    BARE MINERALS HANDS DOWN! SHEER COVER IS A CHEAP KNOCK OFF. You can only buy sheer cover online or over the phone so if you don't have a credit card your basically screwed. Bare Minerals has been around since 1976 believe it or not and you can find it at places like sephora,ulta,the bare minerals boutiques and online stores. You also have a huge and i mean HUGE selection of products with bare minerals as opposed 2 sheer coverage and bare minerals actually covers better then sheer coverage, there have been actual tests done as far as coverage and staying put power n bare minerals has come out to be the winners on these tests. Also Bare Minerals brushes have better quality and with bare minerals if you go to a sephora, ulta or bare minerals store they can test it out on you right then and there also if you get it home and don't like it you can return it back. Also Bare minerals has done wonders for my skin as far as clearing it up and i constantly get comments now on my skin, I can even sleep in it and not break out. Trust me don't waste your money on sheer coverage. Oh and regarding the poster about the main ingredient usually in bare minerals if you did your research you would find out that its the main ingredient in the majority of tradional regular make up as well as mineral make up and also if she did her research she would see that sheer coverage also uses that ingredient in there make up, here see for your self http://www.sheercover.com/benefitsofminerals.php?p...

    So sorry but where ever she got her info from was wrong, so please dont be fooled, because if that was the case you would tons of women walking around with blotches allergic reactions! Also please take a look at the bare minerals ingredents as well http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P22...

    Also if you look around a lot have people have complained about the company in general and how they are a horrible company to deal with and will mess up your credit here take a look more negitive feed back then good , also i believe that with sheer ccoverage they out you ona program and with the bare minerals you dont have that hassel because you can order them not directly from bare minerals and walk into stores that are located in every state and buy the product with out signing up for everything!http://www.infomercialscams.com/scams/sheer_cover_...

    Neither one because they both contain bismuth oxychloride which is a form of arsenic lead. This leads to clogged pores and very itchy and irritated skin. The best mineral makeup you can buy which does not contain bismuth and is hypo allergenic is bee luscious liquid minerals it is a liquid to powder which delivers a better coverage more even and drys powdery soft.

    I like Bare Escentuals, but when I'm strapped for money I go for the N.Y.C. brand for the mineral veil. works just as good for me and cost a lot less!

    I recently bought bare minerals and I love it!

    Honestly I thought it wasn't going to work but as soon as I put it on I was amazed.

    It covers so well and looks so natural.

    I would highly reccommend it.

    Good luck!

    Sheer cover. I've been using it for the past three years and I love it. Great coverage and I've even fallen asleep in it before (I know, it's a no-no) but I woke up looking the same as I did the night before. Beautiful flawless skin. It's great. AND it comes with all sorts of extra stuff like lip gloss, liner, and facial washes.

    75% of all women are or will be allergic to bismuth oxychloride which is a main ingredient in Bare Escentuals. Are you willing to spend up to $60 on something that most likely WILL NOT WORK FOR YOU?

    I'm not.

    **People are going to give me "thumbs down" but these are the FACTS, just because you don't like them doesn't make them any less true. =)

    I love Bare Essentials. I have been using it for year. It's better for when you want to have move of an evening look. So you don't have to buy something else for a more formal finish if you need.

    Never tried Sheer Cover, but I can tell you that I LOVE Bare Escentuals. Before it came out, I never put any kind of cover up on my face, I'm glad this came out, as I am getting more blemishes as I get older. = )
