I hate those new Bare Minerals lids, too. I haven't worn BM foundation in a while, though--I had switched to the Merle Norman mineral makeup, and liked it. It has a nice glow to it. This time I decided to try Meow, but it's taking FOREEEEEEVER to ship, and meanwhile, I'm out of foundation. My mom had a sample of Everyday Minerals to get me through, and I have to say, I'm loving it. I may order Everyday Minerals next time.
