Colors are pigment and dye potent. They may stain clothing or other hard, porous surfaces. Handle products over a protective layer like parchment paper or a paper towel. Colors may also temporarily stain skin. Patch test on your inner wrist or forearm, and let sit for at least ten minutes before removing to check for staining. If staining occurs, try diluting the Color with the Unattached Element, using Unattached like a Color in your mixing ratio. Skin stains are not toxic, but removal can take up to 48 hours with washing and exfoliating.
Formulated from dark to light levels: 1N (black) to 12N (white). 2N, 4N, 6N, 8N, and 10N have a golden undertone.
Not formulated to levels, but for true to color results. When formulating with Spectrum Colors for undertone or minor adjustments, begin with small quantities, fractions of loose scoops (as little as 1/32). Mix and test before adding more. Less than a full loose scoop does not require added Elements in your final formula.
If you suspect Spectrum Colors to be irritating or staining, try adding the Unattached Element as a Color in your formula to dilute. For example: 1 part Earth Blue + 1 part Unattached + 2-4 parts Luster. This formula will result in a dewy finish that is not as pigment intense on your skin. Do a patch test to confirm before applying it to the face, eyes, or lips.
