I just to let you know that just Love Mineral Silk!
I just had to write you a quick note to tell you I'm in awe of your mineral foundation. I have tried SO many different brands it makes my head spin, but NONE have given me the beautiful silky finish and softened my fine lines like yours does. I love the feel of my skin when I put on the foundation. I've only ordered the sample packs so far and just from that I can see how incredible your foundation is. I'm having fun deciding on which color matches my slightly tan summer skin, so I can order a full size. I have half a container of another brand and started searching for something else because they just increased their price and now it's out of my price range. Now I'm glad they did that, otherwise I probably wouldn't have found you. Also, I don't even want to finish the container because yours is so much better. Thank you for all your hard work, you made a happy customer, Gail

Looks Good even the Next Morning!
2, April, 2012
De, I've been ordering your makeup for years and it's the best! I tell everyone who is using mineral makeup to try your products - especially those who are having skin issues with it -- I'm like it's the bismuth -- try mineral silks. I love seeing the new colors -- maybe some more matte eye shadows for us older folks? a magical color to hide eye lid droop, perhaps? I dated a guy for six months who - until I said I needed time to 'fix my face' thought I didn't wear any makeup at all. Hey this stuff still looks good in the morning -- just sayin!!
Your customer service is beyond excellent.
Love your products!!

Lip Yummies are really Yummy!
28, April, 2012
De, As we were driving thru Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, I introduced my husband to Lip Yummies Lemon flavor. Not only were our lips saved from being chapped or plainly just dried out, My husband loved the scent and taste. We used it so much I have just re-ordered two more. One for him and one for me. Thanks for a great product.

Greetings from the UK Mineral Silk fans!
11 July, 2011
Since receiving my Mineral Silk foundations 2 months ago I am now an absolute devotee and will be telling all of my friends here in the UK that use Bare Minerals to move on to Mineral Silk. I never used to have bad skin but after a few years of working abroad in Africa and Italy in the hot sun it caused damage to my sensitive pale skin and 3 months after I returned to Britain I started having breakouts which erupted into acne and my face and body suddenly became sensitive to almost every product under the sun! (Sorry no pun intended.) Bare Minerals seemed to be working for me, it covered my spots without too much clogging and I thought that the minerals would be helping it until I read up about bismuth oxychloride (hissss!!) I now steer clear of any product with this ingredient in and in 2 months have not had one of the hideous monster on my face that would pop up every other week especially around my time of the month.
So thank you for making a product that is clean, healing and works! Its so hard to know what you're buying these days when it comes to ingredients. I have read loads of horror stories now about people reacting to skincare and cosmetics products and it has really opened my eyes to the evil in skin care and cosmetics companies - especially commercial household names that are not looking after their customers best interests and include toxic chemicals and damaging ingredients just because they are cheap and easily available. De you are the opposite of all this and on behalf of Mineral Silk users WORLWIDE - we LOVE you xxxx

Calming Skin Care - Great Minerals!
I just wanted to let you know that I received my order of skin care products today and used them for the first time tonight. What a joy! For the first
time in ages, and I'm 63, my face feels calm. That may sound funny, but that's the word I would use to describe the absence of prickling and itching
that so many moisturizers cause. It's like my face said, "Ahh, that's better". I searched the web to find mineral foundations w/o bismuth, tried
some of your samples and liked them very much. But the Soothing Milk Cleanser, repair serum and Hibiscus and Rosehip lotion have made me a fan
forever! Thank you, also, for the very competitive pricing. I've used Jane Iredale and Bare Escentuals. They are very fine products, but the one is
too expensive and the other has bismuth which makes my skin prickle when I get warm. Your minerals do just as fine a job, don't irritate and are very
As I searched your site I learned that you have recently lost your husband.
Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss and my admiration for the
way you have continued with your business. That takes a great deal of
courage and strength. If you will allow me, I would like to pray for you
and your family.
BEST Makeup Award goes to Mineral Silk!
You have GREAT products! With sensitive skin, Mineral Makeup is by far the best decision I've made but I've tried a number of different brands and can never seem to get the color just right. It's been nearly impossible finding the shade that really works well with my skin -- too yellow, too light, doesn't look natural, too "shiny", etc, etc. So after receiving your samples, I actually combined two of your shades and it's like a second skin. Offering one of each of the "tones" is absolutely the best idea because I would have never picked the shade(s) that actually work. So it worked out perfectly. As far as your "Eraser" product, that stuff is incredible. I honestly have never tried a product that really (and truly) does what it says...but that stuff will cover (nearly) anything! Incredible! And De, thanks for having incredible customer service. Believe me, it's a rarity nowadays and I'm the type to frequent a site or purchase exclusively just for great customer service. Needless to say, I'll be back.....for the products and for the service! Testimonial By: Heather

