***Silk Mica is natural and is similar to sericite mica, but it is silkier, whiter, and offers a soft, smooth texture.

***Boron Nitride is a soft, silky, white mineral powder that adds slip and adhesion to a product. Boron Nitride is soft and adds supreme creaminess to the powder, and is a natural, inert mineral.

***Carnauba Wax Mica is Sericite Mica that has been surface treated with Carnauba Wax, the wax coating helps bind the particles, so the formulas have less fly away when pressed.

***Titanium Dioxide is a natural mineral used to whiten, and it makes a product more opaque.

***Magnesium Stearate is a chemical compound of Magnesium (element, same as in vitamins) and Stearate (plant-derived).

***Magnesium Myristate is the combination of Magnesium (a mineral) and Myristate, a fatty acid (naturally occurring). Magnesium Myristate will add adhesion, slip, soft feel, and helps to repel water.

***Zinc Stearate made from natural and essential raw material.

***Fractionated Coconut Oil (we use this to bind our powders) - fraction of coconut oil comprised mainly of Capric and Caprylic Acid, thus giving it more of an antioxidant and disinfecting effect. Fractionated Coconut Oil has a long shelf life, stability, and rancidity resistance.

***Colored Micas add color, shimmer, and shine to the product.

***Nylon12 is a powder we use to help with the slip in some of our deeper, more pigmented shades. 

***Oxides are natural minerals and add color to the product, also helps with making the product opaque.

***Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Hexylene Glycol - Preservative we use to preserve our eyeshadows and make them last longer.

We offer a seven day 100% money-back guarantee.

    Grey Brown

    Picture on line looks more purple then brown. It is definitely a brown with a grey under tone as the description states. Metallic magic with micro glitters!

    Purchased during the Christmas in July sale

    Like the eyeshadow but would say that these pictures online do not reflect the depth or shade. It's actually not as dark on the eyes. Would rate that it's about the same depth of shade as the moon landing matte eyeshadow and it's not a dark as pictured online which was something I wasn't expecting. But it pairs well and has minimal fall out.

    Dark gray

    I don’t see any brown in this color on me, it’s a deep gunmetal color but still makes for a stunning smokey eye look

    Amazing everyday shimmer shade with a pearly finish. The silver/gray tones are a little stronger than I expected, but it still blends equally well with brown or gray. Very flattering taupe if you happen to be a medium-deep, cool toned person.

    Best Formula!

    Posted by sarah ingersoll on Sep 6th 2019

    Somber is one of my favorite SG shades! The formula is smooth, lasts a long time and blends amazingly! I wear this weekly and recurve so many compliments. I hv fair cool toned complexion and have already bought a back up like many of my other SG faves (tiara, troops, rover, officer, peace)

    Somber eyeshadow is WONDERFUL

    Posted by Ann on Oct 12th 2017

    This eyeshadow has excellent pigment and amazing staying power. I put my makeup on at 6am and work 8 hours, then go right to the gym for an hour. At the end of the night, the eyeshadow still looked flawless.
