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

Recommended Posts

Welcome Aim301!!! I see you got an answer to your question. I usually order the foundation I want to try in three different formulations...there can be slight color variations between the formulations, but of course the final determination is whether it makes my skin look oily, lol. I've ordered about 6 sample kits I think.

. . . and just whose job is it at that company to come up with names like "spin cycle", "waffle cone", "gold medal", "dust bunnies", "lint trap", etc??

:lol: !

More for the list:

Dirty Windows (an opague pearlescent brown)

Tub Ring (a nice charcoal gray)

And why not:

Wet sponge (an oil absorbing powder)

I wouldn't have though of laundry soap. It doesn't leave any residue on the brushes? Is it a liquid?

Here's the verdict: this morning, my brushes felt super soft and clean. It was, probably, the best they've felt since I bought them.

Just wanted to report my experiment with the Silk Dust (I have the Tinted Silk Dust).

I applied a layer of silk dust first under my foundation, then foundation on top of that, and another layer of silk dust to set everything after that. It yielded a very nice result.

I even got a compliment on how nice my skin looked, so I figured I must have stumbled onto something with this technique :lol:

Good job Julie!!!

By-the-way everyone, Bronze Medal does look pretty good as a blush...not very bold, but a subtle bronzing.

Ahhh, so many new colors!!! I was pleased to see that I already had 3 of the new blushes, thanks to the specials, all of which I love. I was sad to see that most of the new eye colors were matte, because I don't care for matte shadows, but I did order Eco-friendly, Jasmine Tea and Laptop. I also got Floating Feathers, and Girl's Day and Wake Up Call in anticipation of using them as shadows......I like very intense colors on my eyes, and I'm looking for a more reddish-pink shadow, which they don't seem to have, so we'll see! I also ordered the Start To Finish Rice Powder in Sunlight, since I can't get Silk Dust anymore, I hope it doesn't make me break out like the Finishing Dust does.

Back to school today, thank goodness! It's s quiet with just me and my little guy.....my oldest started middle school today, and my other two are back to their old school...such an exciting day, and I might have time to play with my makeup! LOLOL

New colors?! :lol: Sheesh, I'm falling down on the job...I didn't even know there were new colors.

From the last batch I ordered...

The free eye shadow Gold Medal was a hit with me, and Homework blush was great. This morning I'm wearing the raspberry blush and it's pretty nice as well.

Maybe I'll go over there now and see what's new.

Okay, I just HAD to put in an order, lol. I LOVE that they have the little "new" tags on some of the new products.

So I ordered all the new blushes and two of the new concealors in a personal mini kit.

Then ordered samples of three of the newer eyeshadows.

And, annother eye kabuki brush so I could get the free eyeshadow, lol.

From the website:

When we are finished with the transition we will be increasing the number of samples in Free Sample kit and lowering prices on sample products! We are really excited about this. We will keep you posted as we continue to make this transition. Please keep in mind, these are not "baggies" like transparent bags -- these are beautiful. I will post an image soon! All sample sizes will come in the new packaging. We will be offering the Eye Shadow Sample Kit with mini sized recyclable jars as well as in the new packaging. We know you will be thrilled when you see the results. We will keep you posted!

* 5 new eye shadow colors are online! YAY! Eco-Friendly (shimmer) - Casual Friday (matte) - Laptop (shimmer) - Jasmine Tea (pearl) - Wallaby (matte) -- have 4 more but are waiting due to stocking and manufacturing schedules - hopefully soon!!!

* Around September 8th Everyday Minerals will be launching 12 new Foundation Shades. We will keep you posted with exact times toward the end of next week!

UPDATE (August 28th) Just talked with photographer, they tell me this weekend for new model shots, so let's anticipate images being up around Wednesday.

A few months ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac's disease, and have also had a tough time changing my diet, throwing out all of my beloved cosmetics, but am feeling so much better because of it! I came across a line of personal care products and also cosmetics that is completely gluten free. It is also free of sodium lauryl sulfate, aluminum, alcohol, mineral oil, and is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and vegan.

This company is called Cleure. You can find them at www.cleure.com.

Some of my favorites of their products: cinnamon toothpaste, roll-on deodorant, shampoo, nailpolish, lipstick, lip gloss, pressed blush, liquid foundation.. and I could go on and on!

"I was sad to see the ?Screaming Lady? on the Custom Kit page go, so I kept her there an extra few hours so we could all say our heartfelt goodbyes. For those that didn?t get to see the Screaming Lady, or ?Bamboo Boo!? (model peaking out from the bamboo), forgive us all for having the pleasure of doing so.

Just wanted to say thanks to Tanika for the beautiful work with your powders, and Walid for the amazing photography. I love how they represented the brand with so much love. We were so happy to have this experience and bring their work to you.

