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

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I keep checking every day to see if there is a new website, lol.

Is there a new color, or did I miss something??

Thanks for posting the news...I hadn't seen that one yet.

No new color...she's referring to my avatar caption, lol.

The B12 spray sounds great...I'm going to ask my doctor about them...I'm giving myself B12 shots (or supposed to be, lol), but I'm having a HARD time giving them to myself and it's such a hassle to go in to get the shots. I was doing sublingual B12, but my doctor thought that wasn't good enough so I'm on the shots.

This does sound much better than shots. It is hard to do them regularly to yourself. Hope it works for you.

:lol: That is shocking......and aweing (? :huh: ).... very hard to believe the bright orange would look "nice".

It goes back to not judging a color by the way it looks in the jar, you never know what it's going to look like on. I guess I should be brave and finally try out B & B, but I think with that the high pigmentation is more of an issue than its color.

Did you guys check out the news, looks like it was posted just today:

http://www.everydayminerals.com/wordpress/

That is encouraging about the new color. You are right Julie, we can't always judge by how it looks in the jar. I have a few I haven't tried yet, because I didn't like the looks of it. I guess I ought to give them a shot.

Did you notice the statement about the new jars?

I wondered why they weren't using the sifter tops that close. The laura Marcier jars all have sifters that close. Now I may have to wait to order my full sizes when they come out with the new jars.

Does anyone us the natural blush?

I haven't tried natural yet...I've been wondering about it, but the color swatch on the website is kind of grey, lol. I'm hoping the new website will have better swatches.

I like natural. It's more of a complexion enhancer than an actual color. I think it would be too light for you guys though. (It's basically just a very subtle shimmer).

Donna...what's wrong with you!? :lol: You mean, you don't LIKE inflicting pain upon yourself! LOL! I understand, I don't like doing the shots either...but I do get an "A" for effort from my Dr. :rolleyes::P He was shocked I'm still doing them! LOL!

About natural, yea, it does look really gray. I don't like sparkly things all over my face. I like sparkles in eye shadow, but not all over my face. I guess I'm weird like that. B)

I really need to organize my train case, donna are you free this weekend lol. I have many colors that i have not even opened yet. Colors that i have opened but never used. I dont even have all the eye shadows together, blushes together and it is driving me nuts.

Hubby said he is willing to buy me a train case that has the wheels lmao

I am glad I am not the only one. I ordered the natural blush, because so many people were raving about it on the EM board. I was really disappointed with it. It sure won't work as a blush for me.

I agree about sparkles on the face - not for me.

How about waffle cone? I think some on here have liked it. I have not ordered that yet.

Paula, I wonder if they have one with wheels and a motor?

My husband looked at me and my collection the other day and asked "how is it possible you have so many little containers of stuff, and how is it possible you actually use a little bit out of each one of those?" I told him it was even more unbelievable that I actually need more. LOL

I am beginning to look like a mad chemist.

Horrors of Horrors...I had to leave the house without eye makeup today! :o It's true. Something happened to one of my eyes during the night I guess...woke up feeling like some big gob of something was in there, but there isn't anything there. It's still red and watery and still feels like something is there. I figured since it would all just wash off anyway there wasn't any sense in wasting my precious Ginger Peach, lol.

You know, it isn't really even so much the pain, although that is certainly not a favorite thing of mine, lol, but it's more that I think I'm going to kill myself with it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

:lol: !!!! I have just one thing to say...SPREADSHEET! :lol:

Yeah, I like waffle cone...I probably don't love it as much as some do, and definitely doesn't replace my favorites of Pink Ribbon and Nick Nack, but I do like it.

Paula, I wonder if they have one with wheels and a motor?

:lol: !!! Yeah, motorized wheeled train case. :lol: Heck, I've been thinking I should have got the Sephora one after all...I thought it was so HUGE when I looked at it again, but sheesh, these full sized containers are huge and I had to do major reorganization to get half of them to fit in. Wouldn't be so bad if I could decide on only ONE or TWO foundation colors, but I've got full sized containers of 3 so far and I'm going to order another one on my next order. :rolleyes:

Check out the news on the EM site! The new site will soft launch on 4/25!

http://www.everydayminerals.com/wordpress/?p=143

I see a new EM order in my future. :)

I was short on time this morning, and had to make a decision on which I was going to do - fix my hair or put on EM. Guess which one I chose? I'll give you two hints - smokey pink eye shadow and a pony tail. :)

I may have to get waffle cone, just in case.

