Zombie Lip Balm
|This year I am so excited about Halloween! My little one is 3 years old now and is really starting to grasp the meaning of birthdays and holidays. I can’t wait to take her trick-or-treating this year!In the spirit of Halloween I decided to come up with a fun lip balm. Zombie Lip Balm is about fun and function. One question that I get asked all the time is how to put some sparkle into lip balm. One way is to use iridescent glitter. This can get gritty and is usually meant for younger girls. I used Silver Mica because it is a great way to add some shimmer in an elegant way that women can enjoy too. This recipe can also be used year round without the color and shimmer, as it is very moisturizing. Let’s make this together!
Recipe: 100 grams or 3.53 ounces.
Carefully weigh ingredients in a microwave-safe container. Do not add any color yet. Microwave in short bursts, stirring in between. Be careful not to overheat. Add 1 small toothpick amount of the Black Lip Balm Color. This amount and is not exact. The amount used in this recipe did not tint the lips. Using the 1.5 cc Scoop, add 4 scoops of Silver Mica. Again, this can vary depending on the desired amount of shimmer. Stir well. Pour into jars or tubes. Cap when cooled and solidified. This recipe will fill approximately 37 Baby Lip Balm Jars.
This recipe was very popular among the staff. It has a very creamy feeling on the lips but is tacky enough to keep the shimmer from the Silver Mica on the lips. I used a light amount of Silver Mica, but you may add up to 2 teaspoons in a 100 gram batch. Make sure you plate test in gradual amounts before adding in the entire 2 teaspoons to find the right amount of shimmer for you. Have fun trying out this recipe!
