TRAITOR!!!!

How can you live with yourself?!?!?!

I know I am so ashamed :ph34r::lol: EM might have to revoke that special cult founder's discount I've been getting LOL

This was just stricly liquid foundation, right?

Well my samples are powder, because that's the only way to sample the different shades, but (I think) I'm going to order some liquid if I find a good match. I'm not on the edge of my seat waiting for this order to arrive though. The Aubrey website just doesn't have the same effect as EM site. It's just not the same type of experience LOL

Well, as I am sure I am next in line for the biggest cult spender, you can go right on ahead and order some other brands because then maybe they'll give that cult founder discount to me. :P:lol: But, feel free to skip over my reply to the next quote. :P

Hey where's Susie? She needs to come tell us about her Luxe stuff!

:ph34r: OMGosh, I have about 20 samples in my shopping cart over there. Haven't ordered anything yet though.

Ha, Mango (if you DIDN'T skip over that reply, lol), I haven't ACTUALLY put the order in. :P:lol:

Okay, I've been reading this thread for about a week now. I'm not really a make-up queen, usually wearing foundation and lip gloss only.

I guess I HAVE to try it. I've got my free sample kit loaded, but I don't have any brushes. Can you all tell me what brushes I need to have?

Julie, are you still with me. Our leaders are betraing us. I can't believe what I'm reading about liquid foundations. OMGosh!

Hi CheriA,

Glad your joining us! I'll just give you an idea what I use for what, but there are a list of brushes on EM with descriptions that might help you to choose.

For foundation I like the Premium Foundation Brush.

For eyeliner I bought the real thin eye liner brush, but it's not on the site right now.

For blush I'm using the Long Handled Kabuki and it is a bit big so the Baby Kabuki would probably work nicer. Anyone have it yet and can share?

I don't have an eye shadow or conceler brush yet so I'm winging it with those.

I really think good quality brushes and a brush for each application is important. It really makes a difference how the makeup goes on a looks.

Good luck, let us know what colors you picked out! :)

EDIT: Now that I've gone into detail about brushes I re-read your post and see you only wear foundation. In that case the Premium or Long Handled Kabuki. Now I guess you know how this thread got to be so long, lol!

Oh yes Joni, I am with you!

Our EM religion is crumbling right before our eyes! They are being drawn to the dark side, dabbling in unsacred practices.....different brands, liquid foundation??

WELL, I never!!!!

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

OMgosh this thread gives me the giggles!

You know Donna and Mango I'm just giving you a hard time :D :D

Welcome Cheri!

I'm not really a make-up queen either, but it's great to find a line that is gluten-free, and free of so many other allergens, that doesn't irritate the skin AND it looks pretty darn good. Once you try it you just might be hooked!

I also would recommend a kabuki type brush to apply the foundation, it really blends the mineral make up into the skin really well and gives great coverage.

Yeah, I hate companies that use DHL and I can't figure why they do. With DHL you can pay for 2 day delivery however DHL won't guarantee 2 day delivery... if they don't guarantee it why am I paying for it? I guess they must be really cheap. I don't know for sure but I don't like them.

I paid for my second batch of make up to be shipped 2 day. That was 4 days ago and I leave on vacation Monday morning for 2 weeks. :(

No, no, no!!! I want EVERYONE to get their makeup FAST!!! I am so sad that some of you are waiting, waiting and waiting!

Okay, today's colors:

Okay, really one ONE color, lol. I'm pretty happy with the foundation, finishing powder and concealor, so that's all the same.

Blush: Favorite Hoodie! I think this may be my new f.....

j/k!!! :lol:

But seriously, I DO really like this. It was VERY scarey though when I tapped it out onto my margarine lid...it looked VERY dark and VERY brown, lol, but it's such a very nice subtle shade on...looks quite natural actually. I like it a lot, but not sure it outranks Pink Ribbon or Nick Nack as my favorite, lol. Up for tomorrow, New Car Smell.

Eye color: I have to say that I don't think I've found a color yet that just screams favorite. There are about 16 colors I have left to order, and I haven't tried all the colors I've ordered to far yet, but nothing so far has just really stood out as something I have to have. Today I'm wearing Oaisis as an all-over color, and I put a little Cypress near the lash line. Not bad, both are pretty subtle on me, so you really can't tell I'm even wearing eyeshadow...that was okay today because I didn't put on any other eye makeup, just really wanted to semi test the colors.

So, I'm having absolutely NO problem finding blush colors I love (I love all the colors I've tried so far, lol), but am having a hard time with the eye colors...hoping that that absolute favorite is in the next mini kit I order, lol. Otherwise, I may just have to defect to that other site for eye color. :P:lol:

Geez, some cult this is.....

