See other listing for the full size pots.
Gold Cream - A sheer ivory based gold satin. Very sheer, great highlighter. The last photo is a skin swatch to show sheerness.
Paradise Blue - An unusual shade that looks super pale aqua in the jar and would go on fairly sheer if you just dusted it lightly across the lids, but add a bit of a "rub" and the deep sea blue shade comes up. This one was very hard to capture in a photo.
Iceberg - Another color changing shade. Super pale, icy teal that rubs down to a deeper shimmery teal color.
Mermaid's Gold - Yet another color changer - soft golden cream to start but turning a golden teal shade when rubbed down. It doesn't take a lot of pressure get this effect - just rub with fingertip or with the brush or use the Foiling method for eyeliner.
Gilded Peach - A very gold, sparkling shade with a deep peach undertone. If you rub it down it will become more peachy and less gold. Great shade for all eye colors.
Sultan - A very unique shade. It is a reddish peach with a metallic violet undertone. It would make an intense contrast color for green or hazel eyes.
3 gm pots come without a sifter so you get more product. 3 gm is quite a bit of color as eye shadows go and will last a long time, but we also offer it in 5 and 10 gm sizes.
No Sifter equals More Product :)
Our mineral color comes in a clear 3 gm pot with NO sifter. I see no need for a sifter when you are using such small amounts of product - this also means you get about 2x as much product in ours because the sifters sit half-way down in the pot on most cosmetic jars and can only be filled that high.
Natural mineral eye colors are easy to apply as a sheer wash on the lids with a fluff brush or the deeper, darker colors are excellent as an Eye Liner and brow color.
Did you know you can add mineral color to your nail polish too ? Just a bit though - too much can make your polish not adhere as well.
* Foiling - Wetting mineral colors to make them much more intense and to bring out the shimmer & metallic properties.
To use as Eye Liner all you need is a sharp angle brush and a drop of water (or even eye drops - they work great). Dip your brush in a drop of water, dip in the eye shadow then use the lid to blend the pigment on the brush and get the minerals to just the right consistency.
Mix in the lid for a few seconds if it is too watery, but not until it gets too dry. With a little bit of practice you will know when it is the right consistency.
Apply to the lash-line, give it a minute to dry and your liner will last all day with no smudging or irritation..
