My Impression:

I am a complete eye shadow junkie!  I have quite a collection of eye shadows so this one fit right in.  I have never tried any of UltraPure Cosmetics' products before and I have to tell you that I was very pleased.  This is one of the silkiest and creamiest pressed eye shadows I have ever tried.  This stuff glides right onto the eye and stays put!  The color I tried was Coffee Bean from the Natural Collection.  The color is very pigmented and rich as you can see from the swatch above.  I think this color would be perfect for creating a dramatic smokey eye however I work in a professional setting so I try to keep my eye makeup light which is why I have actually been using this product as a liner.  By wetting my eyeliner brush and swiping it across the shadow and then applying to my eyelid and under my eyes I can create a liquid eyeliner look that adds just enough drama to my everyday eye look.

UltraPure also offers a Liquid Liner Fixative that you could try as well which will give you more of a liquid liner look as opposed to a soft liner look.

I know I mention this every time but the fact that these products don't contain any Bismuth Oxychloride, a know skin irritant, is a big plus for me! I always try to be mindful of the chemicals that I am applying to my skin which is why I try to find companies that offer products that do not contain harmful chemicals.

The Pressed Perfection Eye Shadow Collection offers 24 amazing shades so you can be sure to find some amazing shades to create your own perfect look. You can check out the colors here.
