Maybe y'all are talking about two different dusts.
Michaels/Wilton has had shimmer dusts for several years now. For them you wet the surface and sprinkle them on to it. They are sold in a three pack of colors.
Michaels/Wilton have also had their pearl line of dusts for about two years, increasing the colors offered last year. These are like luster dusts, as they have the shimmery effects to the colors. These come in a single package and is a tall skinny tube.
This is the first time they have had the 'Color Dusts'. These would be like petal dusts, they are a matte dust.
I won't claim to be in the total know with all that is Wilton. But I have been teaching the Wilton classes at Michaels for 7 years now, and this is the first time I have heard of Wilton having actual 'color dusts'.
