These are sold as loose pigment eye shadows. These will be best if used wet with a fixing spray, eye drops or water. Glitter glue will also help them to adhere better to the skin. These do apply dry to the skin but they won't have the intensity or sticking power like they do once they are wet.

***Silk Mica is natural and is similar to sericite mica but its silkier, whiter and offers a soft, smooth texture that is mattifying.
WHY WE USE IT: we use this version of Mica because it is silkier and softer then regular sericite mica. This helps to make our shadows feel more luxurious. The price for this powder is about double what regular sericite mica is because of how silky smooth it applies - we think it is worth it!
***Boron Nitride is a soft, silky white mineral powder that adds slip and adhesion to a product. It is soft and adds supreme creaminess to the powder. Boron Nitride is a natural, inert mineral.
***Caranuba Wax Mica this is a 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. This also imparts great skin feel with amazingly smooth and light finish.
***Titianium Dioxide is a natural mineral used to whiten and 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. If you choose to press your powders having this in the base helps your powders press more easily
***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. Has a long shelf life, stability and rancidity resistant.
***Colored Micas add color, shimmer and shine to the product.
***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. This is used at about .2% of the total weight

We want to be completely honest with our customers and saying that our products are ALL NATURAL might seem misleading to those that don't realize that ALL micas, oxides and mineral colorants are actually made in a lab. The colorants that we use are nature identical - exact chemical structure as the minerals mined out of the ground, we don't use any colorants other than these nature identical ones in our eye shadows.
This is taken from the soapqueen.com's website - Pigments and Oxides are considered “nature identical” meaning they are the exact same chemical structure as the platelet minerals found in the earth. But they are created in a lab to ensure purity. Oxides and pigments are the same product that mineral make up lines use to achieve lovely natural hues. Manufacturing nature identical products keeps the bad stuff, like lead and arsenic for example, out of the colorants. Industry wide, pigments and oxides are labeled as natural in all types of mineral makeup and soaps for this reason because they are nature identical and many don’t contain any synthetic dyes. The word ‘natural’ is not a regulated or defined term in the soap and cosmetic industry.
