I don’t know about you, but one of the main reasons I don’t wear an actual lip gloss/Chapstick is because they don’t come in pretty colors. I can’t wear a clear or sheer gloss because I LIKE COLOR!
I was excited when I came across this cool idea while surfing my Beautylish app. (Btw it’s such a cool site for those who are into all things beauty). This is a tutorial on how to make your very own lipgloss. The best part is that you can add in shavings from your favorite lipstick color, so now you can have that color in gloss form. I’m all for this idea and can’t wait to try it out.
Moisturized lips with a pop of color is a win win for me.
2 Tbsp carrier oil (such as almond oil—this dilutes the peppermint oil from a burn to a tingle)
1 Tbsp beeswax pellets
Directions: Put the two tablespoons carrier oil and one tablespoon beeswax in a glass jar and close the lid. Heat the jar in a pot with water on medium-high heat until wax is melted. Remove jar from pot and stir mixture. Add peppermint oil with a dropper (not too much or it’ll burn your lips—we recommend starting with eight drops and adding more if necessary). If you’d like your balm to be tinted, stir in your lipstick shavings until your desired color is achieved. Then immediately pour the mixture into your containers. Let stand for two hours until hard.
