Kathy,
I lop off a bit of lipstick and mush it around in there.  Gotta add some color to the rainbow.

 I was trying to take a little of the crystals out, mix it in a jar and put it back in. 

Is it hard to mix the actives up that way though?

 

My lips are soooo light pink they're almost transparent and blend in with my skin.  I'm wondering if the hesperidin would help???  But I still kind of have to use a lip liner or I have no top lip



Hi, Kathy!  I just got my lip rainbow, ALA and hesperidin Saturday, so I was just starting to experiment.  I am only adding DRY actives with the cut up pipette.  I still have two, so I figured I couldn't go wrong.  It also helps to have a small bore awl or icepick to push the dry actives down the pipette (the pipette has become a very tiny, long "funnel"...I'm going to cut more off the length, which isn't necessary).
My lips are really bright pink and I can get away with no lipstick.  In fact, I loathe makeup, so I'm trying to make my skin and undereyes as good as I can get it.  I did add hesperidin and lots of ALA.  The ALA gives you the tingles that help plump your lips.  I don't have much of an upper lip either...I can relate!  The hesperidin makes my lips look like they have lip color on them, so I'm really happy about it.

I can't really answer your questions...I've had SAS for only about a whopping 10 days, so right now I'm just trying to find the easiest way to get the stuff in the tubes as easily as possible, and trying to learn.

Hi, Rebecca!
I looked up the Pur Minerals upon reading this.  I am confused about the 4-in-1, and Bare Minerals (Bare Escentuals).  The second is more expensive, but seems like it sends you a lot more, all four colors so you can blend for your own color.  The Pur Minerals asks what color you want.  Do they only send you the one color?  I want something I can mix and go with a brush.  I don't need heavy coverage, except for a place where one mole was removed (out of four removed from my face...that's the only one that is glaringly white). 
I'm not much into makeup, so I want something that will be as easy as brushing on and leave it at that. 
Thanks!

Hi Jordan, I use the Pur Minerals pressed foundation compact, I like it a lot better than their loose stuff. I know its pressed, but it doesn't break me out etc. The one I use is in the color medium, but from what I remember of their loose powder, medium in loose is not as good a color as medium in pressed foundation. It is such a silly name, they call it 4-in-1 because it supposedly does 4 things (ie. concealer, foundation, powder and contour?) but yes you probably only get one. They also have a pressed foundation that I use in the summer that is a split compact with two different shades side by side so you can custom blend a color. I haven't ever purchased directly from the Pur Minerals website myself, I know that the website 'shopathometv' has Pur Minerals kits they sell. I did try the Bare Escentuals loose powder once a few years back, but for me it had too much sort of shine or iridescence or something, and I preferred the Pur Minerals pressed foundation. The coverage can be very light, or heavier, depending on what you apply it with, brush or sponge etc. Are Bare Minerals and Bare Escentuals the same company?

Hi, Rebecca!
Yes, surprisingly Bare Escentuals has Bare Minerals on their site, as well as some other product lines.
This is what I want to get: http://www.bareminerals.com/?site=bareminerals.com.
It looks like a great deal.  I want something I can just brush on and go.  I'm so sick of using foundations and concealers.

Jordan,

I've been using Bare Minerals since last August, and I LOVE it. Fast, easy, good coverage (either a little or alot, it's up to you). Really easy to use, wears well, and yes, does have a bit of shine to it, likely from the mica, but that is the intention. It is thought that the shine, or irridescence, helps to hide the fine lines.  I use the foundation, and the "bisque" I use as a concealer and shadow base, light weight, never looks heavy. Also use the mineral veil in a light dusting over everything after application.

Thanks, Debi!  I try to find out about products first, so that helps.  Do you mix for your own colors?  I like a bit of sparkle, rather than a matte finish.

Yes, I do sometimes mix when transitioning with the seasons...I am fair to medium in skin tone and never tan my face so I have to mix after the winter, REALLY easy to do with the minerals. Just dump a little of this one, and a little of that one into the cap, then swirl the brush, and apply with a circular motion. I usually buy it on line and haven't found it discounted anywhere...if anyone has, let me know!
