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

Recommended Posts

Okay everyone,

I haven't been following this thread :ph34r: because you guys are just SO busy! :lol:

I have a question though, how do you get it to last all day? It looks great for a couple hours, then it doesn't look good anymore. My mom thinks my skin is mineral hungry! :lol: :lol: ;)

Any ideas? I thought about using my smashbox photo finish, but it usually clogs my pores and I tend to break out when I wear it, which is *why* I am using EM, to PREVENT break-outs! :P

Hi Kassandra! Maybe your skin is just eating the minerals :lol::lol: Have you tried using a finishing powder under and/or over the foundation? Silk powder is good. I also really like the Finishing Dust.

Gosh Kassandra, I don't know...how does it not look good...does the color change? or does it get shiney, or lose color? I can see that Mango answered you...maybe a finishing dust would help as she suggested.

OMGosh :lol: they just delivered my box. I am so excited...I haven't even really looked at the colors YET, but they sent the regular eye shadow BRUSH!!!! Yay! I thought I was getting another angled brush, but YAY, got the regular brush. That ALONE is worth the wait, lol. They also sent another liner brush...can't have too many of those, and of course the fan brush.

Okay, without flipping over the next roll of the tissue, Pink Ribbon looks to be a very nice pink. Corner Office looks a bit dark but a nice color overall. The natural reflections looks like a nice color for the finishing dust.

Smokey Pink doesn't look very pink, lol. More mauve, but a nice smokey color.

Okay, turning the tissue now... :lol:

Holy COW, did I order TWO 10 mini eyeshadows??? I've most certainly got 20 eyeshadows here, lol. NO wait...they mixed in the sampler kit with the eyeshadows, lol. Phew! I thought for a minute I got someone else's order. :)

It should be illegal to have this much fun!

Okay back in a little while once I've really looked at the eye colors.

omg u are a nut, post the colors that u like and im going to order the same ones lol, i was going to do the 48 dollar kit thing but im thinking eyeshadown and lipstick will be better, since i like the first foundation that i put on today, but i do need a brighter blush, this one kinda just blended in foundation lol.

Didn't mean to make anyone feel bad, lol. It's just that it took me a LOOONNNNNGGGG time to figure out why the minerals weren't coming out, lol. I finally stuck my fingernail in there and started scraping and to my amazement, the tape came off, lol.

This is so funny--the only reason I knew about this is because BE is the same way.

Good thing you mentioned it :)

:lol: Paula...I won't post how I like them until I actually wear them...I'm finding that how they look in the jar isn't necessarily a good indicator of how they look on me. :P

New Car Smell look peach to me, but it's a nice light shade so might not be TOO peach. Favorite Hoodie looks interesting and I can't wait to try it.

And, for some reason I'm really excited to try the Cypress and Pressed Olive eye shadows...I don't wear green so not sure how this will look, lol.

I think Pink Ribbon might be a very nice color...may wear that tomorrow. :P

I'm wearing comfy today...it looks copper in the jar, but it's smokey brown on me with just a touch of copper sparkle at certain angles.

I just got exhale in today's shipment so haven't tried it yet....it's a fairly medium to dark brown with some reddishness to it (in the jar...it will probably look totally different on, lol).

I LOVE the smokey eyeliner.

Some of the other ones are in my NEXT 10 mini kit which is in my cart as we speak. :P

Mango sorry about the news you got at the dermatologist, absolutely nothing can be done? Did you get a second opinion, or a third?? Any alternatives?

I don't really have anything EM related to add...........carry on!

(with his x-wife and her husband.....I know, I know....but we all get along very well and it has always made it so easy for my step-daughter)....anyway I always like to look my best on those nights :P As much as I like her it always feels better to be cuter..LOL

Hi Kassandra! Maybe your skin is just eating the minerals :lol::lol: Have you tried using a finishing powder under and/or over the foundation? Silk powder is good. I also really like the Finishing Dust.

That's what my mom thinks! :lol: My skin is hungry! LOL! That would be a heck of a testimonial, "My skin eats your minerals!" :lol: :lol: :D

I will try what you suggested. I have a full basket, so I am going to order another sampler kit. My only thing is I need to figure out how to make it long-lasting otherwise I am going to be stuck with 1000 different make-ups that I won't use! :lol:

Gosh Kassandra, I don't know...how does it not look good...does the color change? or does it get shiney, or lose color? I can see that Mango answered you...maybe a finishing dust would help as she suggested.

