  2. Hi, I would like to make my own full coverage foundation. Qwerty, in one of the posts you said that the key to good coverage is the fine zinc oxide... Where can I find such ZO? Everyone seems to sell 0.16 or 0.30 micron-sized zinc oxides which are so transparent that they provide almost no coverage (( I would like to buy a zinc oxide that provides enough coverage and is creamy, not chalky looking... Is that possible? Is that something like white iron oxides? I know there are many different colors but I 've read on Make-It-Yourself! Delphi Forumthat there is something like white iron oxides and that they have some special name.... Please help me BTW: I have already read The official make your own mmu thread!
  3. Hi, I know this thread... Anyway, thank you for the link! I was just wondering what professional grinders do big MMU companies use for grinding the minerals....
  4. Hi, What do you think? What equipment do MMU companies use to grind their minerals? I guess they don't use food processors and coffee grinders (though they are perfect for small batches and homemade mineral makeup) Do you have any ideas? Please let me know... Thank you!
  5. Hi, I felt worried when I read: "Titanium Dioxide may cause cancer in humans" on Coastal Scents: Titanium Dioxide MSDS Please let me know what do you think about it... BR, Farraige
  6. Hi, I decided to try to make my own mineral foundation... I want it to have very creamy consistency. Do you know what MMM ingredeints make the formulsa more creamy? I noticed that Valerie Beauty Cover Deluxe (it was my favourite () and Pure Anada (I haven't tried it yet) both list mica as a first ingredient and both are very creamy. Someone mentioned that mica makes the foundation more "powdery"... So it has no sense... Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!

  8. Yes, but the scent of the smell is so individual for everyone... I've also checked other discussion forums and the opinions seem to be promising (e.g. myLot - Anybody a fan of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab? ) I think I will try to order some of them, at least Eat me, Obatala, Euphrosyne, Khajuraho, The Haundet Palace and Queen of Spades
  9. Thank you so much for your responses. I found something interesting - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab: Potions, Perfumes, and Esoteric Brews They sell perfume oils and have very good reviews on Makeupalley - Street Smart Beauty - Homepage Their perfumes seem to be long-lasting and very interesting Here you can find more reviews (Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab has its own Forum) BPAL Madness!

  10. Hi, I need your help with Valerie Beauty shades... In Lumiere FF and VV I can wear light-medium golden. I have light (but not fair) skin with olive tones... What Valerie Beauty shade will suit me the best (I mean Cover Deluxe foundation) ? I have already ordered W2.75... I hope it won't be too dark... Thank you in advance for any help!
