Lipstick made from Crayons
1/2 tsp Jojoba oil or 1/2 tsp castor oil (will make a glossier lipstick)
1/2 tsp Shea butter or 1/2 tsp cocoa butter (will make lipstick slightly more firm)
1 drop vitamin E; helps it last longer
1 pinch zinc oxide; offers protection against UVA and UVB sun rays
You will need a small, heat resistant container, such as a stainless steel measuring cup. Use the smallest one you have.
Melt this mixture in a stainless steel pop or measuring cup, using the smallest one you have. Melt this mixture by putting it over a pan of simmering water, while stirring it constantly (small stir stick)
As soon as all the ingredients are melted and well combined, pour them into your containers.
Wax contracts as it cools, so you will get a dent, or maybe even a small hole in the center of your tube if that is what you are using. You can reduce this effect by tapping the container on the counter as it cools. Do not top it up for this will fall off when you use the lipstick.
You may also pour this into a container and use a brush for application.
Try different color combinations and enjoy.
