Awesome. I've really wanted to try making makeup, but ordering ingredients online doesn't sound appealing to me Sad Maybe someday. Fantastic job on everything!

Wow for everything. So many lip things! Vegetable base goop with micas for gloss. Beeswax, jojoba, carnauba, candellila, sweet almond oil, and some micas, oxides and/or mattifying powders. In little pots or in sticks.

I've found that between 5 ladies, two sessions depleted most of my samples. At least now I know which ones I love and the colors I'd like to try. Holy hell, guys, it gets SO easy and quick. Winterveld mica is my HG for lipgloss and lipstuff and eyes. And the Paradise line colors are absolutely amazing. HIGHLY recommend them if you like the cooler-toned warm colors, not too much sparkle but enough pearl for pop.

And those Pop! colors! Wow, I think those are definitely worth getting the 1 oz containers for the rainbow of eye shadows. The colors I've seen made with those micas... just wow.

fyi--titanium dioxide is used in several countries to increase the biodegredation of smog when mixed in cement or building materials. basically, its a chemical put in blacktop or buildings that wuickly eats up smog faster than our atmoshere can.
also--its put in sprinkles.

so watch out what you eat or put on yourselves.

Let's remember that most ingredients have multiple applications/uses in the world. Lye is actually used in some food applications, like pretzels and some dried fish thing.

I encourage everyone to do their own research and make the best choice for themselves.  Cheesy

Can you provide links to this information? I'm with MareMare in that I think we need information in order to make educated decisions, but I do think we need to consider the source of the information and how accurate it might be. Chemicals are not bad things - every single thing in the world is a chemical - and most can be used in different applications. The castor bean gives us castor oil and ricin, one seed of which can kill a child (although it takes 80 to kill a duck!) Sweet almonds produce oil and cyanide. But we use both regularly in bath and body products.

Here's a post from my blog on the research I've done on titanium dioxide - http://swiftcraftymonkey.blogspot.com/2009/08/mineral-make-up-ingredients-titanium.html. As titanium dioxide is chemically inert, I consider it one of the safest ingredients you could use. But as I said above, everyone is free to make their own decisions.

Very true, Swift. Many items are benign until used in a certain fashion. For instance ammonia and bleach are excellent cleaning products separately, but when combined they form a concoction remarkably similar to mustard gas. I, of course, still use both products extensively, though separately, lol. Cheesy

The key is always research. Figure out what you believe and what you want to use. Smiley

OT: Lye is used in scandinavian cooking to create Lutefisk... fish baked with lye to produce... fish jelly is the best way to describe it, but I like it! Then again I eat it once a year so I don't have to love it.

I like Titanium Dioxide in small amounts. The help with UV rays and the texture it gives is nice.
