I have been using various brands including Bare Escentuals which are quite expensive.

I came across this website www.jackymac.co.uk and their products are fantastic and very reasonably priced.

If you've never used mineral foundation before I can highly recommend it!
It is so easy to apply, looks and feels so natural and is very good for sensitive skin.

Looks good like how they do sample pots.

Yes and the sample pots are very generous. You only need a really small amount so lasts for ages.

You can use the eyeshadows wet as eyeliner or for a more intense colour.

This is the best mineral make up I have used.

I can honestly say that their foundation is better than Bare Escentuals which is much more expensive and the store owner is really helpful and nice.

She puts a little colour corrector in with your make up so you can change the shade if you want. Handy for if we ever get a tan!!:confused

They are good but a good bit more expensive aren't they?

Does mineral makeup have staying power.
By that i mean (eg) Do you have to be constantly re-applying the lipstick.

You won't actually get 'mineral' lipstick although companies who make mineral make up will have lipsticks without any of the nasties.Don't know about the staying power as don't wear lipstick much.
If you want a lipstick which stays on all day then Laura Geller has a lip tint which you can get from QVC. It stays on all day and you can even go swimming in it.

Have you a link to a website for this please.

It is www.qvcuk.com The Laura Geller Lip Tint is called Pucker and Pout.
It has mixed reviews but, the good thing about QVC, is you can try it for 30 days and return it if you don't like it.

Speaking of Laura Geller -- I love her products but the spackle she offers is wonderful. You put it on after your moisturizer and let it dry thoroughly before applying makeup. Your makeup will look fresh all day long.

I thought it looked good so will try it now. Thanks!:D

She has a great TSV on QVC today with 'baked' make up, mascara and brushes for only 30. Love a bargain!

the lily lolo in gorgeous isn't expensive at all and they have a good range of colours and really trendy eye colours. I saw it on the programme how toxic for you as an alternative to make up with chemicals.

I am so glad you liked it and agree that it is so good to not feel your wearing make up and your skin can breathe.
