TKB Trading’s Taurus Orion

The dry application of this color (which is, be reminded, straight mica with no binders) is a nearly semi-translucent medium-deep leaf green with scattered green-gold sparkle. The wet application looks almost metallic. The shadow leans yellow due to the finish, so I have some problems wearing it well. I have to make sure to use it with deeper true neutral colors, so that it pulls cooler.

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 was never part of any “collection” or grouping that TKB Trading released, but I noticed that several of their micas were named after the Western solar zodiac signs, so I group them all in that. (There aren’t colors for Aquarius, Libra, Scorpio, or Aries.)
