Beauty from the Earth’s Last to Know

I did buy this color from BFTE, I know that I did. But now it's gone from the website…???

Well, I guess it doesn't matter much, since I found out when I swatched this one that's it's nearly a dead ringer for TKB Trading's Mermaid's Gold, right down to the faint green iridescent shimmer. Last to Know adheres a bit better than TKB's color - which makes sense, because TKB colors are straight micas with no additives to help it apply more evenly or adhere longer.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

I don't know what happened to this color, but I do know for sure that it was on the BFTE site at one point and I ordered three pots of it. (Possibly the new owner realized, a little late, that it was extremely similar to the BFTE color Mermaid, which carries the note on its page: “This is an unblended mica.” I don't recall seeing that note on Last to Know. I really wish that page was still up, I wouldn't feel as if I was losing my mind.
