MyMix Clear Pressing Medium (Vegan)

MyMix Clear Pressing Medium (Vegan)

**Reddit Shoppers** If you are interested in ordering the MyMix Clear Pressing referred in the reddit article. Please click here!

8/5/2016, we have reconfirmed that this product is (and has always been) synthethic and vegetable derived - fully VEGAN.

MyMix Pressing Medium is a blend of silicones with a mid-weight viscosity (see the View Details Hyperlink above for complete INCI labeling information).

It was recommended to us as a good all-purpose pressing medium by a cosmetic chemist who used to work for a big name cosmetic manufacturer and whose area of expertise was pressed powder products.

Once we had the product in our hands, we gave large samples to forty of our customers, along with the instructions to run it through the paces. The results of those efforts will soon be published in an awesome pressed powder ebook. The ebook will include photos, recipes, videos, tips, tricks and more, a massive compilation of efforts by our very creative customers! Anyway, let us just say: our customers loved this pressing medium and gave it 80 thumbs up!

To use as a pressing medium, you can just eyeball it into the formula. Simply add drop by drop to your powders, stir well and stop when the powders have the consistency of wet sand. Then start pressing. Did we mention the ebook will be released soon? Check back in May!

In addition to being a pressing medium the product may be added to creams, lotions, and moisturizers at a recommended use level of 1% - 4% of formula by weight. You would add it to obtain the following benefits:

  • moisturizing
  • semi gloss appearance
  • soft, silky after feel
  • transparent
  • cushion effect
  • skin absorption

Here's another suggestion: mix it into your daily-use conditioner at the same a recommended use level of 1% - 4% and see how it coats the hair to give it extra shine!

Store in clean, dry area and avoid freezing.

1s1s1s1s1sPress your heart out!
By Heather
This is a fantastic pressing binder! I used this alone w/ a little alcohol on the bottom of the pan (and between pressed layers) and had great results every time. Be sure to mix it well into your powders, and don't 'over wet'. Works best when you can count out drops (so I recommend the 1/2 oz size to start out with since it is in a plastic dropper bottle already).

1s1s1s1s1sThe best pressing medium out there!
By Rene'
I was so pleased how easy this was to use! It presses absolutely beautifully and firmly. It's also cheaper than other pressing mediums out there. I paid $10.00 for a 2 oz bottle of pressing medium and TKB's is only $4.99 for the same amount! Plus, they have the added bonus of pans, pressing tools, palettes, and over 200 eyeshadow colors! Need I say more?

By Kristina
This is my FAVORITE pressing medium. It works better than any oil/silicone I have tried! It is easy to work with, and you get fabulous results. Try this out, you will thank me for it!:)

1s1s1s1s1sGreat medium at an affordable price!
By Oxana
Works really well. Just be careful you don't add too much because it doesn't dry like some other pressing mediums. About 2 drops per 1 gram of product is plenty, use alcohol to make it "wetter" after that if you need to. And what a great bargain it is for that price!

By samantha
I really love this for a pressing medium, however I used to much the first time because I was trying to do it by weight. The result was a nice matte cream color, which I wasn't going for. However when I did it again I used less and it was perfect! Also the cost is very affordable and a little bit goes a long way.

By erica
I used to use nothing but alcohol to press my eyeshadows. Now that Im using this I dont need much alcohol and when I stroke the brush against the eyeshadow I get little to no fly away powder on the tin. It also makes the eyeshadow better looking and last longer.

By leslie
i just received this pressing medium and i tried using it how they show in the video by just adding a drop to the tin and pressing but that did not work. i felt like it made my pigments clumpy, i used alcohol but now my eyeshadows smell like alcohol, what did i do wrong any advice? TKB Responds: Best is to contact us by email and we can send links and make better suggestions. However the general rule is to add enough liquid to make it feel like damp sand. Just like you are making a sand castle (not too much, not too little). Also be sure to add the binder powder as well. It helps things stick together. But send an email and we can respond better.

By Gina
This stuff is great! Just one question, what is the shelf life of this pressing medium? TKB Responds: about two years.

1s1s1s1s1sGreat product
By Cathi
New to making presses eyeshadow and I've not had any problems it works great. I also use the matte texture base it help. both great products.

By Tiffany
When I use this as directed, I am getting little clumsy of gooo that ruin the shadow when pressed. It never fully mixed into the powder due to its jelly like texture. How can I avoid this?
