No new special yet. I think I need to do some deep breathing. Funny thing is, I don't even know what I want to order yet. I know I want another eyeshadow sampler, but than I will have to choose colors. And we all know how hard that is! ;)

Exactly why within 1 minute of sending in my last order I had another mini eyeshadow kit going, lol. The colors have changed a few times, but less decision making on D-Day. :lol:

I have to agree with Donna about the knick knack. That stuff goes on really nicely.

Okay so for my next order I really want waffle cone and a long handled kabuki. Do you think they will have a special for orders over $14? :lol:

And I know I'm being a traitor lol, but I'm kind of excited to get my Aubrey Nicole samples. I think they'll be delivered today! :D

Okay, here is our list:

1. You choose your clothes according to the makeup colors your going to wear.

2. You plan a day ahead what makeup your wearing the next day.

3. You know you must have every brush EM puts out.

4. You spend over $30.00 in makeup because you like the new "special".

5. You wear makeup even when your planning on staying home for the day.

6. You plan a shopping trip centered solely around buying "accessories" for your makeup habit.

7. You remove and reapply a full face of makeup more than twice in one day just to see what a different combination looks like.

8. You compulsively check online to see when the EXACT MINUTE is that your EM order will arrive.

9. When your order arrives, you speed home and lock yourself in the bathroom with it so the kids can't interrupt as you paw through it.

10. You start looking at complete strangers and analyzing their makeup and think about how EM would look on them.

11. You take complete strangers hostage from other threads in hopes of raising money to feed your EM addiction.

12. You begin to think of all colors as base, lid, crease, and liner.

13. You're known to stalk DHL vans.

14. You put on foundation (and a bit of blush) to go running, and justify it by telling yourself that the make-up will provide good sun protection.

15. When you refer to your online make-up friends in everyday conversation, people look at you like this -----> :huh:

16. You own twelve shades of blush, and plan on ordering more.

17. You considered choosing ten shades of eye shadow an extremely difficult decision.

18. You couldn't decide whether you were warm, cool, beige or neutral, and you REALLY couldn't decide if you wanted matte, semi-matte, intensive or original-glo (and you ponder these things often).

19. Sometimes you feel like kermit.

20. The day is missing something if you didn't 'mix' more than one makeup color together.

21. You know the exact day the EM special will change. And you are seriously ticked off if they extend the current special.

22. On the day the special is supposed to change, the first thing you do in the morning is log into the EM site to see what the new special is. If it hasn't changed yet, you send EM an email to ask what time zone the change will occur in.

23. The second thing you do on the change of special day is to log on to this thread to make sure everyone else saw it and ask what they are ordering.

24. You are seriously bummed out if there are NO new posts in the EM thread.

25. You check the EM site 3-10 times a day JUST to see if there are any new colors or products.

26. you wake up early with the excuse to exercise when really you want an hour to put on your makeup while the kids are still asleep.

27. You cant wait to buy all the brushes and eye shadows in one shopping trip.

28. You email all of your "real life" friends and tell them about EM.

29. You talk so much about EM, your mom tells you to order her some.

30. Foundation, one type of concealer, two shades of blush and one shade of eye shadow is considered a light make-up day (because you usually wear three types of concealer and four shades of eyeshadow)...

31. You've gotten up at 5, spent all day at work, went to chorale practice without having time to open your makeup, get home at ten completely exhausted and still feel compelled to try out the chit chat blush because it's Donna's favorite.....or....wait, was that supposed to be knick knack? Shoot, when is that next special.

32. When you discover that the minerals are discoloring your sink you realize you'll have to do your remodel in "fair medium".

SEE, just wait til you get Pink Ribbon and see if THAT doesn't make your head spin trying to decide which one is your favorite. :P

I'm sure at SOME point they will. :P (Pssst, love the long handled kabuki)

So I'm sitting here looking at my new eyeglass case and have decided that I want THAT shade of eyeshadow, lol. It's a lovely pearly lavendar shade. Perhaps this shade and a lighter version. :lol:

Have you tried Snowflakes? How about Bedtime Story? I bet you could even mix the two together.

