How to make your own lipgloss - 5 Different recipies



Stuff you'll need:Vegetable shortening, honey, unsweetened drink mix (eg. Kool-Aid), hot water

  1. Use a small bowl to mix 1 tbsp of the solid vegetable shortening and 1 tsp of honey.  In a separate bowl, mix the drink mix and 1/4 tsp of hot water until it is dissolved.  Stir in as much of the drink mix as possible. The actual amount will depend on the temperature of water. The more you can dissolve, the stronger the flavour will be.

  2. You can choose the color and flavor of you lip gloss by the type of drink mix you use. 

  3. Add one drop of the water mixture to the shortening/honey base.  Stir well.  Repeat until you get the color/flavor combination you want.  Pour into a clean container or old lip gloss pot.

  4. Store in the refrigerator.  Keeps for 3 days, but it tastes so good that you will use it up very fast!

Chocolate Lip Gloss

3 tablespoons cocoa butter

4 or 5 chocolate chips

1 capsule vitamin E 

Melt all ingredients in a double boiler, and then blend with a spoon until the mixture is very smooth. Put into a container and refrigerate until solid.


Cranberry Lip Gloss

1 tablespoon almond oil

10 fresh cranberries

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon petroleum jelly (optional - for more shine) 

Mix all the ingredients and then place them in a microwave or heat-resistant container. Heat in the microwave or a water bath until the mixture just begins to boil (1-2 minutes in the microwave). Stir well and gently mash the berries. Let the mixture stand for at least 5 minutes.

Strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove all pieces of cranberry. Stir and allow to cool completely. When cool, spoon into a clean container. 

To use: Spread a small amount onto your lips.

1 tablespoon grated beeswax

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil
