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

Recommended Posts

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

:lol: Donna, I totally missed this! LOL! Twenty samples? You just must hit the purchase button! :ph34r::lol:

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::lol:

I should start that, just for kicks :P Everyone else on the board (and maybe all of you too) will simply think I'm crazy! :lol:

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

...

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

:lol: Yes, obsessive, um, that can be me, lol.

Oh, I keep looking at my calendar wondering if it's the 19th yet. :lol: Although if one picks apart their wording, it says to order the current special BEFORE the 18th. :lol: I keep hoping tomorrow morning I'll see a new special. :P

:lol: Donna, I totally missed this! LOL! Twenty samples? You just must hit the purchase button! :ph34r::lol:

Well, it's still in my cart, lol. I think I'm waiting for the perfect EM colors to manifest themselves before I stray. :P

omgosh I totally forgot about that :lol:

...probably at least 11 that I haven't even opened yet

Seriously????

:o

:huh:

:lol:

How do you resist? The first thing I do when I get my stuff is peel all the tape off each container and test all the colors on some part of my skin...hand..face..whatever :lol: Is that not a normal thing to do??? :unsure: LOL

Yeah, I've already received somewhere around 23 colors, lol.

I have to admit that it never occurred to me that I should test them on my arm or hand, lol. Since I don't wear full eye makeup a lot, it might take me years to work through all the colors I have if I wait for my eyes, lol.

Ditto!

Had I figured out the tape thing I would have done this myself :lol:

While we are posting about using blushes as eye colors, I will mention that I have done it with mostly good results. Jump rope and text message work really well. I tried it with chit chat, though, and it was way too much. I looked like I was posessed and my eyes were going to fly off of my head. I won't be doing that again. :lol: I ordered favorite hoodie in a sampler kit on my last order to try it because of what you beautiful and oh-so-experienced makeup mavens have said about it.

Just got a text message that my order is in SLC.......

Ya know that problem you're having with eye shadow? I'm having that same problem with blush. The perfect shade has not yet manifested itself...good thing I have six more colors at home to try before I give up :lol:

Julie...was it you who mentioned browns (can't remember...it was like a whole page ago lol)...you might want to give daydream a try (maybe a sample?) I haven't worn it on my face yet, but on my hand (LOL) it's a nice pinky, earthy brown....

I just put "everyday minerals" into the main search box (yeah, I actually searched for it :ph34r:). I wasn't too surprised to see it had a group though.

Well, girls, How is our fearless leader Mango going to have enough hours to devote to our cult if she keeps running around joining others?!?!? What happens when you need to get a new cult leader? Do you have elections? :lol:

Just kidding, Mango. You'll always be the one that started it all, and I always look forward to seeing what you are ordering and wearing.

Oh but of course I'm only there to spy on the other cults. I need to make sure ours remains the most powerful, strong (and obsessive) of them all :lol:

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

Yay! Thank you for the good wishes, I got mine about an hour ago. I won't be able to try them for a little while because I'm way behind schedule today and need to exercise first.

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.

Sounds like you have a lot of playing to do! And wow, you will have all their colors in no time. ;)

I should start that, just for kicks :P Everyone else on the board (and maybe all of you too) will simply think I'm crazy! :lol:

Hey, maybe it will be the next new makeup crazy thread. You never know! :P

Oh but of course I'm only there to spy on the other cults. I need to make sure ours remains the most powerful, strong (and obsessive) of them all :lol:

I knew you must have had a motive fearless, faithful online makeup cult friend and leader! :D

So with my new order the lineup for today is:

Morocco - eye liner and mid crease eye shadow, Diary - for the eye lid and Light Pink on the brow

Medium - matte foundation

Cookie Sheet - little scary looks kind of dark in the jar

Lips - Siesta

Finishing - Natural Reflections Pink - (oooooh, so pretty)

I'm so excited, all the colors look great. Text Message looks dark for a blush. Cypress looks promising. Photo Album, Cookie Sheet and Text Message all look like dark blushes in the jar. I'm really nervous about those! Ooooh and I have Apple, it looks great in the jar!

