This is a great sampler! I love all the colors! You get a lot of product for your money! I would recommend this to anyone!!
This sampler is one of my favorites from my order. You get so much for less than $1 per color! I mixed these with a little Silica and made each one a 'color base' for all of my different formulations. I can't thank Kaila enough for this set!
This sampler's a great selection of basic colors, and is useful for nail polish making - micas produce frosty effects and are more muted, and lake dyes can stain.
There are only two issues with this sampler: I wish the hydrated chromium green was the same amount as the rest (increase the price of the sampler to compensate), since it's a great color and there's an imbalance in my color packets when I shuffle through them ;)
The other issue is that you might have difficulty in getting these to dissolve easily in nail polish: grind them first (coffee grinder or mortar & pestle) and dissolve the amount in either polish thinner (not acetone!) or isopropyl alcohol (preferably) before adding them to polish. This'll really help disperse the pigment in hydrophobic solvents. Oh, and start off with *very small amounts* since the pigments are.... pigmented! ;)
Pressed eyeshadow for the first time today! So much fun! I've only made three so far from this collection. Colors are bright and beautiful! I can't wait to order more and experiment!
Just wanted to say that my order arrived super fast! Only problem is, I ordered the Sampler Cosmetic pigments and did not get the black oxide which was supposed to be included...Not cool! But other than that I got my pigments...
I loved the colors and tablespoon was more than enough for a sample. However, the orange oxide (the color I needed the most) was in a broken bag which spread to the outside of the other bags, so now all my packaging is stained orange and I'm out at least 1/4 tsp.
