The descriptions on the old website were tedious, but they did help me pick the right foundations I think, lol. Now there's a new one I want to try! Yay, lol.

OMG, I LOVE the pearl concealors, lol. I'm going to be a shiney KERMIT! :lol:

:lol::lol:

I just found the lip glosses, I wonder why they aren't in the make-up section?? :huh: That would be my only suggestion for the new site thus far, move the lip glosses to be with all the other make up.

I have my eye on Fresh Linen :D

Andrea, you might have a lot of luck and find your foundation shade first try, I pretty much did. The descriptions can be very helpful (i.e. how your skin is in the sun, tans doesn't tan, the color of your veins on the underside of your arm, what colors you look best in).

Ok girls, gals, ladies (whichever people prefer).......

I haven't worn makeup for so long......

When looking at the eyeshadows, what do you do about blending colors, multi colors on the lid. How does that work? Does everyone use two or more colors now or do some of you still use one?

I LOVE having someone new to play with, lol!!!! Yay!

Generally, I use one shade of eyeshadow for most days. I pick a more neutral shade with just a little color and put that all over, then I'll use a darker shade for an eyeliner, a little mascara and I'm done.

Somedays I'll also add a second color on my lower lid...staying pretty close to the lashes.

Sometimes I'll carry that up at the corner into the crease area...kind of like a sideways V...I guess that would be > lol.

TODAY, I did something totally weird, lol. I put on Mistletoe, which is a nice sparkley green. The last time I used this I put it on over another lighter color and the time before that with a brush--both times it was subtle with just a hint of color. This time I put it on first with my finger. Um, GREEN!!!! :lol: So, I went over that with a lighter color. Then I had to add a dark eyeliner and lots of mascara. :lol:

Are the prices going up for everything? My daughter had gotten a lip gloss at a Princess Tea she went to last week and we wouldn't let her use it as we didn't know what was in it. We plan on ordering her some lip gloss from EM (although it looks more like lipstick.....my daughter is only 8 so we aren't going with makeup for her yet) to make up for not being able to use the other stuff she was given. I noticed on the old site they are $3.50 and the new site they are $4.00.

I haven't been wearing a lot of make-up in the last year and a half, but when I do wear it I generally use one eye color and then mascara. I tend to go for the au natural look, wearing makeup to look like you arne't wearing any makeup kind of thing :lol:

I like to use a neutral like Donna mentioned all over the lid and up to the brow bone. Ginger Peach is a lovely color that most all of us here in the thread love, even with all the different skin tones and colorings represented here.

Years ago when I wasn't as ill, I did multiple colors on the eyes, an all over base color, a lid color, a browbone color, 2 crease and a bove the lashline colors, 2 different eyeliners....THEN mascara!

It really depends on how much (or little) you want to wear, your features, the colors that look best on you, and your mood :P

I'd prefer the more natural look or light coloring. I liked the Ginger Peach too by the description. :lol:

Now to get my daughter to understand this. We've been watching some ABBA videos and the typical late 70's/early 80's look was more. I told her she can't wear makeup til she's a teenager....by then I hope she'll calm down and realize that subtle hilites or natural are good.

Andrea, I think they are re-doing the lip glosses, which to me are definitely more like lipstick. I will say that the ones I've tried so far don't really show up on me at all, so even being more like a lipstick, they don't look like it. I'm hoping the new versions will be more like my beloved lip glosses, sheer with a hint of color.

I hadn't noticed the prices....good eye!

Ok will someone post all the new colors they have out lol.

I have been sitting there and looking at everything and not sure what is new or not.

I know the pearl concelors are new

a few lip glosses are new

Not sure what blush is new.

I think the only eye colors are the blues, right. Plus 2 like white ones.

My brain is not working today.

Okay, how clever are THEY!!!???!!! :lol:

I counted 7 news eyecolors that I don't have (I have a full sized Mistletoe), and there were 3 from the old colors that I didn't order...how convenient!!! That makes TEN!!!! I can order a new eye color kit, lol. :lol:

Wow! It's nice, but I can't get everything to work. I like what I see though!

I definately have to have Bubble Tea eye color and probably Plane View! And it looks like Soccer Practice is a nice lip color.

The custom kits won't load for me so I can't check them out yet.

The pictures are very nice and I think from a first glance that the color swatches are closer than the ones on the other site.

Exciting...now that it's here!

Paula, so sorry you lost your diamond. I have been through that myself. Fortunately, I was able to find it both times. Once was in the trash, so sift through that very carefully. The other time I noticed it was gone just after it fell out of the setting at the dining room table. Don't give up. I am wishing you luck on finding it.

We are supposed to check our settings every 6 months, but few people really do that. I still don't, even after losing the stone twice.

The new site is nice. I had fun putting stuff in my cart.

I know I am getting older, but some of those models look like they are about 12 years old, geesh. I would rather see a few older models, not younger!

Yeah, there have been some comments posted in the news section. Apparently that was the piece of the puzzle that had really been holding stuff back, so they decided to put up the beta site without them. Carina also made a quick little post that there were thinking of offering more in the sample kit. She said 8, but also said she really wanted to do a 10!!! Yay, lol. Although very shortly there won't be 10 things left I haven't tried, lol.

