pearlescent mica colour - aquarius
Aquarius is probably best described as a sea green which is almost iridescent in nature.
It rubs out more towards the blue side with a wonderful green undertone and makes a stunning eyeshadow colour.
EU Regulation: Approved for use in all cosmetics without restriction apart from lip products.
Would make a great addition to eyeshadows, bath bombs, creams, soap and more (testing with CP is recommended first as we can't guarantee compatibility). You can even use it for liquid soap / gels but, as with all powdered pigments, they will sink to the bottom if the consistency is not thick enough.
All our Mica Colours and Glitters are sourced ethically, with no use of animal testing or child labour.
How to use
To use, just add the powder straight to your mixture and mix in thoroughly.
Alternatively, you can add the colour to some glycerine to form a paste, then add it to your products.
You can add the colour straight to our Base Creams & Lotions
, and it will mix in well as long as you stir in thoroughly. You may need to use a whisk though.
You can use this gorgeous colour on its own as an eyeshadow.
The dosage to use in your products completely depends on the product you're making. For a tinted product, you need roughly 5-10 grams of colour per 100g of product. The more you add, the more the colour will transfer. So always add less for a coloured balm that you don't want to transfer onto the skin that much, and more for higher pigmentation.
