Palette D'Antoinette sounds interesting--I'll have to check that one out.
I hear you on the price--the only way I brought myself to going through with the purchase was because I needed to finish a gift card, but man it was worth it. The pigments are amazingly potent, long lasting, and there is very little fallout. They're pretty rare colors as well, so I'm definitely happy. If ever you have the disposable income one day, you should consider it!
