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

Recommended Posts

Okay guys...so I don't think any of you have skin in need of as much concealer as mine LOL, but I discovered this morning that mixing intensive fair concealer with with my moisturizer does amazing things! It covered all my red marks and evened everything out so well! I still put mint and like three coats of foundation over it...but I probably didn't even need to. Yay! This will save me major time in the morning :D

Mixing it in with my moisturizer works the best for me too. Then I spot cover some red spots with the mint concealer, and do another light dusting of foundation. Then a bit of blush, eyeshadow, and mascara and I am good to go for the day. 5 minutes well spent.

I have fallen in love with the EM eyeliner (Smokey) and eyeliner brush. It gives a much more natural look than the pencil stuff. In the past when i have used an eyeliner pencil, it makes me look like I did in high school and wore all the black clothes and eyemakeup and listened Bauhaus and the Cure all day. My batcaver days are oficially behind me. ;)

In other news, I am getting a lot of attention now from several of the guys at work. Flattering stuff for an old (36 years) married lady. Aparently I have been looking like crap for years and nobody bothered to clue me in. Keep in mind it's an IT department, so lots of these guys don't have much contact with women other than their Mothers whom they live with. :lol:

Okay, so is ANYONE ELSE as excited as I AM about the big day tomorrow (the day many of us will be hitting "CHECKOUT")!!! :lol:

I figured out that with all the stuff in my cart at this point in time, there are only 5 shades of eye color and 5 shades of blush left that I HAVE to try! :lol: Of course, there are still several other products I want to try, but that's it for the minerals. :ph34r:

Awesome about the Smokey eyeliner success!

Would you just die if they only extend the current special?!?!?!? :o

Well I for one, and probably the only one :lol: , am not ready to place a big order just yet. I am still trying different colors out and really taking my time with my choices (I'm slow like that :lol: )

BUT it is so nice to know thay they do offer specials so frequently, if not one at all times, so I can sleep easy and know I can catch the next one around :D

This is amazing to me! LOL Well at least when you do place your big order it will definitely be an awesome one :D

Okay...I have a question, that I bet Donna can answer :lol:

It's about blush. I'm wondering about Chit Chat, and how it compares to DVR and Photo Album. These are very important things you know :lol: So is it pinker, plumier, more orange? The reviewers over at make-up alley really seem to love that one, so I might just have to try it (which will completely mess up my cart, btw... aahh... :rolleyes:

Oh how I remember that look. Yet, there are people who just can't let it go . . . .

Darn! I have to wait until I get paid next week before I can buy anything :angry: ! Well, it will give me more time to pick-out what I want. ;) Plus the feedback I get from you guys always helps :) !

So true, the feedback is always helpful. I love hearing what everyone likes/doesn't like (although there doesn't seem to have been any dislikes as of yet) and how it works for them.

Yes Donna, inquiring minds must know about Chit Chat!!!!!

I was thinking the "shimmer" part of it would turn me off, I am not sure I need to sparkly shimmery cheeks :blink: ??

But then again, maybe I do if the color is right.

I have a few of the shimmery blushes. They are sparkley in the jar, but when I put them on my skin they have more of a brightening effect than a glittery one. I tend to like a hint of shimmer though. The darker matte blushes make my face look dirty or something <_<:rolleyes:

I think I would. I haven't placed a real full sized order yet...all my stuff is small, mini or sample sizes. :) Look out when I'm ready for full sizes. :P

Well, it is a little more peachy IMHO, but not too much so. It's such a nice subtle shade that it just looks like a nice little glow. I'm wearing it today, and I truly this this one might be my favorite that I've tried so far.

I don't notice the shimmer once it's on, and in fact even in the jar it doesn't look that shimmery to me.

Donna, YAY, full sizes!!! It's a happy day within this EM bunch when you have graduated to full size containers :lol:

So both Donna and Mango prefer the shimmer finish in the blushes, interesting. Someone else, and forgive me I forget who, preferred the matte.

I thought I would lean towards the matte, but I guess I am going to have to give both a try and find out now aren't I?!?! :lol:

Ok, a small gripe about the USPS tracking system, well I lied it's a big gripe....it totally BITES!

They have given me the same message for 3 days now, which is basically no information other than to confirm they have indeed received electronic info from the shipper that my package has been shipped but no other info as to where or when or how is available :blink::blink:

USPS is almost always like that for me...I get the packages before they update the info!

omgosh you will be so excited when you get your full size containers! They are really huge compared to the mini ones :D

I think I'll switch my sample blush to chit chat :D I was going to sample natural..but hmm...maybe I'll put natural in my mini kit instead. Such big decisions. lol

It does! Despite that, I think USPS ususally ships faster than DHL...

Yes, exactly what I was trying to say, lol. See, we did it again!

This was my dilemma.

My first sample blush I picked on look alone, from the website. I wanted a deep rosey color and B&B "looked" to fit the bill.

Well if you remember me saying, it is orange. ORANGE. I am sure it looks beautiful on dfferent skin tones, but not mine.

Then I got Apple in my second sample kit, very pretty color, but there is just a tinge of peach in it I find.

So for my sample kit #3, I was looking closely in the bottom left corner at Chit Chat, All Smiles, Best Friends, and Sunday Brunch. I really want a pinky rose with no orange/peach.

I agonized over the decision :lol: but finally went with the lighter out of all the above, Best Friends.

Now I am wondering if I should have gone with All Smiles, or Chit Chat.

The blushes are making me :wacko: .

Does anyone have All Smiles?

Julie,

Chit Chat will probably not be pink enough for you, it is described as a pink/rosy color, but to me it looks a little peach.

All smiles is described as "Brings out a wonderful fresh pinky-peach burst of color for those spring and summer days." :lol:

Yes Susie you must come talk make-up with us!!

Another brand?? How scandalous!! :lol::lol:

Well ladies, my sample kit arrived :D

Yay for Pick Me Up Pink!

And Best Friends Blush is actually a really pretty color in the jar, it's a little more pinky/violet than rose, but nevertheless it's pretty.

I must experiment and get back to you on the results!

Wow, I can't keep up with this thread! My lack of sleep has been keeping me away and now I'm so far behind. Please don't kick me out girlfriends!

Hey, tomorrow is the big day. The one we've all been waiting for,lol! :o

This is exciting! Oh crap, now I won't be able to sleep tonight with all this excitement, lol!

Julie, do let us know how you like your samples. :)

I can't compare it to DVR and Photo Album, but it is a peachy pink tone. The shimmer isn't really that obvious on your face, but it does look a bit shiny in the jar, lol!

I have it on today and like it. One thing for sure, I use a lot more makeup when I use Nick Nack because it is lighter than Chit Chat. I brushed too much on at first and had to rub some off.

Oh and someone mentioned Sunday Brunch - it's orange-ish for sure!

I don't know what time they post it, but yes I did already check and as of 6:23 am EST, it is not up yet. :rolleyes:

(even though it is only 5:23 am there, they should have that special posted...it is the 10th after all!)
