Lauroyl Lysineisderivedfrom coconut and palm oils. It is an expensive raw material, and so is commonly added to a formula as a surface-treatment on a less expensive base powder. In this case, Sericite Mica is the base powder.
If you rub some L-Lysine treated Sericite on your skin next to plain Sericite, you will notice an increased "cushion" or bounce. It also has improved compressibility for those of you doing your own pressed powders. Finally, Sericite Mica which is surface-treated with Lauroyl Lysine is softer, silkier, smoother and both oil- and water-resistant.

So I use this in eyeshadows or lotions and serums?
You may use it in all of the products you listed, however the primary use would be in a face powder, a pressed powder or perhaps an eyeshadow.
L-Lysine on Sericite is a surface-treated mica powder. A surface-treated mica is a mica which has been improved upon to make it perform better in specific ways. The purpose of the Lauroyl Lysine treatment is to: a) improve slip and glide; b) boost adhesion to the skin (less fallout); c) make it a little better at compacting in a pressed powder cosmetic; d) give a silky soft skin feel; e) give a little cushion or bounce to the feel of the product on the skin.
What percentage should this be used at? And is sheer or opaque? Will it lighten a mica, oxide, or pigment very much?
You may use it at any percentage you want, depending on the formula. It is simply sericite mica, which is a base/bulking powder which has been surface treated to give the added benefits of Lauroyl Lysine. It is sheer in coverage but it does have a white tone and so will lighten any color to some degree, but not to a large degree.
