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

Recommended Posts

I would die if I had to figure out which foundation to wear with which blush.

and omg this is OT but there's a new Mango at celiac.com. Looks like the person joined today. This could get confusing. :wacko::huh::rolleyes::lol:

Well you are Mango to the 4th power, lol.

Yeah, it's not so much to figure out what foundation to wear with the blush, but rather when I can wear some of those not much used blushes, lol. Some of them (like Soft Touch) are on the borderline of being too light, but if I'm wearing the right foundation I LOVE how it looks, so since I can't remember from one time to the next what I was wearing when it looked good...SPREADSHEET. :lol:

I feel like a pin cushion. I've been undergoing so many tests! (Bloodtests, thyroid panels, vitamin levels) and still need an x-ray of my eyes and an MRI of my head. I have been spending more time researching my problems and less time having fun with my online makup friends. This is just not right!

I'll catch up reading and post later. I only went back a few posts so I need to find out what's going on in the EM world!

Hi Joni, sorry about all you are going through with your health. I hope you find some answers :)

Come back to your on-line make-up friends when you can :lol:

Okay folks...I see a new spreadsheet in my future. :lol:

I just can't remember what looks good with what. I remember liking Waffle Cone well enough, but wasn't WOWed by it the last time I tried it. I decided to try it today again with my Sunkissed Fair (but in Semi-Matte), and the waffle cone looked GREAT. So apparently the foundation color (or even formulation possibly) may make a difference in the way blush looks.

So, my project for today is to create a spreadsheet. :lol:

That' sounds like quite a project Donna.

and omg this is OT but there's a new Mango at celiac.com. Looks like the person joined today. This could get confusing. :wacko::huh::rolleyes::lol:

Oh no! That gets confusing.

Nothing EM related really to report. I still haven't ordered what's in my cart, I'm not 100% decided on my blush or eye color selections. Most of them, yes, but there are one or two in each category I am questioning.

What a bummer about the tests :( Hopefully you are discovering some things though.

I'm not caught up with the EM world either. Must spend more time thinking about make-up :lol: :lol:

Thanks Mangotothe4thpower! I think they are, they found a problem with my vitamin/thyroid panels and I'll find out Monday!

LOL! I had more fun when all I was thinking about was EM, then reality took over!

Thank you for that info joni, im going to have to order an sample kit soon and try apple lol

paula

Your Welcome! Hope you like it!

Well you are Mango to the 4th power, lol.

Thank you, Julie. Did you end up ordering when they had the last special (the peach lipstick and peach blush/finishing powder)?

I think I figured out why they did not send my specials with my last order. There appears to be a problem with their special link and paypal. Paypal charged me the right amount including the discount, but it did not reflect with EM.

Other people are having problems with paypal over charging them. So, if you use paypal to pay for your orders, you need to check the amount charged to your account.

I have emailed them about this. I hope they will make good on my specials.

I know Joni, that reality just comes out of nowhere!

I didn't end up ordering, I haven't ordered in a while actually. The specials haven't been that appealing to me so far, and I'm really holding out for NEW COLORS. Hint Hint EM!

Well I am glad you figured out what the problem was.

I hope they will honor the specials for you.

pssst, everyone! It's our cult leader Mango's birthday today. There's a thread in the gab section

I totally agree. Of course this is coming from someone with foundation issues anyway lol.

I like the apple, plum dust and chit chat all the best. I frequently tone them down with a little soft touch though.

Thanks Mangotothe4thpower! I think they are, they found a problem with my vitamin/thyroid panels and I'll find out Monday!

Hopefully it will be something easy to treat like low B12. Let us know what you find out.

I got an email answer back and they said that even though the special was still up when I ordered, it was expired, so I don't get the items. I don't get it exactly, at least I did get the 5% off. Still bummed out though.

Happy Birthday, Mango.

Even when it was reflected in your cart? I thought that is what you mentioned earlier that it showed up in your cart, but maybe I got that confused.

Major bummer, WW340, sorry they didn't honor the specials :(

It sure does!

New colors would be a welcome addition. I'm kind of curious what the NEWS will be this month.

Thank you, I hope so too!

That doesn't seem right WW340. It's misleading when they leave the special up, even though it's dated. I wish they would be better about that aspect of their website.

It showed in my cart when I ordered it, and I was charged the discounted price, but I never got the special. Now my order shows the regular price, but that is not the price I was charged on paypal. Weird.

