Problem with micas


Recommended Posts

First time trying my hand at lip balms, but have a problem with the shimmer I added. The lip balm base is from Bitter Creek, the Shimmer Dust ("glitter") is from AH (I thinks it's mica?), bought the tubes and filling tray from Elements.

i noticed the Shimmer Dust tends to settle to the bottom. I add the Shimmer Dust while the base is liquid, stir a lot and then use a pipette to transfer the liqid t the tubes.

If the Shimmer Dust sinks to the bottom the lip tubes as I fill them, does that mean all the glitter will just sink to the bottom and there'll be none at the top and middle?

How can I achieve a uniform color and shimmer throughout the whole lip balm? TIA
