Wow, that was SUPER speedy delivery :lol:

Andrea, if you haven't read over the last what, 140+ pages, there is something you need to know........

There are little stickers covering the sifter holes on the little containers (unless you have the new closeable sifters), believe it or not some of us (me) didn't know this

Anyone have anything else to add to the above for a first time EM user?? :lol:

Um, no, I haven't read the first 140+ pages. :P

Thanks. :D

Another question......do you gals use lighted makeup mirrors or just your bathroom mirror and lighting?

Oh such a great point Julie!

The one thing I think of most when I first tried the foundation is that it really has to be buffed in a lot! Seems everyone has to play around with getting that right...so don't get frustrated Andrea we have tips for getting the right color too!

Another question......do you gals use lighted makeup mirrors or just your bathroom mirror and lighting?

No, I tried using one in the past (a looooong time ago) and couldn't stand seeing all my flaws. For me it's better not to see so many details. My makeup mirror was magnified....ooooh scary!

:lol: yes good point, the stickers are completely invisible--I found them purely by accident, lol. As you have seen the sample jars are very tiny, so I tap out the minerals onto a margarine lid or if you have a slick paper plate you can use that to swirl your brush into the minerals.

Another question......do you gals use lighted makeup mirrors or just your bathroom mirror and lighting?

I've been thinking about getting one, but I've just used the lighting in my bathroom. I have pretty good lighting in there (although NOT natural, lol). I DO have a magnifying mirror to do my mascara and eyeliner because otherwise I will poke my eye. :P

I would say use less than you think you should. Layer, rather than spackle.

A surprisingly good second motto for our little cult!

Oh, Andrea, our first motto is buy now and buy later. :lol:

emphasis on the AND

Yes, for sure don't spackle! ( :lol: Jess) Light thin layers built up to your desired coverage is the way to go with the minerals.

Definitely familiarize yourself with the technique "to buff/buffing" (good one Joni :D )

Ok, I ventured out and got (gasp, choke) makeup brushes. I got the Sonia Kashuk natural.....I think.....they are the little bit less expensive than the sythetic. I got a 8 brush kit, plus a powder brush for the foundation.

I have a couple of her brushes and really like them, although I have to admit that I haven't used them much, lol.

Where did you get the brushes? Can you tell me roughly how much they cost?

Maybe II could check it out online. I'm looking for more brushes, but I think I want some smaller than the EM brushes. I like the kabuki's but the one I have is really just too big for me. Well, it's fine for all over the face applications, but I really need a kabuki type blush brush that's about half the size, lol!

Let us know how you make out using them and your new EM makeup, of course!

OK, girls, you can unstrap those trigger fingers. The new special is up and looks pretty good. It is enough to entice me to place my order. You can order from either site, but you can't order from both and combine. At least that is what I read today. Still no kits on the new site, so I will order from the old site.

With all orders over $34 (not including shipping) until May 8th you will receive new blushes SALON FUN, a beautiful vibrant fruity pinky red that makes the perfect year around shade; RASPBERRY SHERBET, a glorious rich deep raspberry with hints of sparkly boysenberry; as well as the perfect all around base color SPRING CLEAN with just the right amount of iridescence -- these are all in MINI SIZES, which means they are going to last forever!!! We will have an image up shortly! Thanks so much. This is our pre-website launch special.

Thanks WW340!!! I like the sound of those sample colors.

Always one to analyze every word, I can't help but notice the "pre-website launch special" Could this mean there will be a website launch special that will be even bigger and more special?!?! :blink:

About $32 for the 8 brush kit with case and an additional powder brush for the foundation. I got them at Target.

I tried the fairly light I think it was and it seemed pretty good for a match. If it's the sandy fair that is lighter than it looks too light. Course I didn't use Donna's tip about the lid or plate so I was just tapping the powder onto the brush at this point. :P

I like the blush. :)

Heading out the door pretty soon so I'm hoping I'll have time to put some on before I run out of time.......

On the sale......BOOHOO.....we are totally and completely out of money until payday. :( Then we're still out of money. :lol:

Your welcome, Julie. I am glad they are doing blushes, and they sound like good ones. I wish the pictures were up

You may well be right. That could be the reason for no discount this time. You know our motto though "order now AND order later.

You haven't had time to play with your EM yet. Those kind of thoughts will be fleeting as you fill your cart like a good little addict.

Oooh, lots of excitement in cultville!!!

I see that Andrea has tried and likes our GLUTEN FREE minerals.

:lol:

I see that a new special is up...must go place an order! :P I was going to wait for the kits to be available on the new site, but there are some things I can get from the old site that will go in a kit. Sheesh, I put everything in my cart at the new site on Friday (ALMOST hit the submit button, lol) and it came to $94. So, definitely I'm going to wait for the kits, lol. Still, I can always use an extra silk dust, and I want a full size of my new favorite foundation, so I think I can fill a kit on the old site, and still have enough left to fill a kit or two on the new site.

:lol:

I've decided my most favorite look: Any of my four foundations, but probably Sunkissed Fair the most, Nick Nack, Ginger Peach, Gingerbread man as an eyeliner, my brown/black mascara and my plum frost lipstick. Yes, very nice, lol.

Favorite color of the week: Mystic Night - awesome eyeliner - surprisingly natural-looking (it's a dark sparkly purple/blue - but somehow appears very natural! :lol: )

p.s .Hi Andrea! So glad you joined the cult! :D
