New Fall Pressed Silk Eye Shades by Pony Dust Cosmetics

What are we up to?

Show season is up and running in our area then off I go to South Carolina (just when it get cool yay) to watch my step son graduate from basic training. It will be a nice trip and a much needed time out.
We have been creating so much great stuff and I have not had the time to list any of these wonderful creations.
The top product release is our Pit Juice a natural and very fresh scented deodorant that everyone who has tried it loves. It is good for those who have had breast cancer as it does not have anything in it to stop your natural flora and lets you sweat. It has sodium carbonate to absorb orders and essential oil blend to fight bacteria.
When  I first started using this deodorant I thought well it doesn't work I stunk. A friend who uses natural deodorant told me it takes a while for your body to adjust and at first you have to put it on all the time but after a few days once and done.  I am there and find that I love it.

We have changed our minerals to a pressed powder. I got sick of all those little sifter containers and the sifter covers coming off. The leaking and not to mention the labels. Millions of little labels everywhere and the keeping them straight. These pressed powders are pressed with our pressing solution of fractionated coco nut oil, jojoba oil, dimethicome, cyclomethicone and  polysorbate to hold it all together.
If you have ever used Motive or Matrix's cosmetics these are comparable. I am not sure but believe Motives is actually manufactured by Mac cosmetics.
Our mineral eyeshadow formula is creamy yet goes on dry and silky smooth. Our silky eye shades minerals are listed on the site and you can purchase them in the 2 gram size. I have some in screw cap pots but will be replacing them in a flip top silver pot. I found my eyeshadow pans fit better in the flip top.

You can also get a silk shadow Pony dot sample. I will be listing them as a 9 shade set. Each pressed silky shadow is .50 grams and will be available in a small clear compact. We will also be selling our silk shades in a quad you can mix and match. I will be trying to list them this weekend. Plus add more colors. Our entire pallet has changed so those of you who have joined the eyeshadow club will be getting new samples soon.

Our newest Colors are the Fall 2010 Collection of bright deep and very bold colors. You can wear them together or with other shadow shades. They are meant to be worn in combination as eyeliner and shadow.The entire collection is $26.50 You can also get them in single pots and buy just the colors you want.
These are a great way to add a bit of color to your every day make-up and try something new
Single pots are $9.99

We have many other colors listed and will have more in the next few weeks. See you all next time. Oh and be sure to check out our Body Butter Sale. Makes a great Christmas gift.

Having Dry Skin How do you Cure It?

Get this having dry skin is a big pain. Not that having any kind of skin problem isn't and here I will try to help you with some tips and tricks that may help dry facial skin.
Dry skin tends to have very small pores and most people are under the impression that using a scrub is a bad idea. That is just not so. It is very important to get the dead dry skin off .

Using and mild scrub will remover dead cells and flaky skin leaving new skin on the surface. This is when you need to deep condition your skin. Don't just rub your moisturizer on actually rub it in. If you can find a facial massager and work that moisturizer in that is great. This should be done 2 to 3 times a week. Use a heavy moisturizer at night after using a daily cleanser and toner. Why toner? It's no just for oily skin toner is a cleanser that will finish getting all the dirt and oil off your skin. It will if you use the right type open pores so you can basically shove the moisturizer into your deep tissues.
Always use an SPF of some type. I don't care what those tree huggers say about sun screen. There are many natural sun screens available and you will pay a higher price if that makes you more comfortable. Just don't go without it on your face ever.
Use your moisturizer according to directions and always spot test any new products on the inside of your arm before applying to you face. You may have an allergy you never knew you had and this is a much better place to have it than on your face. 
If you keep having problems with your skin and can't seem to get any results you may need to drink more water. Yes I know  water yuk. add some lemon or a table spoon of fruit juice and make it taste better. Just make sure you get lots of it.
Vitamin E must come with vitamin C to be effective in a lotion so check to be sure there are both.
Grape seed oil and olive oil are both great for facial tissues as they are loaded with antioxidants and help fight free radicals. They also are very softening. We all want our cheeks to be baby butt soft and these are just a few ways to concur dry skin. Don't be afraid to hydrate that skin or scrub it. No point in trying to put moisture in if your have dried up skin over top all the little pores that need to have moisture. You must clean them out fully before the moisture will ever get in.
Try our Rose Hip Oil Moisturizer or Daily Facial moisturizer for after scrubbing.
