Revised: Help with a formula please :)

Hello!
I am currently formulating a matte lipstick. The goal is to have a high pigment payoff and a nice matte finish, with strong staying power. Now i am new at this and not at all a professional, so please don't judge on the measurements. These are batch tests for 1-2 lipstick molds.

Here is the formula I have that has been the closest to my goal:

Formula:
ozokerite-5ml
carnauba-4ml
candelilla-4ml
ispropyl myristate-5ml
caprylis-4ml
castor oil-4ml
avocado oil -2ml
kaolin clay-7ml
mica-4ml
pigment- 6ml
vitamin e- few drops
RESULT:
This formula had a good matte texture, but a little too dry. The color of the lipstick wasn't strong enough, pigmented enough.

I have an loi that I found that i was going after (not trying to duplicate entirely), however for me, it's difficult to find where the 1% starts in this specific loi.

LOI:
Ozokerite, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Kaolin, Mica, Lauryl Methacrylate/Glycol Dimethacrylate Crosspolymer, Octyldodecanol, Flavor (Aroma), Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba), Isododecane, Hydogenated Polycyclopentadiene, Polyethylene, BHT, Caprylyl Glycol

MY QUESTION:

Should I remove or add something different in order to achieve a stronger color payoff and a less drier texture?

Thanks a lot in advance!
