The young lady who was doing this presentation used her fingers without gloves or anything to put the makeup on the client... instead of using a wedgie... you never ever put your hands on your face!!! I have excellent skin and I've used wedgies or something like them since I was in my 20's when I lady told me you never ever touch someones face with your hands...

Yesterday I complemented a woman on her great skin and she said it was thanks to mineral makeup. Now I am dying to try it! The Foundation Tint product mentioned in the video sounded particularly interesting but I wonder if it is enough to cover little lines?

Great video. I learned lots of new tricks. I use a mineral makeup right now but would love to try something else.

This was so informative. After my daughter was born I have had such sensitive skin and would have bad reactions to eveything I have tried. After a while I just gave up on putting any thing on. After seeing this I want to go try this product.

Very cool! I am currently trying to switch over all of my makeup to mineral makeup. Since its a little more pricey than regular makeup, i'm doing it piece by piece. I even got my mom to switch her makeup! It's just added incintive that this makeup is from wholefoods. One of my fav stores. I dont get to go all that often, though, because there is not one locally. Bummer! Would love to add this makeup to my routine!

Wow great products I have always stayed away from make-up except for special occasions because it always felt like a mask on my skin and my Mom always told me make-up was bad for your skin, now after watching this podcast I can hardly wait to get my hands on this product. I love the fact that it is good for your skin.

That was educational! I like the techniques she uses to apply makeup without having to touch your face.Specifically liked the foundation which didn't make the model look "overdone". I like the concept of minerals since natural is SO much better for skin (especially as an everyday substitute).

Loved the demo - I have always wondered how to use those eye trios! I've been using mineral makeup for years but it's great to see it more readily available in shops rather than having to specially order it over the internet.

Wow that looks easy. After 3 kids I'm starting to think about myself once in a while.

I'd love to give it a try too. I LOVE Whole Foods even though there aren't any where I live. I go any chance I can when I travel.

I was surprised to find out that it was better for you than nothing at all. Loved that it has different teas in its product. Love that it protects from UVA and UVB rays.

This is truly remarkable! I'm very impressed! I have had Roseacea for years and I need something light and good for my skin. I've never tried mineral make-up before and I would LOVE to try this!! Sounds like it could do wonders for my skin.

This was the first mineral make-up infomercial that I have seen where I've gotten lost in the presentation and actually 'forgotten' I was watching a commercial (basically).

This was really interesting...I've always had a terrible time with any makeup, moisturizer - really anything I've had to put on the skin on my face. I'm very excited to give this a try and see how it works for me!
