Recommended Posts

Beautiful picture, Mango B)

Very pretty!

hehe thanks, Patti.

My butt hurts from sitting on it too much today (what a waste of a Sexy Sunday LOL j/k) so I'm off to the gym. Have a lovely evening everyone.

Hopefully we'll wake up to a new special tomorrow :D

The longer it takes the more times I have to change my eyeshadow sampler.

:lol:

This is my problem too, but I keep changing out my blushes.

I don't know why this is, but choosing blushes has been so much more complicated, confusing, and difficult for me than choosing eye shadow colors. I am constantly changing my mind :wacko:

Gorgeous avatar Mango, your EM looks so good!!!!!

You look great Mango!!! And your off to the gym? Woooohooooo!

I have the hardest time with blushes too. I think they are less forgiving then the eye shadows.

Ok, I've been searching through the EM board for ideas.

Anyone else have problems with their eye shadows staying on all day. Mine seems to disappear toward the end of the day?

Solution: Put a layer of foundation or finishing powder under the eye shadow. Today I'll try it and see!

I always put an layer of foundation under my eye shadow lol. It still comes off for me but then again i rub my eyes alot during the day so maybe that is why it comes off lol.

ok 2.5 hours then im looking for new makeup, so it better show up lol.

Yes, I've done that and it works great!!! I've also copied all the color swatches to a Word doc (hey, I sit at a computer all day and ocassionaly have a lot of time on my hands, lol).

LOL, I should have known. I thought about copying all the colors, but haven't done so YET.

Mango, your picture is beautiful.

Well, I don't know how much longer I can wait for a special to show up. I need a new sample kit of foundations. Do they ever just not have a special?

It won't load for me either. Maybe they are finally doing the website upgrade they keep talking about. Or maybe the next special is so gynormous it crashed the whole thing. :lol:

Thanks, you guys are so nice. B)

One day if I'm feeling brave I'll post before *shudder* and after pics. Hmmm...on second thought, maybe I'll just keep pretending that my face with eight layers of foundation and ten layers of concealer is what I really look like :lol:

So who's going to be next to post pics? Colleen, Joni, Paula? C'mon guys, we all want to see how fabulous you look! :D

I can't get onto the EM website either. Maybe they are launching their new one? That would be so exciting! :)

Julie - I'm on a mission to find us an EM equivalent of Warmth. Everytime I google it for an answer this thread comes up :lol: , so that doesn't help. I came close last night wtih Tea Time, but it's a bit more peachy and less red/brown. I'm thinking maybe the everyday bronzer or bouquet?

Hello all. :lol: I stumbled across this site the other day, and ordered the sample kit when I found this thread....I can't get over the prices, they're so affordable! Everyone here seems to love the stuff, so I'm anxious to try it out. Thank you all for sharing this information!

Okay so I ordered on a tuesday or wed. and got them on a friday. just the samples of course, I got the matte, the semi matte, a multitasker, and a sunshine thing, and the pink ribbon blush. its is soo lightweight and natural feeling everyone one at work couldnt even tell i had it on, except that i told them. i find the multi task one works really well. I am absolutely loving the everyday minerals, and when the tax return comes in, i am going to get more, so i have to use the samples until then, but it doesnt take much. this stuff is amazing, i am actually going to order my sister some samples, so she too can try it.

Well, I was going to post this picture of myself, but I thought it would make you all feel bad about how beautiful I am. :lol: It's not really me in the pic - I don't think she's heard of Everyday Minerals yet...

Welcome to the cult, Jodi and Shannon! You will find it is very addictive. I want their website to come back up so I can look at more EM makeup!

Welcome Shannon and Jodi!

Glad you both joined the group.

Yes Jodi, it is so nice to have makeup on and not feel like your face is heavy! I think that's one of the best things about it.

Well, the EM site is back up but I can't see anything different about it. I checked 'news', the special, brushes, and the eye and blush colors and it all looks the same to me. I wonder what's going on over there?

Ha! LOL Colleen. Is big hair back? I need to know these things before I go to my hairdresser next Wednesday, lol! :lol:

Maybe I'm dating myself (I hate that phrase), but we used to refer to ladies that teased their hair all up like that as the 'lady with the big hair' when describing them. LOL!

I think there's an "about everyday minerals" section that's new, or did I just never notice that? (just grasping for something here LOL) No new special yet though.

So I think I figured out what's causing the little bumps I'm getting all over my cheeks (since I'm sure you are all on the edges of your seats, dying to know :rolleyes: ).

I've been using toxic mascara :ph34r: and I noticed yesterday that when I remove my eye make-up, I swipe the cotton pad thing across my eyes then across the tops of my cheeks. So for now, I'm going to blame Maybelline instead of EM :D I'll have to pick up some Ecco Bella and see if that makes a difference.

OMG Mango--I'll bet it is the Maybelline that is causing your breakouts. I had to stop using it after many years--I loved the stuff, and had been using it since high school, I think.

When I looked over all my products for gluten, the formula I used contained wheat germ oil--I don't know if they all do or not.

Ecco Bella is good, but if you want to pick something up quick at the drugstore, Almay "One Coat" mascaras are all gluten-free. I verified that by phone, and use the nourishing one with no problem.

:o:o

Thanks for the info Patti. I saw the Maybelline stuff for $4 and couldn't resist :ph34r: (everyone raves about that dang stuff). I just looked up the ingredients, and I can't decode the words well enough to know if there's wheat in it, but OMG it's scary:

Water, Beeswax, Ozokerite, Shellac, Glyceryl Stearate, Triethanolamine, Propylene Glycol, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Methlparaben, Quaternium 15, Simethicone, Quaternium 22, Butylparaben, May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Carmine (CI 75470).

Compared to Ecco Bella:

Purified water, carnauba wax, palmitic acid (from palm oil), clay, methylparaben, propylparaben, iron oxide

I hope EM comes out with a mascara soon! :D

Dang, I love my Maybelline(sp?) Looks like its time for some new mascara...I never thought i would be so happy with a make up, since all the liquids make me break out horrible, doesnt matter what i was using, but so far so good, been wearing EM for 3 days, and normally it takes just a day to break out. so i think i found the "Good Stuff"!!!!

guess its time to go look at all the good stuff on the EM site...see what else i can spend money on...my Boyfriend sean is going to kill me....lol

Wow--those ingredients do sound scary--shellac???

The one that at least used to contain the wheat germ oil is the pink tube with the bright green top. Maybe they at least stopped using that.

I agree--can't wait till EM comes out with one! :)

Thank you guys for the welcome. :) I was diagnosed with a wheat and egg allergy last month, and am just starting to eat the way I should be today. I heard about some makeup causing issues, and that's when I found you all. :)

Pity about the mascara...I've been using that pink tube with the green top forever!

I'm so excited about EM, I haven't even gotten my sample kit, and I've got am "I Can't Believe It" kit almost filled already!
