I'm debating whether or not I should order.....I'm not sure if I am interested in all the freebies for this special and is a 5% discount really worth it? What if the next special contains free brushes???

Yeah, I figured if it's anything like it's been the next offer won't go up for a couple of weeks. By then I'll have a bunch more stuff I want anyway. I'm getting to the point where I'll be wanting to order some full sizes of my favorites, plus the brushes I want but don't have yet. And, I figure 5% is better than nothing, since a day or so ago, I was going to order anyway. :P

It sounds like Silk Dust is good stuff, an excellent primer, keeping the minerals in place and set, controls oil....

Am I right?

Well, I don't have the silk dust yet, but am ordering it...or did I order it...or is that the one in my wish list kit...I'm so confused. :lol: I have the finishing powder (I keep calling it dust, it's powder though).

Wow, great information. I tried the Tinted Silk Dust under my foundation today and it really does look great! Maybe it will work under my eye shadow and help it last longer?

Seems to really work on the eye. My left eye STILL has NO creasing (9 hours later)...the right eye is all splotchy, lol. I have very oily eyelids, so creasing is a problem with almost everything and every line of products, so for the left eye to not be creased is something. :P

So i just wanted to let everyone know I GOT MY STUFF TODAY!!!! it was there waiting for me when i got home on lunch!! so I will let you all know what i will be wearing tomorrow, when i get to work!!! now if only the other w-2 would come in...lol

Yay!!! Can't wait to hear all about it.

YAY Jodi, glad you got your order!

Well, I don't have the silk dust yet, but am ordering it...or did I order it...or is that the one in my wish list kit...I'm so confused. :lol: I have the finishing powder (I keep calling it dust, it's powder though).

:huh::huh:

Ok, now I am confused.

It is Finishing Dust, I have this also (the equivalent to BE Mineral Veil).

I thought you were talking about the Silk Dust, but I guess that was Mango and Jess??

Unless there is a Finishing Powder in a face color/blush or color corrector/concealer??

:huh:

Well, the way I figure it, with my excellent math skills :D , 5% doesn't even make a difference since they upped the total after discount to $35, UNLESS you were planning to get way over $35 to begin with? So you are actually buying more and paying more :lol: ....right??

Oh well, it's totally affordable anyhow, I mean $4-$8 containers that will last forever and ever.

I might have just talked myself into ordering :lol:

Well, it's in the Finishing Powder section, but it doesn't say it's a dust...I have Natural Reflection Fair...don't really know if it's a dust or a powder, lol, but since some of the others say "dust" I figured this was a "powder", lol. :lol:

Now, I'm confused too. :lol:

:lol: (Pssst, yeah, I was planning to get way over $35 anyway :P )

Okay now I'm confused too :lol::blink::wacko::lol:

There is a finishing powder called "Finishing Dust." That's the one with corn starch.

Then there's finishing powder called "Natural Reflections"

There's also finishing powder called "Silk Dust."

Sooo...I think Donna is using Natural Reflections finishing powder????

:lol:

Yes, it sounds like it.

And I am using Finishing Dust, from the Finishing Powder section.

Thus the confusion, I thought she was talking about Finishing Dust, she thought I understood she was referring to her Natural Reflections Finishing Powder. I just assumed anything called Finishing was the Finishing Dust

It's all very confusing, French, oui, de ja vous

My bad!

I went ahead and ordered. I want it here before I go out of town next week.

I was just happy to see a special at this point. It included things that I would not have ordered, so who knows I might like them. I didn't seem to do so great at picking things out myself, lol.

Well I ordered but not enough to get the extra gift items. I am running low on the foundation I am now using as all I had was a sample.

So I got a mini kit and a sample kit:

Sun-kissed fair foundation, two small and one sample

two other lighter foundation samples

Splendid and Morning Cup blushes

Cherry Fizz lip gloss

Good China and Cool Breeze eye color

I am still playing with the colors, so look forward to getting all of these.

oooo fun order. I love Morning Cup. I wear it as blush and eyeshadow. It's a great brown for cooler skin (no orange in that one) :D

Good, I was hoping there was no orange! I've been using Wild Flowers for eyelid, I am thinking this might be similar but with more shimmer.

I am hoping the original glo will help. Today I forgot my extra moisturizer before putting on my makeup and I had the fine lines again even with the same color foundation. <_<

Okay, today's new product: Eyebrow color. I ordered two, a darker and a lighter brown...I'm wearing the lighter brown. I originally ordered it thinking it would be a good eyeliner or smokey brown shadow, but I'm wearing it as it's intended too, lol. So I've got it on my eyebrows and on as a smokey liner. Looks great both ways. The color is Medium Brown I think. I can't imagine what the darker one will look like...the medium is pretty dark. :P I think I might also now order a lighter one as well.

