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

Recommended Posts

Colleen, that really is a master piece. Great job, just too funny. You should post that on the EM forum.

It is disappointing that the new colors won't be released with the website. Oh, well, that will be good for my credit card health.

Okay, today's revisit: Good China and Comfy, both applied with fingers, lol. I did Good China all over the lids and then a little Comfy on the outside corner/crease. Looks pretty good and very natural.

Just something to point out that this thread belongs in the medication section....

I had some huge nasty rash on my face and managed to get in to see a dermatologist. After getting a list of things I couldn't eat and couldn't put on my face, I asked about make up. He said

"Loose mineral powders are fine. Just no creams or pressed powders."

So those of you with sensitive skin that were debating the pressed powders (as I was), stop it.

Zoiks, Jestgar. I hope the derm was able to get you fixed up. It's great that the doctor said mineral makeup is OK. Maybe he will write us all a prescription for it so we can write it off on our taxes. :lol:

Girls, yesterday was SUCH a bad eyeshadow day. I tried using swing set as a base under cypress. It looked fine in my bathroom at home. But when I got to work and saw myself in the mirror it was quite a different matter. It was so dark and gray! I looked like something out of the Michael Jackson Thriller video. Very corpse-y. I won't be doing that again. Today I did better with birthday cake as a base under shopping spree and in the garden as a liner. But now I am having a bad hair day. I just can't win.

I can't decide if I am looking forward to the new website anymore. If there's nothing new to be had, what's the point?

:lol: !!! Yeah, I keep looking at those but then change my mind, lol.

I think I am still looking forward to it...it will give me something to keep myself occupied until the new colors and products are out, lol.

Yea, I did the dark colors one night too...by the time I got to the party I was going to, I looked 100% DEAD! LOL! It was horrible.

I now only use light colors, although it is limiting.

Oh no Colleen, sorry about your bad eye shadow and hair days :lol: At least you get points for trying something new!

The new website to me isn't really a big deal, I am anxiously awaiting the NEW products...which I am beginning to think don't even exist :lol:

Yes, thank heavens. I can still look like a tart, even if I can't eat one.

Yeah, I'm still looking forward to the new site even if there aren't any new products...I'm geeky that way I guess, lol.

So today's revisit:

Hot Chocolate and Mistletoe. I applied lots of Hot Chocolate with my index finger and a little Mistletoe at the lash line with my pinkie, lol. Very nice. I'm really liking look with the finger application. :P That, again, begged for mascara and eyeliner so I finished it off with a little mascara and some Starry Night as a liner.

Hi girls!

I'm looking forward to trying this make-up out at some point soon. I think I guessed at some foundations to try for the sampler.

It's been so long since I've worn make-up.......it will be interesting.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

So glad you are going to give it a try Andrea :D

When you are ready to fill your sample order we are here to help you through the process.

Mineral make-up is also a little different from other types of make-up so there are some basic application tips to share.

There's still hope, ladies. I just read the latest news. Looks like the new site will be available at the end of the day tomorrow.

http://www.everydayminerals.com/wordpress/?p=146

There will be new products on the site. All the pressed powders you voted for, a ton of new colors, blue and green eye shadows, plus all the functions and things you all asked for to make color selection easier. The site will be easier to use and a lot more fun. So please keep all this in mind.

TomorrowTomorrowTomorrowTomorrowTomorrowTomorrowTomorrow!

I too am very excited. Our good news comes with a bit of bad news, however. In the comments on the last news entry, it was stated that they will be putting in all their efforts on the new website, and there won't be a new special right away. I am excited to browse the new stuff, though. I definitely need to order a new sample kit soon, though. I am getting overrun with all the concealers, though. I have one in every color now, and I really only use the multitasking and the sunlight.
