Yes, do tell what your favorites are.

Ack, I am so behind! I will be back later.....

:lol::D:lol: You girls are so funny!!

Thanks to all of the tips from all of you, and some browsing at the EM thread, I decided to try it again today. MUCH better!! There was a tip there to put foundation on FIRST and then a little bit of concealer. I tried that and it worked.

I do think my face is a little itchy though? I'm heading out to the grocery store and the HFS this afternoon. We'll see if DH notices the difference in my face when he gets home, lol!

I've been a lurking cult member but decided to speak up.

And now I want a nice new haircut...and maybe some earrings....I'm turning all girly, it's so weird. But fun :)

-Em

Welcome to the cult, Em! You can check out any time you like, but never leave. :) Tell us what you are wearing and how beautiful you look. You are exactly like me - I never wore makep before this thread got started. I still had all the makeup I wore to my wedding 12 years ago, and it was hardly touched! This really is fun, isn't it.

Hi Em! Welcome to the crazy make-up cult thread...Hey, is it a coincidence that your name is EM and you love EM makeup, lol?!!!

What Em forgot to tell you is that her name didn't used to be Em, it was Christina. She had it legally changed to Em when she secretly joined the cult. :lol:

Accckkkk! The special box is gone completely...

Could it be...

Might it be....

Or is this just another FAKE OUT! :P

Breathe deep - remember this is what happened last time too. The special disappeared and then later that night the new one came up. I bet before we all go to bed tonight there is a new special. I think I'll go to bed now!!! :)

Wow, this cult is so welcoming! How nice ^_^

One of my favorites that I haven't seem mentioned here is the Morocco eyeshadow used as a liner with some of the brown shades. I love hot chocolate/countryside/morocco :) I also really like the cypress eyeshadow as a liner, but I haven't found really good highlighter/lid shades to go with it. I think I've just been using baby bath so far.

I also tried one of the cleaning bars - the bergamont/sage/niaouli one- and it's been very nice. The scent is nice without being way too strong. I have normal/dry skin, and the cleaning bar plus horsetail everyday everywhere is leaving my skin nice and soft and glowy! It's so much nicer than everything I tried before. :wub:

I've been mostly using apple as blush, but if I'm not careful I can wind up with way too much (I have really light skin- sandy fair beige). I think I might try the cherry fizz eyeshadow as a blush, it might be more subtle. Nick-nack is in my cart waiting for the new special!

Um, if I admit that I was running way late this morning and so I'm not wearing anything but some girl's day lip color, am I gonna get kicked out? I'll put more on when I get home, promise!

-Em (it was my name before EM too, I swear, honest....)

Glad you got better results with your second attempt Cheri :)

Did you mousturize really well before application? Could be the formulation too, Intensive is more drying and might be the cause of the itching.

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

Donna, you have a spreadsheet twin!!!

Maybe she'll come join our cult.....

You can check out any time you like, but never leave. :)

Bwah, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE love love Morocco too.

I hear Good China (as many ladies here have mentioned) and Rare Silk are good neutral highlighters for the lid and brow bone.

Excellent Patti :)

I can only vouch personally for the Sunlight concealer, it's really good at disguising the circles under the eyes.

I have heard good things about the other colors in your cart too.

I can personally vouch for the sunlight concealor myself....just look at my picture...I have HUGE bags under my eyes, but you can barely see them.

OMG--there are two of them!!!!!! :lol:

For a milli-hair of a second, the Specials page psychs me out and I think a new box is loading at the top to reveal what we have all been waiting for :blink:

......BUT then it jumps to the lip scrub and face wipes

I had an idea, maybe we could have a tip for he day, steal it from the EM board and post it over here, or if a cosmetically talented cult member stumbles on to something whilst experimenting they can share too.

Fun order Mango, and as Jess said don't forget a free sample kit!! Might as well, it's free.

I'm in a shopping kind of mood today, that could be dangerous :lol:

I've loaded several things in my cart that everyone has recommended because I don't want to forget, or have to go back in this thread, probably a spreadsheet would come in handy :lol:

I wish EM had a shopping cart feature like Old Navy where you could save things for later. Or a wish list you could add things to, that way you could gather things together that you want to try and save them and then you wouldn't have to clear your cart everytime you are going to make a purchase and then forget all those things you put in.

Does that make sense?

So I guess I'll order three more multi-tasking foundation samples lol some more pmup concealer and hmm...oh gosh, I'll have to think carefully about the blush selection :lol:

Another good idea!

Who has a tip of the day??? :D:D

Oh I have one: Jojoba oil as moisturizer. Just a few drops under your foundation. It's basic and all natural, and helps the foundation melt a bit into a creamier consistency. It works well under the eyes before adding sunlight concealer too. :)

p.s. I don't consider myself cosmetically talented, but I like the term. :lol:

Yep, quite used to that type of thing...I shop at several places that have a "wish list" or "save for later" area. Very handy.

Rare Silk