Well ladies, I have some playing to do, ta ta for now! B) (we need a smiley with makeup on!)

Cool, not in danger of getting kicked out just yet, lol.

I looked like I was posessed and my eyes were going to fly off of my head. I won't be doing that again.

:lol: !!!! Just what I needed to shake off a few hours of stupid busy legal work. :lol:

Hum, nope not Facebook. Maybe I should check that out...although I've been led to believe I might be too old. :lol:

Never give up! :lol:

Thanks for the welcome to the cult! :) I just placed my order for the free kit plus the baby kabuki brush. I think I am in the "cool" shades for foundation so I chose multi-tasking, medium-fair and ? I picked Jump Rope for my blush and Mint for concealer.

This all started because my friend, who works for Clinique, is allergic to their eye shadows. When I saw this thread, I emailed it to her. I wonder if she's sent off for her sample yet.

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??

Wow, that is a relief! I was beginning to get worried. That dark side and unsacred practices dabbling is a scary thing. :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.

Susan

Wow Susan, I hope you wonderful time, it sounds great!

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. <_<

Oh yes, that would have been the perfect redemption. A picture of all your treasured EM makeup!

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

OMGosh, you are right? What are we all thinking?

Joni,

paula

Thanks Paula, I really hope you get yours tomorrow. That would be great!

No, no, no, you're supposed to put the makeup on TO exercise. :lol: :lol:

Um...I confess that is what I did. See I put it all on because I was supposed to leave by 4:30pm, but the snow here got to be too much so I decided to forego taking the kids to karate and dance and put my makeup on instead, lol! And um...I still have to exercise.

I have no idea what Facebook is, can someone enlighten me?

Also, one caution on the brushes from EM. I got the concealer brush and it smells like glue in the most fowl way. I think it might be wise to wash them all off before we use them on our face. Something I never thought about until this brush wreaked of glue.

The concealer brush and eyeshadow brush are great and work really nice. I am in love with brushes!

Can anyone tell me how the Baby Kabuki compares in size to the Long Handled Kabuki? I'm curious about that.

Ok, I'm off to exercise for real this time, in keeping with my cult duties now that I'm all 'made up' I'm aloud to exercise. :D

Joni, YAY on getting your order!

Tell me how you like the siesta lip color when you try it out.

Paula, don't give up, HAVE FAITH :lol: You could possibly get it tomorrow.

Cheri, YAY you got your sample kit ordered!

Those are the foundation colors I use and I love them, perfect match, great coverage.

Glad you got the kabuki brush too, it really makes a difference with the application.

And bonus points for you, already recruiting members for us!! :lol:

No, no, no, you're supposed to put the makeup on TO exercise.

My thoughts exactly

:lol::lol::lol:

Well, girls, How is our fearless leader Mango going to have enough hours to devote to our cult if she keeps running around joining others?!?!? What happens when you need to get a new cult leader? Do you have elections?

I tried the Siesta and it is a really nice summer color. Light and pretty. I like the Spring Pink also as a summer/spring color because they are both so light.

Oh, I've never heard of Facebook, but I did hear of Myspace. It's a neat idea, not sure if I would use it though.

The DHL tracking system said my order was in the WACO HUB for 2 full days. The day they finally updated the site was also the day it arrived at my house.

Since I'm sure you are all dying to know LOL, here are my favorite colors of the day :lol: :

multi-tasking foundation in original glo:

I surprisingly really love this foundation formula. It's smooth and pretty and definitely more "glowy." I have oily skin though so we'll see how it lasts throughtout the day.

pots and pans

gorgeous pink eye shadow. love it. I have it on my lips too.

hot chocolate

Slightly shimmery light brown eye shadow. love it.

Starry Eyed

:wub::wub:

Makes a gorgeous dark brown eyeliner.

Daydream blush

oooh I like this one. The EM website's description is right on..."subtle nude earth tones" or something along those lines. I swiped a bit of light pink blush over it to brighten things up and vioala...a perfectly overdone and overly dramatic face for a casual friday at work LOL. I like it though :lol:
