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!

Recipe: (Makes 1 ounce or 28 grams. Fills approximately 14 lip brush pens.)
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.
