The Real Techniques brushes from Ulta are pretty nice, and not super expensive. If you want to splurge I hear good stuff about the Teddy Bear Hair brushes from Too Faced, plus they're pretty.

I was going to suggest the Real Techniques brush too. All the brushes are brilliant.

I think Sephora should have Too Faced brushes.

Bumping this since I am in some serious need of powder foundation.

I have been a fan of Bare Essentials for years. Seriously, that shiitake changed my face, in a really good way. Breakouts gone, even glow yadda yadda.

Anyways, I learned they are owned by some evil, animal testing company. I would like to change, my huge supply I purchased long ago (no it is not expired, but it was on sale) is coming to an end.

I don't really like the ELF stuff (shame, I do like a lot of their other products.)

I want to stay away from Urban Decay

I do like other items from Tarte, but gosh they are expensive. Perhaps I can go to Sephora and try it on. Then, if I like it, next time there is a 20% off sale at Sephora, I can stock up.

I was also looking at Everyday Minerals http://www.everydayminerals.com/store/b ... matte.html

Anyone have any experience with Tarte or Everyday Minerals? Any other suggestions? I do break out VERY easily, and generally drugstore brands, or any liquid foundations break me out.

I have some Everyday Minerals foundation. It's nice quality and I found a pretty perfect match, which is rare. It doesn't break me out or anything, but I don't usually break out from products. There are a bunch of different finishes to choose from - I like the semi-matte. The nice thing is that you can get samples for super cheap if you just want to test our the formulas.

I've used Everyday Minerals for years and am very happy with their stuff. Definitely try the samples.

My only complaint is that I wish they kept the color names consistent between different finishes, or offered the same shades in all finishes.

Yes this, I did the samples thing for my first order and was very happy, then they came out with the jojoba powders and I misguessed which shade I needed and ended up with one that is too dark.

I really like Alima Pure's loose powder foundation. They have a bazillion shades, and you can order samples for $1.50 each to see what matches. I got a sample kit that came with a kabuki brush, pouch, blush, 20% off coupon for full size, and four foundation samples in my range. The samples are generous, and I still haven't run out of the one that matches. Plus, you can send empty containers back to them for recycling. I have had trouble with stuff either not covering pores or accentuating them, but not with Alima's foundation. Also, they wear well so I have had fewer problems with shine attacks hours later. I have their concealer, too, and while it's not full-coverage, it's pretty good for everyday use.

I'm sad they did away with the $1.50 samples of eyeshadows, since I hardly ever wear them and don't want to buy a full container.

Those samples were great. I miss them, too. And for me, $12.50 feels like too much to pay for an eyeshadow that I haven't gotten to test.

They do usually send you little samples (in baggies) of a couple of eyeshadows or blush, but it's not the same as getting to pick the color!

Yes, that is super annoying! I am Golden Fair or Olive Fair depending on the season, but I was trying to find my match in their new Jojoba Base and it was hopeless. Not only are none of the names the same, none of the colors even came close to matching. I tried every light shade they had available and they were all way too pink, even the ones described as yellow or olive-toned. Boo-urns.

I just ordered the 7-pack of trial sizes from Everyday Minerals - I love trying new things, especially when they're priced like that! <fingers crossed>

I don't have a lot from EDM, but what I have gotten I love. And they always have some kind of deal or package you can get, I don't remember how much it was at the time but I got this brush:

http://www.everydayminerals.com/store/b ... brush.html

And it is my favorite brush, it's super soft and lots of bristles so it's good for blending whatever powders you put on your face.

I second that brush. It is awesome.

The everyday minerals seems good, I got the samples, but they are WAY lighter than I thought they would be! I guess I need to order some more that are darker and/or get a decent bronzer to mix in. But overall I do like it and I will be ordering them and some brushes when I find the right color.

I don't think that they have SPF in them though, it's not on the website.

Now...i have to find a nice, light, cruelty-free SPF moisturizer I can put on in the mornings that won't break me out. Jeez. The searching never ends. The food part of going vegan was a piece of (vegan) cake. Cosmetics, not so much.

Physician's Formula has a tinted moisturizer with SPF, and it looks kind of dark but it's pretty sheer. And the Yes To Grapefruit CC cream has 18 SPF and the light is actually light and cool toned.

I really like the pressed powder from 100% Pure, and it lasts a really long time. The only problem is that unless you live in the Bay Area or Southern California, it's hard to find in stores. I just buy online and hope for the best. So far that has worked out okay most of the time.

hourglass brushes are all vegan and while they're pricey, they're totally worth it.

I got my samples from Everyday Minerals. While I like the feel of them, there's just not enough coverage. I don't want a mask or anything, but I have a few spots that I want to cover, and this just doesn't do it. Oh, well.
