TKB Trading’s Green 7

This…is different. It’s tiny balls of concentrated pigment. Try to apply them dry, and…well, you can see how non-great that looks. You just get tiny grains of whatever spread over whatever surface you try to brush, sweep, or pat it on to. Add just a tiny bit of mixing medium, though, and you get a pretty bright luxurious slightly blue-leaning green.

The color pulls a bit…muddier than I expected from the professional artwork (which is, admittedly, often a bit off) and from the online swatches.  I was expecting a more neutral shade. There’s a little more yellow, and a little more grey, than I thought there might be. I can possibly use this as an accent or background color.

I was interested in this particular group because of the blue and green. They don’t seem to coordinate with the rest of the set to form some sort of unified palette; and I can get two trios out of these eyeshadows. I like each of these colors individually, but I generally use them with shades other than the ones in this grouping.

A lovely shade…with not a whole lot of color payoff. It just doesn’t want to stay put. It’s possible that with the right combination of primer and mixing medium, you’d be able to come close to the base shade. But just applying this by itself…I wasn’t impressed with the results. (Which stinks, because it’s a terrific shade!)

Another interference color, in the same group as Sunrise Shift. I’m still working to figure out how to best use these, for me. They sort of work as highlighters, sort of work as an effects-layer eyeshadow, but the interference shift - the interesting part of this color - is fairly soft.

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Pink lip cream in Enchanted

I was hoping for a slightly deeper shade with a little bit more coral. This is pretty pink, though. It’s not a color I will reach for often because it’s so light, it’s not a shade that I prefer. The coverage is solid, and it doesn’t bleed, so people who like this shade of pink are very much in luck.

I have some pale golds in my collection, and I have some very soft silvers. I don’t have any colors that are a combination of the two, though, so I bought this in full-size just this past December. There’s enough color payoff for this to work as a standalone color. I’ve also used it as a highlighter. I haven’t tried using it as a liner, though…I probably should. It’s got an “antique”, patinaed appearance...

Nice cool-ish light taupe. Only required two coats for full coverage.
