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

Oh, and forgot to report my "using something other than it was intended" thing...

To Do List...a nice color, but doesn't show up on my eyes and is a bit too light. I didn't have any other makeup on, so swiped a bit of it on my cheek with my finger. It actually made a nice blush color. But I tried it again after putting on my foundation and it was way too light. I used my darkest foundation that day, so I may try this one more time with ligher foundation, and maybe applying it with my finger again, lol. If nothing else it will be a nice color to put on if I'm not wearing makeup at all but want a little glow to my cheeks, which they don't have naturally anymore.

I used dvr saturday blush today and it is very pretty, i might have to get an full size of that one lol. I have not worn eye make up for 3 days now. I am so sick and i dont have the energy to put much make up on. Lately its been a little sunlight concelor, buttered tan foundation(one coat) and my blush and finishing powder and that is all lol. I really hope i get well soon to experiment with other colors and organize my train case lol

It's been a while since we've seen the "you know you're an EM addict when" list, so here it is:

And here is the brilliance in its entirety:

1. You choose your clothes according to the makeup colors your going to wear.

2. You plan a day ahead what makeup your wearing the next day.

3. You know you must have every brush EM puts out.

4. You spend over $30.00 in makeup because you like the new "special".

5. You wear makeup even when your planning on staying home for the day.

6. You plan a shopping trip centered solely around buying "accessories" for your makeup habit.

7. You remove and reapply a full face of makeup more than twice in one day just to see what a different combination looks like.

8. You compulsively check online to see when the EXACT MINUTE is that your EM order will arrive.

9. When your order arrives, you speed home and lock yourself in the bathroom with it so the kids can't interrupt as you paw through it.

10. You start looking at complete strangers and analyzing their makeup and think about how EM would look on them.

11. You take complete strangers hostage from other threads in hopes of raising money to feed your EM addiction.

12. You begin to think of all colors as base, lid, crease, and liner.

13. You're known to stalk DHL vans.

14. You put on foundation (and a bit of blush) to go running, and justify it by telling yourself that the make-up will provide good sun protection.

15. When you refer to your online make-up friends in everyday conversation, people look at you like this ----->

16. You own twelve shades of blush, and plan on ordering more.

17. You considered choosing ten shades of eye shadow an extremely difficult decision.

18. You couldn't decide whether you were warm, cool, beige or neutral, and you REALLY couldn't decide if you wanted matte, semi-matte, intensive or original-glo (and you ponder these things often).

19. Sometimes you feel like kermit.

20. The day is missing something if you didn't 'mix' more than one makeup color together.

21. You know the exact day the EM special will change. And you are seriously ticked off if they extend the current special.

22. On the day the special is supposed to change, the first thing you do in the morning is log into the EM site to see what the new special is. If it hasn't changed yet, you send EM an email to ask what time zone the change will occur in.

23. The second thing you do on the change of special day is to log on to this thread to make sure everyone else saw it and ask what they are ordering.

24. You are seriously bummed out if there are NO new posts in the EM thread.

25. You check the EM site 3-10 times a day JUST to see if there are any new colors or products.

26. you wake up early with the excuse to exercise when really you want an hour to put on your makeup while the kids are still asleep.

27. You cant wait to buy all the brushes and eye shadows in one shopping trip.

28. You email all of your "real life" friends and tell them about EM.

29. You talk so much about EM, your mom tells you to order her some.

30. Foundation, one type of concealer, two shades of blush and one shade of eye shadow is considered a light make-up day (because you usually wear three types of concealer and four shades of eyeshadow)...

31. You've gotten up at 5, spent all day at work, went to chorale practice without having time to open your makeup, get home at ten completely exhausted and still feel compelled to try out the chit chat blush because it's Donna's favorite.....or....wait, was that supposed to be knick knack? Shoot, when is that next special.

32. When you discover that the minerals are discoloring your sink you realize you'll have to do your remodel in "fair medium".

:lol:

1. You choose your clothes according to the makeup colors your going to wear.

I am such a good little cult member! I went shopping on Monday specifically to get tops that would qo with Snowflakes and Pink Pajamas. I was successful and found two great ones. :lol:

I find myself reaching for Floating Feathers a lot recently to use as a base. It's great when I don't want the peach undertone that Good China has.

Does anyone know the details on the new kits that are supposed to ba availble on the new website? Have they said any more about the samples of the different products that they were going to make available? I just checked the calendar, and I have a 3 payday month next month! I plan on investing some of my money in some new EM.

Okay...two things:

1. I have a great little light blue jacket that now has multi-tasking colored stains where the fabric hits my face. The make-up won't wash out. Grr.

2. This new website better be the most amazing thing anyone has ever seen LOL. They've built it up to the point of ridiculousness, and they've been talking about it for eons, but they can't seem to launch it. :rolleyes:

I just felt like ranting. Sorry. :D

Yeah, I finally pulled out the Floating Feathers myself. I'm using it as a highlighter under the brow and on the inside corners of my eyes. Don't know anything about the kits, but I've got one started sitting in my cart, lol.

I just felt like ranting. Sorry. :D

Rants from the founder are perfectly acceptable! :lol:

Sorry about the jacket...so far I haven't had that on my clothing...my washcloths are probably stained to high heaven, but my clothing not so much yet, lol.

Yeah, our hopes have been dashed far too many times before.

We should just expect it to be May 15th :lol:

Sorry about the stains on your jacket Mango, have you posted on the EM boards about this? Maybe another EM faithful had the same problem and knows a solution.

The price of the mini eyehadow kit has dropped by $1, but it no no longer includes a brush. Good thing I already have 3. :lol: I wonder what other changes are in store for us? No new special. They must be waiting for the new site. We have less than a week to wait!

Well, since we're all bumping the post...

I've decided that for dry skin, the original glow or intensive is the way to go. The mattes were gone by the end of the day and left my skin all flaky.

I used the natural blush the other day to try to minimize the orange of whatever blush I had put on (I don't have time to take it off and start over). It worked great. I kind of put it over my whole cheek area and it made it seem less orange.

I also like diary as an eyebrow highlighter.

I really NEED to order another mini kit. I am out of my favorite foundation. On the last one I ordered some summer colors, but spring has not arrived here yet. It will be a long time until I am ready for those colors. :lol: I'm trying to hold out until the new site launches...

I really like the original glo best. My face tends to be dry too.
