Great Impressions Eye Shadow Pressing Kit




Great Impressions is a pressing medium that works with BOTH matte and shimmer colors.  

All you have to do is add a few pumps to a shadow, press it into the pan, and let it dry.  You do have to press every single bit of excess liquid out of the shadows with pliers, or vice grips, but that's really the hardest part.

You'll receive:

A 30 ml pump bottle of Great Impressions
15 pans- these are magnet sensitive so they'll fit in magnetic palette
A magnetic palette that holds 14 pans
1 pod to hold the pans
2 mixing spatulas

This does not include a pressing disk.  An American quarter, a Euro or a Pound coin all work well, and we have pressing disks available separately if you'd prefer to use a pressing disk.

Each bottle of pressing medium should be enough to press at least 15 shadows.

The shelf life of a pressed product is about 2 years- the same as if you were pressing with glycerin, or another pressing medium.  

The appearance, and wear time of pressed shadows vs. loose is about the same.  Some colors do fade slightly, but it's generally not a huge difference.  We're pretty sure this will work with most eye shadows, but press at your own risk.

Ingredients:  Ethanol, water, propanediol, carbomer

Review by Joey F
This is excellent. I was always a bit intimidated by the idea of pressing loose eyeshadows because I didn't want to have to experiment with as soon as I saw this on the site I had to have it. It makes pressing so easy having all the essentials in one kit. I love the little magnetic compact - perfect size for travelling! Definitely read the instructions and watch Oxana's video; I also recommend her second video on pressing matte shadows as she tells you how to get harder or softer pressed shadows, depending on your preference. I also pressed some non- Silk Naturals shadows and it worked fine though I found that with those that contained dye there was a slight discolouration where the edge of the shadow met the pan.
