Versatile Solutions to Measure Cosmetic Color Pigments and Powders 

Loose and compact cosmetics are manufactured using cosmetic color pigments and powders to create various applications such as eyeshadow, setting powder, and highlighters. Product success requires color harmony within cosmetic color collections, but controlling color is challenging because powders are difficult to measure and can contaminate the instrument. 

To earn brand loyalty, cosmetics must be on-color, every time. X-Rite’s versatile color measurement and quality control solutions empower cosmetic manufacturers to achieve accurate and consistent color for loose and compact powders.
