Just to be clear: there are two types of mineral makeup that Trish McEvoy offers. There is the pressed version that has bismuth in it and the loose version that does not. This is really important to me since bismuth makes me itch.

I have the loose powder version and as mineral makeup foundation goes, it's pretty good. I use Trish's "The Point" brush to apply and the coverage is not too heavy but it's not too light. It covers my rosacea but still leaves my skin looking natural.

The problem I have with all mineral foundations is time. It take too long to apply it so I usually end up skipping it and slapping some liquid or stick foundation on instead even though mineral foundations provide better sunscreen coverage, are less irritating and (often) contain zinc which calms the skin.

I also can't seem to get past the fact that I'm putting dirt on my face.

As mineral makeup goes, this is one of the two that I've liked (the other being Aromaleigh Glissade) but I think it's time for me to throw in the towel and admit to myself that mineral makeup is just not for me.
