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

Recommended Posts

I fiiiiinally tried Text Message - LOVE IT! It looked really dark in the jar, but is beautiful on and stays looking nice all day.

Text message was waaaay too dark for me as a blush, but it works great as an eyeshadow. It really makes my green eyes pop.

My new favorite look for eyes is rare silk as a base, smoky pink on the lid and in the garden as a liner. In the garden is a purple/brown with just a touch of green and I love the look of it. I love all the browns as liners. It's funny because I never wore brown eyeliner before.

I just did our taxes over the weekend and we are getting back almost twice as much as I thought we would. Woo hoo - more makeup! I just know the next special is going to be great. I am really tempted to order another eyeshadow sampler. But I have already ordered 2. I now have over 20 eyeshadow colors with all the free samples and samplers I have gotten. This is more colors than I have ever owned in all my 37 years on the planet combined. But I still want to keep going! :lol:

I also wore gingerbread man on Friday. The more I wear that color the more I like it.

I say order now and order later, if you can afford it. :D

:D

Quite possibly could be our best cult motto! :lol:

Agreed!

Love your new avatar Donna, your make-up and hair look great! Gorgeous in RED :D

Oh- and I'm loving lavender oil on my face. It is GREAT! Relaxing too. :)

Hey Mango, what happened to your thoughts on the colors in my cart? :lol:

I LOVE lavender oil too. I buy the pure oil from the health food store and use a few drops in a handful of this natural salve I slather on my face at night. Then I wash and exfoliate in the AM and the result is smooth skin.

I think i need to go back to the health food store and get lavender oil, you all are selling me on this. My skin is getting so much better since using this makeup(and the candida diet), so im not sure which one is doing the job but hey it makes me think i have to keep using this make up lol.

Im going to order soon, i am still trying to figure out what big sample of foundation i want since i use more that i am using it wet now, but it works so much better. Today i got an compliment at the kids school, they are like you really look nice today, sicne i had my hair and makeup done, most days im running in there with my hair still wet and unbrushed lmao.

Colleen, this look sounds scrumptious!

I have In the Garden in my cart, can't wait to get it!

Woo hoo on the moola coming in for you, MORE make-up for you :lol:

I'm also excited for the new website reveal, I have this feeling there are going to be lots of fun new colors and accessories. :D:D

It might take a while, they seem to be very slow in introducing things they say are 'coming soon'.

I know there is a mascara in the works and they have to get more brushes in...they don't even have an eye liner brush up at all now. That's almost tragic!

I say order now and order later, if you can afford it. :D

Sigh, okay! I think I'll order it today.

Oh- and I'm loving lavender oil on my face. It is GREAT! Relaxing too. :)

Good! I have another fun concotion for you to try! It's a mask...take an egg white and some lemon juice and beat it with a hand blender until it forms peaks. Then, apply to your face, after you've "steamed" it, and let it dry completely, then take it off with cool water. It works great! I did it last night and my skin looks really good today! :D

Hey Mango, what happened to your thoughts on the colors in my cart?

Ohhhhhhh yeah! LOL

Are these your colors?

Soft Bronzer - I think you will like this. They are not kidding when they say "soft" though. It just adds a really subtle boost of color, without being too noticeable.

Fresh Air - this one has been on my mental wish list for some time lol.

Corner Office - I like this one. It needs to be applied really lightly. It does have some orange in it, but I think it's an orange that works for cool skin tones. I sometimes add a swipe of Soft Touch (pink) over it. This one stays on all day for me too, and it looks very natural.

Email Me - hmmm, I dunno, but I want it LOL

Snooze Bar - this one is pretty popular on MUA:

Everyday Bronzer - another one I'll have to get one of these days. LOL

:o Gosh, now I have to consider adding Fresh Air to my cart :lol:

I guess that wasn't very helpful, was it? LOL

omgosh...you read my mind. LOL I was just about to ask if anyone's ever tried an egg white mask!

