Our highly concentrated loose eye shadows/liners weigh approximately 3 grams (full size--this is not the size of the jar, but the weight), and are packed in clear jars. Some settling may occur during shipping but at the time of packaging, they are packed down firmly and filled to the top. They may be applied dry or wet, but for best results we recommend "patting" the colour on instead of "sweeping" it to apply. Please keep in mind that the majority of Fyrinnae colours are complex and "layered", they are not repackaged mica. This does alter the application methods for many shades vs. traditional shadows. As with all of our products, all shades are created in our studio/lab then tested by us. Eye Shadow Ingredients: Mica.