Also have finishing POWDER :lol: all over my face today as a primer and also as a finishing powder. :P

Good morning ladies! I got my sample kit yesterday. I ordered the multi-tasking concealer, Multi-tasking Neutral in Original Glow, and fair and fair medium in Intensive for foundation, and corner office for blush. I LOVE corner office....I'm wearing it on my eyes, too. The concealer seems too light, I look like I have reverse racoon eyes. I like the foundation colors; I used Multi-Tasking last night, and it was nice, and today I mixed the other two, and they look good. I don't think I'm applying it right though, it just doesn't seem to cover well enough...perhaps it's my brush? It's a crappy one from Target, very floofy. It also seems to really show all the fine lines around my eyes....and I moisturized twice before applying this morning. What can help that? Silk dust underneath, I think I read? I'm about to order an I Can't Believe It kit and a few lips glosses. I think I'm getting:

Lips:

Cherry Fizz

Spring Pink

Eyes:

Starry Eyed

In The Garden

Cherry Fizz

Smokey Eyeliner

Face:

Nick Nack

Best Friends

Text Message

Accessories:

oval concealer brush

new flat top brush

Foundation:

multi-tasking neutral and fair in original glow

Concealer:

Sunlight Color Corrector

Finishing Powder:

Finishing Dust

What do you guys think of those products, if you have them?

Thanks!!!

Shannon, FUN order!

So here's what I think of the products

Lips:

Cherry Fizz -- Like this one the best of all the glosses

Spring Pink -- too light for my complexion apparently, I may try it one more time with some clear gloss over it to see if that helps

Eyes:

Starry Eyed -- LOVE this!

In The Garden -- Pretty good, like it too

Cherry Fizz -- VERY nice and also looks good as a blush

Smokey Eyeliner --LOVE this too!

Face:

Nick Nack -- almost tied for my most favorite color blush...it's just slightly below Pink Ribbon, but only slightly

Best Friends -- haven't tried yet

Text Message -- haven't tried yet

Accessories:

oval concealer brush -- Haven't tried this yet

new flat top brush -- Not tried yet

Foundation:

multi-tasking neutral and fair in original glow -- I've got it in Matte and like it very much.

Concealer:

Sunlight Color Corrector -- LOVE this...my new best friend, lol. Really takes the dark circles away for me.

Finishing Powder:

Finishing Dust -- haven't tried this yet, but I have a finishing powder and like it very much

Shannon, I've been dealing with the fine lines issue too.

Try very small light coatings, then repeat them, buffing in well.

Try a lighter foundation. I first liked multi tasking, but am now using sun kissed fair and have less lines if I moisturize well. I am also using semi matte but am going to try original glo which I hope will help.

I also added a moisturizer, so I use two.

Be sure your skin care is including enough exfoliation btw.

I am still trying to find the trick...but did get a couple days without lines recently.

For the folks dealing with fine lines....try applying your foundation wet. You only need a tiny bit of water and a tiny bit of minerals...and it's like a magic eraser! I love it! :D

Whoever suggested using the new car smell as an eyeshadow - fabulous!! Works perfect for casual friday. I also brushed a bit into my eyebrows to complete the 'autumn' color scheme.

hum...that is a good idea.

So you all would not believe (okay maybe you would by now) how many colors I had to use to achieve my no make-up casual Friday look today :rolleyes::lol:

Multi-tasking intensive foundation applied wet

DVR blush (this one instantly fades and turns brown/orangish on me :huh: )

Daydream blush

Light Pink blush

Intensive Fair concealer

Sunlight concealer

Pots and Pans eyeshadow

Bedtime story eyeshadow

Finishing Dust

Hey it's only three blushes and two eye shadows :rolleyes::rolleyes:

A stiffer brush works best for foundation/face color with mineral make-up, like a kabuki brush or a flat top brush.

For basic coverage start with just a little bit of minerals and work it into your brush, tap off the excess and then buff all over your face, in small circles. The buffing makes all the difference. Repeat with another layer if needed.

Then there all kinds of other tricks and tips for your desired coverage beyond that, for example applying the foundation wet, applying a finishing powder under the foundation, or a concealer, etc. You can play with that to figure out what you like best.

Your flooffy brush might be ideal for blush :)

Sherry's point about exfoliating is a great tip. I've gotten back into doing this, and it makes a difference.

I agree Patti.

Thanks Sherry for bringing that up!

I have an Apricot Facial Scrub that I use and it really helps slough off those dead skin cells.

The result is a smoother makeup application :)
