pearlescent mica colour - sangria
A gorgeous pinky-red colour, with an awesome metallic effect! Gorgeous in eyeshadows but even more stunning in lipsticks and it makes a very pretty addition to blushes.
A rich deep red with violet undertones and metallic effect. Some of our coloured micas that are metallic in nature are also lower in micron size which in turn gives them much higher coverage. This not only makes them stunning in eyeshadows and lipsticks but quite spectacular in a nail polish base.
This gentle, safe and non-toxic colour produces a beautifully subtle shimmering effect and is ideal for colouring lip balms, glosses, lipsticks, blushers, eyeshadows, soap (testing is advised in CP soaps first), bath bombs, creams and more. You can even use it for liquid soaps / gels but, as with all powdered pigments, they will sink to the bottom if the consistency is not thick enough.
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.
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.
