We really like the Bare Escentuals line of mineral cosmetics and there are many other great formulations on the market. However, they can be a bit expensive. A discount mineral make up alternative has been introduced by L’Oreal – L’Oreal Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foundation that sells for $12 to $15.
While the new foundation is not 100% mineral ingredients – a few enhancements are added for moisturization, etc. – the makeup is a more natural alternative to the other foundations currently available. It could be considered somewhat of a hybrid. The mineral makeup has an SPF of 19 and provides excellent coverage along with its own application brush… and the brush actually works pretty well!
You can find this product in most drugstores and discount department stores as well as online.
