I use Dash Minerals, also little known. I order from Kansas and always get a free gift with my order. I will check out Lucy Minerals. There is also another little known called Jordan Essentials.

No, I haven't tried any of the BB creams, but knowing me, it won't be long! I have NO self control when it comes to makeup. Speaking of MM, I recently tried a little known brand, at least to me, just stumbled across it while browsing, called Lucy Minerals. It is different from other mineral makeup, and there is a learning curve when it comes to using it. Their website is lucyminerals.com. It is a small company based in Winter Haven Florida, their customer service is great, and yes, they will mix shades to help their customers get the right shade for their skin. And no I don't work for them, just ordered some, and am VERY happy with it. They have 3 or so different formulas for oily, etc skin. Best part? $14! And little trial sizes for 2 bucks!! Unbelievable!

Since we mentioned BB Cream, its ad was at the top of this page. It has flashed to back pain now. Funny!

No, I have not tried the BB cream but I do like Smashbox.
I love my mineral makeup! It is messy but I get good results.

Hi, ladies! I'm happy to be here!
I have loved make up for as long as I can remember. My mother says one of my first words was lipstick, lol. (or "lippick", as I used to call it...now I pronounce it correctly, I'm happy to report).
One of my newer purchases is this Smashbox BB cream. I bought it at Sephora.com. I read the reviews (which were good) and made a choice from the many different tints, and though the cream looks a bit more yellow that I thought would look good on my skin, it is actually a very nice choice. I have basically dry skin with a slightly less dry t-zone. This offers some nice coverage without looking mask-y. I use Revlon photo finish powder over it.
It is not what I'd call a true foundation, but rather a tinted moisturizer. It is a bit tacky upon application, not that smooth liquid you get in true foundation, but I AM liking it so far, and would recommend it.
I am also going to buy Garnier's new BB cream. It's supposed to be at least $20 cheaper than Smashbox, and the reports rolling in are good ones.
Have any of you tried any of the BB creams?
