😀 Are all ingredients ending in ‘cone’ some form of silicone?

Janessa, usually yes, if an ingredient ends in cone you can be pretty sure it’s a silicone. 🙂

Okie! This smiley 😀 looks so silly! Thanks, Gio! When I was at animation camp, I made my final project based on you! It’s about an Italian beauty blogger and I tried to paint you. It’s a paper cut-out animation and I have to send you it sometime. I was wondering if you’d add the music for me? I have some weird music to it but I don’t know if you’ll like it.

Did you? Wow, I’m so honoured, that’s so sweet of you! 😳 Thanks hun, I would love to see it and no worries about the music. Just add whatever you like, I’m sure I’ll love it.
I would love to add more, but I’m quite speechless now. 😳
