TKB Trading’s After Twilight

This color is very, very close to Twilight Green - but without the hints of blue. The result is a straight evergreen with the faintest shimmer, nearly a soft pearl finish rather than an all-out shimmer. This is another shade like True Green, in that it almost looks matte. And this from a straight mica, which usually is fairly shimmery!

The color isn't quite dark enough to easily be used as a liner shade, unless you aren't using any other dark colors on your lids. You'd probably need to go over the applied liner with something to help intensify it, and help it keep its definition through the day. (And, hey, that might be my next experiment: using this color as a liner. I often cheat and use Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy as a base for my loose-powder liner shades. That stuff really grabs and holds tight.)

The green is on the cooler side, but not so cool that warm-toned people would have a severe problem wearing it (as long as it's paired with the right warm neutrals or cooler golds.) You could also pair this up with Twilight Green, but if you have overt warm undertones, be careful of the blue in that shade. It might not be a good combination unless your undertones are cool or neutral. There's not much finish whether applied dry or wet; but the color is solid. You'll need some kind of a base or primer with this one, since this is a straight mica with no added ingredients to improve adhesion.
