TKB Trading’s Matte Pop collection

TKB Trading’s Matte Pop collection

These are ready-to-wear colors! You don’t have to mix them with other ingredients to keep them from falling off your face. (It can help…but it’s not required, as is the case with straight micas or oxides.) I like the shades in these collections, and they’ve got pretty good coverage when applied wet, or to a still-damp base. Applied over regularly-applied primer, they can lose a little intensity.

Makeup Revolution’s Iconic 1 Redemption palette

Makeup Revolution’s Iconic 1 Redemption palette

Makeup Revolution’s answer to Urban Decay’s various Naked palettes were the Iconic Redemption palettes. The color matches are fairly close. I don’t know how the eyeshadow quality compares, because I don’t own any of the UD palettes. But I can say that at USD$10 or below, these are a decent value - fairly good, for drugstore-range makeup.
