Beautiful alone or blended!
I love this color by itself for lovely pinks and deep reds. But I also blend it with Brick Red Oxide for a little truer red, and my FAVORITE Apricot Blush Mica (PLEASE BRING THIS BACK!!!) for gorgeous shades of orange.

Beautiful color
I like this because you can create several different colors with the one mica. Add just a little to get a softer red or a bit more for that beautiful deep burgandy-ish color. I've also added titanium dioxide to get a pretty pink type color. I always mix it with a little olive oil from my CP batch and it has worked great very time.

workhorse crimson
This is a fabulous color- I mixed 1/8 teaspoon into one ounce of clear M&P and got an opaque shimmering strong crimson. I also used very small amounts mixed with other non-bleeding liquid colorants quite successfully. This color will be a staple in my palette.

Love it!
I made my best bar of soap every using this color! I purchased a sample back and I was nervous because many colors I've used have changed or not been quite what I expected. I used this in a cold process with only olive and coconut oils, made a swirl by splitting the batch. It's absolutely gorgeous even after a week of fading at all. Perfect for Valentine's sales. I will definitely be buying larger quantities.

If you make your own red nail polish, this is a great mica to use.
