Zinc Oxide has natural healing qualities and is used to calm and soothe irritated skin and is an anti-inflammatory. It also acts as a physical barrier that provides excellent protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Titanium Dioxide is also an important ingredient because of its ability to provide sun protection to the skin. Mica ingredient imparts a soft focus effect that creates a natural, healthy, and youthful glow that instantly fills facial lines to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Silica delays the aging process by moisturizing skin and stimulating collagen re-growth and also helps deliver a silky feel. Retinyl Palmitate is a Vitamin A derivative that helps to reverse signs of aging. Panthenol is a B complex vitamin, aiding in skin moisturization. Palmitate is known to normalize skin. It will help to keep skin soft and plump. Clinical results have shown that vitamin A palmitate significantly increased skin composition to increase collagen, DNA, skin thickness, and elasticity.

I had a hard time catching the right color of Natural.
It showes up more orange in the pictures than it is in real life.

Natural - Warm Light
Natural - Cold Light

These loose Eyeshadows comes in sifters jars.
I did not peal the protective sticker off. I just poked 2 holes in it.
That seems to be enough to get a good amount of product out.

 Would I recommend these? - Yes, well pigmented and easy to work with.
And I think it is good to use a primer to get the best result.

All swatches with no primer or base.
