Extender White (aka Ultra Silk Mica) is a blend of Mica and Titanium Dioxide. Its best use is as a"filler" or "extender" for matte cosmetics. It isrelatively translucent and non-whitening and also has a low luster.
When Iwas a tomboy growing up in Southern Indiana my mother never complained about the ground-in red dirt at the knees of myhand-me-down jeans.She understood.How else was I expected to study the exploits of our backyard's black and red ants?
But, if I were to smear the same intense, staining red on my eyelids and lips and call it cosmetics --- urrgh. Not so much.
Similarly, if you are making a purely matte product you will want to thin down your intense, pure pigments (such as red oxide, brown oxide, black oxide, ultramarine blue ... ) with something that has good adhesion, relative translucency, and low luster.
In the past I've recommended our custom-blendedTKB Matte Texture Base but, to be fair, Extender White is probably a better option.
Try it, love it, thank me for it later. Just as I thank my Mom. Here she is, at age 80. Thank you Mom for letting me be a tomboy and for teaching me how to live a happy and healthy life.
