Creating Lip Tints - Sable Brown

I love lip products. Ask me how many lip balms I currently have in my purse. Okay, okay… I’ll just tell you. As of today, I currently have 3 lip balms, 2 lip tints, 3 lip glosses and 1 tube of lipstick stashed in my purse. If you ask anyone who sees me dig through my purse on a regular basis, they will tell you that this is a very small number. I love to have a collection of creamy, silky, smooth feeling lip balms at my fingertips. Today I am going to share how I make lip balms that have sufficient color to lightly tint the lips.

I will be using one of our lip balm solutions so we can keep it simple. Today I will be using our Soy Lip Solutions. If you want a more glossy product, I highly recommend using my personal favorite, the Mango Lip Solutions.

Recipe Note:
Q.S. means quantity sufficient. The amount of color varies from person to person until you find the amount you like. Some of the colors in this need so little that it can be difficult to weigh the amount needed! So we use Q.S. to say use as much as you need to achieve the right color, flavor, etc.

Weigh 1.5 oz of Soy Lip Solutions into a small microwave safe. Heat the material gently until it has melted. At this time, I added approximately the same amount of two large peas of Red Lip Balm Color and one medium pinhead of Blue Lip Balm Color. Stir the material well. Place one drop of the mixture of the lip tint onto a cool plate. This is what we call the plate test. This helps you to make sure you have the desired color.

After my first round of the plate test, I added one large pinheads worth of Coral Lip Balm Color and tested the color again. Then I added about one medium pinhead of Yellow Lip Balm Color and the tip of a pin of Blue. Play around with adding various amounts of color until you are satisfied with the finished color. My finished color works for me, but your personal preferences may change the amounts used.

Once I was satisfied with the color, I added the Silver Mica to give my lip tint a shimmer. For this particular batch, I added 1 of our .15 cc scoops to the mixture. Stir well and fill your desired containers. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Note:
I did not flavor this batch of lip tint, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t. Add your favorite flavor and take pleasure from your own unique lip tint that is personalized to suit you and your fabulous tastes!
