EOTD TKB's Virgo eyeswatch

Here's an eye swatch from yesterday featuring TKB's Virgo, cool beige metallic, destined to be very versatile and wearable. I used it dry without primer and it took 6 hours and a sauna(!) to crease. A pure mineral mixture, this one. Teaspoon sample.

Today it was the Cancerian Heat - a marvellous brownish purple color based on dark red. I cant really describe it, to me it seems it has tiny-tiny sparkles of every color and some golden sheen. I think that this color could be based on the Crucible Red pigment.  I applied the same color wet as liner. This is one of those colors that can be used mono but look as if someone's been very hard at picking colors and blending them away to get a flawless look. Please ignore the fallout under the right eye.
I was a bit wary when I put it in the shopping cart but I really like this one.  Cancerian Heat is not pure MMU pigment, it contains a lake dye called Black #2 and something called glycidoxphenol propane/ bisaminomethylnorbornane copolymer. This here is the only Zodiac color containing this ingredient that DOES stick to the lid surface. As one may recall Sagittaire, Taurus Orion and Capricorn Sea fail to do so.

I also used Gemini as blush but somehow it's invisible on both pics (slight golden pink irl). Gemini is an ordinary blush, not pure MMU at all - containing parabens, lake dyes and bismuth oxychloride - your basic everyday blush sold on in every shop. It's supposedly the dupe for the famous Nars Orgasm but I cannot confirm as never owned one. This product is ready mixed to be pressed.

I think your wallet must hate me by now :D; Cancerian Heat is very much worth having. It contains the infamous Aluminium powder (looks like silver) which TKB had in their inventory but cant ship internationally (this powder may explode in shipping) but when mixed with other stuff it's harmless.

These looked lovely swatched but SO much better on your eyes! And it's great that they're so long lasting!
