Mineral make-up page added!

Since I'm going to be writing a few posts on mineral make-up, I thought it was time to give it its own section on the blog! You can find all the posts on mineral make-up in a section I called...wait for it...mineral make-up! (I know! I'm so creative!)

In this section you'll find recipes for bases, eye shadows, blushes, foundations, and more! I'll be writing a little more on lip shimmers tomorrow!

Very cool! I was thinking about venturing into mineral make-up. Now I have Brambleberrys' site open in another tab. Enabler! :)

Thank you for posting this. I have lots of micas I want to make into eye shadows (as well as colour soaps), and I still have my seracite. I should really get containers and go at it again!

Love this! I just started a mini series on make-up making tips. Now I can point to your series for extra info. We must be in synch :)

I just wanted to say thanks so much for having these mineral make up pages. I have been searching for accurate information on how to go about creating my own mineral makeup. Your blog is the first helpful blog that I have found. I would have been so lost. Thanks to you, I don't feel like I'm going into this experience half blind. Love your helpful blog!

Hi Susan,
Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us!
I was wondering if you have any tips on cleaning the magic bullet after grinding the pigments. I normally spent a good 6-10 minutes, to make sure that the residue of the last batch won't contaminate my next batch.
thanks in advance!

Hi Jess! Thank you for your spam. I'm so glad you've linked to this company because it gives me a chance to talk about how the overcharge for eye shadows. It takes about 4 cents to make one and they are charging $25 for three? Is that worth it?

PS I've reported you to Google, which is why I didn't delete your spam. And why don't you allow comments on your posts? Hmm...are you against receiving spam?

Twice? Twice you come to my blog and spam me with your overpriced eye shadows? $24.50 for a product that costs me maybe 8 cents to make? You are next, my spammy friends! You shall get the attention you crave as I analyze your products! This will be fun!
