How to make Tinted Lip Balm at Home
I’m Surbhi.I am a student and I love makeup!! Recently I’ve become quite obsessed about lip balms, especially the tinted ones fascinate me a lot.I love them more than lipsticks and lip glosses because they moisturise my lips. Tinted lip balms give my lip[s some colour and shine.
So here I was looking for reviews of some great tinted lip balms. By chance I came across a page telling me how to make my own tinted lip balm.
To start with, I collected the following ingredients:
- A lipstick of my choice – an old one.I loved the colour at a time but I don’t use it anymore so thought of experimenting with it!!
- A jar of Vaseline (you can use a chapstick if you want, it solidifies better!! )
- Little olive oil
- An empty jar (its an empty jar of a gloss I used long back)
- A spatula (you can use anything you want to use for mixing the ingredients) and a plastic bowl
And these were the steps I followed:
In the bowl, I emptied the Vaseline jar( mine wasn’t completely full) and added 2-3 drops of olive oil. Make sure you don’t add lots of oil as it will spoil the consistency – just a few drops.
Then I heated the bowl in the microwave for around 40-60secs.During this step, make sure that you don’t keep it in there for too long. Keep an eye on it and as soon as you feel it has melted, take it out!!
Now I took my old lipstick, cut a small piece of it and added it into the melted Vaseline. I mixed it and again microwaved it for around 15secs.
After taking it out, I mixed it properly and put it in an empty jar.My superlovely brown lip balm was then ready!!
This was the lipstick I used…
And this is my final product in the jar!!
And these are the swatches.On the left is my balm and the right is the lipstick.
And this is another one I made using a chapstick instead of Vaseline and I find it better!!
If you want, you can not only use your lipsticks but also your favourite pigments, blush or eyeshadows for this purpose. It is so easy!! And the results are lovely. After melting and mixing, you can also add glitters for shimmer and yau can also add your favourite flavoured essence for the perfect smell and flavour!!
Yippeee! i jus love this thing.Now I don’t need to buy any tinted lip balm because this is super quick and easy!! So here is my 1st blog people and tell me how it was. I am open to all suggestions and criticism.
PS-This one is not only for the people who just love lip balms n those who want to use their broken lipsticks or try out new colours on their lips.
I am sure all of us have tried a red lipstick but never used it because of the fear that it looks too bold. So that red lipstick can now be used by all of us with confidence and grace!! I am yet to try it on my red lipstick. Will post the pic as soon as i do it!!
