♥ Make your own lipstick

I've got this old lipgloss/listick palette that I absolutely love, the colours are really pigmented, but they don't come out dry like some lipsticks can.. but I've used up all the pinks since I usually wear pink on my lips.

Then I've got one Mac lipstick (bright pink) that I really HATE, it makes my lips look chapped lol and it really doesn't look nice at all..

So I decided to mix them together and make the perfect lipstick ;)

I added Shea Butter and a tiny bit of Olive Wax to make the right consistency (you can use Vaseline, but I dont use mineral oil) and it came out great.

Oh you can also add peppermint oil for a soothing feel on your lips and nice smell (I forgot to do this lol)

The result


A way too big tin from Superdrug.


Put a bowl like this in a pot of boling water (lower it when you put the bowl in)


 The old lipstick/lipgloss palette


 So I DID take pictures before I used everything, only thing is I didn't have the memory card in it was in my Macbook, and in my new camers it doesn't save in an internal memory (!?) so they were all gone by the time I finished haha.

Bright pink Mac Lipstick, Light pink Bodyshop lipstick, Medium pink shimmery Collection 2000 lipstick.


 I added a tiny bit of olive Wax and almost a teaspoon of Shea Butter


 Have you tried this, and what do you think of the result?

  4. This is so awesome! I had no idea of this...I have a couple of lipsticks that are very drying as well so I might have a go at this technique : )

  12. What an amazing idea, I have a few lipsticks that I don't really use because they are either too drying, too pale or too dark. Thanks for this!

  15. definitely interesting. i like how you suggest Shea Butter and Olive Wax because i've heard of others doing this but using vaseline and was never too keen on putting mineral oil on my lips :P but i'll definitely give this a try! thanks <3
