TKB Trading’s African Violet Matte

TKB Trading’s African Violet Matte

Posted on Thursday, at

This is almost right on the borderline between blue-violet and violet-blue. It’s an unblended matte colorant, so it requires special measures to stay on…and it may not blend as easily or apply as smoothly as most eyeshadows that people are interested in. It also doesn’t layer well. I personally recommend a damp (foiled) application with whatever mixing medium you prefer. It applies more easily and evenly, and doesn’t look chalky or crumbly.
