Tantalizing Tangerine Lip Gloss 2


Finished Lip Gloss

Finished Lip Gloss

I love lip products. Lip balms, lip sticks, lip glosses, lip stains, etc. You name it, I have and love it. One thing that makes for some difficulties is that no lip product is  alike. Some are thick and heavy, some are light, others are long lasting while yet others are super shiny! With all of the possibilities out there, it is difficult to choose what to make and wear. Today I wanted to make a light weight lip gloss that has lots of shine. Come join me!

Weigh everything except the Vitamin E Natural, Squalane, extracts and essential oil into a microwave safe container. Heat until everything is liquid. Add the remaining ingredients. Allow to cool the pipette into the doe foot pens. Insert the doe foot, cap and label. Enjoy!

Notes: I am in love with this lip gloss. It is ultra light while having some staying power. This is perfect just by itself or for adding some shine on top of a lip tint or lip stick color.  I liked how subtle the Tangerine was. It was not overpowering, which means it is perfect for date nights when you are going out for dinner. This lip gloss will not distract or detract from your food. Next time I think I would add just a little bit of Sugar Baby Flavor Oil to make it more enjoyable.

    Hey,

    you may want to double-check your numbers. I see that 30g of mango butter is 30%. Then all the other numbers in grams should also be the same in percentages, yet some you have divided by 2, and some have been multiplied by 2.

    Otherwise looks really nice,
    B.
