Paints in tubes and bottles are difficult to 'see' when it comes to making a quick visual conection between the paint inside and the actual paint colour. Paint the bottle or tube top with a dob of the paint inside and you will more easily see what the colour is. the other important thing about this is you see what the colour is when it is dry - usually a few shades darker, and you will see if it is transparent or opaque.
