Well, it won't be ME that tells you want the new lip gloss is like. I can't think of enough things to buy to get the stupid special! Harrumphf! :lol:

Donna! What has happened to you????? Have you finally purchased everything??? :lol: :lol:

I guess you'll have to wait for the new website to come out. Hopefully they will have lots of new fabulous things. :D

Wow, Donna! B)

Mango, well, your new room mate just needs to try the make up once!

WW, I hope you figure it out soon. Bummer!!

I'm not going to make the minimum to get the free stuff. I'm just going to get another brush and the free kit this time. Now, to go change the colors around again, lol.

Hi Everyone!

Under the news section of the EM site--she mentions they are changing up the lip glosses, and still working on the website (due to adding 12 new features!) :D She also mentions still working on the eye kabuki brush!!

Can't wait!!

That is good news Amy, thanks for lettting us know. I think the new website will be great with all the hard work they seem to be putting into it!

Yikes! Today I got a giant hive on my eyelid shortly after applying my makeup. Now to figure out what caused that. I immediately washed everything off and it is settling down, but my eyelid blew up like a baloon. It started right at the lashline. Both eyes itched, but only one got the hive.

Wow! I hope it isn't the makeup. Were you using a new brush to put it on? One of the brushes I ordered came in with a really strong glue smell on it and I had to wash it off really well before using it. I wonder if it was something the brush you were using. Hope your doing better now.

Mango, LOL! Your room mate has a lot to learn. Maybe you can convert her into an EM user. That would have to move you up to Superior Cult Leader The Great!

Am I the only one that likes the new special??? I think the peach lip color and face color (like silk dust, right?) will be very nice. The 5% stinks, but I'm ordering this time. Just need to figure out if I want to wait until the Baby Kabuki comes in on the 20th or order now and get the Angled Blush Brush! :unsure:

WW340:

Have you cleaned your brushes lately? Or have you used anything with a purple base in a shadow the past few days? Purple shaded eye colors sometimes can irritate sensite eye lids.

Lets hope its the new moisturizer though!!

Not crazy about the new special--i think I may hold off with my order for the next special.

Good luck

AMY

Thank you all for your concern and suggestions.

I went ahead and washed my brushes, even though they are from EM and I have only had them a few weeks. I went back to my previous moisturizer. Fortunately, I am not working this week, so I was able to put things on one at a time and wait 15 minutes between each application. I did not use the same eye make up colors today. I did use EM, just different colors. I had no hives or itching, so I will try the eye colors I used yesterday, but one at a time. I really do hope it is the moisturizer.

One of the brushes I used on my eyes yesterday was new, and not EM. I will hold off on using it for now. It was a really nice size for applying all over eye coverage with concealer and base. I am hoping the new eye kabuki will be like this brush.

Ha, well I sort of want the new special, but I can't think of enough to buy right now in order to get it, lol. Who knew I would run out of things to buy?! I know, shockes, amazes and astonishes even me. :lol:

This is shocking. Are you sure you don't need some duplicates?

I think I will place an order, but not big enough for the special right now. Not that the current special would keep me from it, but I can't order full sizes until I get everything figured out.

I think I will order the mini kit in all the foundations I am mixing together so that I have more to work with. They are going to go broke sending me samples if I can't get this figured out pretty soon lol.

Okay girls...don't be afraid to mix those wild colors. :lol:

I went ahead and tapped out just a few grains of the Mojave Camping blush with quite a bit more Car Pool. It was kind of a smokey lilac...very nice. I put that on the crease and corner of my eyes. Looks VERY nice if I do say so myself. :lol: I got to thinking that it might also make a nice blush, but had already put on blush for today. I didn't measure exactly on this mix, but there literally was only one small spot of the mojave (as if it had come out of only one of the little holes), lol.

I finished that up with some mystic night eyeliner...looks very good.

I'm going through all my eye colors again...now that I have the new brushes, it seems to put the color on differently, so I'm revisiting everything to make sure I still like what I liked and still don't like what I don't like. So far, I still love Ginger Peach, Ping Pong, Gingerbread Man and Autumn Afternoon, but just so so on Spin Cycle and Good China...those two were my favorites before.

Donna! What has happened to you????? Have you finally purchased everything??? :lol: :lol:

I guess I HAVE purchased everything, lol. I don't want to wait for the next special...I want to be a good cult member and buy now and buy later, lol. Currently I have a free sample kit in my cart plus two of the empty jars. I tried putting in a personal mini kit yesterday, but could only find three things I might want to try. Sad, but true :lol: Must go look when I'm done here to see if the new website is up yet.

I actually want the special too. I want to try the lip gloss but don't want to buy it. :lol: I haven't loved their lip glosses yet, and this one looks promissing. If I could just think of something else to buy, lol.

I ran out of makeup ideas to buy to that is why i got brushes and the lavender wear then i had to add the big size of sunlight to make it over 35 bucks to get the special lol. Next special will be hard cause i will have all the eyeshadows that i want so i hope they add some new eyeshadows soon lol.

I should have my order by tuesday so i will report on the new stuff as soon as i get it, i cant wait to wear the lip stick lol.

What are jojodots, lol? Is that the scrub?

Hey all, I also bought some Evian mist. I tested after I got home (after all day with makeup on) and I think I'll like it...very fine mist. My plan is to use it after my foundation and before all the other stuff.

Where did you buy it? I've been wanting to buy some water mist, but don't know where to look.

