TKB Trading: purples and mauves


First in the row is Simply Naturals's Heliotrope - it's so bright that I think it contains some lake dyes.
Paris Pink Matte Tone - usable as blush
Bishop's Violet - quite a sheer one, bluish sheen
Aster Hue - pinkish sheen
Grape - genuine bright purple
Patagonia Purple - dark gray with purplish sheen
Smokey XXX  - lighter gray with pinkish sheen
Black Amethyst - darker gray base with purplish pinkish sheen
Sagittaire - blueish purple with pink sheen
Grape Parfait - almost blue
Pure Purple - from Edda's set - the most unbecoming color in the collection.
And a look from Sunday featuring Bishop's Violet all over lid and Black Amethyst in the outer V.
Took several pictures but none of them show colors true to life - could be that not enough light. Colors are more vibrant and have more depth IRL. Swatches done in daylight, wet over primer.

Wow Heliotrop is a must have ! I felt in love with this color. Does it blend ok ?

Heliotrope is very intensive, I still have a stain on my arm just from swatching it. But it has nice texture and I think it's blendable when applied carefully. You'll have to check out the Simply Naturals e-bay store to get it though, I have not seen it in TKB stash.
