The Desert Nomad Palette
Inspired by our travels through the American Southwest, our signature eye palette features our high-pigment pressed eye color crafted from ethically sourced minerals. We've also added organic shea butter, jojoba oil and coconut oil for a blendable, velvety finish.
• 3 shimmer / 6 matte shades
• The first-ever 100% compostable makeup package
Choose Palette Material:
Our pigment-packed 9 shades deliver as much or as little as you want depending how you build up the color. We designed the 6 matte shades and 3 shimmers to be versatile and allow for lots of play. We've added organic shea butter, jojoba oil, and coconut oil to the formula for a velvety finish, rather than a dry finish.
Made in small batches with partner labs where we oversee the work, It took us over a year to develop our exact formula, taking care to focus on ingredient percentages that are highly pigmented and nourishing. We discovered this versatile collection could also be used as a blush, highlight, and even contour depending on your skin tone.
🌱 Our ingredients are cruelty-free and vegan.

We believe beauty shouldn't come at the cost of trashing our planet. It is the responsibility of brands to do better, not burden customers with figuring out what is truly sustainable and what isn't. This is why we created the first 100% compostable palette, made from organic materials — paper and cork.
+ Our cork palette base is made from high-density recycled cork that is moisture resistant and anti-microbial.
+ Our cork palette is fully backyard compostable as it has no plastic binders.
+ Our up-cycled wood palette option is made from recovered barn wood in Colorado. It can be mulched (no preservatives), crushed down for compost, or recycled with yard cuttings.
+ Our palette case is made with sturdy 100% recycled kraft paper that is fully compostable.
And, we only ship in card board with kraft paper crinkle wrap and we buy carbon offsets for each purchase to make sure your delivery is carbon neutral. Absolutely no plastic wrap or bubblewrap. Zero plastics here!

"The colors work really well on my skin tone, blend easily and have a creamy quality. They stay put all day too."

"This is my new favorite palette. I can go bold or natural depending on what I want. I love that the company is totally sustainable."
Abby, New York
"The color is really strong and it blends easily. I was surprised this was 'clean' "
"It's such a relief to find a makeup brand that cares about the packaging as much as the formula. It's game changing."
Vegan and cruelty-free labeling gives the impression that a cosmetic brand is better and safer. That's not always the case. Here are signs to look for that your vegan makeup...
The confusion about these two descriptions is understandable since they're both about animal welfare.
Cork is both durable and backyard compostable, making it the ultimate choice for a sustainable package.
