I might accidentally buy the wrong thing.

I was surprised to find that I couldn't wear the very light shade in the firming minerals. I'm so fair I usually wear lightest in every brand. But the light/med worked better for me. That's why it's best to get some samples first.

I land right between light and medium and neutral works great for my skin so it's pretty easy for me to go by the charts! Smile I bet that's not a great help, sorry! Embarassed

DarkMoon, how does raesinimages' powders compare to bareMinerals, purMinerals, and colorscience and other mineral powders?

Does Orb has already some color to it ? I really like the idea that "applies like silk" Very Happy

I want to find a mineral sunscreen in powder form just like Orb but with some coverage as well so that I will not have to apply MMU on top of it. Or do I want too much? Confused

Raesinimages has powders in several forms: Xtreme, Extraordinary, Transform and Illuminization. Which one do u use and like?

I'm pretty sure NCN's are from essential wholesale (same ingredients) http://www.essentialwholesale.com/s.nl/sc.9/category.24882/.f

I have not tried hers, but I did use glominerals liquid mineral foundation for a short time. I just felt like it was too mask like, and returned to my good old Revlon Colorstay.

I ordered samples first...I am fairly light skinned (but not ultra light) with a yellow undertone and the W2 was a better match than anything else I tried (including other brands).

Prior to using RI, I used BE in the Fairly Light color, but was allergic to the bismuth.

Ok, I ordered a few samples, so let's wait!
I've chosen W2 and a few similar tones.

If you are interested in some of the natural brands such as Living Nature, Logona, Nvey Eco, Beauty Wise, Real Purity, Suncoat etc., holisticbeauty.net is great for purchasing samples.
