Okay, so I've looked quite a ways back in these threads but I just can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for.

I just got my sample of EM after trying Sheer Cover, and I just can not get mineral makeup to work for me. I use small amounts, I swirl the kabuki around, tap and...powdery face. I buff and buff and it just doesn't go anywhere, even after using mineral veil as a primer. You can see exactly where I put it and it looks...cakey, even after using every single tip I've been able to find and hardly any product. What is going on?? I really want to love this stuff but I can just not get this stuff to work
