Mineral Makeup: Magic Potion or Marketing Hype?

Mineral makeup is all the rage these days, but why the hype? All makeup is essentially made from minerals, but "mineral makeup" leaves out many of the dyes, perfumes, oils and other ingredients that tend to irritate sensitive skin. It also provides some sun protection, but not enough to forgo a daily coat of sunscreen on your face. 

Many claim that mineral makeup gives a more natural appearance than the standard foundation or loose powder, while others complain that it settles into fine lines. You be the judge. Head to the makeup counter, get a free demo and see for yourself!
