When I'm not working on fulfilling orders, I take a break by making these eye shadows =)
This is a BETA version of the official Pressed Shadow to be released in few weeks. These are perfected pigment formulas, but the texture may not be 100% perfect-- resulting in a dramatic decrease in price. The difference in texture does not effect the application of the eye shadows.
Q: Why is the surface uneven?
It has to do with my pressing ability. These are pressed palettes-- you literally mash all the pigment together using a binding factor, which is a various combination of chemicals, and then press them down with a tile. Because I'm using my hands and not a machine, I can't press as accurately/evenly as a machine, causing an imperfect surface. I'm not sure how much I'll be able to improve on this, but I'll try!
With the exception of how they LOOK and feel IN the palette, I'm VERY proud of these. They're SO pigmented. I really loaded up on the minerals on these. I think these will EASILY rival MAC's pressed shadows. I have one of MAC's shimmer black pressed shadows, and it's not very pigmented compared to these. They GLIDE on, but they're so ugly looking -_-. I want to create a SMOOTH pressed surface. However, this doesn't take away from how it looks worn.
They are currently $5.50 each shipped. They will be going up to about $8 shipped each when I perfect the look of them =)
^ Midnight Sky is my FAV.

Yes, these are 100% handmade from scratch by me =)
