Handmade Natural Beauty Now Offers Mineral Makeup!

As of August 1, 2008 - a loooonnnngggg time in the making, I just added a complete line of Mineral Cosmetics to my natural bath and body products line.

So now besides offering high-quality natural bath and body products, my company Handmade Natural Beauty now offers a pure mineral makeup line. Included are:

Mineral Foundations, Mineral Bronzers, Mineral Finishing Veils, Multi-Purpose Minerals, Mineral Blushes, Mineral Lip Colors, Sheer Mineral Lip Glosses, Super-Matte Eye Color Trios, Mineral Kits and Professional Makeup Brushes.

Finally!!!! I bought a mineral makeup making kit about 3 years ago and have been making my own makeup since then. I have been asked by several customers to add that to my line and its been something I've wanted to do, but, there was a lot to be considered. I didn't want to just launch foundation. If I was going to offer mineral makeup, I wanted a pretty complete line with colors too. So this has been a long gradual process spanned out over the last couple of years. I needed to work on ingredient suppliers, formulas, packaging, labeling, photography, etc. I got more serious about it and have been working pretty steady on the project for about six month. The final push was late July and I was determined to reveal it August 1st. So, after working virtually for weeks straight and staying up until 4:30 am on the 31st, I finally was ready to launch my mineral makeup line! My consultants didn't even know it was coming as I didn't want pressure of "is it done yet?" It was an exciting surprise for all!

Funny: The Zen of Sarcasm

I saw this posted on one of the networks I belong to and thought it was funny. Enjoy!

The Zen of Sarcasm

1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me the hell alone.

2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and leaky tire.

3. Its always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

4. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

5. Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

6. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

7. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

8. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes

9. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is probably not for you.

10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

11. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably a wise investment.

12. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

13. Some days you're the windshield; some days you're the. bug

14. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

15. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

16. A closed mouth gathers no foot.

17. Duct tape is like 'The Force'. It has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

18. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

19. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving .

20. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

21. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

22. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