This combination sounds great! Car pool is the blue I don't have. Argh! I may try it with baby sitter, the blue I DO have. :lol:

When is the new site supposed to be launched? I am getting really impatient. :lol:;)

I am impatient too! I keep thinking it can't be too much longer. I found the latest special pretty underwhelming, so I won't be ordering anything more until the new site comes out. They have hinted around adding more things with the launch of the new website, so that's another reason for me to wait. I'll just have to use what I have (not a bad thing at all) and live vicariously through the rest of you culties with more cash than me. ;)

Very cool! I'm going to have to look for that. I have been getting my hands wet and then drying them off 99%. Then I pat my face all over. That seems to even things out quite a lot. But a mister that doesn't throw big blobs of water on my face would work even better. The spray bottle I have now puts out too much water.

Well, I liked the misting effect. The directions on the can say to spray, then wait a moment, then pat....which are pretty much the instructions for the True Minerals I tried between BE and EM. I liked the misting effect, but their mist tasted awful (and their minerals broke me out)...and it always ended up in my mouth somehow. Anyway, you sprayed that then patted with a cosmetic sponge. So I pulled out the sponges that came with the True Minerals and patted the Evian with it. Very nice indeed. Felt good too. I imagine this will REALLY feel good in the summer! :P Face still looked good 4 hours later.

Nothing too new today...I decided I like Golden Light better than Olive Light for me...matches my neck better and doesn't seem to change colors. The Olive seems to get just a hair darker as the day goes no...not in a bad way, but just darker...I don't need darker, lol.

Revisited Rare Silk. Didn't love it as much as when I first tried it, but still not a bad color.

New color today was Baby Sitter. I was afraid, very afraid, but boldly stuck my brush in the tiniest of piles of the color. It went into the crease and on the corner of my eye. I was not convinced. :blink: However, after putting on mascara and some mystic night as a liner, it looked pretty good. Not a color I'll wear often, but still nice. When I got home 4 hours later, it actually had all settled in together and looked very nice...it didn't scream BLUE, lol.

Today i mixed multi tasking with a medium tan, and it is the perfect color for me today, at least so far it is lol. I had one problem tho i put too much olive oil on my face so i am kinda oily but not too bad, the silk tinted dust helped absorb alot of it, tg lol I would have redone my whole face if i would of had time but kids had to be taken to school, and i have to go help with my daughters first birthday party at school today, im so sad about it, were did my babies go lol. Parents are going to love me, cupcakes and ice cream at 10 am lol and i also made goodie bags with candy and toys. They only go to school til 11:30 in case anyone wondered why cupcakes at 10 am lol.

I cant wait for my order to get here, it left denver on saturday, so if im lucky i might get it today but since it snowed up there, im thinking i wont get it til tommorow.

I got my makeup, im so excited.

I just put on the pink lemonade lip gloss and it is very pretty, it is almost the color of the smokey pink eye shadow. It isnt very dark but very shimmery and pretty, i love it.

I cant wait to experiment with the new eye shadows tommorow, like the hot chocolate, in the garden and a few other..

The buds look like q-tips but much better, i cant wait to use it for liner tommorow, ive been making it to thick lately and i think these will be so much better.

I cant wait to use my new brush either, its really soft compared to my last one.

I think i might just take off all my makeup and try everything this afternoon.

Ok i need ideas.

Tommorow we go to court and i want a very nice looking face tommorow, i dont want to be hoochie looking but want to look great. What combo should i go for in my makeup.

I know mojave is probably out for blush.

I now have every eye color but the blues so any ideas i can do lol

And i think i will do wffle cone or email me for blush since they are subtle. Im also thinking of wearing the pink lemonade lip stick and maybe adding an touch of the smokey pink eye shadow to make it a little darker but not over powering.

Im also thinkiing if i need to buy new clothes for the occassion to look very well put together.

Hum, I think Mojave and New Car Smell were the only two that really screamed color to me, lol. I think you'd do well with any of the others, almost all of them are pretty subtle on me. You could always use Waffle Cone as an eyecolor too.

That is true none of the colors are that bold as long as i stay away from the mojave lol.

Guess what i found today.

My pink pajamas, i was so happy.

I think the peach all over color from the special is going to make an pretty blush and eye shadow, it is very pretty.

Im kinda depressed now tho, my train case is completly full, i dont have room for anything so my hubby said i cant order more, or i need to order an new train kit, but i dont want to part with this train kit. I guess i just need to find my foundation match then i can empty some of my case lol.

Paula,

I can so relate to the foundation thing. I still haven't figured out which foundation I like. Also, with my lovely health, some days I'm really pale and some days I have nice color, so I need like 5 different colors. :rolleyes: What a bummer! :lol:

I actually have a huge train case from Sephora, but it's in New Zealand, so I'm trying to get my dad/stepmom to bring it back with them when they come back here to visit. I'm excited! :D

Paula, hope all goes well at court. You must report back as to exactly what makeup you wore!! :lol: Oh yeah, and on the results of the court appearance!

Well, looks like three blushes disappeared! Noticing that the line ending was different on the last row of colors, I had to pull out my trusty spreadsheet to compare colors. I couldn't find Anytime, Chit Chat or Splendid! I hadn't ordered Chit Chat or Splendid yet...can't say I'll miss Anytime...it's a good eye color though, but what I have will last forever, lol.

Today I'm revisiting Hot Chocolate and Well Being. Not in love with either color today, lol. When I find the handful of colors I truly love I'm ordering a large container. :P
