Is mineral makeup drying to your skin

What do you say to comments about mineral makeup being drying?

I have found good quality mineral makeup not to be drying to the skin at all, as mineral makeup when applied properly, as in buff into the skin works with the skin natural oils and give a health glow to the skin.

I would firstly check that there were no filler or talc in the mineral makeup as this could result in a drying effect to the skin.

Also use good quality moisturiser first and allow 5 minutes to dry before applying mineral makeup.
