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.

I have quite a few of the eyeshadow colors too (although not near the amount as Donna :lol: ) and I find I only end up using a few of the same colors, my go to colors :D

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!

I have 2 eyeliner brushes. One is a thin little tapered brush that came with my Bare Minerals eye makeup kit, and the other is a thin, angled brush that I bought at the grocery store. I find a get a thinner line when I use the first brush, so that's the one I use most, but the other one is fine, too.

I was going to comment when I saw that, but I thought I must have been confused. Is that really the name of the shade? :unsure: LOL

I had an accidental discovery from ordering a wrong shade: I wanted to try the pressed powder to keep in my purse for touch-ups, wasn't sure which shade to order so I picked an olive shade trying to compliment my medium olive foundation. Thank God I tried it in my house before trying it in public because it made me look a nasty shade of death (and I see this shade working at a hospital...), so I brushed on my foundation over the powder-it darkened my skin up just enough to the perfect shade my skin is in the fall/winter time. I was just trying to figure out what new shade to order since my summer "glow" is disappearing--Now I have a solution! Plus, I can use the powder like a spackle for my giant nose pores :lol::lol:

So, if you buy the wrong shade, try it with one of the others you have to see if you end up with something that works!

I'm kind of wondering what's up with them though. I ordered a month ago and no sign of my package - and no one at EM will answer my emails :(

Thanks for the tip celiac mommy! I have the pressed powder in fairly light and it's a pretty good shade for me...maybe a tad bit light for summer but i think will be perfect for fall/winter. I keep it in my purse also but am going to try it as a spackle too for my giant nose pores! :D Thanks!

Donna is in LOVE with the two newest lavendar eyecolors: Laptop and Jasmine Tea. These are the closest match yet to the BE colors I was using.

I'm also liking some of the newest foundation colors in the Olive category. Haven't tried Martian yet but will soon, lol.

Hi everyone. I am nearly out of my Bare Escentuals and want to try this makeup but there are so many choices! I need help. I have very fair skin with reddish brown hair. I have a few freckles and I hate to say this, but the dreaded brown spots on my face. Skin is normal to dry. The last time I have my makeup done they told me I had yellow undertones. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

I have to confess. I have spent entirely TOO much money on makeup in the last week!! haha I put in my first order. I got the sample kit and a few other things. Had a great time playing with that when it came. Then of course I had to place AnOTHER order to get more "stuff". This is addicting, but I do like the makeup. I can't even feel it on my face!! That was the problem with what I wore before, it was just too heavy and made me HOT!!! This stuff is great. Love it!!

Yeah Jessica, it really IS addicting, lol!

Hi Jenny, welcome!!! You may want to try a foundation in the Golden, Olive or Beige category first, and try the lightest shade in those categories.

I'd definitely recommend getting the FREE sample kit first. You can order as many of those as you need to (just not at the same time) to find the right shade. The sample kit just costs a few dollars for postage, but that's better than ordering a full sized shade that may not be right for you.

You can get 3 foundation shades, a blush and a concealor in the free sample kit. You can either order one shade in three different formulations or three different shades in whatevery formulation you think might work.

I have normal to oily skin with dry patches, but I've found that I like the matte the best. The original glo looked way too "dewy", lol. The semi matte isn't bad for me, but tends to look a bit oily by the end of the day. Intensive probably has the most coverage. Matte can sometimes look a little dry when I first put it on, but that usually goes away fairly quickly for me. There can also be slight differences in shading between the different formulations.

I totally second ordering the free kit if you've never ordered from them before. It's hard to pick just the right color from a tiny little color swatch that can differ from computer to computer. You can't beat paying 3$ish for shipping and having at least a month's worth of makeup (that's how long mine lasted). It worked out really well for me, I found my summer and my winter shade on the 1st try and got to play with some fun colors too (LOVE the bronzer!!!). I get really oily and have had a significant acne problem in the last year, so I use the intensive to cover my large pores and acne red scars. I also use the finishing dust to minimize the oil and it really works. I also haven't had as much acne since I've been using EM exclusively-and am also using a Salycylic acid wash 2x a day. (I also like the fact that if I fall asleep before taking off the makeup, I can take my dd to school the next morning and I look like I already did my face-it lasts a long time! ;) )

Thanks dlp52 and celiac-mommy for responding and the suggestions. I will definitely try the samples and get one in the intensive since I have a few brown spots to cover. Did y'all buy brushes from them too? I have some from BE, but I think the big brush is a little rough. I'm guessing this works like BE where you do a foundation, cover up and something to set it. New makeup - yea! I told my sister about this too. She couldn't use BE - said it irritated her rosacea.

I'm excited to order, but a little nervous I could end up looking like a clown.

I wish they would add a whole separate category on this forum combining makeup, cleansers, lotions - girly stuff! hint hint ;)

Yes, I bought their brushes...they are much softer than the BE brushes (IMHO, lol). I've also purchased some Eco brushes...I'd heard about them on the EM website forum, but could never find them in my local stores, and then one day my Long's had them. They are very soft as well.

Oh, and I tried the Light Martian foundation. Um, I'm on the fence about that one, lol. I could SWEAR I looked GREEN when I looked in the mirror at work. None of the other Olive family looks green, lol. It could be just my imagination (which is quite active), but I don't know. I went back to my newest purchase Buff-Linen, which is quite fair and definitely NOT green. :lol:

The EM brushes are soooooo much better than the BE brushes. I loooooove my EM brushes - so luxurious and amazing (seriously!). Pretty affordable too for how great they are. I'd recommend the flat top, long handled kabuki and eye kabuki.

I love them too, Donna!! I've been using Jasmine Tea on my browbone, it looks really nice with a lot of purpley colors. I really like the few newest colors they have out, too. I have to order soon!!!! In fact, I think that Laptop is my current fav.

I tried the start-to-finish powder, and that's making me break out, too. I'm not happy about no more silk dust. :(

    Hi Lfortson, I assume you are on the gluten-free diet?  So no wheat, rye or barley?  That's good, but there are about 10% of celiacs who react to oats also.  So you might want to get rid of oats for several months and see if things improve. Another somewhat common food issue is dairy.  Some people can't digest lactose (cow milk sugar), and some can't digest casein (cow milk protein).  So it might help to eliminate all dairy for several months also.  Almond milk is a possible substitute
    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.
