Sheerly Covered?

Okay, so normally, this lady is not an infomercial fan/watcher. Sometimes I'll tune in for a little bit because some of the stuff they sell is just hilarious (ie - SlapChop, Snuggie and Hawaii Chair), but at the beginning of January I got caught up one for Sheer Cover mineral make-up. My morning "make-up" routine (if you can call it that) consists of mascara. That's it. But with a full money-back promise and only $10 for a months supply, I figured I couldn't go wrong. So my package arrived on Wednesday and since we had a get-together Friday night to celebrate a friends completion of her Masters Degree (congrats Megan!!!), I thought I'd get Trev to take a before and after shot.
Both pictures were taken with the same lighting, ISO, white balance, shutter speed and f-stop and when I edited them I brought the levels up the the exact same values.
Now that I see them side-by-side you can tell that I've got something on my face. I can't say that I am totally blown away but I do notice a more even tone to my skin and that it feels less oily. It won't be something I'm going to start doing on a daily basis but I like that when I do want to get a little done up, that I can have the option without my face feeling cakey or over-done.
I am curious though, if anyone can recommend a brand of mineral foundation that they really like that I can get from the grocery store?

I currently use Mary Kays mineral powder foundation but am thinking of switching back over to Mac, which is what I used to use. I`m not a BIG wearer of makeup, although if i`m going to go out I will put on powder, blush, mascara and something for the lips!

Also, I remembered reading a thread on this topic on Shawnas blog awhile back... I even got the links for ya!
