Making lip gloss at home is pretty much fun I have heard and read a lot about them so thought of trying the lip gloss recipe today.One just needs few household ingredients for this and this recipe can be a big relief to those moms who do not want their daughter to use lipstick at young age.There is still a hint of lipstick required in this but still it is way better than using the whole lipstick.
So let’s go ahead with the Lip gloss recipe
1. Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline
2. An empty lipbalm container
3. Toothpick to mix the lip gloss or you can use the back of your brush also for mixing
4.Any moisturizing lipstick of your choice.You can use eyeshadow ,pigments, glitter or blush also as pigment but I prefer lipstick only.
5.You can add little honey or vanilla extract for the flavor.
Step1 - Petroleum jelly is your base therefore quantity of petroleum jelly depends upon the amount of lip gloss you want to make.
Step 2 -Now with a knife shave off some lipstick and the amount of lipstick too depends upon the kind of tint you want.I wanted a gloss which can hide my pigmentation therefore I scrapped out little more lipstick.I am using Revlon colourburst lipstick in crimson here .It is better to use moisturizing lipstick in this as process of mixing the lipstick with petroleum jelly then becomes quiet easy.
Step3 - Add petroleum jelly and lipstick in a small container.I used my body shop lemon lip butter container in this .Make sure you wash and sanitize the container.
Step4 – Mix mix with a tooth pick
and we are done with the lip gloss You can add some glitter or shimmer in it
It looks really very pretty.If you have any lip butter which is not tinted than you can made it into a lip gloss by following the same recipe.I find it as a cute gift which can be gifted to any of your girlfriend What say you?
P.S – If you find petroleum jelly little too hard then microwave it for 40-50 seconds.
