TKB Trading blues

I suspected that Simply Naturals sells repackaged TKB mica so I'll add their colors here as well. I do not like blues... they add years to me and make me look cheap. But - in combination with other colors they are doable. All swatches done wet over ELF primer.

Simply Naturals' Saphire - a small tester baggie of blueness
Simply Naturals' Mulberry - insanely pigmented dark blue, stains
Simply Naturals' Ice - bland, no character, boring
Totally Teal - pretty but not for me
Ocean Green - nice elegant, very strong golden sheen
Pisces Blue - almost Ocean Green but very sparkly, needs primer.
Capricorn Sea - does not stick, base is the same as Mulberry's - these two left dark stains on my arm
Indian Blue - greenish sheen, true peacock
Blueberry - Bright blue
Grape Parfait - it was the bluest of purples so added it here too
Simply Naturals' Smurf - not as purple as Grape Parfait but has purple sheen in it.

The Simply Naturals' blues are up for grabs for anyone who pays the postal fee.

And now i'm in love with Mulberry :))
I have to stop to watch TKB swatches.
By the way, i tried Taurus Orion yesterday, dry, wet, with glycerine and water and nothing worked :( I don't know what to do with it, it's really disappoiting.
On the other side, Sparkle Rose worked very well. There's something i can't understand here !

Lets just admit to ourselves that some pigment-mixtures just plain suck when used on their own :D. Make a nail-polish out of it, I think that's how it was meant to be used.

Mulberry is from Simply Naturals, I'm not sure what it's TKB name is. I have not bought many blues from TKB - most are greens, golds and browns.

Thank's :)
I think i will make a nil polish with it or a creepy lipstick (i don't remember if it's allowed for the lips) for halloween...
So sad for such a beauty...

Oooh, pisces blue is such a beautiful vibrant colour. I'm in love :) *note to myself: no more beautyblogs *lol*

I can't get the Pisces Blue out of my mind. Do you want to swatch with something else or can I just buy it from you? This colour looks too good...

Luve said...
