Travel To Mars
Travel To Mars is a mica coated with titanium dioxide (a whitener), Silica, and Tin Oxide. Looking at it in the bag, it appears to be a white powder.
When you rub the powder between your fingers, you will note that it is exceptionally soft and smooth (thanks to the silica). You will also see the whiteness disappear as it bursts into a bright, shiny fuchsia red/pink glow.
If you rub the powder across a piece of white paper with black background and tilt the paper, you will see a subtle shift from red into coppers and golds. This is the color-shift in action.
Mars is excellent in nail polishes and lip products, as well as any kind of translucent cosmetic such as clear soap, shampoo, or bath gel.
Here are the guidelines for "best use":
◦*Use the color alone or in with small amounts of dark colors such as blue, black or green
◦*Use in transparent, translucent or semi-opaque formulas (for example: lip gloss, not lip stick)
◦*Mix it gently (avoid grinding it in a mortar and pestle or blender)
◦*Package in transparent packaging to show off the color shifting