Soft Bronzer - I like this. It's really really really light, but it's great - adds a touch of color without looking obvious.

I have natural reflections pink. I like this one too. :) Most days I use finishing dust though.

Haven't tried Snowflakes yet...it's one of the next up...it looks too dark in the jar though, but maybe on it will be better. Bedtime Story...wait...nope, don't have it and not in my next order but perhaps it should be, lol.

Not yet. Probably the next order after the the one that's in my cart (IF THEY EVER BLOOMIN CHANGE THE SPECIAL, lol).

Snowflakes is sooooo not too dark! :lol: I hate dark eyeshadows but this one is perfect as a crease color for me. Pots and pans makes a nice base for it, if you have that one. :D

You must put Snowflakes over your already applied Pots and Pans as soon as you get home! :lol:

I just realized I still need to try cypress. How do you guys wear that one? As an eyeliner? Maybe wet? Hmm....

Ok thanks :) Soft Bronzer is going into my cart.

The Natural Reflections is what you said gave a nice blended in bronzer effect, right?

Not yet. Probably the next order after the the one that's in my cart (IF THEY EVER BLOOMIN CHANGE THE SPECIAL, lol).

:lol:

What again is the number of blushes you DO have Donna??

And out of all those blushes you only like 2? Pink Ribbon and Nick Nack, is that correct?

I think I said that about Natural (the blush - not the finishing powder lol). Natural adds a bit of subtle color to may face and it blends everything nicely. Natural and Soft Bronzer are both good (in fact I think I'll use both tomorrow).

Natural is better as an all over face color that kind of diminishes things, while Soft is used kind of like BE Warmth, but it's much much much much lighter. Natural is sparkly (but the sparkles don't really show once you apply it) and Soft is matte.

I have Swimming Pool - I'm wearing it today in fact. It looks really brown in the jar, but I like it on. It has no sparkle, so it's good for days when you don't want that.

Haven't tried Snowflakes yet...it's one of the next up...it looks too dark in the jar though, but maybe on it will be better. Bedtime Story...wait...nope, don't have it and not in my next order but perhaps it should be, lol.

I thought the same thing about snowflakes, but it's really not that dark when you put it on. I wore that one yesterday.

I just realized I still need to try cypress. How do you guys wear that one? As an eyeliner? Maybe wet? Hmm....

I am wearing Cypress today. I have it on as a shadow over rare silk with in the garden as a liner. Cypress also works well as a crease color over pressed olive.

Good China

Rare Silk

Samba Lessons

I think you are relly going to like all of those shadow colors. Good china is a great base when you want sparkles, Rare silk is great when you don't, and Samba Lessons makes a great liner over most of the shades.

Santa, I have been a good little girl. All I want for Christmas is for the EM special to change!!!

I just wore it as a lower lid color. It was very subtle.

What again is the number of blushes you DO have Donna??

And out of all those blushes you only like 2? Pink Ribbon and Nick Nack, is that correct?

:lol: I have tried 9 blushes, and SIX are my favorites with Nick Nack and Pink Ribbon being my all time best favorites, lol. Weekend Getaway was one of the first I tried and that was good too. The only one I DON'T like is New Car Smell, lol.

THAT'S why I need a new special...I don't want another sample of new car smell, lol. Dang next special can be just about ANYTHING but that, lol. It't not a horrible color, but it just turned orange, and I don't want orange...brown okay, no orange. But I don't have strong feelings about this or anything. :P

How convenient! You're wearing all the colors we are curious about (or you wore them yesterday :P )

I have pressed olive, so I'll try cypress as a crease color tomorrow.

Any chance you're also wearing waffle cone today? :lol:

I have it, but I haven't used it as an eyeshadow. I think I tried it as a blush...must not have knocked me over because I don't remember how I liked it...I wrote on my little spreadsheet (yes I have a spreadsheet so I can keep all this stuff straight, lol) that I liked it as a blush, but I don't seem to remember it that way now, lol.
