What is the difference between this and the silica microspheres? I am trying to find something to make a matte liquid lipstick with a more creamy or mousse finish rather than a dry one. This or silica microspheres and versagel mixed perhaps? Any suggestions?
They are different in many ways, so don't think of them as anything closer than, perhaps second cousins.
Tweaking our Matte Liquid Lipstick recipe to make it more creamy or mousse is something you can do, so long as you keep in mind that for every action there will be a counter action. For example, if you add Versagel to the recipe to make it moussey, you are going to reduce the transfer resistance as well as the matte sheen. This is in part because the oils in the Versagel are going to break down the film former.
Suggestion? Umm, m-a-y-b-e try making the recipe with a thicker dimethicone. The one in our recipe is 1.5 and a thicker one we sell would be the Dimethicone 100 or Dimethicone 350. Not having tried it I'm not sure what the offsetting effect would be. If I were to try it, I would probably use the 350 (go whole hog and see what happens) and then "peel back" if it takes it too far.
Hope this helps? Love the question, I'll consider experimenting as well!
