Kissable Lips 9


My mom always tells me that I need to put on lip gloss to “make your cute lips perfectly kissable.” Normally I just roll my eyes and say “Moooommmm!” However, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, I figure that some gals want perfectly kissable lips. Today I’m going to make Strawberry Swirl Lip Gloss, using the Lip Gloss for the Lip Brush recipe. Yummy! I’m just going to have to remember to keep away the silly teenage daughters of the staff! This recipe fills approximately 50 Lip Brush Pens.

You will need:

Castor Oil
Carnauba Wax
Strawberry Swirl Flavor Oil
Ruby Lip Balm Color
Silver Mica
Small transfer pipettes
Lip Brush Pens
Scale
glass beaker or jar
Microwave

Recipe:
100 grams Castor Oil
1 gram Carnauba Wax
2 to 4 grams Strawberry Swirl Flavor Oil
MMS Lip Balm Colors of your choice

First, we need to measure the Carnauba Wax and Castor Oil. After measuring the ingredients, microwave until the wax is melted. I prefer to add the color and flavor after the wax is melted, but you can add all ingredients before melting in the microwave.

Add flavor. For this recipe, we recommend using between 2 and 4 grams of Strawberry Swirl Flavor, this can translate to milliliters as well.

Add color. I like to draw the tip of a clean pipette through the lip balm color and then transfer the color to the lip gloss mixture with that pipette. I think that looks right, so I’m going to add the mica. I dip the pipette into the mica and use the tip to scoop a little into the lip gloss.

Fill the brushes with the still warm mixture. Leave them standing upright until they have cooled. If the mixture gets into the small metal tube before it is cooled, the metal can cause the mixture to solidify over the opening and material can never be advanced into the brush.

Aren’t these great? We now have fantastic lip brushes that will go to some lucky customers! (And you now know how to make perfectly kissable lips.)

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

      filamemakia-
      Lip balms can easily be colored in smaller batches. I suggest a scale after the materials have been melted. I suggest this so that each new jar of mixture has the same amount of wax. Colors can be added to lip balm mixtures by the toothpick. It doesn’t take much color for tinting. Mica can be added, but please remember that this product adds a gritty feeling if used in excess.

    oh gosh i forgot to ask abou the flavor oil too! sorry, with the smaller batches. im doing a certain color and flavor for each of my friends so how do i measure how much flavor goes in? and is it ok to dive up a large batch like this after its melted? sorry im asking a lot but im a rookie!

    How small are your batches going to be? This will help me with your flavor and mica questions.

    Yes, you can divide a large batch after you have melted it.

    Don’t worry about asking questions! Questions help rookies become professionals!

    im dividing the recipe you have a the simple gloss pen. it says it makes 50 pens. so i want to divide up 10, so i can make 5 of each color and flavor. if thats possible. if its not i can divide it up by 5 and make 10 of each…thank you so much!

      filamemakia-
      Take the total weight of the mixture. Divide by 10, or move the decimal to the left once. Now add flavor and color to your desire and fill the pens. This is pretty easy. Do plan on using small quantities for this project.
