    Hi 

    I am working on a pressed powder foundation which I expect to have a smooth and
    silky feel and these are the ingredients:

    Talc, zinc stearate, dimethicone, titanium dioxide, calcium carbonate, mica, Iron oxides, parabens

     My first problem
    is that when I increase the percentage of the dimethicone, the pressed powder
    becomes so stiff and solid like a stone and whenever I decrease dimethicone,
    the press powder does not stick enough to each other and still it does not have
    enough silky feel. 

    (I mix the powders in a
    blender then add dimethicone and after extensive mixing, pressed them.)

    I will appreciate any
    suggestion.
