Need help Formulating liquid to matte lipstickGood morning !My friend and I are creating our own cosmetics. We want to specialize in liquid to matte lipstick. A formula that glides on wet and dries to a complete matte finish. I have tired dozens upon dozens of unsuccessful batches. However, I am very close! The problems I tend to have are 1. The color is not holding 2. The completed item separates into oil/water after a day or two and 3. My lips tend to burn when I apply the liquid lipstick. I think it I am getting the burning because I am mixing the magnesium sterate with an ingredient I am not supposed to be mixing it with. I am desperate for help as doing this is very frustrating. The magnesium sterate made the formula matte and everything, but it burned my lips! The product separates and sometimes the color goes on streaky and the color does not hold. Below is a list of my ingredients that I am working with. I am not sure if I need to add more of one ingredient or completely take out one ingredient. Percentage wise I need help. Could you please give me some advice and aid me to creating a formula that dries matte and the color goes on non-streaky and holds. Thanks so much!! Any help would be greatly appreciated!Typically I add items 1,2,3,4 together and heatAdd 9 ,6 & 7 to the batchThe 12 & 13And finally either beeswax, magnesium sterate or carauba wax to hold the mixture togetherTHIS IS JUST 1 EXAMPLE OF HOW I WOULD CREATE A BATCH. AS I MENTIONED I TRIED DOZENS UPON DOZENS AND HAVE FAILEDTHE INGREDIENT I ADD THE MOST OF IS ISODODECANE. SMALLER BUT EQUAL AMOUNTS OF Cyclopentasiloxane AND dimethicone ORDimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer.
