i haven't actually done it myself yet, but i did recently purchase some large empty mixing jars for that purpose. may be a silly question, but have you tried putting in the 2 colors into a large mixing jar w/lid and just shaking it up? i bought my jars very cheaply at www.aubreynicole.com (granted, i also bought makeup, so it was worth the shipping). depending on the jar size (i think they offer 4 sizes?) they were about 1/3 to 1/5 of the cost of a similar jar ($4) at Sephora.

yea i tried that. soooooo not working. the powder just sits there. I actually used a toothpick and mixed it manually but it still seem to get streaks of the two colours sometimes. It looks as if they two shades are mixed properly in the container, but if you take out a small sample and smear it, you can see the different shades distinctly.

You can buy a mini-grinder from Monave for $15 (see the link below); I've also seen these on eBay--or maybe you have a small (clean) coffee grinder sitting unused at home...
