If you're like me and have a more sallow undertone, reds can be tricky when making foundation. A few years ago I tried adding Mursaski in place of some of my red oxides and WHOA! What a difference! Now all my foundations/concealers/finishing powders have this in varying degrees and match my coloring perfectly!

Strong and vibrant pigment - great in lippies. Will be buying more before TKB runs out.
Finely ground, lush, warm-toned medium deep lilac pigment. The yellow undertone adds a brightness to this pigment that saves from having to add a lightener that could cool the shade unnecessarily. I added it straight from the bag into my translucent pigment base and was impressed with the results enough to order another pound- I just got this one. It may cost more than other basic pigments, but it can be used for eye and lip products unlike most of the blues making it more versatile. This shade also seems to blend out to a bright purple rose/pink shade on certain skin shades though it's still a straight warm purple. Fabulous for a bright lipstick for deep skintones and eye/face products for golden and neutral-warm skintones.
I bought this to create a couple shades of purple and it worked amazing. I was able to match a customer's eye shadows perfectly (they were very happy!) and then turned around and used it with Piccadilly Red to make more of a pink/red blush for beige skin. This color makes warmer tones with hint of pink to it. I recommend it for mixing purples, pinks, and reds. Thanks, TKB!
This color has a fantastic cool pink glow to it, which works well in violet tones. What surprised me was how versatile this color could be when mixed with complementary tones. I mix this with green apple to get a great funky mauve base for eyeshadows, and a bit of Aztec gold in addition creates a stunning rose gold color. Experiment with this one! It's absolutely worth it.
