The only one I like is Mary Kay. I buy it on ebay at about half price of the listed price. Its the only one that feels right.
I've tried both Covergirl and Loreal, and they both felt icky. The MK foundation seems like it rubs in, not just sits on top of my skin, KWIM?

That's important to me as well. Most of my makeup is UD.

I just purchased a Dell laser printer for 50% off through a Bzz campaign. You also fill out survey's which helps determines which campaigns would be good for you.

I've done a fair amount of research on foundations and everything I've read is that for those with dry skin, you should be using a cream foundation. Maybe that's why you that tried switching from Bare Minerals to liquid didn't like it?

I have been using Smashbox high definition liquid foundation. I really like it, I feel like I still wanna try alot more high end foundations since I have tried alot of drugstore brand foundations. Haven't found one that I LOVE, but Smashbox gets the job done, covers well, and lasts. Just would like to try others as well.

Bare Minerals by Bare Essentials is my absolute favorite. My skin is pretty prone to breakouts. This foundation is so light and it doesn't cause my skin to break out as some liquid foundations I've tried have. I know it's pretty expensive. I think I paid $60 for the starter set but it's worth every penny!

Anything from Laura Gellar or Bobbie Brown always gets my vote.

I love Make Up Forever's liquid foundation and am anxious to try the new Flawless one by Benefit. I also use BE sometimes and a tinted moisturizer other times, just depending on my mood. I'm wanting to try a BB but not sure which one to try first, though I'm leaning towards the Dr. Jart ones.

I use Smashbox Halo foundation with their photo finish primer. Not cheap, but I love how it looks so natural and makes my skin feel so smooth!

I'm using the same. I'm really liking the lightweight feel.

When I use a powder, it's the Jane Iredale pressed mineral makeup. It's definitely nicer than any department store or ULTA brands at the same price point.

Ok, so I am officially too light for the lightest color of most drug store makeups. I am very pale. After reading this thread, I went, inspired, to ULTA. What a nightmare! One lady made me orange and tried to then sell me the orange makeup. It was Napolean brand. I explained to her that it was way too dark for me and she kept explaining that it was the lightest color they made and I could make it work. What? Then a studiogear lady chased me around. I was trying to test the samplers of Urban Decay naked and some other brands, but the pestering of sales people following me around got to me too much. Every time I tried to look at something I had them explaining to me why their brand was better. UGH. I politely said I just want to look around, no thank you a million times! YIKES> They obviously work on commission. So I might try the lancome counter tomorrow I hear they make some super pasty colors that might work. Ulta is on the "never again" list.

I got a set from http://www.etsy.com/shop/MadisonStreetBeauty when they had a sale. $20 for a mineral foundation, blush, highlighter, and setting powder in big jars and four small eyeshadows.
Makes my skin happier than gross bare minerals and supports a small business.

I do moisturizer, eye cream, benefit porefessional, foundation, setting powder.

Anytime I switch my husband notices.
Me too on all counts !
I rarely buy seconds of anything and I'm on to my third BM foundation!
I have rosea and it covers it, as well as a scar on my nose I just use the concealer brush and finish with the big brush.
I buy at Ulta with the $3.50 off coupon when ever they have a combo package or free gift.
I also love the color (bronzer) and mineral veil (finishing powder) the next thing i'm going to try is the redness relief powder.
