Simply Natural's... for cheapo's like me :D

Simply Natural's was the first source of cheap piggies I discovered. A lot of their inventory comes from (it's a guess, I could be wrong) TKB Trading  but Tina makes custom blends too. Pics are not helpful at all and descriptions... lets say people see colors differently. I made 2-3 purchases and by now I have given most of them away to friends. I bought colors that were not for me (beware the awful orangeness of Shock - matte orange). The good ones that I still use are Cafe Satin, Sandlewood, Heliotrope, Twilight, sometimes Primrose as sparkly blush.

The reason I bring it up - I thought the eBay store has raised the prices by a third but a closer look revealed that the price has only gone up by the amount of shipping (that was usually some 4,5 USD) - now they offer free international shipping :D.

The 99 cent auctions are gone :S though. I think she's putting more emphasize on her web store. She has started offering foundations (nothing for pale gurls though) and veils etc. She also used to offer palettes but those are gone now (she pressed her piggies into palettes). I'm sad to say those are no longer available.

Last but not the least, definitely not least is the link to My Beauty Imprint, who ordered a huge haul from Simply Natural's and took the trouble to swatch them all. Kudos!

NB! Need pole valmissegatud lauvärvid vaid enamuses kõik poolfabrikaadid, Simply Natural's on repacker. Kuna kõik ei vaja ka kotitäit pigmenti, siis on tema töö ümberpakkijana vägagi tore ainult et tooted vajavad meigialuskreemi, eriti igasugused särapulbrid. Topsid on 5 gr per volume, kilesse pakitud ning minu meelest odavad ning saatmiskulu taskukohane. Näiteks TKB-l on miinimumtellimus ca 20 USD ning shipping veel 10-14 USD otsa. Meie siin aga peame arvestama käibemaksupiiriga, mis on 22 eurot ehk siis 344 kohalikku tugrikut ning Simply Natural's seega tore käibemaksuvaba ostukoht. Kätte saab küll koguseliselt vähem (teelusikatäis vs supilusikatäis) kui TKB'st aga see-eest juba purgikestesse pakitult. Toonide väljavalimine on keeruline, tuleb googeldada ja swatche otsida, et õigest toonist aimu saada..
