TKB Trading’s Travel to Venus

This is a true duochrome interference mica. It's the ingredient that causes the colorshifting effects in <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/pure_luxes_prismatic/”>Pure Luxe's Prismatic</a> (added to a light lavender 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. It's most definitely a cooler shade, so it won't work so well in lip colors (at least, not lip colors that I'd prefer to wear.)
