TKB Trading’s Travel to Jupiter

This is a true duochrome interference mica. It's the ingredient that causes the colorshifting effects in <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/pure_luxes_illusion/”>Pure Luxe's Illusion</a> (added to a silver-mauve base), and I really wish that other MMU companies used this in their products because I love duochrome shadows…but at the price per ounce for this stuff, and the fact that duochromes might have a more limited audience, I can almost reason why they don't. At any rate, I've seen people use this to create frankenpolishes, I've used it as a highlighter and as an overall “colorchanger”, I've added it to a few matte colors I've purchased from this and that vendor.
