I'm new to mineral make up but a sales lady told me that you need some kind of base for all mineral foundations (she said to just use a lotion- either sunscreen or moisturizer) and any type would work. I have yet to experiment but it's worth a try and not as expensive as some alternatives.
I was stopped by a sales lady yesterday as well (and just joined now after searching to see if I got ripped off or something). I saw someone was being sold the face cream for like, 200, and now I don't feel so bad since the lady really did give me a good deal on that, but I paid a bit more on other things (lower than listed price). I was wondering if they give you deals on things even if it's not your first buy from them, since I was considering going back for more eye shadows to try different colors. I ended up spending like, 150 for foundation, blush, 4 eyeshadows, face cream, and a brush. I would say if you do end up buying, don't look interested and they will lower the price for you. And look at online prices first because they will probably match it at least. Ebay also has stuff on sale, so that is worth checking out as well. I haven't really had much chance to play with it, but the look on my boyfriend's face after the sales lady applied it kind of encouraged me to get it. Plus it didn't end up on his white shirt, and the lip gloss didn't end up on his face so that is a definite plus. I also liked how it got rid of all the redness that took lots of green concealer and loads of liquid foundation before. It is my first time using mineral foundation though, so I don't know if those traits are typical.
