Wouldn't it smudge like crazy?  I always think that's the goal of shadow sticks - to smudge out and blend.

I love all the little containers we get in these bags.  =) 

 

I usually have coconut oil and of course olive oil around the house.  I'd ordered beeswax pellets, vitamin e oil, and fragrance oils that are safe for body lotions and lip balms to make a Beeseline-ish product.  So I was looking at the little face cream and lip scrub and bear balm containers from this month, and the lip jelly tin from last month, and decided when I empty things, I'm gonna make a few teaspoonsful of lip tint to reuse the containers.  Went to The All Natural Face online and bought one of their vegan mineral blush samplers.  27 colors for $5.00, plus $1.50 shipping. 

 

1/2 t olive oil, 1/2 t coconut oil, 1/2 t beeswax, 1/2 t or so of one of the pigments, a few drops flavored oil, drop or so of e, throw it in the microwave in a glass Pyrex measure and stir every 30 seconds.  Pour it into a container when it's liquified and let it set.  I'm guessing somewhat at measurements, but based on recipes on the web I'm thinking I'm not too far off.  I figure it'll probably end up being about a-buck-and-two-minutes-work per shade.

 

Edit - now that I think about it, I'm probably high on the amount of pigment powder.  I'm thinking one package per few teaspoons of stuff.  It'll be interesting to see how far off my guesses are from what I really should use!  ;)

Did anyone think the Bear rub/ balm smelled a little off. I don't think it was bad, to me it just had a mix of medicinal smell and skunk phermones.

But on a more pleasant note , I'm loving the lip scrub!!!  heart.gif

I don't smell any skunk in mine.  Just the tea tree medicinal-strong.

I love DIY recipes so might give this a try! Tnx :)

 

I don't love the smell of the bear rub, it's just like tea tree oil. I really do like the scrub too! Smells amazing :)

 

They sent a newsletter about project lipstick toss. I have alot of lipsticks I won't ever use so I might give this a try! http://projectlipsticktoss.com/

Finally got my box yesterday.  the facial cream lid was loose so the product is all dried up so disappointed.  anyone ever have an issue with an item?  how was it resolved?

post #189 of 400

Here is the color of my shadow stick - I could probably use it as a blush/lip tint as well:

Here it is smudged out:

me too.  I have the loose eye shadows and the shadow stick in grape thati I am not intererested in keeping.  let me know what your looking for.

 

  on another note overall I am happy but at times this company just doesnt seem to have their act together.  I recevied a sample of a cream lip and cheek blush that I would love to purchase.  I have emailed several times to find out how I can buy it and no one can tell me.  how crazy is that. how hard should  that be? This has been going on now for 3 weeks...

 

( it was in a small plastic container in a plastic bag.  all it said was new cheek and lip tint in dusky rose)

Does someone have a code to order deliciosozo skincare or the golden berries cream from the site? Thank you!

I'd guess it was The All Natural Face.  I don't see the color on Natural Beauty's site, but here it is on TANF:  http://theallnaturalface.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.details&ProductID=117729 

 

They gave a blush from Ferro, or something like that, but it was in a container with a black lid that had the company name.

post #196 of 400
I meant a coupon code for ordering from site. Thanks
post #197 of 400

Oh - sorry.  The blush I thought you meant was sent several months ago.  Don't know if the codes would still be current, but I didn't hold onto mine to check.

thanks but this is not it.  It was actually a cream blush.  Did anyone else receive this?  it was in the October box.  It was in a small palstic container and says new lip and cheek tint dusky rose   it was in a small plastic bag with the eyeshadow primer.   . Its pretty sad when they company themselves cant tell me.  I would love to buy it...  AHHH

Oh - I missed that you said it was lip and cheek.  Still not on their site with a coupon, but could this be the product?  It comes in the Dusky Rose - http://theallnaturalface.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.details&ProductID=123515 

post #201 of 400
Thank you!! This has to be it and the price is right. Have you ordered from the all natural face before ? Thanks again!!!!
post #202 of 400

I have ordered from them multiple times before.  Got some shadows and the blush sampler - all came within a few days.  Ordered their primer and moisturizer about a week and a half ago, and it took just over a week to receive - think a little longer due to the holiday.  Also got their December Beauty Box, which arrived today.  I was upset because it was supposed to arrive about a week ago and they got it out late, but now that it's here I love the products. They do offer Paypal, so you're not at risk giving your credit card number to an unknown if you're nervous.

post #203 of 400

Is it me or do these companies ship way too late. Its December 24th and still no shipping notification of the December box. Why not just call it the January box??

post #204 of 400

It's not just December with this company.  November's came in December.  On FB they promised the Dec one would come early.  Now they're saying they meant the $50 Christmas box would go early (people got that last week - wow!  Really early!) and that the Dec one would go earlier than the Nov one, which went out on the 28th or something like that.  For the last week they've been promising that they're "getting it out".  *Sigh*

post #205 of 400

This company is starting to remind me of GOGOGirlfriend!  I won't be giving any more money for sure. 

 

A pet peeve would be lying to your customers over and over, and leaving them in the dark on shipping status of items they paid for. 

 

I keep hearing for a few months about having problems finding help. I think that is untruthful too.

On the other hand, you could say they've been very consistent wink.gif

 

I expect to receive my box at the end of the subscribed month or the beginning of the next month.  It's actually similar to Eco Emi in that respect, minus the tracking #'s.  Because they've been consistent in that respect, I don't sweat it and consequently don't get frustrated. 

 

Not sure how that compares to Go Go Girlfriend, as I never subscribed to that service. 

post #207 of 400

I just got an email.  They're just putting together the December box.  To "get back on track", they're skipping January.  If you ordered January, you'll get the February box early Feb, and if you have a sub it'll be pushed "forward" (shouldn't that be "back"?) one month.  How exactly is making people wait an extra month getting back on track?

post #208 of 400

I can forgive Eco Emi's shipping (depending on when you first purchase the sub, you may pay twice before you get your first box, but everything comes consistently on time and you end up getting another box if you end your sub, so you do get what you pay for).. but something's really "off" about this company.  I paid for the Dec box Nov 7.  I'm glad I only purchased a 1 month subscription to try it out because so far I'm completely unimpressed. 

post #209 of 400

I'm still really enjoying the products I've been sent, and as long as they communicate with me regarding problems/delays, I'm okay.  I got the same email Mellee mentioned.

 

I only do month to month as well and have ordered about every other month thus far, so any potential damage is limited to $20.  Since I'm happy with the products and have received my boxes, I'm still not seeing a problem.

 

The lip scrub and eye serum are my favorites thus far, but there hasn't been anything in the boxes that I thought "ugh". 

post #210 of 400

Yikes. I was about to sub to this. Glad I check out this thread first!
