Jar Size Information

DOES ONE SIZE FIT ALL?

I hear this all the time…why do you offer your mineral makeup in eleven different sizes?

Most makeup comes in one size or maybe two (one full size & one sample size)

TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION…

For starters, in my personal opinion, i don’t believe one size does fit all.

Am i crazy? Hence the name mad minerals! Maybe, maybe not!

So, off the top of my head, here are some reasons why so many sizes:

  1. ¼ TSP SAMPLE BAGGY – inexpensive way to try out our minerals – light weight for our international customers. Unlimited amount of baggy samples that ships for only $3 worldwide.
  2. ¼ TSP SAMPLE JAR – inexpensive way to try our minerals, but prefer the samples in a jar instead of the baggy.
  3. 3G SIFTER JAR – for those that want more than just a sample size (each one approx. Equal to 3 samples in one jar.
  4. 5G SIFTER JAR REFILL BAGGY- for those that bought a 5g sifter jar of minerals that they loved and want to re-use the jar. Lighter weight for shipping
  5. 5G SIFTER JAR – for those that want more than a sample, but prefer the larger 5g sized jar over the smaller 3g sized jar. (equal to approx.. 5-6 samples)
  6. 10G SIFTER JAR REFILL BAGGY - for those that bought a 10g sifter jar of minerals that they loved and want to save some money & re-use the jar. Lighter weight for shipping
  7. 10G SIFTER JAR – for those that prefer a larger size jar than our 3 & 5g sized ones. It is medium in size, perfect for applications using blush brushes & baby kabukis. (equal to approx. 8-10 samples)
  8. 20G SIFTER JAR REFILL BAGGY - for those that bought a 20g sifter jar of minerals that they loved and want to save some money & re-use the jar. Lighter weight for shipping
  9. 20G SIFTER JAR – a larger diameter that accommodates the larger brushes for all over face applications of foundation, finishers, blush & bronzers. Or for those that have a favorite multi-use mineral color & never want to run out of it (an eye shadow in this size will last a very long time!) Or a makeup artist that uses it on many clients. Holds approx. 3 -4 teaspoons of mineral powder
  10. 30G SIFTER JAR REFILL BAGGY – again, for those that want to save some money & re-use the jar. Lighter weight for shipping.
  11. 30G SIFTER JAR – our largest sized jar. It has the same diameter of the 20g jar, but is taller.  Functions the same as our 20g jar, but holds more product. Holds approx. 5-6 teaspoons of mineral powder.
Q: Can you tell me how many grams of mineral powder is in each jar?

We package our minerals by volume, not by weight because the minerals have various weights depending on the color, texture, etc.

For example, A full 30g sifter jar of Fair foundation may only weigh 10 grams, while a full Natural Dark foundation may weigh 13 grams.
Darker minerals generally weigh more then lighter minerals.
Silk Veil finishing powder is very light in weight, therefore a full 30g jar may only hold 5 grams of it.
 
We just make sure that every jar is full!
 
Here are the approximate weights per jar. Of course, depending on the type of mineral powders.
 
5g sifter jar holds .75-1.5 gram powder - Approx. 3/4 tsp. - 1 tsp.
5g Jar without sifter holds 1-2.5 grams powder - Approx. 1 tsp. - 1 1/2 tsp.
10g sifter jar holds 2.5-4 grams powder - Approx. 2 tsp. - 2 1/2 tsp.
20g sifter jar holds 4.5-8 grams powder - Approx. 1 - 1 1/8 Tbsp.
30g sifter jar holds 9-13 grams powder - Approx. 2 - 2 1/8 Tbsp

Each full size jar is packed full to our ability. However, during shipping there may be some settling, some jars may appear fuller than others.

Our refill Baggies

Q: I received my 30g Refill Baggy, Why is it only 10 grams of powder?

Please let me clarify the refill baggies. It can be confusing to many. These refills will refill the size of the jars stated. 
For example: (30g Refill Baggy) - A 30g sifter jar holds approximately 9-13 grams of mineral powder depending on the type or shade of minerals you are purchasing. Silk Veil finishing powder is one of our lightest in weight  & may even weigh less than 9 grams. 
You will NOT receive 30 grams of mineral powder. 
You will receive plenty enough to refill the empty jar size that you purchased. 
I hope that helps :)