I just to let you know that just Love Mineral Silk!
I am 72 and have used not a lot but several different kinds of make up. And they all felt like grit and junk on my face. But not Mineral Silk! You do not feel anything. It is just great. The best there is. Thank you. Louella

I wanted to let you know how good your mineral silk foundation is under challenging circumstances. This past fall I had the common fortune of being diagnosed with breast cancer - caught early, small, type 1, etc., so no worries. But I decided to throw everything, including the kitchen sink, at it. And that included chemotherapy. Four rounds and I shaved my head within two weeks of round one. Couldn't stand the idea of it falling out strand by strand. Anyway, the challenge I speak of is using makeup with no hair. (I tried on a wig and decided to pass.) Without a hairline, any difference in tone between my face and scalp would be obvious. And thanks to your products (Eraser for undereye circles and Hazelnut foundation for my face) you couldn't tell I was wearing makeup. I also used the flat synthetic brush (really nice, by the way) and charcoal eye shadow as a smudged eyeliner to carry me through as my lashes disappeared. I want thank you personally for making my last four months better than they would have been otherwise. I may not have always felt the greatest but I looked as good as possible. And trust me, that meant a LOT! Kind regards, Jane

My Rosacea is so much better!
Friday 29 January, 2010
De: I have to give you another compliment on your products. I had a pretty bad case of rosacea and decided to just start using your products exclusively and not mix them with (other products) to see if that would help my rosacea go away. Guess what! It worked. My rosacea is so much better. I've been using either the jojoba cleanser or milk cleanser with the rose water toner and then using either the vitamin C lotion or hibiscus lotion every day. Plus I have been using the various masques on the weekends. Great results. It's almost hard to believe really. But that is the only thing I have done differently!!! Thanks again!

Lip Yummies Balm
Thursday 28 January, 2010
De, I just wanted to tell you that I did a little experiment with your lip yummies lip balm. (I have the cranberry one). I was using the regular brand chap stick for my lips and it was not working well overnight for my chapped lips. It kind of worked but they would still stay a little chapped. Then the next night I used lip yummies and my lips were 100% better! I went back to chapstick to test it and same bad results. The last few nights I have used lip yummies and they are no longer chapped! You have an excellent product! Thank you! -JenniferTestimonial By: Jennifer
LOVE Mineral Silk
Friday 22 January, 2010
I LOVE Mineral Silk! Since I switched from Bare Minerals, I have had NO breakouts, NO "Rosacea flare-ups," NO itchy eyelids! I've told all my friends who use mineral powders with bismuth oxychloride and many have taken this to heart. MaryTestimonial By: Mary
Love the Compliments!

De, I finally used all of your products as a whole. The only things I did not have is eye shadows (yet). I thus was forced to use some made by a company with the initials BM. It was the first time that my niece has ever spontaneously told me that I looked great. She said I was looking better than I ever have. Thank you sooooo much. It was your products that did it. All except the smile. My other niece has said for years that I have a smile that makes other people smile back at me. Thanks for getting my order out so fast. I am already getting my next order ready for as soon as I get some more money. Happy New Year and may the next year be 10 times as good as this last one was. SusanTestimonial By: Susan

De, Just to let you know, my order arrived late this evening (we have had a big snow storm coming thru the last 2 days, you should be getting it soon in MN). I love these little containers. Are these the ones the eye shadows come in? Or are they bigger than these? I'm going to start playing with them in the morning. Thanks for the VERY quick processing and the shipment. I only placed my order last Thursday and today is Monday. WOW!! I'll get back to you after I've played with them and add my reviews to the others. After just looking at them, I can already tell that they look to be a finer powder than BE and Sheer Cover and much better than e.l.f. and the colors are great. Thanks. SusanTestimonial By: Susan
Thursday 03 December, 2009
Wow - thanks for the informative news email on the ingredients in mineral makeups - as one who is chemically sensitive, this is unbelievable. I found, after many years of using natural based cleansers, that they were actually causing a lot of irritation to my face - even some natural ingredients can be a problem and when I looked at those lists in your email - just how many things could they combine into one product??? Wow. thanks for keeping your product basic - it seems to be doing quite well for me and most can't even tell I where makeup - just get complements on how great my skin looks!

