The compositions of dry and liquid shadows differ from each other. Dry shadows contain talc, clay, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide. Talc is most often replaced by prescription mica - it is believed that it clogs the skin.

Pencils have in their composition more firmly interconnected components. Commonly used are paraffin, wax mixtures, stearic acid, lanolin. Creamy options are made on the basis of castor, olive and other vegetable oils. Liquid options sometimes contain alcohol. Organic compounds and mineral components are used as pigments.

Shelf life
