I got tired of the shine I was getting in my Jane Iredale loose powder, and the color I had been using was starting too look a little off for my skintone.
I have just started playing with Illuminare' liquid mineral makeup. It comes in 3 finishes -- dewy, semi-matte and matte. They have a sampler of 3 of their "best selling shades" in all 3 finishes, for $10. If, by chance, you might be their Sienna Sun color, let me know. That shade is definitely too dark for me (I haven't even broken the seal on the samples). If the shade can work for you, PM me and I will be glad to send you the 3 samples in that shade.
