TKB Trading’s Travel to Mars

This is a true duochrome interference mica. It's the ingredient that causes the colorshifting effects in <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/pure_luxes_faceted/”>Pure Luxe's Faceted</a> (added to a warm mauve-red 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, and once I used it on my lips under a clear buxom (Dominique). I got glitter and colorchanging.

This is one of the more obvious colorshifters in the Interplanetary Traveller mica collection. Along with Travel to Earth, this even shows some of its iridescence in the dry potted powder.
