The newest addition to the Sweetscents line of minerals is our fabulous new line of glo foundation, foundations which also work well as concealers, blushes which also double as flushes for the healthy look, and of course fabulous mineral veils, are often used as either a foundation, concealer, mineral veil, or as a highlighter.

This is the new spring look for flawless, airbrushed look without the sparkles, just a healthy hint of glo. Many of these shades can be used as a translucent blush for the beach, or as a setting veil for your makeup. Our glo foundation also help absorb extra oil and perspiration.

These foundations are great in the gym, or pool, as they are not removed with water contact. If you simply dab the face dry rather than rub it, most of your mineral makeup will stay intact with this fabulous new line.

They contain a SPF factor of 19 with normal application, 2 layers will provide more protection, a very light layer will provide less. All Sweetscents minerals are free of bismuth oxychloride, fillers, perfumes, oils, chemicals, or talc. The light reflecting minerals make your skin look healthy and fresh, giving you a natural soft radiant glow look without that thick pancake mask look.

Sweetscents minerals will even out skin tones if you have lighter and darker areas of skin on the face. Folks often use this makeup that is dermatologist recommended with skin problems such as Rosacea, dermabrasion, acne or sensitive skin.

FAQ about Sample Size Jars

It has been so long since I update this Blogshop of mine. Thousand apologies. redface

Today, I want to talk about my jars since many inquired about it.

Here's what I have compiled from the questions that I got:-

1. What size is your jars?
EP says: 5g size jar.

2. What is the price for one 5g jar?
EP says: RM1.50 / each

3. Does it comes with an extra lid (as in the picture)?
EP says: Yes. RM1.50 includes the cap, lid and the body. :)

4. Do you have those clear-lid ones?
EP says: See below.

As you can see the above, on the right side is the clear-lid jar which does not come with any protection lid / filter.

Side view comparison

What's the actual difference between the two?

See the mess? I'm not sure about other users who have these, but I find them not user-friendly and just look at the mess it creates!!

Especially when you open it up...

See the spillage?

And that's why I do not opt these for my pigment samples. :) So, in short, I DO NOT SELL CLEAR-LID Sample jars. :)

5. Can I know how much is 1/4tsp?
EP says: See below.

6. Any special price if I buy these jars in bulk?
EP says: My jar price is fixed to RM1.50 (for quantity below 100 jars). FREE SHIPPING (registered parcel) if you purchase more than 20 jars. :)

Any other questions? Feel free to mail me at

I have compiled a page for Frequent Answered Questions (FAQs) and I hope these will further enhance your knowledge on pigments & mineral make up.

FAQs on Pigments:
1. What is Pigments?
[Credits to martygreene @ Specktra]
MAC DEFINITION: Pigment is a highly concentrated loose color powder that contains ingredients to help it adhere to the skin. Pigment is available in matte and frosted finishes and comes in an excellent range of colors. Use to create a subtle wash of color or an intense effect. Pigment does not streak or cake, is easy to blend and long-lasting.

Since pigments are not packed according to volume, but are all packaged into the same containers, some jars will seem to be under filled while others are packed full. Different textures of pigment have different weights, and thus will pack differently. Generally those of the larger grain such as frost or rose will be very full, and are very fluffy. Most pigments will be full or near full. Pigments such as mattes, or finer textures may seem under filled.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: These are a heavily pigmented loose powder product that is highly versatile. Many people are fond of pigments for many uses, and pigments are often collected. They come in a variety of finishes varying from matte to a finish similar to luster eye shadows in loose form.

2. What is the difference between eyeshadows and pigments?
Pigments comes in loose form, whereas eyeshadows are presesd form.

3. What can pigments do in make up?
Pigments can be used in many ways. Pigments can be used in nail polish, lip gloss, lipstick, mascara, hair gel, as a loose eye shadow, as a loose blusher, as a loose highlighter, as a loose bronzer, as a body sparkle, and many other ways. Pigments can also be mixed together to create another new color, and it works better if you are using the same brands.

4. How do I apply pigments?
There are several ways of applying pigments:-
(a) By using an eye base before applying pigments such as CCB (cream color base) which helps "grab" the pigment and keeps it in place.
(b) By applying them "wet" (or foil the pigments) such as wet the applicator or brush with water/mixing medium before applying.
(c) By applying them using a sponge applicator or a shadow brush, lightly touch the pigment dust off any excess mica) and apply to your eye lids.

** tip: "pat" the pigments on and not drag it like you normally would with eyeshadow.

5. What do you mean by sample sizes and how much pigments I will be getting from you?
All MAC pigments are measured in either 1/4teaspoon or 1/2teaspoon and they are all packed in 5g jars with an inner lid. If you would like to try MAC Pigments, we have the smallest sample size , which is 1/4tsp; if you loved it and would require more, it would be RM15 for 1/2 teaspoon and so on. All MAC pigment are sold in jars only.

As for other brands of pigments (ie. Sweetscents), they are sold in two forms, either in jars or in baggy (zip-lock bags). There are several sizes for mineral pigments and foundations, you can have them either in 1/4tsp, 1/2tsp or even 1 full size 5g jars.

6. Are all pigments eye safe?
As for the current list, all pigments are eye safe (unless stated) except for glitters. Glitters can be used at the eye area but it is not advisable to use it on the waterline or as an eyeliner. You can read more at Specktra.

7. Why my pigments looks lesser in the container compared to the other colors?
Pigments are not packed according to volume, some jars will seem to be under filled while others are looked as in the pictures. Different textures of pigment have different weights, and thus will pack differently.

Larger grained pigments such as frosty or metallic colors may appear more than those finely milled pigments such as mattes, or the latest Overrich pigments.

8. What are the difference between MAC pigments and Mineral Pigments (ie. Sweetscents / MAD)?
Mineral pigments made to suit all skin types hence the pigments may not adhere to the skin as much as MAC pigments do. MAC pigments and mineral pigments has different ingredients formulations hence both of them are not comparable with each other.
