TKB Trading’s Sweet Tea

The one non-brown in TKB's Café collection…is sort of brown. Ish.

It's a medium-deep muted orange, but not so warm that it's utterly unwearable by folks with cooler coloring. I have worn it as an accent shade and liked the results, when I paired it with other neutrals (both the other shades from Café, and with a medium-light brown and a lighter white-beige for a much more “naturalistic” look.) The near-frost finish can be buffed down a bit. Just be careful to use a good base to hang on to the mica, otherwise you'll end up buffing away the majority of the color.