As a good cult member, you obviously made the right choice.

Hello everyone! I definitely wasn't expecting to find mineral makeup on a gluten-free site! I've been using minerals for several years now. I have some EM, but never got hooked on them.

If you want to explore more minerals or have fun in a different mineral forum, check out http://forums.delphiforums.com/mineralmania/start

There are about a zillion mineral makeup brands out there. WAY too many temptations!

I just got it with my order. I am anxious to try it.

Welcome to our mineral thread. I would have checked it out, but it requires registration first, so I will pass, but thank you anyway.

I got my order last evening. I did get the special with it this time, thank goodness.

I got a personal custom kit. Those full size containers are really large lol. I was also surprised that the blushes and concealers came in the same large size as the foundation. I don't know why, but I was expecting those to be somewhat smaller. I now have enough concealer to last me a few years lol.

I also got the long handled kabuki, an extra baby kabuki and an extra flat top. The baby kabuki looks just like my original baby kabuki but is just slightly smaller in brush length. The flat top was just the same as my older one. I may order another set of the nice brushes just in case they decide to change them. I ordered this set for travel.

I ordered the pink ribbon. That looks very pretty. It looked so light on the website, that I had never ordered it before.

I haven't tried the new blush colors yet. I will be playing with them today.

So you know how we were all getting different brushes? Well, I emailed EM customer services and explained the situation, and they asked for my invoice number from the order with the crummy brush.

Apparently I ordered the old kabuki (the crummy one!!) and their new brushes are the nice ones.

So, has anyone recently ordered a brush from them that is yucky? Or did they really change their brushes?

The good news is they offered to send me a free kabuki! At least they have great customer service. :)

The new ones are so much softer and nicer. I hated the first one i ever got. I even threw it away this week after i got 2 new ones lol. I only used the old one once. I would let them send you a new one. That reminds me i need to email them and see what they are going to do about the refund they owe me, Im going to ask just for a sample kit for free lol

Buttered Tan Matte

Light Matte

Medium Beige Matte

Multi-Tasking Neutral Semi-Matte

Multi-Tasking Neutral Intensive

Fair Matte

Deep Tan Matte

Sunkissed Fair Matte

Multi-Tasking Neutral Matte

Sunkissed Fair Original Glo

Fairly Light Original Glo

Medium Original Glo

Multi-Tasking Neutral Original Glo

Fair Medium Intensive

The buttered tan doesn't work for me. Fair is the closest to my neck color, but my face is so red it just looks too weird to change it that much. I think multi-tasking is going to be the best choice, although most of the others can be used if done lightly. Now I just have to figure out the formula I like best. The mattes are pretty drying, and my skin is dry enough already.

That's a lot of foundation Jess :lol:

I like Original Glo for dry skin (not that I have dry skin, I have more combination skin), but the other formulations dried me out.

Donna!! I missed this about your eye. I am so sorry :( Hope it's better, but since you haven't been around I am worried that might not be the case....

Thanks Kassandra for the latest on the brushes, i need to email them because I definitely got a crummy brush with my eye color kit.

Morning everyone! I took a break from computers this weekend...didn't even turn my computer at home on once the entire weekend.

Hello everyone! I definitely wasn't expecting to find mineral makeup on a gluten-free site! I've been using minerals for several years now. I have some EM, but never got hooked on them.

Hello and welcome! Yeah, many of us have tried other brands...I started breaking out with BE, so was happy to find EM, which doesn't seem to.

I hope your eye is better today.

..

So, has anyone recently ordered a brush from them that is yucky? Or did they really change their brushes?

Yes, it's better...so far no stye, but it still feels irritated a little.

None of the recent brushes I've received have been bad or yucky...they're all good. :)

I now have 14 foundations! :o

I fear a spreadsheet is in my future...

:o:lol: :lol: I think you MAY have more than me...must check my spreadsheet....okay, no, I have 19 if you don't count the different formulations of the same color, lol...27 if you do. BUT, I only have 3 in full sized containers...about to get the 4th though. :rolleyes::ph34r:

Donna!! I missed this about your eye. I am so sorry :( Hope it's better, but since you haven't been around I am worried that might not be the case....

Eye is better, but was still bad on Saturday. AND, my stupid neck and shoulders were excrutiatingly painful so I decided to NOT get on the computer at home (where my setup is not ergonomically correct, lol). When I was sick, I coughed so hard that I strained a muscle in my chest and head, and apparently threw something out in my left shoulder blade area. If it's not one thing it's another. :lol:
