    Default Indian Earth & Rubiglo - does anyone use it?

    Quite a few years ago, a friend who is a make-up artist for top fashion shoots introduced me to an amazing product which I have never been without since. He pointed out to me that I have sallow skin with a lot of green undertones, and that during the winter months I should do something to enhance my coloring. He used the stuff on lots of top models - no matter their skin tones because it was so versatile and natural looking. He remarked that Sophia Loren always used brown around her eyelids (I never forgot that remark since I have always thought La Loren was one of the most beautiful women in the world)

    He then presented me with a little brown clay urn, filled with a brownish powder - and showed me how I could use it as eyeshadow, lip color and blush, among other uses.
    It was called "Indian Earth" and is manufactured by a company in CA.

    I used it for a long time - and then discovered that another company had picked up on the idea and was manufacturing a similar powder - also in a little urn - a company called Rubiglo.

    I had the first bottle for ages - and also have the Rubiglo . I am not much of a makeup wearer and have never used foundation, and rarely use shadow in colors. Eyeliner, and a bit of gloss works for me since lipsticks on me are disasters.

    It gives you a wonderful healthy tan/glow which is amazing and lasts all day and evening.
    It is also very inexpensive!

    I have no clue where you can buy it in stores these days - I think the last time I found it was in a Walgreens Drugstore - and I won't need new urns for at least another 20 years , but thought I'd share this. I see that both companies have other items these days but I have only used the urn powder.

    That looks interesting. I may have to try some.

    omigosh I remember that stuff! I had a jar of it in the 70s.

    My complexion is cool and pink-toned though, it looked awful on me. It reminds me of Bare Escentuals "Warmth" face color, I can't wear that either.

    Hi Dulci - I think they have a pinker one these days - or at least Rubiglo does. Since I'm basically beige/green sallow - I had a hard time in the past finding stuff that wasn't pink

    I've gone through many pots of both Indian Earth and Rubiglo over the years. Loved those earthy little pots. I agree Bare Escentuals Warmth All Over Face Color is very much like Indian Earth. It's a summer staple for me. I sort of wished I would have kept my last pot of Indian Earth though - it was more fun getting the powder off the cork than the top of a jar.

    That's me too. I remember being fascinated by the little terracotta pot, and I think it had a cork in it, and you could use it for everything - eyes, face, lips. The whole idea of it really appealed ot me, but on my fair skin it looked orange. (I can't wear that "Warmth" either, though I like the Mineral Veil very much.)

    OMG!!! I looooooooooove Rubiglow & will be lost unless I can find more. I am just about to run out, went online to see if I can find it and found this thread/page. It's only the best thing since sliced bread in my book! I too do not wear foundation due to my very oily skin so this product rules!!! I still have the bottle with the cork, too! Now on to procure the magic that is Rubiglow!!

    WOO HOO!! You rock, Socalwoman! Thanx for the hook up. I just happen to be a fan of online shopping ;-)
    I must tell you, I am completely jealous of you, as I can only assume you live in So Cali. Your music scene is
    right up there with ours here in the NJ/NYC area, if not better. Big KMK fan here!
    Thanx again & have a faboo weekend :-)

    You can also get Indian Earth at Vermont Country Store (vermontcountrystore.com they have hard to find perfumes too). I used to use it in the 80's, but since I wear sunscreen all the time I am too pale for this now.
