Everyday Minerals - Great gluten-free Mineral Make-up!

Recommended Posts

I'm not doing anything tonight except sleeping, but I actually considered redoing all my makeup and leaving it on until I go to bed. How weird is THAT!?

I think is sounds fun! :D You should do it!

Love Everyday Minerals! They're natural, yet have great coverage!

Welcome to the thread (and to the madness! :lol: ) What colors do you use? Do share... :D

Happy New Year everyone! :):DB)

OMGosh...my order is in Redwood City....That's just down the street a few miles, lol. I can probably drive there and pick it up faster than they can deliver it. :P

Donna, what are you waiting for . . . hop to it, there's make-up a waiting :lol: !!

;)

My husband is very - ahem - "appreciative" of how good it looks (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). That should probably be included as a disclaimer on the EM website. ;) I think I need to bake him some chocolate chip cookies as a distraction.

Woo hoo! Congratulations Colleen! Sounds like you're benefiting from this make-up in more ways than one ;);) !

Well now....this thread has just gotten to be unmanageable...... :lol:

Who knew Mango would start a monster cult-makeup thread? :lol:

So.........I am afraid to sift through all of it.......what is the consensus on the best choice as a concealer? is it actually the concealer?

I used the intensive this morning and really liked it.....felt it had some good concealing qualities......I took a break while skin cleared. BTW, I am using Aquaphor at night.......unbelievable stuff to clear blemishes, believe it or not. My skin has NEVER been this soft and clear.........

:)

I was thinking when I started this that a monster cult make-up thread was just what this board needed. :lol: :lol:

Concealer - well, I use intensive fair concealer mostly, with a bit of mint dusted underneath. Under my eyes I use sunlight with a dab of pick me up pink around the outer corners (just call me crazy concealer woman). I think the intensive concealer is really good actually, with the right brush (I use the BE equivalent of the EM premium foundation brush).

Did that make any sense? :blink::lol:

Has anyone tried DVR Saturday? (Donna, I think maybe you ordered it?) I'm thinking my blushes need to be pink with no brown or orange. That one looks like it might be good. I'm also wanting to try Pink Ribbon...and Natural...aaahh so many choices :wacko::D

For concealor, I use Sunlight under my eye as well. But someone - I forgot who, sorry - suggested putting the concealor on with eye moisturizer (it helps with the wrinkles :rolleyes:). I do that and it helps. I mix Pick Me Up Pink and Multi-tasking together and put that on with a moist make-up sponge. I have found my skin to be even better since I started using this make-up! The oils have subsided and it feels very soft - all day long, too! I don't get as oily at the end of the day.

This is one cult I don't mind belonging to . . . !

Yes because Lord knows I don't have enough monster cult threads in MY life! :lol: I'm not silly enough for the silly thread, so this was JUST what I needed! :P

I'm actually just using the foundation as a concealer...not sure I'd say it was a best choice, though, but certainly the laziest choice. :P

Yes, I really like the pinks with no hint of orange...Weekend Getaway wasn't bad for me though. I ordered DVR Saturday...it's amongst the goodies at the DHL facility down the road from where I WAS at work, lol. It probably won't get delivered until Wednesday or Thursday though... :angry:

Well DANG!!!! :lol:

I just checked the stupid tracking thing and it says it's with the delivery courier! DANG!!!!! :lol: It's being delivered to my work, and the STUPID OFFICE CLOSED EARLY TODAY, lol!!

Torture I tell you!!!

I left at 12:00 and right before I left, I checked the status, and it hadn't changed...it said it was at the facility. So I just checked again, and it says it's out for delivery!!!

I hope SOMEONE in the mail room stayed late, lol. If the dang thing says delivered before tomororow afternoon, I'm taking a ride up there (a 30 minute all freeway drive one way, lol) because any self-respecting makeup cult thread participant COULDN'T just let it sit there could they?! :lol:

Oh Donna, I hope you can get it figured out without having to take a trip today. Good luck to you!

I can't take it any more. I have 3 items in my cart all setup and ready. I found this site girlynation.com that gives you the best color matches based on your skin. It's not the best, but did help me get some more ideas. :rolleyes:

I was waiting to see what the new special would be, but they extended the old one until January 9th. Decisions, decisions...

Ha, no trip for me I guess...status hasn't changed...it's still out with the delivery courier. I guess I can wait tomorrow {{{she says with huge disappointment in her voice}}} :lol:

:o Wow, I was all excited to see what the new special would be today, lol. Oh well, I THINK I can wait until the 9th. Maybe. Possibly.

Oh goodie! Now we are a cult! I've always wanted to belong to one. I think we need leaflets. :lol:

The order I places on Saturday STILL hasn't been received by the post office! The USPS site still says "electronic information received." Humph.

I just looked at the EM website, and they have the CUTEST mixing bowls! How could I have missed those?!?!? I simply must order some of those next time.

