Gold Enigma Mica is a mysterious mica with underlying flashes of gold. At first glance this glitter will appear plain white, but when in different angles of light you will see that gold! This is an interference mica, meaning it turns color when the light hits the sparkle.
This mica will not show in cold process. It is best used in melt and pour or dusting the tops of soaps to give a special shine. It is cosmetic grade and safe for lips and eyes. It would be perfect in lip gloss or eye shadow!
I bought all 3 Enigma micas (red, gold & blue) for use in MP embeds and for dusting atop CP soap loaves, and seriously, I can't decide which one I love best... They are all STUNNING, and I HIGHLY recommend that if you're on the fence about which one to get, get them ALL... You WON'T be disappointed! When I swiped each color on my skin & admired them in the light, the metallic sparkle each one picks up in its respective hue is absolutely jaw-dropping! I went ahead & made some MP embeds with this extraordinary mica (that I'll be using to adorn the top of a CP batch) and the results are positively GORGEOUS! In clear MP it produces a shimmery, champagne-like color that's fully saturated in brilliant gold! I just came back and ordered a 3-set of NS's Glitter Spray Pumps (absolute BEST BEST BEST prices for those that I've seen anywhere too, and they work GREAT!) because I've decided that this beauty (along with its red & blue siblings) needs something extra special for applying to the tops of CP loaves! These Enigma micas are OUTSTANDING and I can't wait to put all three to use in various crafty projects! To me, these are definitely staple micas to have in one's collection!
This is my new absolutely favorite mica powder. In the light it shimmers beautifully with undertones of gold, gorgeous for soaps and bath bombs both for me. Will definitely reorder
