I swear by this stuff

I've used various other mineral make up and the california girl pressed mineral make up is the best in giving me an overall polished matte look where I look great and don't even look like I'm wearing make up.
Better than BareMinerals

I love this compact the coverage is great. It doesn't feel like you are wearing a lot of makeup.
must use primer

I've tried 3 or 4 different mineral/powder makeups and thought they all looked bad UNTIL while trying out Colorscience, the lady put the Sunreliable Primer on first. I think the primer is the end all and is what makes colorscience or any other makeup look better. Because it fills in and minimizes the look of your pores and fine lines and just like a paint primer, makes the coat of paint (make-up) go on better and last longer. Colorscience Wild to Mild has a slight tint to it, but some of the other varieties don't, I have really oily skin and the primer is the best I've tried for helping with excess oil too.
Better coverage than Bare Escentuals

I have bad post acne marks. For most of my life I have worn Bare Escentuals. Then I started working at a spa that carried Colorscience. Because of my awesome discount, I started to buy Colorscience. Then, I went and worked for a different spa in which they sold Bare Escentuals. So, I started using that mineral makeup again. Having tried both, I can honestly say that they are both great, but if you don't have close to perfect skin, then go for the Colorscience. It's great! Yes it's pricey, but with all the things that you need to make Bare Escentuals work well, you might as well have bought Colorscience. I recommend buying the Colorscience face spritzer of your choice to finish it with. Other than that, the compact suits me just fine and is GREAT coverage. With Bare Escentuals I was having to buy all different types of powders to do all sorts of things. With Colorscience, I can just buy the compact and face spritzer. AMAZING. It also lasts a long time. I still work at the spa that sells Bare Escentuals, so it sucks having to tell people that I'm wearing it instead of what I'm really wearing....COLORSCIENCE. Get it!
