Random Assets

A few experimental presses and a few of my favorites. After a depotting incident, I repressed Sumptuous Olive eyeshadow by crushing and using the same pressing process as I do with regular pressed pigments. Scatterrays Solar Bits was a bit of a challenge as it's very, very chunky and dry compared to regular MAC pigments. There are binders in it already so all you really need is 91% isopropyl alcohol.

However, Rose Gold Metal does NOT have any binders. After the liquid metal dries, it'll crumble and chunk off after you press it down. With a little help, I used MAC PRO Mixing Medium Face & Body as my medium with alcohol. This is by far the best binder for mineral makeup like Bare Escentuals, plus MAC matte pigments, MAC metal pigments, NYX, etc. Unfortunately it is currently not available in PRO stores to this day as MAC is "repackaging" it (I've asked NYC, Chicago, and LA locations).

Then a couple of my fave VHTF pigments are Deckchair (A15) and Coco Beach (A43). Both of which, I paid an excruciating amount of money for authentic original jars. Believe me... they're worth every penny. Or I might just crave the hunt.
