For the most part they contain mica, iron oxides and titanium dioxide. Some contain just mica and iron oxide others may contain chromium green or ultramarines. Make sure the color you select may be used for the application you want. For example many of the blues and greens may not be used on the lips.  Ingredients and applications are listed for mica we carry.
