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

Recommended Posts

Hello All!! I am so excited to have found this forum. I am new to this gluten free world (since Nov.07). I don't mind not eating some of my old favorite foods but not knowing which make up I can where is killing me. So, I hope that hope you are ok with a newbie joining your thread :D

I have attempted to read as much of this thread as possible but after 100 pages I got a little overwhelmed. Can anyone tell me which make up brand you are all so excited about? Also, has anyone here tried after glow cosmetics? I am just desperate to find a good gluten-free lipstick.

Thanks so much for all of your help. So glad to be here!!!

Hi, welcome to our crazy thread! The make-up we LOVE is called Everyday Minerals. It can be ordered from www.everydayminerals.com A good place to start is in the "kits" section. Click on the free sample kit and choose three foundation shades that you think might work for you, as well as a blush and a concealer. You just need to pay a few dollars for shipping.

This make-up is all gluten-free, all natural (my acne-prone skin has improved tremendously since I started wearing it) and it's so affordable. They have such amazing customer service and a really great selection of shades. Plus, it's so fun to order and even more fun to come here and chat about it.

I promise I am not affiliated with the company. :lol:

EM has great lip glosses, or you can use any of the blushes or eye colors on your lips (just combine it with chapstick). Burts Bees makes good gluten-free lipsticks too if you're looking for something quick from the drugstore.

If you're still reading the 100 pages, I hope we haven't scared you away yet. LOL

I just wanted to let you guys know...I was worried that with the renovation of EM's website and new products that all of their products wouldn't be gluten-free. I emailed them and they wrote:

Hello Kassandra:

Thanks for contacting us. One of my best friends has Celiac's Disease, and I am so happy that she is able to wear EM with no worries. I know it can be time consuming to always have to check with companies before trying products.

If we did ever have products that did contain gluten, we would certainly make that information easily available and identifiable.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Take care

Ok im scaring my husband lol.

:lol: Hey, great way to get hubbies to encourage makeup purchases...just threaten to buy furniture instead. :P

Thanks so much for all of your help. So glad to be here!!!

Hey DOlly, welcome!!!! See you've already received the answers to your questions, so just wanted to say hello.

Yes...I bought the little mini train case today, but the full sized one I had my eye on there seemed to be really hard to open. The lady was just struggling to open it, so I decided to wait. I'm going to order one off the internet that is like this one, but a little larger and has a couple more fold out trays. That ought to hold me for a while. The case I have now (which I took pictures of and will load somewhere online tomorrow, lol) will soon be too small! :lol:

Did you guys see that they extended the current special? It now says it applies to orders placed before 2/18. Does this mean there is a new website coming on 2/19??? This is way more fun than speculating about the outcome of the next presidential election. :lol:

I FINALLY broke down and bought an organizer. Target was clearing out a bunch of caboodles organizers, and I picked the pinkest and most sparkly in the bunch. I feel like I am 9 years old when I look at it, but it will make it a lot easier to find things. And the price was just too good to pass up.

AND

Today is the first day since mid-december I have not worn any makeup. I feel naked.

Hi ladies, I still haven't played with my new eye shadows. I'm going to need an organizer too, I think, even though I am much further behind some of you.

I will admit that I have been wearing make up every day for awhile now, which is very different for me. No gym membership so I can't achieve that status.

I will have to page back to all of the organizer talk. :D

Paula, I'm :D at the furniture buying if the make up didn't show up!! The two times I have ordered, I've done the USPS and been very happy, except that it was over a holiday last month.

Well last night i used the pressed olive and the snowflake and i hated them and i had no time to take them off before the banguet so i looked like an ding dong lol. I did use the nick nack blush and loved it. I also loved the sparkle bronzer. I need to play around with more of the stuff today when i have time and only have to go grocery shop so its ok if i look like an ding dong today lol.

I need an new ad tho cause i need to do an big order lol.

Yesterday i was watchng be commercials and i thoght baout ordering the 60 buck special they had just to get 4 brushes, cause i need brushes, but i wasnt sure if i would kick off the cult or not lmao.

