My eyebrows would be nothing without this product. Really nice for drawing in brows and filling in the sparse spots. Great texture, not too dry, not too smooshy (for lack of a better word...you know what I mean). I like that it's really thin because it's always a perfect size for making natural looking strokes. And the fact that it's mechanical and you don't have to sharpen it all the time makes it less of a hassle. My eyebrows salute you!

Really beautiful pink-ish colour that suits a variety of skin tones. Great on its own to give skin a dewy look or as a base for powder blushes. Helps blush last all day! Love it!
Such a great product. Works really nice as a base, too! I don't ever get creasing from any product so I'm not so sure how it would work for those who do crease, but it is definitely a product I use almost everyday. Love it!
I really like this product. Great colour, great base. I use it as a base or on days when I want a natural look with minimal eye makeup (I'm an NC42 for reference...might not look so "natural" on fair skin). Slap on some liner and I'm good to go.
Love this liquid liner! I threw away all my other ones when I found this. My hg liner! Ridiculous staying power (in a good way)...I have to use an oil based eye makeup remover to get rid of this stuff at the end of the day which can be annoying, but not as annoying as smeary eyeliner. I rub my eyes quite a bit due to allergies (I know I shouldn't but sometimes you just can't help it!) and it stays put. I own 6 or 7 of these suckers and I want them all. My only problems with it are that it took a while to get a hang of the brush that came with it (I like my liner brushes more pointy and stiff) and that it does glob onto my lashes sometimes...but that's nothing a q-tip won't fix. Love this. You need this.
Concealers -Everyday Minerals - Peach [DISCONTINUED]

I really liked how this concealer brightened up my undereye area. I took one lippie off because it didn't completely cover my dark circles but nothing really does except heavy duty concealer. I was quite surprised that a powder concealer would work that well. I find it works best for me if I use my everday cream concealer under my eyes and then use the peach concealer to set it. That way I get coverage and it brightens the area making me look more awake.
Loose Powders -Everyday Minerals - Natural Reflection Finishing Powder
kaiyacarrier 10/19/2008 8:51:00 AM
I really liked the idea of powder that protects your skin from the sun, but I just couldn't find a colour in their line up that suited me. All the ones that were in my shade range were just too pink-ish for me. And used on top of their mineral powder foundations it just looked too cakey and powdery.
My go-to blush. It's a bright peachy colour that you can tone down or play up depending on the amount of product you use. And you don't need a lot of product to get the look you want, which makes the jar last forever (I've had mine for about 5 months and it still looks as full as the day I opened it AND I use it almost everyday!) When I look really tired I use this blush and it really brightens up my face. LOVE IT!
This blush is one of the 2 blushes I use almost everyday (the other is All Smiles, also from EDM). It is a beautiful, rosy, matte colour. Love that I only have to use a minimal amount of product to get my desired look...it lasts forever! I've purchased 2 backups, as well, in case it ever gets discontinued. I love it that much.
Concealers -Everyday Minerals - Sunlight Color Corrector

Did not like the coverage on this concealer. And everytime I tried to use it on my undereye area it just settled in to the lines and they seemed visible from across the room!
I like a lot of EDM products but these do not make it into my good books. The colour payoff is minimal on most of them and don't really have a lot of staying power. And they don't really do any brighter colours. I have 20+ of these e/s that I got in a kit and unfortunately they just take up space in my makeup kit...they never get used :(
I did not like this at all. No matter what I did it always made me look like I'd just smeared dirt all over (all over my nicely applied foundation, no less). Not a fan.
Powder -Everyday Minerals - Foundation Original Glo Formula

I really wanted to love this as a foundation, unfortunately I need extra coverage and this just didn't do it. But I absolutely love it as a finishing powder for my cream concealer! It provides a great finish, not too shiney like Bare Escentuals, just glowy. They come in a ton of shades and are super inexpensive if purchased in a kit :)
I cannot live without this product! Great coverage, but very natural looking. I've used it to cover hyperpigmentation and no one can tell that I'm trying to cover anything. It never looks cakey, plus there are so many shades to choose from, they make a colour for everyone! The only problem I have with this product is the price. Yikes! But I would pay double the price cuz I love it that much.
