Mineral Makeup and ONATI Skin Care Love

Avocado oilHello Katherine:

I spoke with you about two weeks ago about my problem with all blushes and some makeup turning “orange” on me.  You suggested the Onati Skin Care.  Just wanted to tell you that I’ve used it for one week now and absolutely love it! Nothing feels heavy or greasy on me and I am even using the Calm and Refresh Face Cream during the day.  You would never know that my skin is very oily.  Bought a sample of the Grecian Body Soufflé and use that at night.  After spending hundreds of dollars trying numerous skin care lines, I have finally found the best for me.

Also, just received my samples of your foundation.  You had suggested Vivana and Hannah. Tried Vivana (Dewy) this morning using the dry method and it just looks like my skin but better.  Going to try Hannah tomorrow, although it appears to be darker.  I got all samples in both the Dewy and the Velvet.  I also ordered Amara based upon the description on website but it looks way too gold/yellow for me, but I will try it also.  Also bought a sample of the Satin Rose Mineral Veil.

Also ordered the blushes that were recommended on your website for skin that turns orange.  The Lilac is extremely light, so I’m not sure about that.  The Vintage is pretty but still light, but a very pretty color when I apply more.  The other three I have not tried because I think it best to try it when using your foundation. (Lilac was used on my Bare Minerals).

I feel like a kid in a candy store trying all my new makeup!  Anxious to try your eye colors too!

Well, just wanted to let you know my experience so far.  Have a good day.

Mineral Makeup Love and Brow Filler Using Eyeshadow


I’m a VERY satisfied customer and have been using your products for about 6 months.  I have your blush in Blossom, foundation in Fiorella, bronzer in Sunny and a Cameo eyeshadow.  I’d like to purchase some other shades of eyeshadow to use as eyeliner, and I’m also wondering about getting a powder to use to fill in my brows.  I have dark blonde/light brown hair, fair skin, and dark brown eyes, and have used taupe colored pencils to color my brows in the past.  I’m not a fan of some of the additives in those pencils, and I’m hoping that there is a Sterling Minerals powder that will work.  Could you advise me on shades of eyeliner or foundation that might work so I can purchase samples?  I don’t really know where to start.

OUR ANSWER: Cocoa is an excellent brow filler and all of our eye colors have a detailed description with tips and suggestions also on how to use them.

I’m so glad I found your products.  I’m 26 and for the first time since being a child, my skin looks awesome.  It’s equal parts oil cleansing method, oil as a moisturizer, cutting out dairy and your wonderful products.  I’ve finally found a system of products and methods that makes me look glowy and wonderful.  Thank you! I had tried other mineral makeup in the past and I almost scratched my face off.  I thought it was in my head since all I heard were wonderful things about how mineral makeup would look flawless and help the condition of your skin.  But it just looked chalky and awful and made my face burn. Your products never look chalky.  I can see my freckles, but not my imperfections.  It’s awesome and I’ll be a customer for life.  I’m eager to expand my collection of eyeshadows and blushes…maybe even some lip colors. :)

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

I received this photo and this cute, brief note  from a long time customer, Korrena P. of Blandford, Massachusetts.  We love photos by the way, so if you want to share your “before and after” or just a photo of yourself using our products, share away.

Hi Katherine,

After talking to you I thought I’d send you another pic :) This is me and my sister at her wedding.  My sister is beautiful!!  She had her makeup professionally done for her big day.  I wore your Sterling Minerals makeup.  As we discussed, your makeup looks like a second skin…not makeup.  It’s just one of the things I love about your products.  I also love the fact that it soothes my rosacea and itching.  I was able to be in my sisters wedding party and not worry that my makeup would irritate my skin.  Your makeup has awesome coverage and staying power as well.  (I have hyperpigmentation as well as red around my nose & on my cheeks) Sterling Minerals lasted all day and into the night…I never had to touch it up.  I was able to laugh and dance the night away with my family…never worrying once about my makeup.  Thank you again for this product!!!!

