Pigment Suppliers

Completely Updated on 6/25/16.

This is a comprehensive list of  companies that sell pigments (not necessarily cosmetic) and/or loose eyeshadows complete with prices, sizes of containers and samples, whether they are sold by weight or volume. I have also included available shipping information and whether the company accepts PayPal for payment. Assume all prices are averaged as price varies by pigment. 

No, I did not include many "indie artists" that sell eyeshadows and the like; the few listed here are more for comparison purposes. I have nothing against those people that take the time to create new original colors, I know how difficult and time consuming a process that is, but the price per gram doesn't fit my bargain hunting ways.

  1. Hi, just wanted to add on here I found a company "Slice of the Moon" that sells various micas as well as several glow in the dark pigments that they told me will work for making nail polish. They recommended the "colored" version (the version that looks green, blue, pink, etc in the light) as it is "smooth and not gritty." Also, these are all non-toxic.

    1. Try Nailite for the Color Additive Drops, a recently added product.. http://www.nailiteinc.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=431_433. This might be what you had in mind.

  4. Will these pigments work for nail polish as well?
