I have formulated for pressed eyeshadow but when I press the eyeshadow into the pan and conduct the drop test the eyeshadow either breaks or chips. Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?
This is like the umpteenth post on eyeshadows
You should have figured by now that they ain't easy at all.
You'd be better off starting with a premade base
Just check out this one out to see how many ingredients it has:
Ingredients: lauryl laurate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, polyhydroxystearic acid, isododecane, trimethylsiloxysilicate resin, candelilla wax, octyldodecanol, titanium dioxide, talc, sunflower wax, silica, dimethicone, tocopherol.
Sourcing, purchasing and blending all these ingredients in the proper order, with the proper methods is going to become too much of a chore, unless you plan to sell hundreds (if not thousands) pounds of eyeshadow.
Not meant to discourage you, just pointing out the truth.
There are also cream/liquid eyeshadows, reportedly easier to make.
As a nice market niche you can make (liquid) custom-colored cosmetics for airbrush use.
Especially interesting if you also sell, service and repair the airbrushes.
Just an idea.
