    I am placing my order with TKB and I am stumped with this white shimmer mica Marie mentions.

    Marie, which white Mica from TKB would you recommend? or anyone else that has bought already what shade name did you buy?

    I don’t recall a white shimmer mica mentioned in her book. Is this a recipe on her website? It may just be silver mica you need.

    in her blog post of the things needed for the book this is what is written:

    “You can buy a stunning rainbow of micas, and it’s seriously tempting to do so! I’d recommend starting with a white-silver mica, gold mica, bronze mica, and perhaps copper. You can use the white-silver one as a shimmer base and colour it with all your other pigments. When I say “white-silver” I mean a mica that is basically just pure, white shimmer, not grey. Some suppliers call this silver, others call it white or diamond. Go by the photo more than the name.”

    Silver mica from NDA

    This is what she’s talking about. I ordered this silver mica from New Directions, and it looks more white than silver. Looking at the pictures on TKB, they look more gray-silver than white-silver. There is one white-silver looking mica on their website, but it’s not lip safe. If I were ordering from TBK, I would choose the Polished Silver, Diamond Cluster, or Zirconium Cluster mica. All are lip, eye, and face safe, but reading the descriptions, it sounds like they could be very different levels of “sparkly”. So, I’d look at them all and decide which one you like best. There is a Metallic White, but it is not lip safe, so I would not go with that one. There is one called Silver White too, but that one says to use caution around the eyes. It is lip, eye, and face safe.

    Makeup! Makeup! I have tomorrow off to make…stuff! Brows! Powder- veil? Or do we dabble into the lippie stuff?

    I got samples of the Rhyme collection and I’m going to have to get the larger size. The colours are amazing. Plus I got the metallic duo samples. Very very excellent for my eyeshadow. I love the white mica in that collection. It’s so me. Lol.

    But I need…need something. Brows? Eyeliner? Argh! Choices are so difficult.

    I almost bought the Jack and Jill micas from that collection. I went a little crazy, putting so many samples in my shopping cart! I ended up deleting them because I have a bunch of mica samples I ordered from Brambleberry several years ago to try out in soap. Ive used a few but most I still have. I need to use those up first. Lots of pretty colors for lips, cheeks, and eyes!

    I need to make lotion next. Then I need to try to make a cleansing conditioner because I’m almost out of mine. And, of course, there’s more makeup to make! Definitely need the anti-shine powder and airbrush powder! And work on some mascara. I want to try out Sarah’s recipe with the stearic acid. And……and…..and…..😜

    Sample queen, we got what you need, oh Sample queen….

    I did that on both sites. I was like, whoa crazy, hold on. Let’s get the big things. 2 sample packs. Next time, a few more. Though, I admit, I bought the transparent powder pack. Worth it for blending. But I will need some more colours..have no clue which, but since I have base oxides, it’s micas to build on. Plus ultramarines.

    I’m trying to decide- anti-shine powder, lip gloss, or brow liner. I’m so undecided because I want everything done Now!

    Anti shine powder will be easy and the quickest, I think. Just measure, whiz in the coffee grinder and voila! Powder! The other two will take some heating, stirring and blending, like Marie demonstrated in one of her YouTube videos, especially the lippies. That will take a bit longer. I really want to do some sort of lippie. Lipstick or gloss?? Choices, choices….

    Yeah….I like easy on and Mack my lips without worrying about colour on the teeth. But plummy. Hmmm.

    So, powder, possibly lip gloss, then possibly lean towards brows?

    Powder, plum, and brow. Totally doable! I think plum will be an excellent color to make. I’d probably go a shade deeper than what you’d need, but stay in that same color family. Anything in the pink family looks good with my skin tone. Do you remember how she made it? Red oxide, blue shade and ??? Was it carmine? My head is fuuuuuuzzzzyyy.

    Hey Belinda! The video of Marie mixing stuff for lipstick is the Raspberry Sobert. Carmine, red oxide and some blue oxide, titanium dioxide.

    I do have to say, the best part of everything is, I have jars at home filled with creamy eye liner base, cream base, lipstick base, base, base, base. So all I do, measure out how many grams I need and get to work! Individual amounts! It’s great! No more wasting my money giving away things!

    Don’t get me wrong, I love to give away things, but over the span of eight or so years, I’ve given away so much I could have bought a country.

    I like that idea Barb. I may have to copy your example.