It's like I am not wearing any make up anymore after a few hours. It's literally like it soaks into my skin. Its' very strange. I used to have this happen with my liquid foundation also, so I don't think it's specific to EM, but it's just annoying. If I go out all day, I look like I forget to get ready in the morning! LOL!

Okay, LOVING what I've tried so far from the new order.

First...Sunlight concealor. LOVE IT! I can't take away my bags, but did a great job at lessening the dark spots underneath them, lol. I also used it on my eyelids because the skin there always looks a bit dark and my eyes are deeper set. Made a big difference...and I'm not even wearing any other eye stuff today...just a little foundation over the concealor.

Second...Pink Ribbon Blush. May be my NEW FAVORITE, lol. Love this. In the jar it looks like a nice light pink. It looked slightly darker once I shook some out onto my margerine lid, lol, but on it's a perfect pink for me.

Third...Natural Reflections Fair finishing powder. LOVE IT! :lol: I never really liked BE mineral veil because I could always "see" it on my skin...my face looked a bit ghostly with it on...I see that they have a tinted one now, and maybe I would have liked that if I didn't start breaking out with BE stuff, but this...this is just about perfect. I can't "see" it at all, but it has given me a nice softer look. LOVE IT! I used it with the brush that came originally with my mineral veil...nice big fluffy retractable brush.

I also tried a little experiment which didn't quite work. I've been reading the EM forum and there is a thread about making your own lip gloss. You mix a little of the minerals into some vaseline or oil. I tried it with the Pink Ribbon and coconut oil and it was a little too liquidy, so it didn't quite work, but I could tell that THAT would have been a PERFECT pink lip gloss for me.

I have some vaseline at home, but there's no way I'd put anything from THAT container on my mouth, lol. At one time I used vaseline on my feet, and well, double dipped, lol. So I'll pick up a new container this weekend and I think that will work perfectly for the lip gloss thing...can't wait to try it.

My husband and I have a date night Sat. (with his x-wife and her husband.....I know, I know....but we all get along very well and it has always made it so easy for my step-daughter)....anyway I always like to look my best on those nights :P As much as I like her it always feels better to be cuter..LOL

:lol: another date night! :P

It's like I am not wearing any make up anymore after a few hours. It's literally like it soaks into my skin. Its' very strange. I used to have this happen with my liquid foundation also, so I don't think it's specific to EM, but it's just annoying. If I go out all day, I look like I forget to get ready in the morning! LOL!

Wow! I'm wondering if a "primer" would stop that from happening...EM is working on one I think. I know there are some others out there, but don't know what's in them. Trying to think of something else that could sort of be a barrier of sorts....can't think of any at the moment.

Donna, sounds like you have been having fun experimenting :lol:

Glad you are liking all your new things from your order.

I have just the Finishing Dust, I wonder how this compares to the Natural Reflections finishers?? Is finishers a word?!

Kass, are you moisturizing your skin really well at night and in the morning?? I wonder if this would help saturate your skin so that it doesn't absorb all the make up after you apply it.

The primer Donna mentioned is a thought too.

Julie, don't know about the finishing dust...I'm thinking of getting some pretty quickly though because if they discontinue it, I'll not get a chance to try it. Course that could be bad too if I like them. :P The "dusts" seem to have neat things added like "amino acids". :P Not sure why you need those on your skin, but hey, sounds good. :)

Lol, I'm sure you will be the cutest with your new EM makeup!

OMGosh, I went to Walmart twice today (that's another story, lol) and the man who checks receipts at the door said "hope you found everything you needed" so I said "I should by now, this is my 2nd visit today" and he said "well, I hope you come back again" with a flirtatious grin, I was like running out of there!!!!!! Can't tell you the last time this old lady has been hit on. LOL! :lol:

That's what my mom thinks! :lol: My skin is hungry! LOL! That would be a heck of a testimonial, "My skin eats your minerals!" :lol: :lol: :D

Hey Kassandra, I remember reading some place (maybe on the EM website) that people use a light mist of water to help 'set' the makeup. I've never tried it myself, but maybe it is worth a try.

:wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:

Okay, LOVING what I've tried so far from the new order.

I have Pink Ribbon coming - it sounds nice. Let us know how the vaseline works...um...when you get your new jar, lol!

Is it wierd that I signed up to be notified by text message on my cell phone when anything on my EM DHL shipment changes?

You will officially move up in cult ranking if you make that move! :D

My DHL tracking has not been updated since 2:33 am on Tuesday morning. I'm sweating it out here! :unsure:
