Tired Of Same Old, Same Old In Relation To Your Mineral Eyeshadow Creativity?
Based on popular demand and receiving emails from our ladies wishing for us to give them a duplication of an eye shadow look they found and absolutely LOVE, we decided to create this new category on our website for finding the neatest to simplest, to creative to indulgent, to complicated to traditional, which translates to endless ways of using your old eye shadows to trying some new ones.
Most often, women are reticent to try new mineral eye shadow shades because the color seems out of their scope of ideas or due to keeping it simple they stick with safe and easy.
Break From The Boredom
Even Katherine (mineral makeup maven extraordinaire) has stuck with simple until recently! She decided to push herself and to invite other ladies to break from tradition and boredom and shake things up a bit. She personally has discovered some shades that she would not have dreamed of using in the past, only to now realize she has been missing out on enjoying truly amazing eyeshadow finishes.
That is why she has added to her categories in her Education section, Mineral Eyeshadow Tutorials. This will be updated regularly and will provide extensive color and creative tutorials on recreating a mineral eyeshadow look you wish to try. Plus, we will even provide the mineral eyeshadow shades you’ll require to duplicate the eyeshadow look you want to achieve.
For more information on how we can help you find your look beyond what we already have created in our collection, check out Creating Mineral Makeup Eye Shadow Looks at our website.
Keeping You Up To Date In Case You Missed It
We are always striving to keep our customers up to date when we learn about the latest info so that you, our valued customers can also be well informed when it comes to your skin health through the use of your mineral makeup products and your skincare.
This info is so important, we will also post this same article in our Skin Care Guide since we have customers that read one or the other. Yet, we apologize for duplication if you should be a subscriber to both.
Important Mineral Makeup Update In Regard To Sunscreen Regulations
We have updated our “What Is The SPF Of Our Mineral Makeup” page with the latest information as it pertains to new FDA regulations. You’ll also learn about what those Skin Cancer Foundation Seals Of Endorsement really mean! So click on the link in the text above to learn more.
Our education articles are located in the bottom left corner of our website with easy to navigate titles for giving you fast answers to your questions and we are adding new articles and updating old ones on a regular basis. No more endless searching through past blog posts.
The New Links Below Will Be Your Guide
Or you can use our convenient “Search” window at the top right of our website and simply type in your questions.
Two tabs will appear: Products / News & Information in upper left corner. You then click on which tab you prefer as it pertains to your search.
Missing Out On Updates
We have recently learned from some of our customers that they are missing out on our website updates including new products being added and new product photography be implemented.
This is happening because you are holding onto a “cached” version of the site. We all love to add websites to our favorites for immediate retrieval, but unfortunately, this is also why you are missing our product updates which will also include promotions that we will place up front and center on our slide show as you enter the site.
Example: We updated all of our mineral makeup product photography with true to life color and they turned out incredible, yet some customers don’t see them and only the old pink framed products because they have stored the individual pages for quick return to shopping in the future.
To Fix: Simply dump the old version from your favorites, organically Google Sterling Minerals and click thru on the main page link then follow through to your product pages and voila, you should now be seeing the latest and greatest updates.
IMPORTANT TIDBIT FOR MOBILE PHONE USERS: If you are shopping using your mobile phone, unless you switch to “FULL SITE” mode (located at the bottom of the web page on your phone), you too may miss out on our promos and latest updates. So when you can, be sure to at least view us in Full Site Mode for the best possible experience.
Thank you and we hope this latest information continues to serve your needs.
Lower Shipping Charges Now Offered For International Customers
We are elated and jumping for joy at the good news put out by our shipping carrier for shipping packages overseas and to our neighbors in the north and in the south, especially since past and future customers have asked us if we can ship out first class mail to their country. Up until today that answer has always been, sadly….no!
However, USPS just today, has implemented First Class Mail into their shipping module for our international customers. So now when you shop with us, First Class Mail will be offered as a selection option for your to receive your packages at an incredibly reduced rate.
Samples and smaller orders no longer have to ship at the higher rates of priority mail if you so choose. For a complete shipping breakdown you can view our updated shipping chart on our Shipping Policies page.
This Rate Does Lose Shipping Benefits Afforded By Choosing Priority Mail
Please be aware that there are some ordering parameters to choose this method:
- There is no tracking available
- There is no insurance available
- Your package will take longer to arrive
- This is a method that is chosen at your own risk against loss, damage or theft
- Your order also cannot exceed a minimum dollar amount to minimize loss prevention
So if you have confidence as we do in the USPS, then we are pleased to now be able to make available to those who wish to choose First Class Shipping Method. We hope this makes all of those loyal customers we have overseas as happy as we are with this new USPS Shipping offer. We are also looking forward to our many future international customers finally being able to get our products that found the shipping rates a hindrance in the past.
