There’s a saying among painters, that “blue travels.” Use just a little bit of blue in a project, you’ll find it all over the place. Same holds true for this color! This is very very blue. So very blue. Just a tiny bit mixed with water yields a vivid, intense blue.
I often associate this color with the holidays - this color of red, rather than the holly-berry-red that’s more widely recognized as “Christmas” red. (Don’t ask me why…I’m not entirely sure myself.) This polish has a good formula. It applies easily and is pretty durable.
Six various shades of pink or rose, all matte finish, and all made with rose hip extract to - allegedly - help strengthen nails. I honestly think that this is like SPF in foundation, though. The presence of this ingredient is a gimmick, because you won’t apply enough polish for the contained rose hip extract to do your nails any substantive good. The polishes also have a rose scent that’s pretty strong.
This is such a cool grey that it’s basically a deep slate. There’s some faint, scattered gold shimmer that adds a subtle bit of color. This was the first color from the Autumn People collection that caught my eye and sucked me right in.
Very good pigmentation levels, and nice even color payoff! I wish that I had swatched this and paid more attention to this before the entire collection was discontinued. I have it in full-size, but I would have loved to promote it better. I have other oranges, but the lean red or brown, or even deep coral.
The color is a slightly-orange leaning creme…and the formula of the one I got was a bit loose. It applied very thick, and when I tried using a brush I still got a lot more product than I intended. Between an off-batch of formula and a color that doesn’t quite work on me, I don’t know that I’ll be reaching for this very often. (I may try to figure out if I can use this as...
I don’t have any shadows that are exactly like this. There’s a deep charcoal base under everything, with flashes of dusty violet, blue, and maroon.
This is a lovely blue! It’s also similar to blues that have been available from many other indie vendors. Some are closer matches than others, some are discontinued, some are only available seasonally. The downside to getting the mica from TKB is that you can’t just apply it like your other loose-powder eyeshadows. You have to use a sealant and a primer, probably even if you don’t normally need them. The upside? It’s always available, and...
