    Has anyone ever used this? I have just started wearing eyeshadows again and need some new ones. Apparantly these are pretty heavily pigmented and not too expensive, I want the red glitter as well for over lipstick. Looks brill but I would love it if I could hear from some people who had used it.

    I think its american. But they do ship worldwide and the brushes aren't expensive either and I need some! But I'm just wondering whether they are better than say Barry M.

    I wouldnt trust Youtube reviews anyway, a lot of make-up companies pay people to do review of items by giving them free stuff, I mean.. are you gonna write a bad review of someone who is practically giving you free make-up?

    </rant over>

    Im sure the quality is fine. I have never bought anything from this website but I've bought pigments from various website and pretty much all of them have the same quality, pigment is pigment, most eyeshadows consist of mostly colored pigment, with a few fillers through in. As long as you like the colors and the first ingredient is 'mica' theyre gonna work great. Make sure all glitter is eye & lip safe before purchasing.

    That silver and that black looks phenomenal! But yeah, since it's just pigments, I don't think the quality matters that much...you need something to make it stick to your skin, and that's basically more important than the pigment itself.

    No kidding! I am all for a great pigment/glitter, since MAC's selection isn't the greatest, but you have to have a really good base in order to maximize the potential.

    What would you recocmend as a base? I have too faced shadow insurance and its good so far as no creases and my eyeliner doesn't smudge but I don't think its helps the colour intensity so much.

    the modelling images look too heavily photoshopped.

    i wouldnt pay a cent for this stuff until its been on the market longer.

    save your money and buy mac.

    Looks cool.

    I might try it.

    I'll just use Urban Decay's Primer Potion.

    That stuff is the best.

    So cheap or not, it will be fine.

    Try Urban Decay's Primer Potion.

    Helps the intensity and doesn't crease at all.

    Keeps the product on well.

    Lime Crime sell repackaged mica. Here's more info on it: http://www.lipsticksandlightsabers.com/2009/10/will-real-slim-shady-please-stand-up.html

    If you're looking for fun loose eyeshadows that someone has actually put more work into than just stuck a lable on them try Fyrinnae or Pure Luxe. And if you want those exact colors, I suggest you go directly to TKB instead.

    As for intensity: Neither TFSI or UDPP are made to make colors "pop", they are made to make them last. If you want you eyeshadow to show up brighter you could use a color base, like MAC's cream color bases, paintpots, or, my personal cheapo fave, NYX Jumbo pencils. The way I do it with the NYX Jumbo is I smooth on a thin layer of whatever color I want on top of UDPP, before applying eyeshadow.
