The Difference Between Loose, Cream + Pressed Eyeshadow

When shopping for eyeshadow, some people gravitate towards the convenience of a pressed eye shadow pan, others prefer the larger selection of colors and finishes that loose pigments offer, while some love the versatility and easy application of a cream.

Is there a distinction between the three, and is one better than the other?
The main differences are in the ingredients used to wet the powder for both cream and pressed, which allow for pressing into pans and pouring into jars.

Mixing agents include vegetable oils, esters, or other emollients that help the pigment stick to itself. Some brands add fillers such as talc to pressed shadow to give the powder a smoother feel on the skin. Here at Orglamix, we do not use talc or fillers fillers.

While all three types of shadow may have a place in your stash, one may have have a higher color payoff than the other. Our loose pigments are pure, raw color and offer extreme color payoff and offer rich, vibrant color. 

While all three types of shadow may have a place in your stash, one may have have a higher color payoff than the other. 

No matter what type of eye shadow you use, start with an eye-shadow primer. This product helps to form a barrier between the oils in your eyelid and your eye shadow so the makeup lasts longer and doesn’t crease. Primer can also even out discoloration of your eyelids so your eye shadow goes on true to color. While pressed, loose and cream shadows may be used on their own, you can also combine them to create different looks. Using a cream eye shadow in a matching shade under your pressed or loose shadow makes the color more intense for a bold, dramatic look.
