TKB Trading Haul 3

YAY! TKB Trading Haul #3! . I think i have almost all the powdered colorants TKB trading has that I will wear by now. Before i placed the orders, I promised that this will be my final TKB trading haul until, at least August of something.
The exchange rate is crazily high so i decided to try VPOST instead of the usual international shipping. TKB was having a promotion where orders over USD100 gets free domestic shipping. So Only had to pay for vpost shipping. I would have switched to Vpost long ago had i known this. I was hesitant because I've heard about so many mishaps and poor CS of VPOST. I know there are other companies, but they are more difficult/troublesome to work with as compare to Vpost. The actual weight of the whole package was 2.6kg. I requested for Compact packing and the tkb trading staff really packed the items VERY tightly. Not to the extend of spoiling the items, but its obvious she/he was thoughtful when packing.

Good Customer service definitely makes me more willing to spend and TKB's has been great so far. Although they are one of the few companies that doesn't give any freebie/discount / the likes for bulk orders.
These are what's in the package! I still have some 10g jars that i didn't include here. Did i mention before TKb 's very generous with their samples? USD1.50 for 1 tablespoon which fills a 20g jar with no sifter. And they use high quality ziplock bags which are really sturdy and not flimsy. Even if I don't move my powders in to jars, the ziplocks will last me a long time if i were to dip my brushes in there.

These are my own. I didn't include the base powders because they are all white in color. I love the pigments. I got some matte pigments this time and some oxides. The Oxides are in the small round pans that tkb call "Cutie Pies". The stacked jar at the side are micro fine glitter powders that's safe to use on the eyes. I intented to use them to line my eyes. However I'll need to buy some foiling liquid for that, glycerin mix just does not seem to hold the glitter well and long enough.

Now here's my updated TKb trading Pigment collection. In an older post i posted a pic of my collection as well. Just that now i am onto my 2nd layer in the box :) Previously i just had a full single layer.

Here's my little army of pigments :) The smaller jars on the outside are the oxides and premium pigments. I'll list out all the colors so in case it'll be of use :)
TKB's pigments are powders, mostly very powderym loose and shimmery. However there are some powders which "cakes" together more, as in less powdery (in a good way). It's like how some loose foundation tend to be more "cakey" as compared to loose finishing Powders
Oxides are matte and also tend to be thicker and more clumpy and pressable.
~ = clumpy powder
` = Sheen finish, not shimmery nor matte
" = Slight metallic finish
- = less shimmery than average
* = Super Shimmery
^ = Matte
: = teaspoon sample

Another picture with no flash for comparison. Personally think these pictures are really quite accurate. I hope I will be able to hold for long enough from ordering again from TKB. I have too much! and I'm not even really using them.