Our sincerest Thanks to USPS for taking our repeated requests and finally implementing this service into their shipping module.
We are standing by to take your order. WOOT!
New Addition To Our Mineral Eye Shadow Collection
We added a very sultry, semi matte basic black to our ever growing array of eye colors upon repeated customer request. We have suitably named it “Drama Queen“. So befitting of those that have intensity, are confident, bold, live life with exhilarating enthusiasm, and stand out above the crowd.
Rich and pure in pigment, this eyeshadow shade is perfect for a creating a look that commands attention. Applied with moisture, this also dupes as an eyeliner for defining the eyes and can be used with every shade in our eyeshadow color palette. Staying power is excellent, too!
Hey now… don’t despair… for those that are demure and soft spoken, they too can enjoy this eyeshadow color since as always with all of our shades, it can be blended down to soft, subtle and sexy, or a smoky look for that enchanted evening, or softer yet for daytime wear. Shaping the eye with Drama Queen, combined with “Crystal“ becomes bold, beautiful glamor, especially when creating a cat eye for dramatic effect. Or combine with any other color one might enjoy just as an accent, the look will be nothing short of breathtaking.
Beauty Tip: Just remember, applied with a damp brush (foiling) creates a super intense shade, and applied dry will create softness and subtle color. Careful though, just a “dot” will do you.
Mothers Day is rapidly approaching and for many they will be celebrating the joy and love with beloved mom’s everywhere. Mom’s are great for cheering us on, picking us up and dusting us off, making lemonade out of lemons and showing us the way toward a better future, perhaps better than their own, always encouraging us to strive for the moon and stars.
We all love our moms for different reasons, but whatever the reason is, it will be very special in the heart of her child and the life they shared. No matter our age, only how moms are perceived is what evolves over time. From mom holding our hand as little girls, to us taking care of them through their senior years.
Some of us even have a similar relationship with a Grandma, a woman that puts the icing on top of everything we do. We are spoiled and pampered by our grandmas as though it is the assignment they have been given after raising the mother that raised us.
Grandmas have that special place in our hearts and with a simple hug, the outside world melts away. Whatever the memories of these wonderful ladies who have loved and shared with us all things to make us better women, it is only fitting that Mothers Day was created just for them.
With Moms in mind, we would like to remind our wonderful ladies about our Gift Certificates we now offer, so picking and choosing what your mom would like is no longer an effort in futility, trying to decide what is best for the woman who has everything it seems. A gift certificate is the most simple, perfect gift, and is the best way to introduce mom to mineral makeup and refreshing organic skincare. Plus, it offers her the opportunity to try something new and fun without the headache of walking the mall floor. They are located at the top of our website next to your account sign in and wishlists, or you can CLICK HERE for previewing how to purchase and checkout.
Wishing moms everywhere a beautiful and happy Mothers Day. And remember, someday WE WILL all eventually quote our mother!
We wanted to bring you current on the latest USPS shipping rates.
USPS has increased shipping rates across the board as of today. We knew it was coming, however we had no idea on the details of the increases and what features would be added or eliminated.
Despite the increases, minor for domestic, greater for international shipments, there is a bright spot for those that used to select the “uninsured international flat rate box” option to save some money on costs.
USPS has recreated this to now offer tracking capability, yet this method is still uninsured. Although the rate is higher to choose this selection, it now comes with delivery confirmation so smaller orders can now be located easier. And with the tracking number, your package can be readily viewed online to see where your package is at any given time, including checking to see if there had been a delivery attempt that you may have missed.
We also still offer the special rate for international shipments when meeting the required dollar total so we may continue to assist you with some of these shipping costs.
Even though all of us are faced with the rising cost of freight across the board these days, we have found that USPS still provides the quickest and best service over all other shippers for you to receive your products ASAP. To receive similar rates with other shippers, we are looking at longer ship times for more money. To even get close to the USPS rate you would have on average a week wait plus processing time, since it would have to go via ground and there is zero savings to you.
We always strive for the best in all customer service, mineral makeup and skincare products, including offering the best method to get you your products safely and without delays.
Thank you so much for your loyal patronage and understanding this is beyond our control.
