For those who like the loose mineral products, I have found myself both blush and bronzer that I like.
Since I have been having some success with bareMinerals, I went with them again in first selecting a bronzer: "Faux Tan Matte," with "matte" as the magic word.
I purchased it on Amazon and I received something that looks a tad more orange than it does on the BE website, but it does the job, contouring while lacking sparkle, with the barest minimum. That stuff is seriously pigmented.
At the same time I scanned BE for a matte blush. I decided to browse through their pink eyeshadows instead, since there was more options in the matte department. I settled on "Frolic," and also bought it from BE through Amazon.
However, despite being called "matte," it possessed a blinding pearlized sheen. How in heck was this matte? I sent a huffy email back demanding a refund.
I then hit the 'net again, and after much squinting and comparing, clicked on L.A. Minerals Lush Blush in "Cheerleader." It is described as being the "Perfect matte girly girl pink shade of blush." This time I emailed the company first to confirm that it is, in fact, matte, which they soothingly did. I bought it on Amazon as well. And lo, the blush arrived, bright and matte.
For those who prefer tamer shades, I would highly recommend it. "Cheerleader" adds life to cheeks subtly, but one can build up to whatever shade desired.
