This post is about lip products. I've been cooking up some ideas and it's time to test them out now that I have ALL the supplies!
Soon I will be making all these types of lip balms & Lip colors below:
- Double Boiler Shea Butter
- Lippie containers Mango Butter
- Alcohol Cocoa Butter
- Wooden Spoon Cocounut Oil
- Toothpicks Castor Oil
- Container for base Lip Balm Beeswax
- Melter Cups Candilia Wax
- Scale Lip safe Mica & dyes
- Measurement Spoons Versagel
- Patience & Time Vaseline
- Coffee Grinder/Pestle & Mortar Rosemary Extract/Vitamen E Oil
Man!! This seems like alot of work, but I'm impatient and I want to test out all these theories and decide on my favorite one for lip application. I am always interested in saving money so, some would be a cheaper habit to maintain than others, i.e. Vaseline. I am testing for feel, staying powder and pigmentation.
As for the preservative, I say this is optional, but if you decide to opt out, try to make formulation for jars that do not require as much hand in jar or lip brush contamination. You can also just make small amounts and throw away left overs after so much time. Plus, these formulation are water free, which generally do not require preservatives. Be careful not to get water in balm/glosses.
Stay tuned for my results!!
