I have a question.... how come I can wear 'traditional' cosmetics like liquid foundation by covergirl, loreal, w/e, and it contains bismuth, but it doesn't bother my skin. But when I wear MMU, like bareminerals or isadora, it irritates my skin and makes it itchy?? It doesn't seem fair... wah. Is there a reason for this??
