The girls and I made lip gloss to gift to some of their friends. It’s super-easy to do and works pretty well. We didn’t have any flavoring, so we didn’t add any, but feel free to do so if you’d like.
I wanted the girls to decorate the containers more, but I guess they weren’t feeling very creative. Perhaps they’ll do it later. You can decorate the lids by gluing beads, sequins, “jewels”, gemstones, etc. You can buy the little containers for the lipgloss at craftstores or look for toiletries travel kits.
Semi-natural lip gloss recipe
- 1 oz beeswax (by weight)
- 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
Put the beeswax and the oil in a small cooking pot and heat over low heat until the beeswax melts, stirring occasionally. Once melted take off the heat and stir constantly until the mixture cools down and thickens. Transfer to a bowl.
Using a knife cut a tiny bit of lipstick and add it to the lip gloss mixture. Stir until the color is fully blended. Add more lipstick if you want a darker color. Add flavoring if desired. Put in small containers.
