I was hoping someone could help me resolve an issue I am having with my velvet matte lipstick pencil formula.
I had a cosmetic chemist formulate two pencils for me (which I later purchased the IP for), so that I can produce at home.
Although the formulas are different, I am getting a similar result when I make it at home.
I believe I am making the pencils correctly, but when I try to apply the lipstick the product breaks.
Could it be due to me pouring the formula in the pencil component at a very high temperature before putting it in the refrigerator to cool?
I am a little stumped because this is not how the samples she provided to be behaved.
Please see one of the formulas below.
Fractionated coconut oil
Liquid Color blends
Pp wax (or more talc which is what I used)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
