Making a Deep Plum Lip Tint 5


Finished Lip Tints

Finished Lip Tints

I love all kinds of lip products and often times, the more colorful they are, the better. I have done a few blogs on how to create a lip tint but I think they are always worth returning to. After all, there are thousands of colors out there and popular colors change rapidly. It can be hard to keep up! Today I wanted to make a deep purple/plum color worthy of the runway yet simple enough to make in your own kitchen. Come join me!

Preparing Lip Solutions

Preparing Lip Solutions

One thing I find hard about most lipsticks available on the market is that they are either unflavored or flavored with something I don’t necessarily like. That being said, I didn’t want to have to taste peppermint, orange or cherry every time I apply my lip tint. So I added a little Sugar Baby to my lip tint so it would be sweet without having a specific flavor. Wow! I am really happy with how my finished lip tint turned out.

Recipe Note:
Q.S. means quantity sufficient. The amount of color varies from person to person until you find the amount you like. Some of the colors in this need so little that it can be difficult to weigh the amount needed! So we use Q.S. to say use as much as you need to achieve the right color, flavor, etc.

Adding Blue Color

Adding Blue Color

Open the jar of lip solutions and set aside the lid. Heat the material gently until it has melted. Once the lip solutions is fully melted, add the Sugar Baby Flavor Oil. Stir the material well. Once the flavor oil has been added, you can start adding the color. I started with my blue so I could make sure I didn’t make it to dark.

Adding Ruby Color

Adding Ruby Color

When you think you are closer to your desired color, place one drop of the mixture of the lip tint onto a cool plate. This is what we call the plate test. This helps you to make sure you have the desired color.

After my first round of the plate test, I added some more Ruby color and a tiny bit of black. Play around with adding various amounts of color until you are satisfied with the finished color. My finished color works for me, but your personal preferences may change the amounts used.

Once I was satisfied with the color, I filled my lip balm tubes. Don’t forget! You can add some silver mica for shimmer should you so desire. While I didn’t add any mica to this particular lip tint, I think it would be awesome! Allow the lip balm to cool and enjoy!