I am so definitely going to try that later. :D

LOL! It worked for me! Some people say they do it everyday to prevent new acne, but then some say don't do it everyday because your skin gets used to it, and it doesn't work as well.

I usually do masks 2x week.

Oh good...I ordered the silk powder :D. I also ordered the pink finishing powder, which seems kind of strange, but I was persuaded by their description of it :lol:

Do you or does anyone else know which line of makeup products you should not use???? I was just diagnose three weeks ago and I was thinking about the makeup I use and was wondering if I should swiitch. (I use Lancome)

Thanks for the make-up info! ;)

Here is some info. on Lancome that might help you:

If you're worried about it, you could always order a free sample kit from EM. As you can see, it's quite popular. :lol: All EM make-up is gluten-free (as far as I know).

Ok, I guess when EM says shipped, it does not mean it is out the door and on the way. Shipped must mean "we printed the label". Anyway, my order showed "shipped" for 2 days, but the tracking number wouldn't work. Finally, Saturday it showed that it wasn't picked up until 6:00pm Friday evening.

I did the 2 day DHL, but now it says it won't be here until Tues. 5:00pm. I have to leave town Tuesday afternoon, so I probably won't get it in time. Oh well, live and learn.

This is what I ordered:

Okay so here is my dilemma. Perhaps you all can provide some insight and advice :lol:

My last chance to order EM for a while will be the last week of this month. After that, I will have a bit of a....more expensive shipping situation <_<

So....do I go ahead and order now?

Or...

Do I wait and hope they have a new (and perhaps more exciting) special, or even a new website, at some point between Feb. 15th and Feb. twenty-something....

If I wait, they might end up having no special during that period of time, soo....hmmmm.....

decisions, decisions....

-_- <-------- (deep in thought emoticon guy)

:P <----- (just to show you I'm not really taking this too seriously lol)

Oh, yes. The motto. Okay.

I guess since it's currently "now," that means I should go order. I will worry about the later part some other time.

WAIT, does this mean Mango is going undercover again as an international spy, traveling to far corners of the globe in order to bring us back top intellegence from the competition, perhaps competing mineral make-up companies this time around??

Hmmm, no advice to give here, I am struggling with the same questions.

I have a feeling that new colors will be coming out, if you pick apart the words of the new special (like a good cult member would do) they say that the freebies are sample sizes of some of their new products that will be released later this month.

:o

That sounds very promising!!!!!

But then again, there are no guarantees, and look at this recent special, 5% on $35, it actually got worse :lol:

:lol:

I also suspect as much.

I'm not sure if I like all the premature announcements about potential new products.....maybe it's all just part of their strategy to keep us curious and excited about things...but <_<

LOL. I guess it works though. They do seem to be able to keep us on the edge of our seats. :lol:

I'm finding that dusting my eyelids with finishing powder is working to cut down the oil there...working really well for me.

Quite possibly could be our best cult motto! :lol:

Great! Glad that's working for you.

I quite like the motto. :lol::lol::lol:

dlp - thank you, I am keeping my fingers crossed. I may have to delay my departure, lol.

juliem - thank you, I hope my order looks as fabulous on me as it does on paper, lol.

Thank you, Bellyfat, I will let you know how I like the brush. I decided I needed all the help I could get, so I am trying to get all the right brushes.I hope it looks as fabulous on me as it does on paper, lol.

Mango - That is a tough decision. I decided to order now and order later, but I can understand the decision is worse if you know you would have to wait longer to order later. Hmmm, this is starting to sound like addictive behavior. We may have to start a new support thread lol.

BTW - how do you make those multiple quotes in your replies?

At the bottom of each peson's quote there is a little button that says quote. Click each one you want to respond to, and then click add reply at the bottom of the page. When the reply box comes up, it will be populated with all the posts you wanted to respond to. Just snip out the part you don't want and leave the rest.

Guess what, cult members? I got a raise today! Not a huge one (unexpected, though), but enough to give me a reason to celebrate. I wonder what i should buy to commemorate the occasion....... :lol:
