Review: Coastal Scents 'Blue-Red Chrome' Mica

Coastal Scents offers a variety of different mica powders and glitter. The best part is that the samples are only $1. A sample will last you a very long time. I have used my sample dozens of times, and I still have more than half left. I have a couple of other micas that I purchased, but those will be for a different time. If you are curious about these micas, check out the Coastal Scents website.
This is a review for the Blue-Red Chrome Mica.

Like I mentioned above, the sample was only $1. The website says that the sample is one teaspoon, but I think it was much more than that. 1 oz of mica is $4.95. Don't be fooled by the price. 1 oz in powder is A LOT! If you order a 1 oz mica, you are going to get a huge jar of product. The cool thing about micas, is that you can mix them with other micas to create new colors. So these are very versatile. The mica itself is very finely milled, very smooth, and easy to apply. The only negative thing is that this color has a lot of fallout. Since it's blue, it is a little bit harder to clean off the fallout from the under eye area, so be careful.

Notice that it is a blue mica with a red duochrome. The red comes out in the sunlight. 

~If you have this, or want to get this and you want a different way of using this, try putting a red or blue cream base under it. I personally love using a blue cream shadow under this. It makes the red duochrome pop out really nice.

Thank you all for reading! I appreciate any comments and/or questions :)
