Many brands of lipsticks contain mica particles, which can play a role in injecting translucency and bright luster into the lip color. In cosmetics, the commonly used mica raw material is muscovite, which is often used to replace pearlescent pigments to add red, Of the loose powder or blush, the most commonly used in our lives today is muscovite, which is a very common rock-forming mineral that can be formed under different geological conditions.