I thought you would like to see who & what I was talking about :) …and NO she wasn’t wearing your makeup at the time. It is sooooo obvious!!!  Her hairdresser talked her into a new makeup for the day.  I told her I was using my trusted Sterling minerals.  Again…your products are amazing!!!

Korrena :)

Sterling Minerals Review By Two New Customers

Love hearing from our customers of all ages. 
And as we mature, living life with a sense of humor is of the utmost importance.  LOVE it.

I received my order on Saturday and was very excited to try it.

I was using Everyday Minerals, which was good but still looked a little chalky on the skin and gave me lines under my eyes where it would settle in, which at 24, is a little…annoying.  I tried your foundation today and it is FANTASTIC!  I am excited to continue using my sample and order a full size.  It did not settle or make my skin look too dry…it made it look like skin!  ha ha.  Thank you so much!

My Skin Has Not Looked This Well-Made Up In YEARS.

Sun damage big-time.  Creases where most my age are maybe getting fine-lines.  Make-up application moron: too much, applied too fast.  With 50 year-old vision.  Rosacea.  Let’s just say the light doesn’t always play to the benefit of my features (wink*wink) and I’m like Dolly Parton: less is more but more is better.  When mineral make up first started showing up and I tried ‘Larenim’, it seemed to me application was key.  I was a mineral make-up mess.  LOVED the fact that it’d actually be good for my skin, but could never get the hang of it.  My fave L’oreal eventually sinks in to my creases.  On utube there was a woman who showed how to apply the foundation ‘wet’ and had a link to Sterling Minerals.

LOVE THE SAMPLES.  Had you not had samples available I’d have skipped this amazing stuff and missed out on getting to feel I really do look my best.  Cannot believe I applied it myself, it’s beautiful!  Really glad I came upon that utube clip.  A heartfelt Thank You for your wonderful product.

Sterling Minerals Customer Review with Beauty Tip


I would like to share with you the joys of having discovered Sterling Minerals Products as well as the superb customer service.  Your mineral foundation truly is the best one on the market.  I have tried BE, Everday Minerals, Jane Iredale, Pur, CoverFx and numerous others.  I have a drawer dedicated to mineral foundations that either oxidized, irritated, or exacerbated my sensitive skin.  I am cursed with eczema, mild rosacea and psoriasis.  The latter being the most difficult to treat, soothe and conceal.  Sterling minerals soothes and beautifully conceals my psoriasis and I don’t have to avoid going out in public anymore during a flare up.  You personally spoke with me at length about using organic jojoba oil on the psoriasis patches.  I used your Onati toner on those areas, applying it gently and while still damp applying the jojoba oil on top.  I achieved spectacular results in about 4 days using the Onati toner, jojoba oil and gentle exfoliation every other night.  The scaling was significantly reduced by 90%, and the angry red inflamed skin had drastically diminished.

Due to the flare up and lack of any foundation that would perform well and not further irritate my skin I had to miss a girls luncheon.  I was able to attend the following week after following your advice.  My friends thought I may have exaggerated the severity of my flare up and used it as an excuse not to go the prior week because as they said “you are not even wearing any foundation and your skin looks over fabulous”.  I was wearing my Sterling Minerals foundation!

I have found that I can even put a dab of the jojoba oil over the the foundation during the day to keep the dry patches moist and it does not seem to affect the foundation finish.  Also, your suggestion of using Fiorella to neutralize the mild rosacea on my cheeks worked beautifully.  No more using the green primer under my foundation that left a Herman Munster grey pallor on my skin.

Thank you so very much for an outstanding product that is soothing, performs superbly, is very reasonably priced and to boot is animal cruelty free.  I am forever grateful to Sterling Minerals!

ONATI Skin Care For Sunburn

We simply love our skincare line ONATI, for all the wonderful things it does for the face and body.  Soothes, cools, moisturizes, smooths, etc, skin beautifully that is exposed to the elements each and every day.

