TKB oxides

Got them last year but never got as far as to swatch them. Missing here are  the Blackest Black matte tone (black iron oxide mixed with ultramarine blue, therefore also not lip safe) and Paris Pink matte tone (ultramarines, not to be used on lips), that I have already potted and made use of, one as a black eyeliner and the other one as blush.
Swatches applied dry, no primer: Ochre Iron Oxide, Yellow Oxide, Ultramarine Pink (not lip safe), Chromium Oxide Green (not to be used on lips), Ferric Ferrocyanide (not to be used on lips; never put this one anywhere near acid! ever heard of cyanide gas?), Red Oxide 170, Dark Brown Oxide, Brown Oxide Opps.
Oxides are pigments for making eyeshadows, foundations etc. Not meant to be used as they are - drying, uncomfortable chalky texture. It's recommended to grind them with TKB Tradings eyeshadow base, the result will be a matte product. TKB issued a matte eyeshadow recipe book too, last year. Will come in handy.
They can be used straight (wet) as liners though, very effective. It has been suspected that Simply Naturals' Fern is Chromium Oxide green in undiluted form. I forgot to buy Ultramarine Blue, Manganese Violet and Hydrated Chromium Oxide Green ... :S
