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

Recommended Posts

Hi Julie! I am great! Do you know why? :lol: ....because...it only took my make-up six days to get from Texas to my doorstep in Prague (and I didn't have to pay a customs fee), and I didn't even pay for any fancy shipping either. :D :D :D :D :D There are dhl vans here....now I won't be tempted to start stalking them. :rolleyes:

Mango!!! Long time no talk :lol:

OMG, I can't believe your order got to you faster in Prague than it did when you were in Cali, CRAZY!! But great for you :D.

Thanks for your color reviews too!

So people with the pearl concealers, tell me what the diff is between those and the regular, non-pearl concealers.

:lol: Donna at your pale chalky face with the pressed powder. Would using a brush with it defeat the purpose :unsure: but a brush probably would not give you that nice cakey coverage that the applicator did. I'm just guessing here. Maybe you have to tap the applicator real good also, so that you are just applying in light layers.

Hmmm, Shannon I haven't had any trouble with my eyeshadow adhering. Is there too mush moisture on your eye area before you apply? I don't know if putting a base layer of something else like a concealer or a finishing dust would help also. Other than that I don't have any ideas......

I started using either foundation or the finishing powder before the eyeshadow and I get better coverage.

The pearl concealors seem to be a tad lighter than the regular of the same color, but they have a SHEEN...it's a pearlescent sheen...not sparkles. Think oil slick shine, not sparkle shine, lol. I'm really liking them because they give me a slightly dewy look without looking oily...I mix a MINISCULE amount with some silk dust (like one little dot of pearl concealor to two taps of the silk dust, lol) and put that all over my face as a primer layer, then my foundation over.

From what I've read on the EM boards and my own experience, the pear mint shows through just like the regular does, but what someone over there said is that it's made to cover redness but also meant to put another concealor over it.

Yeah, I'm going to try with a brush next. I really think I just got the wrong color...there are a couple which look a little darker so I think I'll try those before giving up. If one puts it in the $50 kit, the items only cost slightly more than $4 each. Great bargain on foundations and powders!

I put on the decrease, then a little of the silk dust/concealor on it which also seems to help.

That is why i bought 3 foundations in my 50 buck kit. I was like you cant beat that price. it really isnt cheaper to get the lipsticks in that kit tho. I think next time i will put the lipsticks in the 18 buck kit, then they will be 3 bucks each lol.

Im still waiting on my order.

Donna I will let you know if i like my pressed foundations when i get them since i got an darker shade then you lol.

I finally had time to place my order. I probably did it too late to get the special, but it did give the discount. It said the special was good TO the 14th. I don't know if that included the 14th which is when I ordered.

Anyway, I agree with Paula and Donna about the $50 kit. That is a great bargain, especially with 20% off. I just couldn't resist. I ordered a lot of experimental colors, that I might regret, but at least I will have a lot of it lol.

I am pretty sure I will love the pearl concealers (thanks for your review, Donna), so I got those - pink, beige, and sunlight.

I got 2 of the pressed powders, light pink blush and ivory. I got the new foundation - soft butter peach. I figure it will be good for mixing if it is not just right.

I ordered 2 new blushes one that Donna said looked like a true pink, shortcake, and wake up call. I got wake up call in the free sample kit. It looks very intense.

I ordered starlight eye shadow and soccer practice seperately.

I found the new site to be very cumbersome. Also, even though I was logged in, my kit was never saved for me. It would save the items I had picked individually, but never the kit, so I kept having to redo it. I finally just reloaded the kit and ordered immediately.

I just placed my new order! :D :D :D

I can't quite remember just what I ordered, though. :P I know I got at least one lip gloss. I also found out that using a slightly wet makeup brush and "blotting" with it helps the powder go over a creamy goop (like hydrocortisone cream) better. :P

Thanks Donna for the pearl concealer info :)

I'm excited about everyone's orders!!!

How long does the 20% off last, I can't find the special announcement on the new site :huh: ........I'm probably looking right at it.

I ordered mine on 6/6. I had hoped to get it Friday or Saturday, but it's not here yet. Maybe today? I am going through tracking number withdrawl on the new site! Although, I did ship USPS, and their tracking information is never up to date anyway.

You should email Customer Service. Last week they were having all kinds of issues with orders. They are all caught up on the orders and emails so just email them as say that your order still says funded after a week.

My order came yesterday!!! :wub: I am so in love with the blue shadows I ordered. They are all pretty much the same, with subtle differences. I probably could have gotten away with only one, but I am a girl who likes choices! :lol: Today I chose Starlit. it is the perfecto combination of blue/green/gray. It will go with a lot of my clothes. When they said the free Launch party blush would be full sized, they were not kidding. Holy crap, this thing is massive! It is going to last me forever. I used it as a blush today, even thought I am not a big fan of brown blush, and it is quite nice. It is a nice sparkly color, but not too dark. It would make a great bronzer if I can ever get the application technique down. I got Shortcake blush in my sample kit. It's quite a bit more orange than I expected it would be. I will try that one out tomorrow. Soccer Practice lip color is my favorite so far. Really nice and natural color. I also got cherry fizz, which I think may be a little light for me.

All in all, it was worth the wait. I can't wait to do more experimenting after I get home tonight from work.

Yay!! I am so happy to hear this, this is exaclty the blue I am looking for.

What are the other blues you got that are similar?

A question about the problems with the carts.....reading what many of you have reported that you had to keep filling and refilling when you ordered, does this mean we can no longer fill our carts and save the contents like we did on the original site???

Julie, the answer to your questions is maybe, lol. I have successfully saved a cart, and I have also had it disappear. There are still some glitchy little problems, but overall it's working fairly smoothly.

I had a nice $50 kit in my cart yesterday, which had been in my cart for several days, and actually tried to order it yesterday, but had a page error, so it didn't go through. That worked out well because I rethought my purchase and decided to go for the personal full size kit instead. Watch your order carefully...I had deleted the $50 kit and put in my personal full size kit, and it "remembered" a foundation that I had put in from yesterday...had to delete it and start over.

I finally DID order today...nothing exciting, just getting full sizes of the foundation and another of my favorite blushes, plus a blush brush and another lip gloss.

I washed my brushes last night so they were still damp this morning...not a problem, except that the only brush I don't have a duplicate of is the blush brush...so got that ordered, lol. Had to use my old BE brush...YUCK. :P

I'm still afraid to try to the new blue eyeshadows, even though they are dark. The only one I've tried so far is Starlit as a liner.

drive by (sorry): I'm wearing well being as a liner today, mainly b/c I accidently picked it up and was too lazy to dig for something else. I really like it though. Not too purple, not too dark - great liner (Just thought I'd share :rolleyes: )

Has anyone checked out the EOTW thread on their forum?

Um, I have neuro lyme...you might need to be a little more specific for me! :lol: :lol: :lol: I went over there and didn't see anything that looked like EOTW! :lol:

I still can't log in over there so I can't help.

I read that they have had problems with migrating everyone over, so maybe I'm one of those. Is it still your email for logging in.

Yep, email. During the trial period I couldn't log in with it, but eventually it seemed to clear itself.

Thanks Donna! Speaking of your brushes I think that is what I am going to ask for my birthday, a whole set of EM brushes :D You guys rave about them so much, especially in comparison the the BE brushes (which I am currently using). SO time for me to upgrade :lol:

Hi Mango, thanks for the Well Being review :)

Jess, what is EOTW???? :huh:
