|I love lipsticks, lip balms, and lip glosses. I have stashes in my purse, my car, on my desk, and through out my house. What can I say? I am an addict.
I love this Firm & Glossy Lip Balm recipe for the texture and appearance. This is an incredible lip balm that is firmer and creates a soft glossy shine. Want to add a little shimmer to this fantastic lip balm? Try adding a little bit of Ultrafine Iridescent Glitter for that perfect shimmer. Ooh la la.
Collect needed items:
Weigh all ingredients except the Vitamin E Acetate and Cranberry Flavor Oil into your microwave safe container. Microwave in short bursts until all ingredients are melted. The Candelilla Wax and Carnauba Wax will take the most time to melt, but if you stir the lip balm after the other oils have been heated, they will melt quickly. Once the mixture is melted, add the Vitamin E Acetate and Cranberry Flavor Oil. Stir until all of the flavor has been incorporated. Fill tubes or jars. Cool. Label.
Notes: The Candelilla Wax and Carnauba Wax are both hard waxes that have high melt point temperatures. Make sure you heat the mixture until it is crystal clear. This will prevent your lip balm from fractionating due to the waxes that had not been melted completely.
