TKB vs Conservatorie: pinks and beiges

Left to right: Gemini, Apple Blossom, Baby Pink Interference, Garnet, Foliage,
Bolero, Peach Fuzz, Shimmering Nude, Angel Wings
Gemini - warm pink with strong golden sparkle
Apple Blossom - light cool pink with slightly golden sheen and strong pink sheen
Baby Pink Interference (Conservatorie) - the question remains, where's the interference? all I see s lots of glitter (note to self - compare this to TKB's Pink Crystal)
Garnet - medium pinkish color, golden? and pink sheen
Foliage - beautiful neutral dark beige with blue? pink? sheen
Bolero (Conservatorie) - reddish orange, pink sheen
Peach Fuzz (Conservatorie) - here more gold then pink, reminds me of Gold Earth
Shimmering Nude (Conservatorie) - beautiful subtle skin colored soft pink
Angel Wings - whitish very light pink color with silvery and soft  purplish sheen, silvery sparkle
Conservatorie and TKB pinks, pic taken in daylight

and with the good camera

Similar colors:

Gold Earth (Conservatorie) - looks golden pink in the jar but it's actually a smooth muted gold
Peach Fuzz (Conservatorie) - pinkish beige, gold sheen
Apricot Mica - seems to be a dead ringer for Gold Earth with the exception of the latter being more on the yellow side, Apricot has a slightly more orange base

These colors look similarly toned in their containers but aren't similar at all:


Winter Rose - looks beige, turns out purply pink
Pink (green) Interference (Conservatorie) - smooth cool nude (love this color)
Artisan Coral - looks neutral but actually is more like a peach color, strong bronze sheen
Ivory Lace - medium sheen neutral ivory, small sparkles
Salmon Interference (Conservatorie) - high sheen neutral beige
Peach Fuzz (Conservatorie) - pinkish gold, beautiful sheen
Dusty Rose - strong bronze sheen, looks nothing like when in jar, darker  and slightly more reddish then Artisan Coral

artificial light
and with the good camera, in fading daylight
I have used some colors in different swatch "mugshots" and depending on their company, they always get a different description. Funny that.

Conservatorie is just like TKB Trading or Coastal Scents - all wholesalers :)
I have no micas from CS so I cannot compare - but the tones usually differ a bit, I have found very few exact dupes. I guess they get their supplies from different manufacturers.