Well, I haven't actually PLACED an order with anyone else yet, lol. But is that the same thing as lusting after it in my mind? :lol:

I guess I HAVE to try it. I've got my free sample kit loaded, but I don't have any brushes. Can you all tell me what brushes I need to have?

Hey, welcome to the madness! If you've never used mineral makeup before I'd suggest the long handled kabuki at the EM site, or a similar type of brush made for mineral makeup. The premium foundation brush is good too. The EM brushes are good quality and are reasonably priced. I think the long handled Kabuki might be my favorite brush, lol. I use it for blush mostly, but if I didn't already have a brush that I got from BE years ago, I would have purchased another one for foundation.

EDIT: Now that I've gone into detail about brushes I re-read your post and see you only wear foundation. In that case the Premium or Long Handled Kabuki. Now I guess you know how this thread got to be so long, lol!

Sorry about the delay in gettting your makeup. Hope it will be there soon.

A 2 week vacation sound so nice right now, where are you going (if I may ask)?

Well, I haven't actually PLACED an order with anyone else yet, lol. But is that the same thing as lusting after it in my mind? :lol:

Yes, but once the cart is full the temptation only gets worse. :o

Did you get to try Exhale yet Donna?

Julie, I'm glad your still a faithfull EM gal! I thought there would be a whole new thread started. I keep waiting to see it: Aubrey Nicole - Great gluten-free Liquid Mousse Foundation! :lol::lol::lol:

A bit of good new! My makeup is finally with the delivery courier today. :D

:lol: You guys are cracking me up!

Ya know what though, after the order I got last night, I think I am back to being a bonafide member of the cult. I was going to take a picture of it just to show you guys how crazy it was (quantity-wise lol) but my camera batteries died. <_<

Here's what I'm wearing today:

Pressed powder in Fair Pink:

I thought multi-tasking was my perfect match, but this one is even better. I think I love this stuff :wub:. It's full coverage foundation, and it goes on really nicely with the flat top brush. The only thing I don't like is it has a slight smell to it (kind of like a new car, funnily enough). I'll have to see it how stays on throughout the day.

Pink Ribbon:

Love this! It's light and pretty and not orange :D

DVR Pink on my lips:

Very pretty...kind of like photo album but lighter and pinker.

Smokey Pink and Camomile on my eyes:

Love these. Smokey Pink is actually a bit purple-ish and Camomile is a really nice gold highlighter. They are both really subtle and natural looking.

Natural face color:

This actually has a nice bronzing/skin evening-out effect.

Light Pink Blush:

I put this over the Pink Ribbon just to brighten up my face a bit.

Okay well that's today....tomorrow I will have a whole different look :lol::lol:

I tested all the colors on my hand when I first opened the box, mainly b/c I didn't know what else to do with it all LOL. I really really love Starry Eyed. It's really georgous. I think Samba Lessons is a nice dark brown as well.

I don't remember what else I have, but I'll post more reviews as I try stuff lol.

How does the pink on your eyes look? I never look good with that Im a blonde with sort of bloodshot eyes (contacts) and when I put pink on my lid I feel like it looks like I have pink eye! I'm too heavy handed I guess.

I just hope everyone who is anxiously awaiting their orders gets them today!!!!!!!!!

I am not mad at everyday, im mad at dhl and at myself for changing to dhl when i knew the post office is faster lol. I am just not the most patient person lol.

Paula, I didn't use DHL and I still had delays with some of the orders. So shipping all around has been unpredictable.

:lol:

Now this is interesting to me. I was staying away from the blushes that mentioned brown, or a hint of brown. Maybe they desreve a look? Maybe I am overlooking and passing up GREAT colors?

I am thinking about trial sizes in order to try all the colors, I wonder how much they are going to be???

Otherwise, I may just have to defect to that other site for eye color. :P:lol:

:o

YES, and this may call for an intervention :lol:

I'm going to Ft. Lauderdale! My BF and I go every year, he plays lacrosse in a big tournament there each year. We are there for a week.

How fun! Have a great time :)

Natural face color:

Ooooh Mango, this sounds like something I just might HAVE to have!!!!

Just some useless ramblings and factoids :lol:

I figured out that there are 30 more eye colors to order...13 of those are already in my cart, so amongst all of that I should surely find my perfect colors, lol. :lol: I also have a lot left to try at home...probably at least 11 that I haven't even opened yet. And, I need to revisit a lot of the ones I've already tried. I hardly wear the full eye makeup anymore so it's hard to fit them all in, lol.

I've received 9 blushes, tried 8 of them and loved all 8, lol. New Car Smell is the only one I haven't tried...that's up tomorrow. Think so far, Pink Ribbon is still my favorite.

Now this is more like it, back to obsessive cult-like behavior :lol:

Impressive Donna, you are not far away from reaching EM color expert status!

I can't believe nobody has mentioned yet that a new special is only 2 days away :o
