All of the entries for the year 2020 were completed before March 2020. Most items were bought in, or before, 2019. And so, despite the pandemic where buying makeup is definitely a lower priority, I'm still publishing these posts.
TKB Trading’s Vivid Canary

Unlike some of TKB’s mattes, this mixes well with water. It’s hard to get the balance right, though: too much and you end up with a shadow that shows any brush strokes, a little less than that and it’s harder to mix. Once applied and dried down, it isn’t the easiest color to blend. I get results I’m happier with if I blend other colors into this one, instead of the other way around.

I do love the color, though! TKB shows it as not being eye-safe in the US, but as eye-safe in the EU. I’m going with the EU ruling and declaring this a perfectly good eye color smile
