Mineral Makeup Jars + Packaging by Grams

Avid mineral makeup users find it convenient to buy a few extra empty cosmetic jars to mix their own colors, use for travel, and also to share samples with friends and family. Orglamix stocks empty jars, lids and sifters for your mineral makeup needs. We also stock our bestselling refillable makeup bursh and refillable makeup jar.  Prices are competitive, and there is a jar that suits each mineral product: 30-gram (10-gram by weight) for foundation, 10-gram (3-gram by weight) for blush, bronzer, setting powder, and eyeshadow, and 5-gram (1 gram by weight) for eyeshadows, shimmers, and glosses.  Loose powder cosmetics are required in the US to be measured by weight, not volume, so that is why we always list approximate weights for powder products on the label.
