Kryolan Eye Shadows- a Review

Well I 've heard a lot of things about Kryolan UV palettes and watercolors etc...but there's no information about the regular kryolan shadows.
I was lucky to be given some of them as a gift and I'm really impressed.
Their price is about 8 euros in Greece (including discount) and they're sold for 4,5-5 Euros in Germany.
Here's a picture of my mac palette which includes mac and kryolan regular shadows:
 From left to right:
1st row :Kryolan Beige G, Kryolan Oak, Mac Trax, Mac Swish, Mac Satin Taupe, Mac Parfait Amour
2nd row: Mac carbon, Mac Sketch, Mac Tilt, Mac Yogurt, Mac Phloof, Mac Plumage, Mac Patina
3d row: Kryolan blush in ??? (unfortunately I don't have the name of this), Kryolan shadows in Dusk, 517, Harmony, Coffee

Some of the Kryolan shadows are named, some have numbers.
The texture differs among them.Some are hard and chalky but pigmented, others are buttery and soft, some are extra powdery.There's a slight fallout in some of them (Coffee for instance is a beautiful colour but I need a tiny bit as it's extra pigmented and fall-out-y).One weird thing...they smell like baby powder!!!!!!!!!Here are some pics with swatches to get an idea:
Kryolan Dusk , Kryolan Harmony

Kryolan Coffe, Oak

I find that the quality-quantity-price combination is pretty good, I've used these shadows with a primer underneath (Too Faced Shadow Insurance , Artdeco Eyeshadow Base) and they lasted a long time.They're all pigmented, they smell amazingly and are quite blendable.
I intend to buy more of these in the future as they are of good quality for the price.

XoXo :D

These look great, but it's strange that they smell like baby powder! :)

I love using the Kryolan Setting Powder, it's really good in controlling the oilies.

@Gejba Parokeets :The normal refills, they're quite big...They're 2.5grams while mac eye shadows are 1.5grams.I don't know about the sizes of aqua color (they work with water) and supracolor (cream colors) though.. :) Thanks for stopping by :D
