A Press Pack is a good starting point if you are interested in pressing your own powdered cosmetics.
Each Press Pack includes: Nine Tin Pans; Two Press Tiles; One Tamper Tool to help tamp down and press powders.

Here is some general info about the items in this set:
Tin Pans. The nine pans are made of tin (not aluminum) which means that they cling to the magnetic base of our palette and also that they are able to withstand pressure from the pressing action better than the aluminum pans.
Pressing Tiles are pieces of acrylic plastic which have been machine cut to perfectly nest inside our pans. They come to you covered in a protective sheet of brown paper, which you should remove prior to pressing. If you have been using a coin to press your powders, our Pressing Tiles are used in a similar manner. Additionally, you may use a c-clamp or vise grip to press the tile into the powder and pan.
A Tamper Tool is a Pressing Tile with a handle attached. We use it to tamp down the first two layers of powder, as well as to make that last final press. In fact, we often use the Tamping Tool only in our projects, and never use a pressing tile.

I was very impressed at the kit and the way it was put together. Everything was packaged so beautifully! It's easy and fun, and you have everything you need. Get the kit- you won't be sorry!!
I've played around with this kit a lot from the time that i first got it. There is just endless things you can do with it! I've made about 8 wheels and filled a couple 5 gram jars. I haven't bought any more base because a little goes a long ways when using the pre made colors. I don't fill each slot to the top, about 2 or so grams (if you cut your base/lipstick in to 8 pieces each piece is around 1 gram) or so will fill one slot up half full which is more than enough product to last a while. I think the only thing I didn't really like was that the base was a little stiff for a palette style lipstick, but that is easily fixed buy adding oils or whatever you like to soften it up a bit because the clear base itself is stiffer than the pre made colors so if you are creating your own colors aside from the ones that come in the kit something to soften the the base is a good idea.
Perfect to start out with. I've made over 100 lippies & tri-lippies and I've only had to buy extra containers and base. The lipstick color bases and the basics are plenty for TONS of colors.
