Innovative approach on how to make a long-wear liquid eyeliner

17 Oct 2018, 10:30 - 11:30

Formulation Lab

In this lab session we will make waterproof gel eyeliner by using simple processing with minimal equipment. Kobo’s Waterproof Gel Eyeliner, KEL-004C, is comprised of a gelling system with AQUA KEEP 10SH-NFC. This system tolerates a high percentage of Kobo’s acrylic polymer, KOBOGUARD® 50AMP.

The blackest black shade is made with WSJ10CB-NP, a Black 2 dispersion in the same film-forming polymer. KTZ® EBONY has a high concentration of Black Iron Oxide, which provides depth of color.

The combination of SESQ-MH5, a composite microsphere, and SILICA SHELLS contributes to a non-skipping line, even application and optimized drying time.
