How often do any of your clean your brushes and with what??

If I remember correctly the site said to wash your brushes with shampoo and rinse til you don't see any more color coming off the brush. Also to wash at least every 2 weeks.

I've read that some wash everyday.....I guess it depends on how much they are used, etc.

They suggest washing them in the evening so they are dry in the morning. Seems like when I washed mine that they took longer than 10 hours to dry. I washed mine in the morning and left them til the next morning. I haven't gotten back into the habit of wearing it everyday though. Mostly just when I go out, which isn't very often with the gas prices. :(

I sometimes brush the blush into my eyebrows to give them a hint of red. Today I brushed some onto my growing out bride-of-frankenstein gray streaks on my temples, worked pretty well -dulled the gray. maybe a fun way to liven up your hair color for a day. :P

:lol: !!!! Okay, I must try this. Probably sometime in August...I'm having my hair done Saturday, but then won't be able to have it done again until sometime at the end of August, so my grey roots will be showing plenty by then...I'll have to experiment with different colors, lol!

place 3 orders in one week? Two in the same Day!!!!!

...

Where are you guys ordering the cases from ?? I believe I need one now.

Okay, three in a week, and TWO in one day is definitely cult status...in fact, if Mango doesn't pop in more often we might promote you, lol. (J/K Mango! No one could replace our founder, lol)

Train cases...I bought my first one at Target...a bright blue Kaboodles plastic case. My second one was also from Target, but was a "craft" tote.

Then I bought this one from this company:

That's too small now, so I just ordered this one from Sephora (saw it in person in the store and it is bigger than my other pink one):

As far as cleaning brushes...I try to do it at least once a month. I have some liquid castille soap that I use. I also have duplicate of all my brushes because, like Andrea said, they seem to take a really long time to dry. Overnight definitely doesn't do it for me, and sometimes it even takes a couple of days. And, I even rub them on a towel to get the excess water out.

:lol: It's okay, I deserve to be demoted LOL.

I even have an EM rant today....

Start to Finish Rice Powder. Does anyone have success with this? Whenever I use it, it makes my foundation all caky and dry, and prevents it from lasting for more than an hour or so. I wonder if the regular Start to Finish powder is better? :huh:

I use the start to finish soft bronzer and to come to think of it is a little cakey. Im having more problems with the pearl stuff. Last night i put on a little pearl beige and i actually thought my makeup looked good. Well as i was driving to the baseball game, i looked in the mirror and omg i looked terrible. i was all shiney and my wrinkles were magnified and it just looked terrible. I stayed in the car to watch the game, i didnt want anyone to see me lmao.

Im thinking og gaing back to all the basic stuff from before the new site. I had better luck with that stuff lol. The pressed powder is terrible, the pearl stuff is terrible, the start to finish is not that great. But hey the new lip colors are cool lmao

Yeah the pearl concealors take a little work to get just the right amount. I'm thinking of putting tape over all but one hole in the sifter so that I never get more than one little dot, lol.

Guess what!

MY NEW TRAIN CASE CAME!!!! Woo hoo...I know what I'm doing this weekend.

Andrea, I haven't sent the package out yet, lol.

Okay, I'm debating whether or not to take makeup to Vegas. It's going to be so flippin' hot that it's just going to melt off anyway and probably not look good more than an hour or two. My friend hasn't seen me in makeup in YEARS, lol. She'll be shocked! :lol: Still, we're staying in a suite and I MUST look the part mustn't I?! :lol: J/K....I NEVER care about THAT, lol. Actually, what it will come down to is whether or not I want to put the extra "weight" in my bag, lol. I only take one small carry on. I'm lazy. :P Still, maybe a little foundation, blush and lip gloss might work. Ah, decisions, decisions!

Donna, why don't you compromise and just take the basics? All of that would fit into a very small makeup bag/pouch thingy.

If it were me I would take my foundation and brush, blush and brush, one neutral eye color and brush, mascara, eyebrow brush, lip balm, and lip liner. I have what I need for a full face if I want, or I could just do a la carte things as needed, say just a little blush and lip balm.

Okay...basics it is! Yeah, A/C most of the time but they over-cool the casinos so that when you step outside into the JULY heat it's like stepping into a furnace, lol. It only takes a couple of minutes out there to start sweating. :sweatyfacedemoticongoeshere:

Sorry the new stuff isn't working for you. I like the pearl consealers done very very lightly on and around my eyes, then I cover with foundation. My husband commented that my eyes look nice and bright, but not shiny.

:lol: You definitely get to keep your lead codie status, Mango.

Good decision. It is not like you can just go and buy it if you decided you wish you had it with you.

I am so happy to finally have a foundation that works for me. I get the perfect look by using a light covering of the ivory pressed powder followed by the soft peach butter. I hope you all eventually get a pressed powder color that works for you, because the finish it gives to the skin is so much better than the regular foundations. One of these days I will have to post a new picture. I have been having computer problems lately, so I can't right now.

I do think in the winter time the pressed powder will work but right now im way too dark to be wearing stuff that light. I have done so much yardwork and landscaping that I am very tan right now and that stuff just makes me look like death lol. A month ago sunkissed fair was my perfect color, now im back to buttered tan and summer beige to match my skin lol. That might be another reason the pearl stuff dont work. I will wait til winter and try that stuff again, since i have enough to last an lifetime.

Donna,

You will have to post pics of the new trian case full of makeup, well maybe not. I know i will want to buy it once i see it lol.

Birdy, definitely hope that gets straightened out for you soon.

Okay, SOMEONE please tell me why I haven't been wearing WAFFLE CONE, lol! I'm still trying to sort through all my stuff and last night while trying to put everything in my new train case I came across Waffle Cone. For some reason I was thinking it was WAY brown, lol. It was so pretty in the jar that I had to wear it this morning...just to grocery shop and get my hair done and go to the car wash, lol. See, now THAT's the problem with having too much stuff! :lol::ph34r::lol:

Wasn't sure I liked the new train case, but after a few rearranges, I think I've found the perfect configuration. Everything (except lip gloss), even my spares, fit in there! I wish there were a few more grooves to put the dividers into but I found a way to make it work the way I want. I do miss the drawers that were removable in my old train case though. It may not have had as much room, but EVERYTHING was easy to get to. I may put my lip glosses in the old case. :lol:

Wonderful news, and perfect cult behavior lol. Enjoy!

I have a new order almost ready to go, but it won't let me add one of the new colors I want. I guess I will have to wait to place my order. I will just have to miss this special and hope they get another one up soon. Then again, maybe I should just add one of my favorites, although, I have duplicates of each already. What to do, what to do.
