This is more of a question. I want to make a gel eyeliner with this product. Has anyone tried this? Advise please!
I used this product to make a lip liner and put it into the pencil blank. I noticed how others mentioned it as being too hard, but apparently I mixed mine a little too soft. Yeah, it sharpened well but when I applied it, it went on wonderfully, however when I finished lining my lips, the tip was quite smashed down and I had to use my fingers to shape it back up. If not for that, it made up great for the use I had for it! I haven't tried making eyeliner for it yet though.
Has anyone added some "slip" powders? Isnt this just the wax base? I thought that was what his was just the wax part. TKB Responds: This is the recipe that comes from the Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Natural Beauty Products. We also think it is a little hard to work with, but as soon as we put our pencils on the site, we had to offer a base.
melt this down and add about 1/4 the amount in castor oil, mix it up and it's amazing. I made a matte neon green eyeliner/cream shadow base with titanium oxide and chromium oxide. this is a customer favorite. Almost water proof, lasts all day and doesn't flake (!)
is it waterline safe?
This may be too difficult to use for eyes, but I use it as a base for my lipstick pencils and lip balms, and let me tell you, this stuff is incredible. Works as a perfect hardening agent in lip balms and lipsticks. I love it.
probably you need to plan on a softening additive. as is i would compare the hardness to a Craypas oil pastel. too much softer,though,and you know it'll be one of those sticks that gum up/break apart while sharpening. for me, very useful as a base on which to add.
Ok on my first post I hated this stuff. I did add jojoba oil to it and it is much smoother and goes on very nicely, BUT there is no staying power, it wipes right off. Anybody have any ideas?! I also added the colorant 50% of the base amount. TKB Responds: here is a link to a video which might help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrBOBGUyLoY
Did not like this at all. When I make a pencil it was so hard that it was very difficult for the liner to go on. I am going to try to add a little more oil to see if that will soften then end product.
I just purchased this item to make myself some eyeliner pencils because I wanted a really deep purple eyeliner. I melted it, mixed in my color, and it was impossible to use as an eyeliner. I even added a little bit of coconut oil and it still didn't work very well. Highly disappointed with this product.
this was soo hard to work with, it hardens way to hard to be used as a liner, quite dissapointed.