That doesn't seem right WW340. It's misleading when they leave the special up, even though it's dated. I wish they would be better about that aspect of their website.

I agree with that. I think it is very misleading, especially since they so frequently just extend the current special.

I think you are very wise in doing that. I think I will do the same.

I have much more to be bummed out about now. I have been seeing doctors and nerve specialists for the past week and had an MRI to figure out what is causing this terrible pain in my left shoulder and numbness under my arm and across my breast. They thought it was a nerve impingement. But last night I developed a rash all along the affected area. My doctor confirmed it this morning. I have shingles. I am miserable.

WW340, sorry about the shingles and all the pain you are experiencing. I hope you are not uncomfortable for too long.

I don't know if any of you are keeping up with the "news" posts, but I just noticed 2 new ones. I have been checking fequently to see if there was any new news and I sware that the January post was the latest one, for the last 3 months...now I see there is a Feb one and a March one :huh:

Anyhow, it sounds like they are still planning to unveil the new site but it is just slow going. New things are on the horizon such as 10 new lip colors (with more pigmentation and the faulty opening twist feature has been addressed and fixed), new soaps and lotion bars, skin care, primers, new brushes, better color swatches, cheaper prices (it's so cheap as it is :huh: ) and so on.

Yep! I like a lot of things at the Monave sight. They have mascara and nail polish along with their makeup.

It's like a lot of false hope. We keep hearing that all these great things are happening and all these changes will be made soon. Well, soon has since gone! (if that makes sense, lol)

WW340, sorry about the shingles and all the pain you are experiencing. I hope you are not uncomfortable for too long.

Thank you all so much. I hope the meds kick it soon, but from what I understand it is likely to last a while.

Yes, EM seems all talk and no action these days, except to take away some favorites like chit chat.

As for how they treat the shingles, they gave me high dose valtrex and lyrica. I am allergic to narcotics, or they would have given me some, so it is Tylenol and motrin for now.

In reading some past posts, there may be a higher incidence of shingles in people with Celiac, as if we didn't have enough to deal with. I have not found anything in medical literature yet to substantiate that though. It does go along with a weakened immune system, and celiac disease does that.

I think she is right. You must have just updated, because those have been there for a while. They would have been better off not saying anything until right before the release.

Yes, their mascara is gluten free.

From the Monave website:

Today, I'm addressing a frequent question that we receive here at Monave: Is our makeup gluten-free? Our skin care and makeup is 99% gluten free with the exception of our Concealer Cream Foundation and Unscented Emollient.They have Vitamin E which was derived from wheat germ oil.

So, just avoid those 2 products and you will be good to go!

I remember my grandfather getting these. This was years ago, but I don't think they treated him with anything back then.

I think so many ailments go along with Celiac too, they just haven't linked them all together or studied it enough.

Hope your meds kick in and you feel better soon!

I got my order today.

Omg the full size kits are huge, I have no room for anything in my train case now, not even an q-tip will fit. Once i feel better I have to organize my train kit lol.

I was mad tho i ordered some soap and it didnt come but on the paper it said they will refund me back my money, ughhhh.

Ok for the new colors

walkie talkie is so very pretty and pink

the other new color is pretty but a little too orangy for me, at least on my wrist it is, will have to see when it is on, but it is much prettier then all smiles blush, now that is orange lol

My order came yesterday too...it was so flippin' busy at work that I couldn't get online to gloat. :lol:

The special blushes are interesting...Walkee Talkee is a nice pink, but the Summer Stroll looks like orange sherbert, lol. Not sure I'll be wearing that one anywhere, lol. I also ordered Theme Park, which is very nice...I'm wearing it today.

Tried the Lavender everywear lotion last night. VERY nice...too bad the jar is so small...but I figured out that one doesn't need much of it...still, it's a really small jar, lol.

Julie, thanks for the link...going there shortly!

Thanks Donna. How long did it last for you? At times this unrelenting pain just seems unbearable.

Sorry it took so long to answer! I'm trying NOT to get on my computer on weekends, and yesterday at work was just so busy I couldn't even breathe, lol. Anyway, the pain didn't last too long once I got on the meds. They say the earlier you get on them the better. I had waited until the last day of the 3-day window they recommend to go see my doctor. They say after that the nerve pain has a greater chance of lingering. How is for you now?
