... a wonderful packet arrived from TKB. Not all colors are mine and one of the ordered colors was missing from the order, Coral Reef Blue did not make it to Estonia (got a refund).
Swatches are done wet, no base.
New ones are:
Gemini - TKB's dupe of Nars' Orgasm blush - very nice in person (this, Aquarius and Virgo methinks are the only usable (by me) colors of the Zodiac set, I'm not so sure about Scorpio the Eighth or Cancerian Heat yet - too soon to tell; also have not had the opportunity to try Lovely Leo or Aries (Aries was released in May));
Foliage - interesting a bit brownish color, light pinkish sheen;
Scorpio the Eighth - base is orangeish reddish brown and a blueish gleam on top;
Cancerian Heat - dark red with pink sheen, could also be described as brownish purple;
Virgo - like molten metal, very nice on the lids, a neutral must-have;
Bronce Basics - reminds me of Bronze Fine, intensive and more oreangeish bronze color that does not fade;
Zion Views - sheer gold with greenish tint, I gave this one away cause it looked just like one of the Conservatorie's color Xian Vistas. Too bad that I did not think of comparing it with Mermaid's Gold first;
Colorona Blue - warmish kind of a blue, slight golden sheen in it, one of the more wearable TKB blues;
Libra Blues - to me it's dark matte blue with purplish sheen, a total no-go for me.
Gold Reflecks - glitter, large particles, needs a sticky base - otherwise sheer and very effective. Recommended use as a body glitter.
The other pic is of the same colors some 10 hours later
(remember it's still cold here and therefore I wear long sleeves):
The undertones of each show better when the sparkly stuff and sheens have faded away.
I also got the jojoba oil sample, the pressing kits and pans and a lot of 5 gr per volume jars for the blogsale.
Alumine pilt on huvitav selle poolest, et näitab pigmentide intensiivsust. Selline nägi mu käsi välja järgmisel hommikul... väga vähesed olid täiesti maha kulunud.
