Does Everyday Minerals Make You Itch?

I was driving to work this morning when I realized I was digging at my face. It seriously itched, especially my forehead. I had been using Smoky Mountain Minerals off and on for the past 3 years, but had run out last month and started using a new container of Everyday Minerals I got in a swap on Makeup Alley. The more I itched, the more I thought about it. My skin has been itching and breaking out with these strange pimples for....the past month. Huh, coincidence?

I just don't understand what in the heck is in this stuff that is making me itch and break out like this. The ingredients are basic with no Bismuth, which I know makes me itch. It's the only product in my morning lineup that has changed.

Anyone else have the same experience with Everyday Minerals?

Ingredients: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Zinc Oxide (CI 77947), Iron Oxides (CI 77489, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499). May contain: Ultramarines (CI 77007).

  1. I have been using e.m. samples for a while now and they just started itching last week. My face only itches for the first hour or two after I put them on. The only thing that has changed is that I got new samples. I had never tried original glo. That's what I'm trying now and I think that is what's itching. I tried Bare Mineral samples a month ago and had no trouble at all, however when I tried my sister's b.e. a year ago it really made me itch. I'm combo/acne prone and sensitive. Any ideas?
