A little Blog Special and some Clearance Items added!

Our Blog Special this week is just a little one in honor of Earth Day, April 22. Check it out HERE. These were so popular last year (and we are still getting tons of hits for it at our old Ecrater store!) we thought we'd bring them back for this special occasion.

As indicated in the listing, you must spend $15 or more (NOT including Shipping & Handling for my International Customers) to qualify and, of course, go to the "secret link" above to add to your cart.

Also, FYI, we have added some "Oops" foundations; as we made up more batches the last couple of months, not every batch passes our comparison swatch test and/or we occasionally read the recipe wrong or reach for the wrong ingredient; but instead of throwing away the mistaken batches (which would be totally wasteful and NOT in the spirit of Earth Day, lol!) we thought we'd make these available to you for a very inexpensive price.

If you have already sampled our foundations, you might also find these "Oops" batches might be somewhat similar as minerals can be pretty forgiving; they just don't meet our specifications (either too neutral or peachy or golden to our eye) and cannot sell them as the original color.

F2: Most similar to Grace 4.0-4.2 & possibly Kindness. (Medium-Medium Tan Golden Olive tones)
F3: Most similar to Faith 4.2 (Golden Peachy tones)
F4: Most similar to Hope 3.0 (Yellow Olive, more neutral than the original)
F5: Most similar to Peace 3.5 (Neutral Olive, more neutral than the original)

Again, please note the "most similar" description noted above. We cannot guarantee (and cannot take returns) these colors will work for you if you already wear those; they just fall in close to the same family.

If you find you might need to correct them, you can use our Color Correctors/Concealers (scroll down to see the different listings) to improve the looks although it may lighten them depending how much you use. As a general rule:

...Pink if you need more of a cool tone...
...Apricot if you need more peachy, or disguising bluish discolorations, like bruises or some under eye circles...
...Yellow if you need more golden, or disguising more purplish discolorations such as under eye circles. Some also recommend to use with blemishes or areas of redness...
...Green if you need to neutralize a cooler, pink tone whether it be foundation or red areas like rosacea...
...Blue if you need to neutralize an overly peachy/orangey foundation. Especially helpful worn underneath base for foundations that seem to turn orange during the day...
...Lavender if you need to tone down an overly golden/sallow skintone or foundation...

Hope that helps out! Thank you all!

Less than a week before closing!

Just reminding everyone that our store will be temporarily closing this Thursday, Sept. 8 with the last day to shop on Sept. 7. We have added some new Clearance items such as Grab Bags of the discontinued both sample and full-size of Blush & Eyecolors as well as Blush & Eyecolor bundles. Most of these items are going fast so if you would like to get them act soon! However, you may also risk it and wait to save more as we are going to be issuing a discount code either Sept. 4 or 5, so definitely check back here then. As with our other coupon codes, though, because it is a rather large percentage (more so than any other time we've issued them) this will only be for orders $15 or more, so go ahead and order if yours is less than $15 not including shipping. Our powders and foundations and some of the Clearance items are going pretty fast out of stock though so if you don't want to risk running out of inventory, definitely order soon! We want the last couple days to move
 I had no idea it would be so challenging. You would think that I could just “pick up” where we left off with adorned with Grace, but the market has changed pretty significantly in 10 years! I do not remember having to work so hard making the products and on the website many years ago. The latter has been especially difficulty—but…I think I had a bit of writer’s block when trying to get everything jump started. I realized that in continuing adorned with Grace, I felt important to clarify to myself what adorned with Grace would be. Back then, it started as a creative outlet for me, to make cosmetics for hard-to-match skin tones like mine, and to promote true beauty ideas for a positive influence in the world. All still true, of course! But before I could go any further, I felt impressed to elaborate on our values and mission, so this is what I wrote down last week: *To be a light to those in darkness who are held down from their true identity in God. *To unite women and model how we can

No Blog Special, BUT...a Special Article!

Believe It or Not: Words & Their Effect When I was a child, there was a show that my family and I loved to watch called, “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” where it showcased scientific marvels, interesting facts in history, and, sometimes, just fun, outrageous stories to excite and amaze its viewers. Well, I recently read an article that I thought would have fit right in with this show called, “Miraculous Messages from Water: How Water Reflects Our Consciousness.” It’s about an experiment conducted by a Japanese scientist where he tested to see the effect of words/thoughts on water. Sounding crazy already, lol? Well, read on as it gets even more interesting as he’s got pictures to prove it… To give a VERY general overview of his experiment ( *Click here to see the entire article ), he has done experiments on the effect of spoken AND written words on water as well as music. I’m just going to share with you some of the pictures of what I found most interesting of the resulting images
