new car smell as eyeshadow. If you put enough on, it's almost fluorescent orange. Very fun!

OOOOhhhh, and then, since it turns color on me, I'd get to see a kalaidescope of changing color as the day goes on! :P Hum, I'll try it! Wait, hum, maybe it wouldn't turn color on my eyes though...still I think I must try.

:lol:

When I'm on the new website, I often click excitedly on a lovely creamy peachy shade of blush, only to see the words "new car smell" pop up. Then I go like this: <_< (they so lie about that color...seriously, why does it look so pretty online, yet so horrid in reality? :rolleyes: )

I'm actually a bit bummed, b/c I was hoping the colors would be depicted more accurately on the new site. I know it's not possible to get them perfect since computer screens vary, but really...they're pretty off :ph34r:

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

Yay on the traincase and spill on the tooth whitener, I'm interested :lol:

I'm also interested to hear how your brush expeiment goes.

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!!! Can't wait to hear what you think of everything.

:lol::lol::lol:

Perfect! Back to the neon 80s, you could wear florescent clothing and gloves and sing Wham songs to complete the look and feel...not that I did anything like that back then :ph34r:

I'm with you on this. Another frustration I had when ordering is there are several blushes without descriptions that I was interested in. I am finding I am paying attention to the written description and I really go over their wording carefully, along with the visual of the color swatch, to make my decisions.

But then again how many times have we all gotten a color and it was a total unexpected surprise, very different from what was shown and the description.

I guess we just have to try EVERYTHING!!!!!

Placed a new order today. Tried to do it on the new site, but it does not have the option of sending a check or money order as the old one does. I have always placed my order and then sent a check. Had to go to the original site to do that. Hmmm....If anyone is interested, I ordered Fairly Light Neutral Semi-Matte foundation, Email Me blush, Start to Finish Fair finishing powder, and Intensive Light Concealer. ;)

Hey Ya'll!!! :D

After having the time to read only the first 10 of the 164 pages about this incredible make-up, I'm totally sold on it, and I haven't even checked out the website yet! :lol: Good thing my birthday is in 9 days, because some of my b-day money will be going to EM. Right now I'm using Merle Norman's mineral foundation and for blush, etc. I'm using Clinique. I think I'll really like EM better. One question, I have dry skin, so can I apply foundation right after moisturizing?? :unsure: I know if I did that with any other mineral make-up my face would look all cakey. Not a good thing :(

After I get my make-up in I'll tell ya'll what I think about it.

Hey cmom, glad you were still able to order at the old site with a check :)

I'm very interested in hearing how you like Email Me and the Start To Finish, so when you try them out you'll have to post a review.

Welcome Auntie Lurlynn!! I think you will really love Everyday Minerals as much as we do :)

I think I had read a tip to let your mousturizer set for about 5 minutes before applying anything, but I often don't and it seems to work out ok for me, not cakey at all. You will just have to experiment.

FYI, the original glo formulation of the foundations seems to work well for me and my dry skin areas.

Hi, Auntie Lurlynn. I have very dry skin as well. I am a big loser cheater, but I actually mix my EM into my moisturizer and apply it that way. Then I let the moisturizer set for 5 or 10 minutes and buff it in. I get a nice even coat, and no snowy caky face. I use the original glo, the other formulations are just too drying for my face.

OK - today is Mistletoe. LOVE IT!!! It is a great emerald green with a sparkle. Looks great with my green eyes. I used Cliche as a base again today. I am going to run out of this stuff fast, and will have to buy a new one before long.

Colleen, that doesn't make you a loser cheater, it makes you brilliant!!!! :lol:

Dang, Mistletoe is one I had my eye on but passed on in the last minute in my recent order. I thought I didn't need yet anther green (I have cypress, emerald, and pressed olive is on it's way).

I'm going to add it to my list for my next order!

Yes, you MUST try EVERYTHING!

Tooth whitener...I've been wanting to do that for a while, but I've tried the drug store stuff and it just doesn't work, and the dentist's office is too expensive right now...but I was afraid to try some of the other stuff out there, not knowing if it would work or not. Then yesterday, I happened to click on something on a webpage I was on, and it happened to be reviews of some teeth whiteners. They only found two that worked reasonably well, and the second of the two was one that Sephora sells, so I decided to try it. The reviewer was disappointed because it only whitened by 5-6 shades, lol. The #1 on the list went 7 shades...but that was from a website I'd never heard about before. I decided to try the one at Sephora. I'd be happy with 5 shades, lol.

If anyone is interested, I ordered Fairly Light Neutral Semi-Matte foundation, Email Me blush, Start to Finish Fair finishing powder, and Intensive Light Concealer. ;)

Silly, silly girl...OF COURSE we're interested. More than just interested, it is the duty of all cult personnel to report all orders! :lol:

Hey Ya'll!!! :D

Hi there! Welcome! They do have free (just cost of shipping) sample kits you can get, and you can order larger sample sizes of the makeup products too, so you don't have to get big containers of stuff until you know you like them. I see colleen gave the suggestion of mixing the foundation with the moisturizer, which is what I was going to suggest too.

OK - today is Mistletoe. LOVE IT!!! It is a great emerald green with a sparkle. Looks great with my green eyes. I used Cliche as a base again today. I am going to run out of this stuff fast, and will have to buy a new one before long.

I really love Mistletoe!

Ok i tried some of the stuff out lol. Im really shiny tho. I put on pearl sunlight and got some shine under my eyes and nose lol. Then i put on the start to finish powder, I love this. Then i put on buttered tan. Then i tried the free blush and my cheeks went grey almost black, so took that off and went back to phot album. I used the silk dust to finish it off. I do like the start to finish powders. Tommorow i am going to try the presssed powder. I didnt have time to really experiment cause i was getting ready for an baseball game lol.

Im going to use it for an eyeliner i think for the rest of my life lmao.

Ok tried the prssed powder. Ummm i looked like i was going goth lol. I used the pressed olive. I really think they are going to have to make darker shades, because i do love the coverage they give, justnot the color. ALso they dotn mix well with the pearl sunlight at all, it was like seperating all over my eyes and nose lol.

I did like how the start to finish soft bronze looked for finishing powder.

Im wondering what it would do to mix the pad with the pressed powder and our favorite foundation. I looked so bad. My eyes are really red cause of my allergies and crying last night, that they really stuck out with the goth look lol.

Crap i forgot to try some of the lipsticks lol

Oh yeah...I'm wearing Copper today. I got my latest order yesterday, and copper was the lipstick I tried this time. It's a nice color...I thought it would be very orange, but it's not, and it's sort of sheer which is very nice. I mixed it with a pink today just because of what I'm wearing, but it'd be nice on its own too.

Thanks for the info Donna. I might have you try it first and see how you do with it, a guinea pig of sorts :lol: But it sounds really promising, I'd be happy with 5 shades...I'd be happy with even 2 :lol:

Paula sorry about your pressed powder experience :(

I wanted to order some of the lip glosses, but I see they all have sunflower oil in them and I'm allergic. So no EM lip glosses for me. BOO!!
