Silly Farm switching Lumiere Pallets

Post by Denise Cold on Thu May 24, 2012 2:06 pm

FYI:
I was checking SillyFarm for Lumiere refills and they are switching over to the Coastal Scents type pallets with the click-in refills. They have divided the pallets into metallics and brights and are charging about $54.00 for 8 colors. The refills shown are for the click-in style and not the metallic pallet that most of us have.

I'm not really even close to using up my pallet, but I do want to be able to get a few refills on my old pallet and keep it going a few years. There are a few makeup places out there that still have the old style.

Ben Nye makes them NOT Silly Farm. Of course there are still suppliers.

Well, there are a couple of reasons I mentioned it. One, it's hard to tell that the refills aren't the ones for the old pallet...I had to ask SF because it wasn't apparent. Two, they are charging only six dollars less and giving 4 colors less which are $10.75 to replace so that's $34.00 in value lost. So if Ben Nye is switching to the new style and charging that much more, it might behoove those using the old pallet to stock up a bit rather than switch over. Hope that explains my reasoning a bit more.

Dang it, Denise... what are you, a walking math logic girl wonder? I have to count on my fingers and toes and you come up with the total break-down on everything.

I'm actually pretty bad at math but I'm good at being cheap. But sometimes "Lo barato sale caro" the cheap can come out expensive as Judge Milian says on People's Court. I don't want to buy replacements that would just sit in my closet for years. See, it might just be better to buy a whole tin pallet because the colors are about $5.25 each when you buy the whole set for $63.00 vs $9.00 for a replacement color plus I would have to pay shipping for the replacements instead of just adding a tin to a paint order. (Honestly, I don't like the magnetic pallets that much because they spin around in the container...even though they do look better.)

But...is it worth buying a pallet to save $30 when it might take me 2-3 years to use it up? Arrgh. I'm so tired of trying to make FP decisons. I think my brain is painted out today.

You can also go to Coastal and buy a bottle of mixing liqued and a small bag of loose color and make your own...that's what did. I think each color bag was about $2.00 or less. They are really easy to make. I got the directions on here somewhere.

Suzy, do you have this? It says matte, not shimmery, so I'm assuming it performs more like Starblends? I am looking for more options for powder base color, since Starblends is limited... I wish they would make several different shades of the blue, green, red, etc....

The Ben Nye 2013 catalogue has the same packaging as always.

Just because Silly Farm is sourcing their products from another supplier doesn't mean the products you bought are now gone.

I got a whole pallet of Coastal during the holiday sale and they aren't as saturated so I put them in my makeup drawer. They don't go on bright like the Ben Nye.

I made my own after reading the pressed mica powder thread. The white spidey eyes on my avatar are from the palette I pressed. I consistently use the black and white for around the eyes, especially on boys! Way worth the $40 output for a beginner imho.

Denise, I'm at FABAIC now and they have the old-style palettes. Do you want me to CP one for you and mail it? They are going for $60 at the convention. I can also ask around for additional Ben Nye dealers here if you just want refills.

That's okay, Gilded. JestPaints has them for $63.00 still. I'm just wondering if I'll use a backup or if it will sit on my shelf for ages. You are so sweet to offer though.

I'm totally jealous about FABAIC...I swear I'm going next year. Have you liked it so far? I'm a little worried that it's so body painting oriented.
