About 2 months ago my girlfriend and i made a huge order from TKB Trading. When it arrived we were so excited, the stuff is amazing!
Ok so we got:
1 pound of lipstick base.
17 1/2 fl. oz bottles of liquid lip colourants
40 10 gram jars
5 samples of glitter (these arrived in a brilliant set of stacker jars, which we were not billed for!)
22 samples of mica
3 samples of pigments
and 1 planetary sampler, which contains 7 samples of colour-shifting mica.
A TKB Sample is huge. For $1.50 you get over a full tablespoon of mica or pigment. There are a few exceptions to this though, for instance in the planetary micas we got the sample is a full teaspoon because these colours cost more to produce. But
And all of this, including shipping to the UK came to less than $150, which is about £90. So seeing as we were sharing we paid less than £45 each. To me this is AMAZING value. We have been playing with the lipstick base (will post some pictures tomorrow, but at the moment we are having some problems getting them to be opaque) and using the jars to make our lipstcks in, at a guess i think the 1 pound of lipstick base we bought could fill about 50 of the 10 gram jars!
The mica powders are beautiful and can be used as eyeshadow on their own or mixed with a base (which is going on my next order) to make them last better and adhere more. The glitter is stunning and will be a brilliant in lipsticks and eyeshadows and everything!
I LOVE TKB
