A really good guide written by Phyrra can be found on Temptalia, where she explains what to look out for when buying mineral makeup. A useful German guide can be found at Beautyjagd (Part 1 and Part 2). Mineral Makeup – Facts and Myths is another useful article to learn more about what mineral makeup can and cannot offer.

Brands from the UK

Brands from the US

Brands from DE

Brands from other countries

Some other lists where indie/mineral makeup brands are noted or compared:
