Gorgeous!!!!

I was really thinking hard about what "eotd" stood for...........and I finally figured it out! :lol:

Also, I see that the special has been extended to the 21st, with a new freebie blush being offered with orders after the 19th.

Thanks Jess! WOW, that first set of photos is GORGEOUS! I can never get mine to look like that so I gave up and just use one color now. :lol:

Yea, that was pretty much my response - Wow! I could never do that

OK, I really do hate to complain, but I am going to anyway.....

I HATE THE NEW SITE!!!!!!!!

I have spent like the last hour and a half trying to fill my cart, and it's tedious enough to select the colors and drag them to the carts in order to fill all the kits, by the time I had 2 filled and was on to the next thing they had been removed. I now have one of those headaches from concentrating and working at something so hard! :rolleyes: So I am giving up for now and will return to it later.

Does anyone have both Samba Lessons and Starry Eyed? They look and sound so similar, I'm wondering if I even need or want both?

And do we get a brush with the mini eye shadow kits? It just doesnt mention it, that I can see anyway.

I have both. I really love Samba Lessons...it's a dark sparkly brown. Starry Eyed is more mauvy brown...it's also dark and sparkly. Had I not just gone to the site to check them out I was about to say they aren't even close, lol... IMHO you really need both! :lol:

Yeah, the new site has its moments!

I guess that was a dumb question of me to ask, for two reasons..........1) of course you have both Donna, the girl who has every color :lol: and 2) of course I need both :lol:

That is one of the mottos isn't it? More is better?!

Yes julie you need both colors, i love them both. Im with donna and have every color, well besides the new blue ones lol.

I would love to make another order for the new color lol. But since i still have not even gotten the one i ordered so long ago, i doubt im going to order. I have emailed them 4 times and get no repsonse. I emailed them last week about an technical problem and they never responded then either. Im really get angry. I really dotn think it should take over 10 days to get here, when mango got hers after what 5 days in another country.

What are the other blues you got that are similar?

Here are all the blues I got.

Plane View - more to the gray side

Starlit - a blue/gray/green mix with a silvery sheen

Happy Go Lucky - more toward the periwinkle side, but not nearly as dramatic as the picture on the EM site

Bubble Tea - a lot like starlit with more turquise in it

Bird Bath - a grayer blue

I chose bubble tea on the lid with cliche as a base today. Bubble tea is a really nice turquoise with silver thing. Cliche is the base I have been searching for. Less pink than good china, but with a nice sparkle, not as gray as rare silk. I think Cliche will be my new favorite base.

I get it now. When I first saw EOTW, I thought it was short for "End of the World". You know how dramatic some people get on the EM site about their makeup. :lol: Great thread with lots of good ideas. I will never be able to recreate them to her level of detail, but good ideas to be sure.

I have both of those. Samba lessons is a sparkly brown. Starry eyed is a sparkly brown with a purple tone to it. I use starry eyed when I want tomething more subtle, and with the cooler eyeshadows like the purples. The eyeshadow kit I just got did come with a brush. I thought it would not, since they don't mention the brush on the site, and the cost of the kit went down by $1. Unexpected and great!

I accidentally ordered my order twice. :unsure:

And I need new summer foundation (who'd've thought with how little time I spend outside? :huh: )... and a new brush. Hm... I'm thinkin' I'm gonna be ordering again no matter what. :P:rolleyes:

Colleen, this was incredibly helpful! Some of these colors I was on the fence about, and now with your description I can narrow down my choices. Cliche definitely caught my eye and was in my cart, it sounded like it would make the prefect base and you've just confirmed that :)

Good to know the mini eye kit comes with a brush. That is awesome it's a dollar cheaper and still including the brush!

I also thought that the blues were very similar, but when you get them on, they have some differences. All great colors. I totally love 10 Items Or Less! And Well Being is an awesome liner, as is Mystic Night! I have on Mistletoe again today, I can't stay away from it now, I think it's my new favorite. I really like Launch Party, for a blush and shadow, and Natural lip gloss is so nice with the bright colors.

Thanks for the advice on the splotchy eye color. I've been applying foundation to my lids now and haven't had it happen again, and the shadow seems to las longer.

I was glad there was still a brush with the mini eyeshadow kit, because I got an angled brush this time that I adore.

I feel another order coming on...... :P

Julie - I know our fellow wise cult members have already given you an answer (and you already knew the answer anyway :rolleyes::lol: ), but yes...you absolutely need samba and starry.

I like starry eyed for an everyday eyeliner. It has that dark, yet still natural thing going on that EM does so well. Samba lessons is a bit richer, and somehow goes on thicker for me. It's more of a nighttime, dramatic type of look.

Does anyone else wish they would use the pearl concealer formula in the eyeshadows? I've been using pearl pick me up pink (ppmup lol) on my eyes and I love it. Sunlight pearl and ppmup remind me of Benefit moonbeam and highbeam, if anyone's ever used Benefit.....

Thanks Andrea, I'll post my reviews when I get everything and the experimenting begins :lol:

It's a good idea to take notes when someone raves about something, or mentions something that you are interested, otherwise it's impossible to remember and too much of a hassle to go back.

I've got to stop reading this thread. I just placed another order :ph34r:

(I clicked '2' on the free kit. I'll let you know if they send 2) ;)

:lol:

Yes, do tell if you get 2 out of the deal. ;)

Ha, I ordered my train case. A present to myself. :) Also a tooth whitener.

Today I tried to use the Pearl Beige as an eyeshadow...it looked pretty good but was just a hair too light so I put Gingerbread man over it, and I really, really liked that, lol.

I also switched the brushes I use...Normally I use the flat top for my silk dust layer, then use the long handled kabuki for my foundation. I switched them today...still not sure what I think about that. I'll get back to you. :P

Guess what, Guess what lol

I got my makeup. I also now know why it took so long. I paid for usps priority and i got it from dhl. I was so mad tho cause it was 15 minutes after i did my makeup lol. I was out of sunlight so i had to use mint lol. I still have to look over everything.

I am happy again that i got it, even tho it took forever. Even tho I have to find room for the stuff i bought now lmao

Yay Paula!!!! So happy you finally got it! How'd the dreaded DHL get a hold of it, lol?! :lol:

You'll have fun playing!

I've decided when I'm off for my foot surgery, I'm going to play with stuff. Like this morning. I really love Gingerbread man, and thought it might look good as a bronzer or blush, but was too afraid to try it. I'll try it on a day when I don't have to go out, lol.