Katherine recently heard from a customer, Ladonna S. Boise, Idaho, on her personal facebook page, that she has found ONATI to be exceptional at bringing relief to her sunburned skin.  This was a pleasant surprise to know this customer had the opportunity to experience our products in an extreme scenario.  Sunburn is never fun and should be avoided when at all possible, but thankfully ONATI seems to have come to the rescue for this customer.

Along with the many botanical ingredients we incorporate into our formulas for creating healthier skin, each and every product we offer is also formulated with Aloe Vera Juice, an extract of the Aloe plant known for it’s ability to soothe sunburn pain fast.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to try our ONATI Skin Care line, then by all means take a look at the different products we have to offer in skincare.  To which the line includes our Grecian Secret Body Souffle which can also be used head to toe, including the face.  Our products are never heavy, are readily absorbed, amazingly soothing for many inflammations and irritations of the skin, leaving skin feeling incredibly soft and looking rejuvenated without any greasy after feel.

If you have had any exceptional or surprising results using our skincare or mineral makeup products, we would love to hear from you too.  Just drop us a line so we can share your story with others who are part of the Sterling Minerals Family.

Thank you!

Returning Customer with More Good News

Hi Katherine,

I just had to write this after what happened to me an hour ago.  I was cleaning my bathroom, I do all my cleaning late at night into early morning because I work 6 nights a week answering emergency phone calls for a vet hospital in exchange for a break in my rent.   I ran across an unopened BufPuf and thought I would wash my face and use this because I have enlarged pores on my nose and chin and thought maybe this would help get them a little clearer.

I must have really gone at it because when I sat down to put on my moisturizer by the time I got to the desk where the mirror is, my face was BURNING.  Especially my cheeks where I am much drier.  I tried some aloe vera gel, which helped for about 5 minutes and then it began burning again, I suddenly remembered I had some Evening Rose Veil in a sample from last year which I had used quite a few times at night when I had some break outs.  Since your samples are so generous I had a bit left, also because with your products you don’t need much.  I grabbed my chubby blender brush, put some Evening Veil in a saucer and started patting it on my face, within a few minutes the burning had completely stopped and the redness started dissipating. Which reminded me of two things, the last time I used a BE mineral brush, it stung, literally stung( it felt like needles) when I applied my foundation.  I had washed my chubby blender that morning and it was still damp, not wet-wet but not completely dry either, but I got it anyway and instead of spraying it like I usually do I just used it damp and it worked great as usual.  I tossed the BE just in case I grabbed it again by mistake.

The second thing is your chubby brush feels like velvet against the skin.  I have no idea what it is made from but eventually I want to get one of each type.  But I wanted to let you know about this, if anyone has any irritation from anything, they really should try the Evening Veil, it has a cooling sensation when you apply it and it stays.  And you can apply your regular foundation on top of it.  Would you do a post, if you haven’t already about your brushes?  I am going to look and see if you already have done so and I missed it, but I keep all your newsletters in a file in my email program so I can reference back to them when I need to.   I think the brush you use is so important, some don’t carry the foundation as well, some can be irritating, of course everyone is different and what works for one person may not for the next but if all your brushes are like the chubby, wow, like I said, velvet is the word that comes to mind!

I also wanted to tell you that because of you I am going to be the Meet and Greet person for the animal rescue I volunteer with ( Friends of Noah 501 c3) at 1PM today.  We are having a Grand Reopening after having to close down last fall due to lack of funding.  The woman who was supposed to do it has a problem with her back and is unable to attend, two weeks ago I would have said no when they asked me, but now that I have foundation (thanks to your generosity) and know I will make a good appearance I agreed to do it.  We are having a Dog Easter Egg Hunt for a fundraiser, with a Blessing of the Animals, and this will make all the difference in getting some much needed cash to buy food, litter and be able to pay for spays and neuters and vaccines.  So God bless you!

Yours Truly,

Kathie B.
