Greetings talented chemists, I have been having difficulty getting this eyeliner to dry quickly (5-10 minutes).  

This is how it’s listed on the back of the benchmark, from top to bottom.

Castor Seed Oil  (My estimate - ~15%)
Coconut Oil (My estimate - ~15%)
Grapeseed Oil (My estimate - ~4%)
Carnauba Wax (My estimate - ~3%
Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2 (Lanolin Replacement) (My estimate - ~3%)
Silica (My estimate - ~3%)
Candelilla Wax (My estimate - ~1%)
Tocopherol (My estimate - ~0.1%)
Preservative blend (Thyme, Rosemary, etc etc) (My estimate - ~1%)
Iron Oxides (My estimate - ~40%)

CI 77499
CI 77491
CI 77492

If you can could you please take a look at this INCI deck and see what you would lean on to get the dry down accomplished?  The benchmark that uses this INCI deck dries down within 5-15 minutes.  Any help or guidance would be awesome.

Thank you!