Rosacea and Senstive Skin
Sunday 01 November, 2009
I've been wanting to email you and let you know how much I love my Mineral Silk foundation. I placed my first order last March, and I've been so pleased! I have rosacea and really sensitive skin made worse by menopause, and every liquid foundation I've tried has, at best, worked for only a short time before it starts irritating my face. Mineral Silk actually makes my face feel better! Last June I was thinking about ordering a darker color for the summer, and your email arrived about adding a little blush (Terra Cotta) to a foundation color to match a tan. What a great idea! I did it just like you said in the newsletter, and I'm still using it. I ordered another tiny bottle of Terra Cotta today just to make sure my darker foundation lasts as long as my summer tan. Thanks again for your help, and for all the great information. SheilahTestimonial By: Sheilah
Love the Facial Setting Spritz
Friday 30 October, 2009
Wow, I just got my newest shipment from you in the mail yesterday - and I ALREADY love the facial setting spritz!! Now I don't have to worry about using a moisturizer before I do my makeup - since I have such a horrible problem with over-oily skin. Also, I noticed that when I spritzed again after putting minerals on, how tightly they seemed to form to my face - I NEVER had used a spritz after putting on my minerals. Does it help it stay in place better? It sure feels like it would! I can't believe nobody had ever suggested I try that sooner :) And your blemish buster cleanser - WOW did my face feel SOOOOOOOFT after using that last night. I used my make-up remover from Neutrogena to get all of my make up off first, then I cleansed with that - and then I hydrated with the spritz, and then put some retinol on my face... and I felt like a baby's buttcheek! Lovely! :)Testimonial By: Shelly
Having Fun Playing!
Monday 28 September, 2009
I just want to say that I just tried your makeup not to long ago from a friend. Ive never been the type to wear much makeup, especially since I'm currently located in Iraq. the products I ordered from your website were sent home to wait for me there. I'm 20 years old and still discovering the look I want to achieve. I get use to being a soldier every day, that sometimes it just feels good to put on a little something and feel like a woman. Thank you for the updates and makeup that's actually good for your skin. BrittanyTestimonial By: Brittany
Love the New Lipsticks!
Tuesday 08 September, 2009
Hi, De. The burnt red lipstick is absolutely perfect! It looks like a lip stain, but it is not drying at all. I also love that I can decide either to wear it alone for a natural matte look or dab a lil gloss over it for an evening look. I'm kind of picky with lipsticks, usually nudes are too blah, and reds are too overpowering for me. But this one is PERFECT. The Vitamin C lotion was another great addition. My skin is acne prone and I use peelings to keep it under control. The lotion helps a lot in the healing process and allows me to wear your minerals, because it significantly calms itchy patches. Thank you so much for creating great (and affordable) products. SharonTestimonial By: Sharon
Hard to Find Mineral Color
Tuesday 01 September, 2009
Hi De! I just wanted to write to you and let you know how much I've enjoyed my first shipment of Mineral Silk! I was very skeptical, yet hopeful, when I purchased it. I have a skin tone that is generally ignored by make-up producers since it is not of the same tones as the general public, which is why I prefer loose powder mineral make-up - it's so much easier to customize my shades at home! So far, I think I have found almost the PERFECT mixture of your products to make my face look nice and NOT made up! Perhaps when it's 100% perfect, I'll let you know and you can have a new shade to add to the collection ;)! I couldn't even accomplish this much with other mineral make-up producers (even if I came close, I never could get an exact match no matter what I did... but a lot closer than drug or department store brands!) I love the fact that you sell samples, also! I think that makes the world of difference in SO many ways! I have noticed that I don't suffer break-outs as often, or as severely, although I have noticed that my pore size seems larger than usual on my nose area. :( I wonder if you would ever possibly look into making a healthier version of a facial gel primer or a gel pore minimizer? :) I think that would be fantastic! Thank you so much! ShellyTestimonial By: Shelly

