Clinique vs. bare minerals

Ok so everyone is talking about bare minerals and I am currently using clinique acne solutions... Can anyone tell me which is better with covering? And if bare minerals is all powder does is cover good or wipe off easily through the day? Any info is appreciated thank u :-)

I hear bare minerals is great. Buuuut from what I have used, mineral powders are soooo messy. So I'm not a fan.
I like Clinique. Esp since I have sensitive skin.
But for coverage I'm not sure.
I actually use Cargo, you can buy it at JCPenny sephoras.
Great coverage and not too heavy and good for acne prone skin (which I have as well)

I used to use clinque or other foundations. Always thick and cakey! I have been using sheer cover for about 2 years now! Love it, covers any acne and even acne scars ! It does get messy when putting it on , as it is powder , but its wonderful. I get the box of 3 different colors and other extras at bed bath and beyond. Its about 30 dollars but I always use coupons. I am able to mix all 3 jar colors together and use it like that. Last about 2 months or longer for me

Also I have used bare minerals, same thing . Seems bare is more expensive and I didnt like it as much as sheer cover. I have always had makeup that sweats off easily. Sheer cover stays on the best for me, even when I workout, if a spot looks bad just grab the brush and brush that area and back to great again!

I use Mary Kay mineral makeup, I don't think it's too messy the way the container is made, and it covers great, I used to always use liquid for coverage, but now I don't even have to use concealer

i use bare minerals and i love it! yes its pricey but its natural and doesnt fade or come off through out the day. and it actually helped with my achne, if you dont mind spending just a little more money for you make up bare minerals is perfect... plus it last a long time, i got mine 5 months ago and i still have half of it left.

ok i work at a place that sells bareminerals and i have used it and its ok. thats weird that you use clinique acne solutions cause thats the exact stuff i use too. but anyways back to bareminerals, we sell ALOT of this stuff and people always come back for more but me personally i have extremely oily skin and it faded and came off too fast so i am back to clinique. i too am on the hunt for new makeup..thinking about trying jane iredale, ive heard lots of good stuff about it. so if you have oily skin i dont know if i would go with bareminerals, although they do have a matte finish one which i did like better than the original finish. good luck!

Bare minerals is all powder. Covers amazingly, and they give you mineral veil so it will not wipe off through out the day(:

bare minerals are great highlighters. but powder fibish foundations dont work for me. I've tried several and the onw that i love is mac satin finish. so natural and not cakey at all.

I use bare minerals and it's a great cover-up all over face powder! It's great for your face, you can sleep in it, won't clog your pores, and great for people with acne.

I love Bare Minerals; it barely feels like I'm wearing anything.

I use Clinique Acne Solutions and I have used BE before when I was in ballet on pointe for performances. I loved it. Idk why i stopped using it honestly. I now use a mousse foundation and set it with the mineral veil that came with BE.

Bare minerals has talc in it which makes a lot of people break out. Especially if you're already prone to acne. It makes me break out like crazy. I use estee lauder double wear. It's great! Covers well but doesn't look too cakey

Clinique irritates my skin and eyes, and I used to use bare minerals, they changed the packaging so you can't get it all out and it gets wasted. I use Laura mercier powder foundation and sometime use the tinted moisturizer when I don't want a full makeup job. I would highly recommend her stuff, you can get it at sephora
