If you want to save a little time, this mica already has the adhesion added in! I personally prefer making up my own rations and preferred the texture of the other micas so I don't reach for this one as often. This one did not have quite as much slip and silkiness as I'd like.
I love that this helps with slip and adhesion...however it made my face itch :/ I don't use it because of that and am wary about selling foundations/shadows that contain it because it irritated my skin.
I really like to add this to My own personal formula as I need a lot of coverage, and I can achieve it with this.
This sericite is great as it give you a nice finish in full coverage foundations. Preventing a chalky finish and the Mag. Myristate helps with adhesion.
I am in love with this sericite. I love the plain magnesium myristate to begin with, and this powder is just the icing on the cake so to speak. I love how it is already mixed for me, and I use it in all of my formulations. It helps to keep the final product less "flyaway", and the adhesion is better. I can't live without this one!
I formulate only for myself, and I make tiiiny amounts of eyeshadows to play with. Using this powder in my shadows gives me the best of both worlds - magnesium myristate and sericite in a very small amount. Super stuff!!
I love this sericite because it gives your product a creamy texture without the whitening effects. It is also water resistant so it stays longer and you don't have to reapply make up every so often. :)
