pearlescent mica colour - pandora
Think red grape but slightly lighter, this mica colour is a soft, subtle purpley-pink and would be a gorgeous addition to lip balm, glosses and eyeshadows.
This pigment consists of Mica (an earth mineral), which is blended with Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides and Manganese violet to produce a stunning purple-pink.
Interested in selling this mica as an eyeshadow, blusher or highlighter? if you are, we have a special Starter Assessment covering you to do so for this mica and many more, plus you can mix the micas together in any way you wish! For more information, click here.
This gentle, safe and non-toxic colour produces a beautifully subtle shimmering and glittering effect and is ideal for colouring lip balms, glosses, lipsticks, blushers, eyeshadows, soap, bath bombs, creams and more. 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 in lip or body balms, just add the powder straight to the melted mixture and whisk in thoroughly. You may wish to add more oil to the balm as the powder can have a drying effect.
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 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 lip balm/gloss, 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.
