Sericite: This silky silver powder is the ideal base for your eye shadows and foundation bases. It feels soft on the skin and provides that “slip” needed for flawless application.Ingredients:Botanical Name: SericiteCommon Name: Sericite
As part of a slumber party with 15 girls, they made pressed powder eye shadow. We simply mixed this with various eye-safe micas and it was the perfect color...with all of the sparkle of the micas we selected and managing the ratio of sericite:mica was easy to bring out the color/sparkle or reduce the ratio for a more subdued color.
Even after we pressed it, just running my finger over the powders was like touching silk....absolutely great skin feel to it.
This is excellent in one of my mineral foundation bases, If I want a sheer coverage with more of a sheen to it, this works great with your neutral mica colours, it gives a lovely sheen...This has great coverage, feel and lets your skin breathe still..My customers love the final result in the make up..Thanks :o)
It is an ok base but I called brambleberry to see what would make my mineral foundation less mat and more shinny (like bare minerals) this in not the correct product!:-(
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Sue! I'm so sorry this product was not what you were expecting. Sericite is used as a base for foundation and eye shadows providing coverage, hold and slip. It does not provide shine. To get your foundation more shiny I would recommend adding a small amount of Super Pearly White Mica or Gold (light) Mica. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
I bought this product hoping to get a shine powder, as it says mica, but it has no shine at all.
It might be a good base for make up, not good to create new mica´s shades.

Hi Melissa! I’m sorry to hear this product was not what you were expecting. If you are looking for a product that is both shiny and silvery, you may like the Vintage Gray Mica. I love mixing this with the
Super Pearly White
to create a lighter gray color :)
Sericite allows me to create makeup that doesn't emphasize wrinkles. My mineral makeup slides on and doesn't cake up. I love this stuff.
