I've used a lot of TKB's jars, and while I can't recommend their stackable 20 gram jars for repotting (they're not big enough and the pigment tends to get stuck a bit in the grooves), their sample-sized jars are nice. The clear jars with the screw top lids are really nice, and in fact, most of the mineral make-up companies use these jars for their pigments and samples. The "cutie pies" are nice, too; I mostly use them for making my own lipglosses, as the pop-up lid can make pigment fly out.

I've ordered jars from coastal scents twice. For the price..i guess you're getting a good deal, but i've found the quality of the jars isn't the best. a lot of the lids don't screw on to the jar very well. i had a small amount of pigment in my makeup bag, and i ALWAYS screw my caps on tightly, and the cap came loose and spilled all over my stuff.

i use them when i sound out pigment samples, but i seal it with tape to make sure it doesn't open up and spill everywhere.

mac just changed their sample jars
they're just like coastal scents jars now! i miss the old mac jars..damn.

i'm on the hunt for jars, too!

I always get mine from bluestarlightenterprises99 on Ebay. Tami is sooo nice and she ships incredibly fast. I don't even think she waits for payment to be cleared, thats how trusting she is. I go back to her over and over again.
