Yes, they are more expensive but that is because they are more beautiful. Seriously unlike anything you have every seen. Not glittery but a true and vibrant metallic. You don't even need to foil them but if you do it is out of this world pretty. My favorite colors ever!!!!!!!!
I bought these once in the 2.5g sample baggies. I used them up so fast and almost cried when they were gone.I just ordered a ounce of them and just waiting for them to be delivered so I can play with them. They are well worth the money because there is nothing on the makeup market that can come close to any of these metallic colors! My favorite thing in the world to do is make makeup and tkb has everything I need and more for my hobby. I love giving it to all my friends and family for gifts,they are so happy and amazed I can make that for them.
Sure these pigments are rather pricey but totally worth it! A little goes a long way as the color payoff is fantastic; I find these aren't translucent as some of the other micas. And if you are looking for the rich metallic gold look without being too "glittery" these are it! You MUST buy the whole set!!!
These are beautiful colors and are true metallics. I wish they had a silver metallic one to mix in with colored micas to make other metallic colors. Its a bummer that these dont work well with nail polish.
I love the crucibles! Anyone trying to dupe the very popular metallic shadow, look no further. These have a sheen that mica can't always duplicate, plus they adhere so well, that base ingredients that lighten aren't really necessary to have a great color with staying power. They are pricey, but worth it. I haven't even seen how much I can do with these, yet!
I know you think these are gorgeous, but you have no idea! They are so richly colored, and have such depth that there will probably never be a technology invented that can photograph them.
