Super Easy Lip Gloss

When I make lip glosses, I always have people asking me “Is it hard to make? Do I need a million ingredients?” The answer is NO! Lip glosses are really easy to make and are used for many simple makeup routines. Come with me and let’s make a lip gloss worthy of YOUR makeup routine!

This lip gloss will not tint or color the lips due to the small amount of color being used. It will give shimmer and shine as we are using Castor Oil and Silver Mica.

Recipe Note:
Q.S. means quantity sufficient. You do not need much Silver Mica or Oil Soluble Lip Balm Colors. This recipe needs so little that we can’t measure it! So we use Q.S. to say use as much as you need to achieve the right color, flavor, etc.

Begin by weighing the Carnauba Wax and Castor Oil. After measuring the ingredients, microwave using short time bursts until the wax is melted. Add flavors. Now the color and mica can be added. I used the tip of a clean pipette and pulled it across the top of the color and then used that pipette to stir the mixture until the color was completely mixed in. I then used a new pipette and put the tip into the mica to scoop a small amount into the lip gloss. Using the pipette I used for the color, I stirred the mixture to decide if it needed more mica or not. Once you are satisfied with the color, fill the brushes while the mixture is still warm. Leave them standing upright until they have cooled. After the mixture has cooled, then you can put the tips and caps on. If the mixture gets into the small metal tube before it is completely cooled, the metal can cause the mixture to solidify over the opening and material will be difficult to advance into the brush.

Color Note:
I first added the Ruby Lip Balm Color, but I was not pleased with the vibrant pink color. I added a touch of Black Lip Balm Color to darken the Ruby and I accidentally added too much Black! The color was too dark, so I added White to brighten the color. After I finished mixing the white color into the lip gloss, I decided to stick with the plum color that I had achieved because I didn’t want to mess the color up or make a lip gloss that had lots of color. Next time I would actually add more color to create a lip tint because the finished color is lovely as is!

Flavor Note:
As much as I like the vanilla flavor for this lip gloss, I think I will pick a “pink” flavor for my next batch! I’m currently torn between Watermelon, Pomegranate or Strawberry Swirl. What flavor would you choose? Or would you pick a completely different one? Tell us what flavor you would choose!

I hope you enjoy making this delightful lip gloss that is a perfect addition to your purse or makeup bag!
