I was first interested in Moi Minerals, owned by Holly, mostly because it is the first Canadian indie make-up company I have come across. I was browsing the Facebook page when I came across a picture of some pressed shadows in a pretty palette that Holly made and sold a while back and I was interested. I first sent a message through Facebook to ask about creating a custom pressed palette, waited a week or so, no response. Then I emailed Holly through her companies e-mail, STILL no response! I was a bit insulted to be ignored twice so for a while I ignored the company, but the colours looked really nice so about a month later she had a free shipping sale so I decided to take the plunge anyways and ordered 10 samples.
She shipped out a fair while after I ordered, but I received in an acceptable amount of time (I am in Canada though and I have heard some U.S. customers complain about shipping time).
The baggies are pretty cheap, they rip very easily.
No free samples, I was surprised by this as every company I've bought from in the past have always included at least 1 free sample.
With all this said though I do really like most of the eyeshadows I got. Here are the shades I got, swatched over a thin layer of PE and in varying degrees of sunlight:
Chrome Blue: I really like this blue, it is chrome-ish but not as metallic as the name would suggest.
Risque: This colour is a nice, basic teal colour.
Hot as Hell: Another nice but basic colour, I have a few shadows that are similar to this one.
Snap: I really like this bright green!
Diego: Now this one is neat, I don't own anything like it. It's a taupe base with blue duochrome, stunning over a black base.
Cactus sun: Also a neat colour, a sort of sand-colour base with a green duochrome, also looks great over a black base.
Mercy: This is my favorite colour of the bunch! It's hard to explain the colour as it changes but it's a very metallic shade which I LOVE. It' sort of pinkish/brown.
Zombie Princess: Now this one I really did not like. It was not as dark as the listing suggested, it was also chalky and difficult to apply even just to swatch.
Crazy Bitch: I really like this colour, it is very similar to Evil Shades Cerberus but not quite as pretty.
Pluto: I really like this purple very dark and not like anything I own, and I own a lot of purples!
Would I buy again?: Maybe. The shadows seem to be pretty hit or miss, some are standard while some are really neat. I am considering getting full sizes of Mercy, Pluto, Diego, and Cactus Sun, but I'm still a little miffed at having my e-mails ignored.
I also went ahead and bought all the supplies from TKB, including the same palette, to press the shadows myself.
