NVEY ECO shadows offer a high-quality performance worthy of professional work. However, the pressed tins are only available in pre-made palettes or singles, but I'd love to see them sold without the plastic cases as well. This would make it much more affordable for professionals who quickly wear a certain global shade in a palette, those wish to make their own palette (such as a Z palette), or those who are looking to reduce packaging.
The price is fairly expensive for singles, but the palettes are more affordable if you'd use most of the colors. I was glad to see there were samples availalable on the web store for those new to the line. There is a decent range or colors, but it's worth looking at the cake eyeliner shades for basic black and brown. I'd recommend NVEY shadows for anyone who travels a lot, works professionally, or is looking for a nice pressed, eco-friendly shadow.
Also available on Amazon.com: shadows and cake eyeliner.
Note on ingredients: According to the NVEY ECO website, both the eye shadow and cake eyeliner contain benzyl alcohol and salicylic acid, which bring the safety rating up to a moderately high 5 on EWG's Skin Deep database. However, the eyeliner sample I was sent shows a different ingredient list, which no longer contains these ingredients and rates a much lower 3. Let's hope this is the updated list!
