TKB Trading’s Red Oxide

I got this kind of on a whim. I knew that any oxide - that is, pure colorant either minimally adulterated by other ingredients or not diluted at all - would have extremely good color payoff. I wasn’t sure how good its staying power would be, though. It’s just barely warm in some lighting, more of an orange-red in others. I could probably use this as a lip color. I ended up applying it slightly dampened with facial primer, over eyeshadow primer, and it stayed in place fairly well.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeshadow in the pot; top right, the eyeshadow mixed with water and applied to bare skin; bottom left, the eyeshadow applied dry over primer.

This is colorant with minimal additives to help with application or adhesion, so while it’s VERY pigmented, it may not stay that way if you apply it the same way you apply your other makeup.
