    Wow! After reading a bunch of posts on Marie’s awesome foundation … particularly the powder, that’s what I’m dying to try … I’m gung ho to give it a shot. But … I think I’ve searched on all the usual suppliers’ websites for some of these crazy ingredients! Help please! Where can I find sericite mica, magnesium stearate and boron nitride? Thank you! *Insert soon-to-be-foundationed smiley face*

    I ordered all of those ingredients on http://www.tkbtrading.com . If you are outside the US, you can order from their other site http://www.howtomakecosmetics.com , according to their website. I hope this helps.😀

    Saffire Blue has all those things in Canada! Honestly, save the boron nitride for the eye shadow base; I almost never include it in the foundation, and at the price we have to pay for it in Canada, it’s not worth it.

    Otherwise, TKB in the USA is great! And if you need lots of makeup stuff it’s actually cheaper to buy from them, even with shipping & the exchange rate.

    I started a post here yesterday but must have not entered it correctly.
    Here’s my small list of suppliers for anyone looking to compare prices or products from their own list.

    TBK Of course. They’ve been around for years and do have all the powders. And carmine which is so hard to find.

    Soapgoods.com
    Essential oils. You can usually buy small .06 sizes to test before investing in larger bottles. Good prices. Oils, butters, pigments, clays and general ingredients.

    CamdenGray.com
    My favorite but still hard to swallow their shipping cost. In my opinion, great quality eo’s and fairly priced, oils, butters and such. Usually when I compare shopping lists side by side, shipping included, this company comes in the winner, considering the four free samples you can choose. Big samples. I’m holding a free 1/2oz bottle of seabuckthorn pulp Co2 extract.

    Everyone knows Brambleberry. I only buy extracts from them but they carry darn near everything.

    PipingRock.com
    It’s a health food type site but lots of BOGO sales on essential oils. There’s always sales and you can buy some clays and other oils. It’s a great way to get your eo stash built, especially if you buy with a friend.

    Thanks!! I was pretty sure I looked for these on Saffire Blue’s site. I must have entered something incorrectly. I’m THRILLED that they have it … they’re right down the 401 from me … Woot Woot!! I see they also carry cera bellina, my only missing ingredient from today’s post of the Protective Pooch Paw Wax. I’m doing my happy dance!

    Foundation is on my list. Just got my oxides. Waiting for my lovely sericite, and some other goodies. But yeah, I’m making other goodies while waiting- chocolate lip butter for example. Lol

    And yes, I am pale. Way pale. Lol

    Good morning ladies. I just finished up a 9-day visit from my awesome sister from the north, who in addition to MUCH SHOPPING, assisted me with so many things, including a thorough reorganization and inventory of all my oils and ingredients on my soaping/making shelves! WOW! I now know WHAT I have (who knew??) and HOW MUCH I have! I’m basking in the glory of my long list of ingredients, just waiting to be entered onto an Excel spreadsheet. Ahhhh …. it feels so good to know I could make any number of products on a whim! You guys get that.
    Question: I’m having a tough time finding the teeny tiny set of measuring spoons. Any suggestions where I could buy those in Canada? I’ve tried kitchen stores here there and everywhere, and all I can come up with are the little ones that are a “pinch” and a “smidgen”, etc. I need the 1/32, 1/64, etc. The REAL DEAL! Thanks in advance for access to your collective wisdom and experience, oh wise and experienced colleagues ….
    The SUN is out today for the first time in what feels like FOREVER! WOO HOO!!! Happy Monday!

    Wendy, Happy Monday! The sun is out here too! Woo hoo!

    A couple of weeks ago I did a reorg of all my supplies and, yes, it feels great to have it all categorized and in order. Have a great week!

    Thanks Belinda. I searched Amazon high and low and did not come up with any spoons that actually give me the proper measurements in teeny tiny increments. Grrr. You had better luck in the US site, I guess. The search continues ….

    That is strange! I wonder why your search engine is different?!? I just did a Google search, typing in “pinch smidgen drop” and lots of different sets come up and not just in Amazon.

    This one looks to be in your neck of the woods.

    I’ve never seen a set that actually had the numerical measurements on there, just the dash, smidgen, pinch, etc… I had to have a piece of paper with the conversions written on there so I knew which one was which!

    THANK YOU! That’s just what I needed! I actually did find some spoons with the proper measurements on them on the American site, but … a little pricey! Your info sheet saves the day. Have a super day, Belinda!

    Yes, I saw those too! They were too cha-chingy for me, not when the others are around $5. Glad I could help!😀 You have a great day too!

    Yup. I have the word ones, then taped the amount on back. Simple easy.
