TKB Trading’s Travel to Mercury

This is a true duochrome interference mica. It's the ingredient that causes the colorshifting effects in <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/pure_luxes_visions/”>Pure Luxe's Visions</a> (added to a brown base…or this may be the whole of the color - the mica itself is so colorsaturated that it isn't easy to determine). I 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 both a color (and an eyeliner) an overall “colorchanger”, I've added it to a few matte colors I've purchased from this and that vendor.