Hi De, My order with the sample kits came the other day. I just wanted to tell you I'm absolutely thrilled with your products! Being in a wheelchair and 55, I'd frankly given up wearing makeup - everything made my skin break out, and it was so hard to coordinate transportation to go buy it. And then everything in the stores was so expensive, and full of toxic chemicals. But I've been trying out your sample products for the last three days. They're actually *soothing* on my face - they feel so nice! And fun to use and experiment with. My son took me shopping this morning - and actually commented on my "beautiful glow". (LOL! He said I looked "healthier than usual" ;-D) But Mineral Silk have given me such a lift! I've just ordered a bunch more items (including the repair serum!) - and a full makeup kit! After playing with the foundation samples in my first order, I discovered the foundation that blends perfectly with my skin is Cashmere. I added the rhubarb blush, because that gives me a nice soft glow - and the Amethyst eyeshadow - which also doubles beautifully as an eyeliner! (First time I've been able to wear eyeliner for years!) Next time, I'm going to try one of the lipsticks. I do my absolute best with totally classic, neutral colors that are not too light or dark. Do you think the "Jen" or the "Kate Hudson" would meet that criteria better? I've also ordered a bunch more eyeshadow samples, and when I settle on the two basic colors I use the most, I'm going to order the eyeshadow kit too. (My goodness! I haven't treated myself this much in YEARS! :-D) I'm on a very tight budget, so I really appreciated the free shipping and the very generous 20% off coupon! Now I don't even feel guilty! Thanks again for adding real fun and beauty and a great big "lift" back into my life! MaryaTestimonial By: Marya

Pumpkin Pie Masque
Monday 29 June, 2009
Thank you for offering such a highly effective product. Best masque I've tried, and I've tried many, many brands and my own beauty recipes! After just one use I've noticed an immediate difference in clarity and brightness to my face. Also, my skin felt so baby soft the next morning with fine lines appearing less visible-what a bonus! Will definitely keep using. Highest recommendation! PS Please do not disclose my full name or e-mail in the review, if you choose to add to your website.. Thank you, ToniTestimonial By: Toni

Spreading the Word!
Thursday 18 June, 2009
De - I am so happy you are working on more eye shadows - I have been waiting! I would love to see more matte colors - especially a medium pink and a plumish-brownish color. The existing pinks are quite light and the shimmer makes they seem even lighter. I have done some mixing, but really would like the matter finish. Can't wait to see what you come up with! I am always excited to try your new products. I love your make-up and am slowly converting my family. So far my teenage daughter, my 79 year old mother and two of my sisters. When one said "Whatever you're doing with your make-up lately, it looks great" My response...let me tell you about Mineral Silk. When another said "I am so tired of my make-up routine. I need something new." I am taking advantage of these openings and sharing information about your line. I show them all of my products (and I have many). I help them try out a new look and they are sold! So far, each has had me log right onto the computer and help them order their new products. I am sold and so are they. My daughter previously had severe acne and any type of make-up exacerbated her condition. With medical treatment, she has cleared and has beautiful skin. Your products do not cause any break outs and only enhance her beautiful fresh face even more! I'll keep spreading the good news and look forward to new things to come, as well as all the basics!

Mineral makeups are not created equal and Mineral Silk Mineral Makeup is the best! I orderd samples from several different companies and was shocked at how poor the quality was in the other mineral makeups, but Mineral Silk went on smoothly, blended perfectly and gave fantastic results. Not only are your products top notch your website is one of the best user-friendly Mineral Makeup sites I've seen. I can't wait to get the full sizes and start looking my best.

Hi De, I bought the Repair Serum and Vitamin C Lotion quite awhile ago and I love the products. I use them daily and have told my friends about them.

Break outs from Bare Minerals
Monday 11 May, 2009
I called and spoke with De after exausting all possibilites. I had laser skin resurfacing and was temporarily allergic to EVERYTHING! After trying my I.D. Bare Minerals to cover the rash I endured from all of the products I was trying I broke out even more. I remember that the Bare Minerals always made my skin look great until a couple of days of wearing it and then I would always breakout. I did some research on the ingredient that BM's used called Bismuth and noticed De's website. She was so helpful and reassuring. I love all of her products and am excited to try more.
