Mango04

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

Recommended Posts

May I vent for a moment about a totally non-make-up related topic? Thanks, because I don't feel like starting a new thread. :rolleyes: So, I just moved into a new apartment, and guess what is all over my kitchen? ... seriously....alllll over it......

....Satan...sorry, I meant seitan (is that how you spell it?) :lol:

Of all the foods a person might be able to subsist on, why must my roommate choose pure vital wheat gluten? It is all over the fridge....and there are several packages of it in the freezer, just waiting to be defrosted and distributed to every surface in the kitchen. Seriously, there's probably one person in the entire Czech Republic who even eats seitan (I didn't think they even had vegetarians here lol) and I end up living with her. ug.... <_<

I must move.

Okay, anyway.....

Have you ordered a free sample kit from EM yet? If not, you should! EM discloses all of their ingredients :D

No, I don't mind your vent; I love the girly chattiness of this thread. ;)

I just find out about EM on this thread a few minutes ago, and I am unemployed and broke at the moment, so you can bet I am going to order my free samples today! Thanks ladies.

Don't feel bad Mango04; I live with the Pillsbury Dough-boy Baker, lol. If I give up trying to find a decent professional job and funding for graduate school, I'm going to trade my chips in and go teach English in Hungary or the Czech Republic. I'll come looking for you if that's the case. :lol:

Yeah, I've ordered a few of the free sample kits! You just pay the $3.95 shipping.

I starting using Bare Essentials a few years ago because regular makeup started reacting...then a couple of years ago I started reacting to the BE too, so I was really happy to find this makeup! So far so good!

Now that I'm over venting about it I kind of just think it's funny. Seriously, who eats pure chunks of gluten? LOL and how did I end up living with the one person who does? :blink:

:lol: awesome. We can have our own little gluten-free club in the Czech Republic. LOL It is very easy to find a job here. It is not easy, however, to find a gluten-free apartment LOL, or a street to walk down where pastries and bread rolls aren't practically raining down on you. :lol: The gluten-free pasta is good though - straight from Italy yum! :)

I think I am the only one who has good luck with DHL, lol! I usually get my stuff in about 4 days from the date I order.

The kits were up this morning on the new site, but I can't add anything to them...I got some kind of warning about my computer not allowing cookies and you need cookies to add stuff to the cart. I do have cookies allowed, but it's restricted so later on I'll figure out how to okay it just for that beta website.

You should try the Natural Reflections finishing powder. It doesn't have corn starch in it but gives a nice finish with an added boost of coverage :D

I can't find it on the site, and I'm afraid 153 pages is a LITTLE much for me to read at work. XD

Does anyone mind sharing what gram sizes are for the "small" and "large" eyeshadows are?

In fact, does anyone mind sharing the gram sizes of the foundations and blushes, too?

Thanks ever so much in advance!

Yeah, I stopped using a finishing dust and went to silk dust...my skin seems to like it better. I wasn't breaking out so much as it just felt weird.

I think the "small" eyeshadows are 2 gms. Don't quote me but I think the full size eyeshadows are 6 gms. The samples come in the same size as the small or mini size, but there is only about 1gm or so of product in there.

I think the "small" sizes in blush and foundation are probably 6 grams and the large 8 grams. The samples are probably less than 1 gram, but still PLENTY to get an idea of how you will like it. I used one of the sample foundations for a couple of weeks I think. BUT, if your name is MANGO, you might not last that long. :lol: j/k Mango

Mini Blushes: 2.5 grams

Large Blush: 6 grams

Same for concealer.

Mini Foundation: 2.5 grams

Large Foundation: 8 grams

Mini Finishing Dust: 3 grams

Large Finishing Dust: 9 grams

Mini Eye Color: 1 gram

Large Eye Color: 3.5 grams

I hope that answers your question about size. :) Just so you know, it shows the size of them on the old site, near the bottom of the page for each kind of make up (eg, concealer, foundation, etc.)

I've rather been avoiding saying this, but it really does have to be said: I've developed eczema on my face. :( At this point the flat top brush and any sparkly blush is completely out, but my skin seems to improve minutely when I wear foundation vs. when I don't.

It is very frustrating, though. Takes quite a bit of joy out of makeup. <_<

I'm sorry Birdy. :(

I get eczema on my eyelid so I know what you're talking about, at least a little. It is not fun, and does take the joy out of makeup.

Thanks Kassandra...I'm at home today so am on a SLOOOOOOWWWWW dial up connection and the thought of going over there to get the actual weights was too much for me today. :lol:

Birdy, I'm so sorry!!!!! I want everyone to have fun with this! :angry:

Sorry Birdy, I have some high on my forehead now and NOTHING can cover it up!

Anyone else slipping into their old ways of not tapping the brush before applying? I do great with foundation but sometimes skip the concealer and get eye shadow all over my cheekbones. I think I'm in to much of rush to deal with the opening and closing of each separate item.

I have gone back to some of my old products, that are gluten-free, anyone else using both EM and old stuff?

Yeah, sometimes I don't tap, lol. For me it's just lazyness, lol, I'm just too darned lazy to tap! :lol:

I haven't gone back to my old stuff because that really did cause breakouts for me, but I use all my old lipgloss plus a ton of new ones I keep buying. :P