I absolutely will not place an order until the primer and new eye shadow brush are available. But I really want to try baby bath, to do list and pressed olive in the eye colors. I have never been very experimental (except in the 80's when we all wanted to look like Madonna). But this makeup has really made me want to step outside of my comfort zone.

BTW - I tried mixing the EM foundation in to my moisturizer yesterday, and it worked great.

You know, it may just show up on your doorstep before that info changes, lol. USPS never seems to track well for me, lol. I hope that's the case for you, lol.

I know what you mean about stepping outside of my comfort zone. I'm excited to try greens and golds and bronzes, lol. I normally stay with the same sort of neutral pinks...it's exciting!

Ahhh! I'm going to bump this up - it almost made it off the "View New Posts" list - first time in almost a month :o ! I'm sure we are all busy with our make-up!

You know, it may just show up on your doorstep before that info changes, lol. USPS never seems to track well for me, lol. I hope that's the case for you, lol.

Donna, you will arrive to work tomorrow with your order waiting for you (darn those annoying holidays ;) )

Let us know how it went - I have green eyes and they say I should wear green make-up, but I'm not so sure of it. It's one of those things I see on other people and it looks fine, but I wear it and I look hideous <_<.

Well, I cleared out all my old make-up and even though there's more room in it, it gets all shuffled around and I have powder scattered all about. This week I'm going to look for a new container - I can't wait!!

Gaaaah! USPS still does not have any updates info on my last order. What's a poor addict to do?

Today is my first day back at work after 11 days off for the holidays. I have only been here for 2 hours. 3 people have already told ne how nice I look today. Putting on the EM only takes 5 minutes in the morning, and you get lots of compliments. What could be better?

Thanks! Do you have any links? I tried doing a search but really couldn't find anything specifically addressing the metals issue. I don't have an allergy to metals that I know of, but I have heavy metals toxicity.

To everyone else,

While searching on this I found this link...apparently they like our Everyday Minerals too, lol:

http://makeup.lovetoknow.com/Allergy_to_Mineral_Makeup

And a little excerpt from the link where they mention OUR cult obsession, LOL:

Where to Purchase

Mineral makeup can help you achieve radiant, glowing skin. If you worry about developing an allergy to mineral makeup, remember to research ingredient lists prior to purchasing the product. The following brands carry extensive mineral makeup collections that do not contain known allergens:

J.Lynne Cosmetics

Monave

Lily Lolo

Everyday Minerals (italics are MY emphasis, lol)

I didn't realize I was like 3 pages behind in our EM cult thread, what is the matter with me?!?!? :lol::lol:

My husband is very - ahem - "appreciative" of how good it looks (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). That should probably be included as a disclaimer on the EM website. ;) I think I need to bake him some chocolate chip cookies as a distraction.

:o:lol:;):D Colleen!

Those mixing bowls do look cute.....

That's so great you are getting so many compliments with your new look back at work :D

BTW, I am using Aquaphor at night.......unbelievable stuff to clear blemishes, believe it or not. My skin has NEVER been this soft and clear.........

Sounds like a miracle in a bottle Susie and something I might need :lol: Where do you find said product??

And what did you end up ordering from EM?

I'm thinking my blushes need to be pink with no brown or orange

Yes, I really like the pinks with no hint of orange

Well, I am terrible at colors, like for instance deciphering pinks with bluish tones rather than whatever else.....BUT I think this is what I need, what kind of pink anyway...a rose with a bluish undertone...I think..... :wacko:

I was waiting to see what the new special would be, but they extended the old one until January 9th. Decisions, decisions...

Oooh! So still FREE brushes.....

Thanks for the heads up Joni, you are always on top of the specials :lol:

I have green eyes and they say I should wear green make-up, but I'm not so sure of it. It's one of those things I see on other people and it looks fine, but I wear it and I look hideous

Laura, I have hazel eyes and that color session I had done the colorist also picked out green and brown eye makeup for me. I was a little shocked at fist but when she put it on it really did look pretty good, and did bring out my eyes which I guess is the point of eye makeup :lol::lol:

What she did is put a highlighter all over the lid and all the way up to the brow, then she put on a peachy color on the lid to crease, then she put just a light stroke of the green color in the eye lid crease with a light stroke of brown over it. THEN.....the upper lash line was lined with the green and brown, as well as the lower lash line. Brown mascara on the lashes finished it off.

Also, I have read that burgandy colors bring out the green in green eyes really well. I ordered Morocco eye color to test this theory out, it's a pretty deep burgandy tone.

Thanks for the warning debmidge. I think this was the issue for me and Bare Minerals, my skin felt irritated and burned and itched on ocasion. So far the EM is not causing me any problems, I think the ingredients are a lot purer and less allergenic, for me anyway.

because any self-respecting makeup cult thread participant COULDN'T just let it sit there could they?!

Good grief girls...I haven't been able to get on the site all morning and I've got the sweats!

:lol::lol::lol::lol: Donna

...and you say you aren't SILLY enough, you have me laughing over the last 3 or so pages!
