Our pressed shadows have a very different texture from our loose shadows. They appear much more metallic in some cases. They MUST have a primer under them and some are a little bit more difficult to use so please keep that in mind when first trying them. Each shadow is pressed into a 26mm tin pan. Each one contains approximately 3/4 of a tsp which is a little bit more than our full jars. Different textures will affect how "full" your tin will look. They all have the same amount, it just depends on how the ingredients settled.
Quad: If you choose quad, you MUST purchase a quad and 4 shadows with it. They will come organized in the quad from light to dark with a GDE sticker on the top and a sticker on the bottom with all the ingredients for each shadow.
Palette: If you choose a palette, you MUST purchase a palette and 12 shadows to go with it. They will come organized in the palette from light to dark with a GDE sticker on the top and a sticker on the bottom with the name and ingredients of each shadow. Clamshell: If you choose clamshell you will be receiving a single shadow glued into a plastic clamshell with a GDE label and ingredients/name on the bottom. (Please allow 2-3 processing days for all orders in a clamshell) We do not offer single pan shadows without a clamshell/quad at the moment. Queen Cro is dirty mauve with a silver sheen and sparkle. This color is exclusive to our pressed line and was created by the beautiful Kelly of Fair Maiden. Ingredients: Talc, Mica, Zinc Stearate, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide, Bismuth Oxychloride, Magnesium Stearate, Triglycerides of Caprylic / Capric Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate.
Approved For: eyes, lips, face & nails. PLEASE NOTE: Each shadow is hand pressed IN HOUSE in very small batches. We don't have a machine that mass produces pressed shadows so there may be small imperfections. That is the joy of buying handmade.
Swatches are done with a finger over a primer. Images or quad and clamshell shown are just examples of packaging.
