TKB Mixes!

So, I received the TKB Trading Co.  EZ Eyeshadow Kit for Christmas and I have to say that I love it a lot. For those of us not looking to get into the commercial side of making eyeshadow (yet...who knows what could happen?), it is very fun to play with! For those of you who don't know of what I speak, you can find the kit here.

Anyways, I thought I would show off the eight colors that I've mixed together so far. I pretty much love all of them (minus the baby blue...I think it is too much of the base and not enough of the actual colors...but you learn as you go, right?)

These are the shadows as they look in the 5 gram jars. I haven't even used 1/4th of my supply and I made EIGHT shadows that filled the jars to the top!

Inside, no flash. 

Inside with flash. 

Here are better close ups of each row. 

I swatched these over Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Normally I think this primer is too greasy for my eyelids, and I end up with creases (because my lids get greasy enough on their own), but it came with the Enchanted Glamourland palette that I have from Too Faced so I might as well use it for something! For my eyes I stick with the Urban Decay Primer Potion, even though the packaging does suck. 

My favorite color is either the dark teal from the first row, or the gold in the bottom row. 

Thanks for looking! Let me know what you think about the colors.