I love the new photos and hope you do too. I am also excited about the New Look Book. It will really be about your contributions! We will have lots of color guessing fun and let everyone show off their own beauty styles

We will have so much more to come, I promise. We are just now starting to heat up, so I can?t wait for what is to come! I have some surprises, but also have learned how to bite my tongue! Ouch!

UPDATE (9/04/08): Thrilled to let everyone know we are shifting to Mini Jars in Sample Kits and Sample Sizes for our one month transition to the New Recyclable Sample Packaging.

Mini Jars will replace sample size containers. In 30 days we will only offer Sample sizes in the New Recyclable Sample Packaging or in Mini Size jars half-filled.

The idea is that instead of tossing sample containers in the trash, you keep the mini jar forever! Our goal is to offer you more of the best, and we feel that during this 30-day transition to the new sample packaging, we can all get a head start!

Keep in mind that sample kits may look a little bit ?interesting? over the next 30-days as we go from sample sizes, to mini jars, to the new packaging ? I just think reusing our makeup jars is a fun and meaningful way we can do something for our families and keep the planet looking good and healthy.

Plus we get to give you so much more!

UPDATE: The new Foundation Launch is underway. September 8th has been rescheduled for 10th at 10:00 pm CST. We will be launching 10 new shades. So 10, on the 10th, at 10 pm

Thanks for everything and making this week so much fun!

We all love you, everyone of us here - THANKS!!!!

I got my order already! What a change from the last time..... :angry:

Anyway.....

Eco-Friendly looks to me like mint concealer, but with sparkle. I'm not so sure I like it, but we'll see what happens when I put it on.

Laptop looks likes a darker Diary, so I think that'll be nice, since I wear Diary a lot. A pinkish-brown woth sparkle.

Jasmine Tea is a very light beige, pretty...probably for a highlght color.

I'm not sure about Girl's Day, it looks kind of orange, but I think that Wake Up Call is what I've been looking for as far as a reddish color. It's almost crimson.....very pretty. I think that'll be my first experiement. :P

Thanks for your review Shannon :)

I love that they put "NEW" tabs on all the new items, that really helps a lot.

I like the look of the new foundation brush and I want to get the eye kabuki brush.

ALL the new concealers have me :wacko:...how do you figure out what does what and what is best for you?

Hi everyone,

It's been a long time since I've been in here. Summer flew by so fast, and I didn't wear much makeup, lol.

I guess I'll have to go over to EM and see all the new things there.

Hi Ladies,

I've been using Everyday minerals off and on since April but within the last 2 mths. have used it everyday and just love it! :) Cool Medium and Cool Med. Summer seem to be working well and tinted silk dust and email for my blush. I would like to get some eyeshadow and think wildflowers and bundled up for a highlighter may work well. I'm looking for a natural light brown eyeshadow. In looking at their website again baby bath, movie night or spin cycle may be ok too - has anyone used any of these colors including wildflowers and bundled up? Thanks for any info! btw - i love reading this thread - it's how i learned of Everyday minerals! :)

Hi fig girl, glad you popped in the EM thread :)

I have Wild Flowers and absolutely love it, it's one of my favorite colors! I also have Baby Bath, I really like it. It might be exactly what you are looking for, it's a really light natural neutral color.

I think they're using "tan" to refer to far too broad a range of colors. I ordered Deep Tan for my biracial daughter to wear as a concealer, and it's way too dark for her. So then I ordered Intensive Tan Concealer, and it's so light I can almost wear it, and I'm pretty fair; things like Fair Medium and MultiTasking work for me. It's not very helpful to have two such wildly different tones both called "Tan." Tacking the word "Deep" onto one of them doesn't suggest the vast degree of difference there between the two colors.

Fig girl, I also love the Wildflowers eye shadow. I don't wear a lot of eye makeup, but have been using it wet as a liner and really like it. Haven't tried Bundled Up, though.

Thank you Juliem and MNBeth! I really appreciate it! Wildflowers and babybath sound great....maybe i'll order both! :) Is it hard to apply these as eyeliner? I've only used an eyeliner pencil - do you use a special brush? Thanks again!

Hi Donna!

Thank you for your reply! There's so many nice eyeshadow colors that i want to try but i'm thinking do i really need that many!? lol I'm trying to be conservative since i feel like i spend so much money now on gluten-free food....but it's all worth it! I haven't ordered anything yet but may end up getting the eyeshadow sample kit since i can't decide! :P Thanks again!

Up until they added the new colors recently I had all but 3 of the eyeshadows, and NO I don't use them all, lol. I think I only use about 5 regularly that are my favorites.