It would be nice to have varying models of all ages.

We plan on ordering her some lip gloss from EM (although it looks more like lipstick.....my daughter is only 8 so we aren't going with makeup for her yet) to make up for not being able to use the other stuff she was given.

Andrea, the original lip colors were all pretty subtle and didn't show up on a lot of people. I recall them posting that the new ones coming out were going to be more pigmented and stronger in color, am I remembering that right ladies?

I had a thought for T, Burt's Bees and some of the other lines carried in the health food stores have tinted chapsticks. Next time you make it to Whole Foods or your local store there you might want to check into these. I think the ingredients are pretty safe and it would be a step towards wearing makeup, chapstick with just a touch of subtle color to it, not exactly lip stick and not exactly chapstick.

I'd prefer the more natural look or light coloring. I liked the Ginger Peach too by the description. :lol:

The great thing about EM Andrea is all the eye colors have been pretty subtle. Also with mineral make-up you just use a little bit and it does appear natural, barely there, even if it is blue.

Of course with the new line they have talked about having darker, and more pigmented colors. And also as Donna has discussed, how you apply it can make it lighter/darker, i.e. with your finger vs. a brush.

I put my EM on my nieces when they come to visit and I put it on so lightly. You can hardly tell they are wearing any makeup, it just gives them a little sparkle, very natural...of course they feel pretty big and proud because they have their auntie's make-up on :lol::lol:

Okay, comparing against my trusty spreadsheet here are the new colors:

I was going to say, it would have to be Donna with her spreadsheets to figure what the new colors were :lol:

I have my eye on the Bubble Tea too.

I know I am getting older, but some of those models look like they are about 12 years old, geesh. I would rather see a few older models, not younger!

Very good point. I read through a thread on the EM site where users gave their ages and locations and there is women of all ages using EM.

I agree they should have models of a variety of ages as well.

OH NO! I just thought of something, are we still able to get into our old carts on the old site??

I better go check, of course I did end up copying over my contents, but still....i panicked there for a second :lol:

I am totally jazzed because I think Shortcake is the blush color I have been looking for and wanting all this time, a deep rose color!!!!

I added it to my cart, as well as Plane View and Starlit eye colors, they are absolutely gorgeous looking/sounding (at least from the swatch and description).

This is so exciting :D

Question about the lip colors, are these the same formulation with these additional colors added to the line-up OR are these newly formulated lip colors. The reason I ask is because I am wondering if it is safe to assume the old lip color reviews still hold up?? :D (i.e. Cherry Fizz or Girl's day from the old site is the same as what is on the new site)

Does that even make sense?

Donna, you forgot to add the new lip colors.

Butterfly Garden is new I think....and English Muffin?....and possibly Soccer practice.

Of course I don't have spreadsheet to consult, just my foggy brain :lol:

I was thinking the same about shortcake when i read it earlier. I like the new blush colors. I will have to try them out.

Those lip colors are new, i am buying every new lip color lol. Im thinking its all the new formula, but i could be wrong.

I wasnt going to get the blues, but hubby thinks they will bring out the green in my eyes. I will have to get an 10 pk of eye shadows, i guess.

Paula GREAT NEWS!!!! I am so glad you found it :D

Thanks julie. Im on cloud 9. You would of thought i ate cheese or won the lottery lol

:lol: Paula

I LOVE the new blush colors, I'm also interested in Snuggle and Wake Up Call (Shortcake is my first choice though)

All the new colors are great overall in all the categories imo.

Another thing I love is the picture of Carina and her kids on the front page, her kids are adorable.

Oh no....I loaded a bunch of stuff in my cart this afternoon and it's gone, I figured as much since I wasn't logged in. If we can't register yet how can we fill and save the contents of our carts??

I'm totally excited for the new site! I just wish it was done earlier. ;) I have waited over a month to order things! :o I LOVE that they have lots of new blues and greens. I have green/hazel eyes so most of the other colors don't look so good on me.

The old site had very little variation of colors...lots were neutral eye colors.

And, why would you want a pearl concealer? I don't understand it...can someone explain?

Nope contents won't stay into the new site until it's fully functional. The stuff is still in my old cart.

Yeah, I didn't have the lip colors on my sheet because I didn't like any of them, lol. I may have to add them now...someone in the news section posted that there is another color there which you can't see...it's almost the same color as the background...must go look in a bit.

And, why would you want a pearl concealer? I don't understand it...can someone explain?

Hum, you mean you don't want to look like a shiney kermit?! Now THAT I don't understand!!! j/k :lol: :lol:

Actually, I'm not sure WHAT I'll use them for, but I LOVE shiney stuff, lol. Sure way to capture my attention and hold it is to put something shiney in front of me. :lol: I think they might be great to add a little bit of sparkle and depth, but not too much...I haven't even been using my concealors lately though, lol. Still I'm ordering every single pearl concealor just because they are shiney! :lol: :lol: :rolleyes::ph34r:
