Viscous Lip Gloss – Day 2
|Yesterday we made the Viscous Lip Gloss. It didn’t really set up and it was really clear, even after 30 minutes! Well when I came into work this morning I discovered that it had become more viscous and opaque! I guess I forgot to account for how much heat can build up in the kitchen during the day. I do have some important information that I have learned from this event. Well… make that two.
The first thing I learned is when making a lip gloss, if the kitchen is warm, it will take longer to set up. The second thing I learned is that this lip gloss will not pass the pocket test. This means that if put in a pants pocket, the lip gloss will melt and loose its viscosity. That means the best container for this lip gloss is a lip brush pen or a doe foot applicator. If I were making this for myself, I might leave it in a jar only if it was meant to stay on my vanity and be applied with a lip brush.
I also learned that observing a product/formulation over hours or days is just as important as the first initial minutes. What do you think?