My living room set look sso nice in my house tho so im glad i did buy it. we havent had an coffee table for years cause we always had a toddler learning to walk and i was afraid of them, so its nice to have one now after all these years. Now im thinking about an big screen tv tho, but dang those are expenisve when a person has to support her gluten free makeup habit lol

Cheri - Target has some good organizers...I also bought too Caboodles organizers there (very cute bright colors) and then found a craft organizer on clearance which is what I'm using now. I'm outgrowing them faster than I can blink, lol. I think somewhere in the first 20 pages or so are some links to different kinds.

I forgot to mention that I bought some pure jojoba oil yesterday. I'm really afraid to put it on my face, but today used it on my legs, lol. After I get a feel for how it works on my legs, I MAY be brave enough to put it on my face tonight. :)

And this is the one I want:

http://www.yazmo.com/index.asp?PageAction=...&ProdID=547

Although I am going to go to the mall tomorrow and look at Sephora...they also have some train cases I like, but I think I like the one in the link best, so if Sephora doesn't have one like this I'm order this one.

Omg shipping for fast delievery is expensive, so i did the free shipping. I cant wait to get it, hopefully i will before my next order of em makeup lol

OK, ladies. I think I need an eyeshadow intervention. My new Caboodles organizer has given me a conundrum. Now that I have all my eyeshadows organized, I figured out I have more than I thought I did. I actually have 28 colors, not 20. :blink: Add to that a few blush colors that I really like better as eye colors. So I really have 30 or so. Can I really justify buying another 10 color sampler? There are so many other colors I want to try! ARGH!!!

Does anyone have both Thank you and Morocco? It looks like they might be the close to same color but Morocco is Matte and Thank You is a shimmer. I have Thank You and am considering Morocco. Thoughts?

Can someone with green eyes and fair skin pull off Oasis? I like the description of it, but it looks so yellow on the website.

Oooh, can't wait to hear how everything fits in. This was one that someone posted over at the EM boards.

Silly, silly girl! What kind of a question is THAT for a cult thread?! Of COURSE you can justify it! :lol:

Don't worry. There are always other ways for you to achieve a higher status. Do you have access to a pool or a sauna? ;):lol:

Yeah, what she said!

Sorry about the triple post thing. I got kind of ahead of myself.

Okay so my latest sample kit made it to San Diego (usps seriously rocks - it took two days). I probably won't get it until Tuesday with the holiday and what not.

I'm getting buff fairly light neutral, buff fair neutral and beige sunkissed fair. Does anyone else (who also happens to have tried muli-tasking) own these shades? LOL

I thought multi-task was my perfect match, but I "accidentally" caught a glimpse of myself in my car mirror - ya know the mirror that shows everything way too well (and I don't even know how that happened, as I would never purposely check out my make-up while driving :ph34r::lol: ). Anywho, I'm starting to think I'm not as cool toned as I previously thought. Multi-task looks a bit too pink maybe?

Well, I know that was a fascinating tid bit for you all. I'll let ya know how the samples are when they get here :D

:lol: awesome. I'm gonna go mix together some foundation samples that don't work for me with the hopes of coming up with a good shade. Then I'm going running. :ph34r: (minerals = sunscreen and it's sunny today!) :lol:

Yup. I have green/blue/brown/hazel eyes (depends what color they want to be that day) and use multi-tasking neutral and I love this one! Last night I went to a contradance and just only that over my whole lid (wanted to look natural... :P) and I loved how it looked. :)

So... today I'm wearing the Once Again blush (I think that's the name) and I love this. It's like a lighter shade of the Plumb Dust. Also using Photo Album again as an eyeshadow... and my normal Spin Cycle as a highlighter. :wub:

I really need to invest in a makeup organizer, though. :lol:

:lol: You really do keep your make-up on your toilet tank. LOL I like those drawers though. :D

Just the lip glosses, lol. :lol: All three drawers are now full, so the next lip gloss will push me into a different storage system. :P

Anywho, I'm starting to think I'm not as cool toned as I previously thought. Multi-task looks a bit too pink maybe?

Yeah, this is what happened to me. I read that book which said I SHOULD be warm, but I didn't believe it...went ahead and ordered some of the warmer foundations and those are the ones that look the best.
