Every mineral makeup I have tried seems to irritate my skin. But so far this one is working well. I usually get these tiny bumps all over my face after about a day of putting anything makeup on my face. I've been wearing Sterling makeup for about 3 weeks and still good. Keeping fingers crossed I have finally found the one, and I'll raise this to 5 stars if things continue to progress to the positive. The color is perfect, but i'll need to darken a bit for summer.
