TKB vs Conservatorie: greens

Golden Green (Conservatorie) - vivid bright green with strong golden sheen
China Jade - a bit dirty greenish gold, less bling then Glimmer Green, tone-wise seems same
Cyprus Green - dark green, some golden sparkles but those have disappeared during the pigment pressing (!)
Shamrock Green (Conservatorie) - matte blue-green (reminds me of chromium oxide green but texture is very smooth and swatch easily applied)
Apple Green Pop! - medium green, high sheen
Pennsylvania Green - difficult to swatch, medium green, high sheen
Shamrock Green (TKB) - neutral golden green, very wearable (discontinued)
Green Apple - bright dark yellow with green undertone
Lotsa Lime - dirty yellow, green undertone
Glimmer Green - green gold, strong metallic sheen
made with good camera (daylight)

made with the soapbox (daylight)


in artificial light
NB! When a pigment name is without an indication that it's from Conservatorie, it's from TKB Trading. All swatches are done wet, no primer. Used both cameras because the cheapo shows the colors better while the posh one simply makes better pics :)

PS! Not all TKB greens are represented here, I only dag out the ones more likely to look similar to Conservatorie's pigments.

Rohelised - Golden Green vilk tundub olema Conservatorie'le ainuomane ja Conservatorie Shamrock tundub pigem olema TKB True Green-i laadne matt roheline moodustis. Milline pettumus... TKB Shamrock on üks kantavamaid rohelisi, mida kunagi näinud olen. Kahjuks seda enam ei toodeta.

essence stays on and on and on mascara - my answer:

LiisK: It stays all day long; without smudgeing etc. It's really impressive. Makes a nice volume and a good length. And really easy to remove; you don't need an eyemakeup remover, only warm water!
Was this helpful? Thank you for writing in German, I wish I could do the same in your language.

Good night; have a nice week!

Hi Britta, thanks for the tip - I'll go and check whether they sell it in our stores too. I should be writing more in German, after all I have studied the language through middle and high school. I think the grammar is just too difficult for me.

Hi martina, Thank you for visiting :(, I'll come and visit you too. You have collected some very nice artwork :)
