Mary Kay Mineral Makeup

Mary Kay was one of the first mainstream companies to jump on the mineral makeup band wagon. However, like many other bigger companies, they added many other ingredients to their formulation.

Mary Kay Mineral Makeup

The foundation, which retails for $18 is available in 6 shades, it is also available with the brush as a set for $28.  The Mary Kay reps are being trained to say that it costs "30% less than the leading brand" (meaning Bare Escentuals is $25 & Mary Kay's is $18).  There is a slight difference in size - a regular size Bare Escentuals foundation is 0.3 ounce net weight, compared to 0.28 ounce in the full size Mary Kay Foundation.

The ingredients are a bit different - the #1 ingredient is listed a talc, with cornstarch (which is a primary ingredient in Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil) is listed second.  It does not contain Titanium Dioxide, which is the primary ingredient in most mineral foundations.  It does not contain Bismuth - which some users find irritating to their skin.  Mary Kay also doesn't have an SPF "claim" with the foundation - so if you use it make sure you use some other form of SPF.  (See more on Mineral Makeup Ingredients.)

Here are the Mary Kay Ingredients:
Talc , Zea Mays (Corn) Starch , Zinc Stearate , Dimethicone , Boron Nitride , Zeolite , Methylparaben , Sorbic Acid , Ethylene/Methacrylate Copolymer , Propylparaben , Tetrasodium EDTA , Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate , BHT , Iron Oxides , Mica
