They are all very similar.....very nice mineral makeups. I've tried BE and JI, but not Glominerals. I personally liked JI better than BE, but then could not use JI either b/c I had a reaction to the bismuth that is in there. (yucky rash and a mad case of the itchies!)

If you check out this site (you do have to register, tho) guarantee you will find about a thousand mineral lines and owners just dying for you to try their products. Much of the time the prices are much more reasonable than BE and JI. The mineral crafters over there put their heart and soul in their mmu, they have some great products and they ALL have samples for you to try. Here I go again, but I'm always raving about Aromaleigh. (They have their own site I see you're from Beantown so you can order from them too. They are my favorite mineral foundation!!! Feels like silk going on and I've had no problems with it.

Good luck! Be warned - it's overwhelming over there!!! Let me know if I can be of any help!

I think it's a personal choice. I prefer JI and GloMinerals. Both seem to me to be less "pearly" looking on application than the BE (unless you use Mineral Veil on top). I also prefer a pressed formula as I find it easier to get the right amount on the brush.

I agree its personal choice but after using both BE and JI I also prefer JI. Application is soooo much easier and less messy and the satiny finish is just as I like. When I want a more dewy look I use BE clear radiance on top of my JI foundation.

The JI handi brush is a necessity and make sthe application really easy.

I like the JI pressed and liquid minerals. Colours vary between the different formulas so be sure to test them before buying. Powder samples can be purchased at for $3 each, and they're the size of a MAC eyeshadow and last a couple of weeks
