I wondered if it was just me so I posted a question on the forum to compare mine to theirs because I was too scared to call. I wanted to know if my issue was valid. Mostly people said that my order must have just settled in the jar more than theirs, and I guess so!
Soft twinkling honey with layers of gold and pink (Go glam or go home)Shadows of Doubt-
light honey gold with tint of pink
Electric blackened cocoa with layers of copper and pink (Go glam or go home)Bubble and Burn-
gold mixed with copper mixed with taupe plus sparkles
Golden Copper (Powdered Diamond Dust)Rock and Roll-
black with gold sparkle
Blackenend metallic rasberry with a twinkling layer of purple (Go glam or go home)
very dark purple with dark red sparkle
I compared their jar to an EDM sample jar (1 gram), and the sample jar holds slightly more. Those only costs $2.50 btw. The She Space sells full size jars for $4.50. Samples are only .50 cents!
I pressed these with glycerin and alcohol, and then baked them. They ended up too soft. I don't know if it was the baking evaporating the hold it had or what, but I wasn't satisfied. After much resistance to order EZ Prez from Coastal Scents, I caved for the sake of my pigment pressing sanity! More on that in a future post.
Shipping, Customer Service:
It took 12 days to get my order, including weekends. Way faster than last time, haha! I emailed them a couple times, and each time it got bounced back to me. I don't know what this is about since I can get their newsletter emails. I had to go on the forums and PM to get a response. Heather, the owner, saw my post on the jar levels, and so generously offered to replace the pigments I thought were less than full! Wow, what great customer service! They do live up to their 100% satisfaction.
Highly pigmented, many many colors to choose from. So silky and smooth, so sparkly! Love the Velvet collection too! So many velvets to choose from! Love the quads under "Kits for Eyes." $14 for 4 jars is a great deal! Also being able to customize your pigments will appeal to many.
It could use a little work. If the shopping basket was integrated into the main site and you could have an account, that would be a plus! I noticed the newer pigments have better photos. Yay on that note!
I would definitely order again! I already did! Check them out and at least try their samples! The shipping is cheap too!
