Mineral Makeup Foundation - Adonia Shade

Mineral Foundation For Balanced Warm And Cool Undertones

A mineral makeup foundation that is natural and perfect for light to medium skin tone, and is a cool soft pink combined with a hint of warm golden undertone for the skin that rarely tans. It is a mineral makeup shade that can work well for women who have a slight peach undertone, yet possess pinkish red overtones to their skin. It can also be lightened with FIORELLA or JENNIFER if it is still too dark, or darkened with a touch of JACINTA for deepening this shade with a perfect balance of pink and golden undertones. This is a wonderful shade for women of Northern European descent such as English or Irish heritage. Works very well for natural redhead complexions.

    Best makeup for my age 60+ skin

    Posted by patricia Paquette on 18th Sep 2015

    I decided to try this make up after developing a stubborn facial rash following a 30% TCA peel. Well, rash gone! Beautiful finish! I have received more comments about how wonderful my skin looks when wearing this foundation! I only buy make up that is "good" for my sensitive skin now and I have used dozens of well- known brands. This is by far the best! By the way, I really appreciate your You Tube instruction videos. Thank you for making this wonderful product.

    My Search is Over

    Posted by Donna J on 5th May 2015

    This wonderful mineral foundation is so natural looking, I really don't know it's there. But the before and after mirror tells it all. No flaking, no chalking, no crease gathering, stays on all day, covers my rosacea nicely. I could go on with praises, and especially after trying a ton of others, I am so grateful. This product is worth having. Lesson learned.

    And your helpful service and videos are highly recommended. Thanks.

    Sterling Minerals Changed My Life!

    Posted by Melody C on 4th Nov 2014

    This is not like me to write a company to tell them how much I love their product, in fact I never have done it, but I have to let you know how happy you are making women.

    I’m 31 and have been trying to find a good makeup my whole life. I had started using minerals in 2004 starting with BE (made me look oily in minutes), MAC (made me look orange), Avon (gave me a rash) I was on a mission to find a good make up. I found a company called After Glow that I almost tried, but then I found you, and my life is so much better because of it!

    Your web site is awesome with all the information, the color choice is incredible, and most of all I love that you make three types of formula’s. When I ordered I was not expecting to be this happy, I asked for two samples and gave one to my sister. She used it until it was gone and tried her BE again (because she had just bought it right before I gave her the sample) she wore it one day and sent me a email saying “that she just ordered your product, BE makes me look so washed out and painted on, holey crap what crap”. And I have to agree. Thank you for your hard work!

    Thankfully yours,
    Melody from Albuquerque

    I Am So Happy...

    Posted by Edna in Seattle on 16th Sep 2014

    because their products are the best and their foundation is beautiful on my skin. Shade match is never an issue even if I have to blend it a bit with Fiorella to lighten it. What I have to say I love most about all of their mineral makeup is it is NEVER OUT OF STOCK! I got so sick and tired of other brands always running out of my shade sending me on another hunt for a reseller of whatever brand I was using at the time to see if I could find it. Very tiresome. Sterling has always had my shades no matter the time of year. They say they manufacture their own minerals and I believe it because they NEVER run out! Oh did I mention their mineral makeup is AWESOME? Well it is. Customer FOREVER!

    Absolutely Shocked!

    Posted by Robin on 26th Aug 2014

    Okay, I have worn bareminerals for 12 years. I have semi oily acne prone skin. Each time I went to bareminerals I was NEVER color matched the same. It is hard being a Redhead. The makeup industry doesn't accommodate redheads much! I found sterling minerals on a search because my skin became sensitive to the powder foundation. I even tried the 'new' bareskin foundation and wound up with a face on fire! My sterling mineral samples came in the mail this week. I was so excited to try them. BUT- the Adonia shade SCARED me. Looked different than any shade I have ever used. Good for natural redheads? hmm. Well I thought okay- put it on and don't be shy! I was SHOCKED. It blended in over the Jennifer foundation I used for concealing and I couldn't tell I had foundation on (my skin looked refreshed)- It melted right in making my skin look Flawless and New. My husband said I went from 49 years old to 19 years old. He has always been overly honest with me because He likes the 'natural' look. I was SOLD! Can't wait to share it with the site: ! If they haven't been introduced to sterling minerals it's about time! Thank you!

    BEST Mineral Makeup ever!

    Posted by TNReader on 31st Jul 2014

    I have tried just about every mineral foundation around: Jane Iredale, bareMinerals, Pur Minerals, Sheer Cover, Mary Kay, Merle Norman, etc. This is the first that has not caused breakouts. It is not chalky & does not cake. After many 12 to 18 hours days, I can confidently say this foundation is near bullet-proof! Without any touch-ups, it stays perfectly in place with little if any oil-breakthrough. I have both the Dewy and the Velvet formulations so that I can increase oil control when necessary. The Adonia shade proved to be a great match for my light-medium skin, while the lighter Fiorella works as a good highlighter. And last, but definitely not least: the brushes sold by Sterling are PHENOMENAL!! They are pricey, but worth every single penny. After months of use and many washings, the bristles are still tight and the handles are in one piece.
