Make Up For Ever vs. Kryolan

I have been lusting after the Make Up For Ever Flash Color Palette for a long time now. I have not been able to justify purchasing one for $95 from Sephora but it is on my Christmas list to Santa this year. So I am waiting on what I think may be a pretty good substitute. Kryolan's theatrical makeup palette in FP1. I bought mine on ebay from an authorized reseller for $28 plus shipping and handling.Lets compare the colors in both. Make Up For Ever:
Gold 004 (metallic gold), Coral 002 (vibrant coral), Turquois
e 000 (light turquoise), Fuchsia 005 (bright fuchsia pink), Yellow 013 (vibrant yellow), Brown 023 (dark brown), Silver 003 (metallic silver), White 010 (pure white), Red 017 (bright red), Bright Blue 014 (bright royal blue), Leaf Green 008 (bright green), and Black 011 (pure black).

White - 070, Orange - 288, Yellow - 509, Hot Pink - R21, Blue - Blau 10, Iris - R27, Teal - TK2, Green - Gr42, Orange/Red - 079, Red - 081, Black - 071, Gold -metallic gold.

The main difference I see is that with the Kryolan I don't get a silver or brown. Although I can mix the colors to make brown, so I am only really out the silver and I get to save a bunch of money.

My Kryolan palette is on it's way so as soon as it is here and I get to try it I will follow up with more details. I am not taking the Make Up For Ever off my Christmas List just yet. :-)
