The Conservatorie/My Brand Cosmetics Pressed Mineral Eyeshadows Swatches & Review

EDIT: I just got more of these, check out my new post here 

My video:

I am so impressed with these eyeshadow. It is hard enough to find an all natural pressed mineral shadows, but to also have them be of good quality AND an affordable price, well that is nothing short of amazing in my book! Plus these come in all sorts of palettes and are custom made for you. I chose the 6 pan palette because it is the most economical with 6 shadows for only $9.95.
I mostly selected shadows which are on the bright/colorful side because I love color and wanted to get some shades I didn't already have anything too similar to, but they also have lots of neutrals.
These are soft and smooth, have awesome pigmentation, and some of the most natural ingredients I have seen in a pressed shadow.

INGREDIENTS: Mica, Zinc Stearate, Boron Nitride, Hydrated Silica, CaprylicCapric Triglycerides, Allantoin. May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Ultramarines, Manganese Violet, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Chromium Green Oxides and Tin Oxide.

There are a few matte/suede shades but most are pearly or metallic. And I am happy to say none have any glitter in them (glitter fallout is a pet peeve of mine). But if you are more of a gliterry shadow kind of gal, they do have pressed glitters as well:
And you can even customize the palette to be part shadows and part pressed glitters:

FTC Disclaimer: I did receive this for free via a store credit provided to me, but I was in no way asked to review, swatch, or make a blog post about these products. I decided to make a post about these on my own because I loved them so much, and wanted to show you the colors. All opinions are honest and my own.

    1. I listed the price and link to the palettes in my post :) The 6 pan is $9.95 and then they have a few other options like quads and singles which are various prices.

  2. I am so thrilled to see these! I keep looking at these but I didn't know how they would turn out in person (I was worried about them being too shimmery). Thank you! Now I need to figure out a palette. Maybe rose-gold colors?

    1. I love the finish! I am like you and fear shimmer because I hate fall-out :) So it is awesome that they are pearly :)
