New INtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments Now Shipping!

If you like the smooth, velvety coverage you get from Mehron’s StarBlends, You’re going to love their new INtense Pro Pressed Pigment Powders!  Many artists love to use dry pressed powders for the base coverage for full face designs, and especially for designs that go around the eyes and over the eyelids…especially for children who don’t like the feeling of cold, wet paint around their eye.

From Mehron’s website: “Mehron’s INtense PRO™ Pressed Pigments are super long-lasting matte finish shadows that are edgy, bright, and sophisticated. The pigment rich, high-performing shadows offer an essential range of intense hues and a velvety matte texture. Formulated without shimmer, these completely matte shades have an incredible silky finish which allows for amazing color payoff.”

The INtense Pressed Powders are available now on in three different sets, each including 8 colors ($50.00 each).  Above are some samples of the “Wind” palette brushed on my arm, and below, the “Fire” palette.

Each palette comes with a makeup brush! I find that the sable brushes that we sell are also great for applying powders. Sponges also work well for covering large areas.
