***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.

***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. This is used at about .2% of the total weight

    Not sure what I was expecting here... From the photo it looks brown almost terracotta in Instagram YouTube it looked more purple and description says lavender mauve so I was hoping for a mauve purple shade but it's a plum red on my skin tone. This is not what I was looking for but the quality is good and blends well.

    SG reformulated this and sent it to me again out of the blue and it is perfect. Just as great, opaque, and easy to use now as their other mattes.

    Not usual SG greatness

    Posted by Keely Nelsen on Sep 4th 2018

    I have over a hundred SG shadows and have always found them to be consistent. I feel like the mattes almost have a creamy sort of thick consistency. This one is different. SG replaced mine with a second one after the original one I was sent was pressed too hard to get any pigment out of. Then they made a new batch and sent me a new one. This one I am able to pick up on a brush but it's weird. It's thinner in consistency than other mattes I have from them. When I go to swatch it (I don't put stock in swatches, but in this case it does matter) it picks up on my finger but won't really transfer off of it and it does something similar with a brush. You can pick it up on a brush (tried natural and synthetic) but it doesn't really want to come off again so it goes on patchy. It takes a lot of building and a lot of blending to get it to not be patchy, but you can smooth it out eventually. It's a pretty mauvey color, but it does live up to the name it is indeed upredictable. I've never had any problems with SG shadows until this last order that I made during the big sale when a ton of the site went on preorder including this shade. The other reviews on this shade are rave so maybe it was just them being under the gun with the sale that affected the shadow quality.

    Unpredictable is a dark dusty rose color / a muted plum with soft pink tones. This shade is a great alternative if you are trying to dupe the Kat Von D plum quad or the Dose of Colors Marvelous Mauves palette. Not chalky or patchy, excellent quality, I highly recommend it!
