Renaissance Rose

I have another lovely dark shade for you today!

For this one, I used CQ Charcoal and Blackstar Red Mica pigment from TKB Trading.


I filled and empty bottle up with 3/4 of Charcoal, then mixed in 1 1/2 tablespoons of Blackstar Red Mica pigment.


I was really surprised how this one turned out. The color is a pretty dark plum, with a hint of red and a gorgeous shimmer.

  12. This reminds me of black cherry soda. Yummers!

  13. I’m amazed at your colors!
    I’ve been hunting high and low for a dark brown with a blue flash. Maybelline Color Show does a brown with blue in it but I can never find anyone who carries it. Considering frankening one up but not sure how to achieve a duochrome effect?

  14. Why Does Spirulina and Chlorella Help Provide Defenses against Heavy Metal colon flushification?
    There are many colon flush diets lack adequate nutrition because of their
    restrictive nature, and that is ok. There are supplements one can take, such as cadmium, lead,
    aluminum, uranium, barium, arsenic, etc. You know
    that your body is very important to note that these are made out of other flours such as rye, rice and soy
