Unlike the other "Travel to . . ." colors in our line, Travel to Mercury is not a whitish powder with subtle shifts in hue. Instead, this powder is super-saturated with color. It is probably the most fabulous of the entire family!
. . . Travel To Mercury is natural mineral silica blended with iron oxides. If you rub the powder across a piece of white paper with black background and tilt the paper, you will seea reddish, coppery heat which transforms into a warm bronze, almost a greenish gold, as it is tilted and turned.
The powder has a nice medium sheen and is excellent for all types of cosmetics.
Here are the guidelines for "best use":
◦*Use the color alone or in with small amounts of dark colors such as blue, black or green
◦*Use in transparent, translucent or semi-opaque formulas (for example: lip gloss, not lip stick)
◦*Mix it gently (avoid grinding it in a mortar and pestle or blender)
◦*Package in transparent packaging to show off the color shifting

I can no distinguish the color shift, when they say subtle- they mean REALLY SUBTLE. Like unnoticeable, and I was LOOKING for it. It is a pretty bronze with a red hilite. That's all. I can not find any reason to justify the higher price.
Could it be prettier? No!
Well I enjoy this color and have had a lot of fun using it. Adds an interesting depth to browns and oranges or even on its own. Well worth the purchase.
The shift isn't as noticeable as the other travel to's, but this is a gorgeous color.
This one is really pigmented and very pretty. Love the cross between the brown and orange. It's just pretty. Did I mention it being pretty? (-:
