Simply Kissable Lip Gloss

I may not hold the title of the Queen of Lip Balms since Taylor generally has a collection of lip balms, glosses and lip sticks in her purse. (The smallest collection I’ve ever seen in her purse at one time was a mere 4 lip products!) Even though my pocket or purse only holds 1 (or maybe 2) lip balms at a time, I’m still fond of occasionally using a lip gloss.

I’ll be using the Lip Gloss for the Lip Brush recipe found in our Recipe Collection. I did make a few changes for the flavor, but I think those changes were for the better!

Note: Q.S. means quantity sufficient. You do not need much Silver Mica or Yellow Oil Soluble Lip Balm Color. This recipe needs so little that we can’t measure it! So we use Q.S. to say use as much as you need to achieve the right color, flavor, etc.

Begin by weighing the Carnauba Wax and Castor Oil. After measuring the ingredients, microwave using short time bursts until the wax is melted. Add flavors. Now the color and mica can be added. I used the tip of a clean pipette and pulled it across the top of the color and then used that pipette to stir the mixture until the color was completely mixed in. I then used a new pipette and put the tip into the mica to scoop a small amount into the lip gloss. Using the pipette I used for the color, I stirred the mixture to decide if it needed more mica or not. Once you are satisfied with the color, fill the brushes while the mixture is still warm. 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 will be difficult to advance into the brush.

    How do you get the lip gloss into the tube? Do you use the pipette to dispense it?

      Yes, a pipette is used and then the tip is placed on the tube. It is very easy yet looks hard.

    Oh, I have people asking me for gloss and have yet to make any. Have you tried coloring it with lip colorant? How much would you use? I guess you could also use a colored mica, so long as it’s lip safe. Thanks for the ideas!

      Any of the oil soluble colors are perfect for lip glosses and lip balms. Use the color lightly so you don’t make a lip stick. :-)

    I have never tried to make a lip product, but I think I am going to give this one a try. I have some younger relatives who absolutely live for lip products…hehehe
    Thank You,

      I think you will have more fun than you can imagine. Lip products are simple, fast and really good confidence builders.

    Good Morning Andee,

    I’m hoping you can help me with something. I made the following lip gloss last night (very loosely based on champagne lip gloss, I had to substitute almost everything!)

    Recipe in Grams
    2 grams Beeswax
    20 grams Aloe Butter (I used Mango)
    12 grams High Melt Point Shea (I had regular)
    1 gram Vitamin E Acetate
    41 grams Macadamia Nut Oil (I used jojobo oil)
    20 grams Cherry Seed ( used Meadowfoam oil)
    1 gram Orchid Extract
    3 grams Champagne Flavor Oil (I used 1.5 g vanilla flavor oil, 1.5 g cherry flavor oil)

    I also added some red mica

    Then I decided I should add sugar baby for the sweetness, so I added 2 grams and this might be my problem. It is good, but just a bit too fluid. I have both the doe tips and brush tubes to put it into. Is there any thing I can do to make it a bit thicker? My guess was to add more beeswax and remelt, but I already have my additives and extracts added. I hope I can save this – I have almost 4 oz!! That’s a lot of gloss ;-)

    Thanks
    Dani

      I would add more wax as you have considered. I think it will make your life much easier! I think you will need 1 to 2 more grams. A happy middle way might be 1.5 grams. This will make a drastic difference in what you have ready.

    You must have read my mind! Sunday evening while I was making lotion I looked at my lip brush pens and decided it was time to test them out and was trying to decide on a recipe. This was the first email I checked Monday morning and…yay! Decision made. I’ve got everything except the silver mica, but I can add that next time. Thanks much! I will be making this recipe this week.

    Hi, I am new to your blog and I’m excited about your new lip safe colors! I have sensitivities to various things though so I would like to know the ingredients that are in the color, I could not find this, it may be right in front of me! Also if we use this in our products to sell what would we put on the ingredient label?

    I’m excited about the lip gloss recipe, I have been really looking for a natural fun lip gloss to try!

    Thanks so much for any help!
