Pressed powder formulation is an empirical science, balancing application, color, effect, wear, and compression. In general, HallBrite® BHB provides a smooth, non-oily feel and wets pigments well, resulting in good color development. Low levels achieve good compression, yet good deposit, without glazing on application. This product has a creamy feel and smooth, even application. Particularly of note for this formulation: it exhibits excellent color development, and so good agreement between mass tone and skin tone. The product brushes on easily, without streaking or blotchiness.
1 The manufacturing method will depend on available equipment.
2 Phase A is milled to disperse the pigments, usually with a hammer- or jet-mill.
3 Then, Phase B is sprayed on Phase A with agitation.
4 Since this is a matte shade, the batch is milled again.
