Flat White Coffee Lip Balm

FlateWhiteCoffeLBWhen I was in college, I would get up on Saturday mornings to go have coffee and breakfast with my best friend. Today we are hundreds of miles away, living different lives. While it is no longer practical for us to chat over breakfast, we send emails, letters and instant messages. I miss those mornings. In the spirit of nostalgia, I wanted to make a lip balm to celebrate those long morning chats. Come join me for the perfect coffee lover’s lip balm!

Love Notes Lip Balm

lettersI am a hopeless romantic. Seeing pictures of flowers and hearing plans for candlelit dinners put stars in my eyes. That being said, I think one of the most romantic things ever are love letters. The thought of a billet-doux just sends me sighing longingly. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to celebrate with all of the romantics out there with a Love Notes Lip Balm. Come join me and we can share stories of the little things that make our hearts go pitter-patter.

I love how creamy and flavorful this lip balm is. While I did tint the lip balm a soft satin pink color, I think this is a great lip balm for both men and women. It is sweet, fruity and easy to apply. Yummy!

Simply Peppermint Lip Balm

Gorgeous Label Designed By Our Graphics Department
Gorgeous Label Designed By Our Graphics Department

We have featured a number of peppermint flavored lip balms but when I went looking, I was shocked to discover that we didn’t have a simple peppermint lip balm. It has always been Cocoa Mint, Vanilla Mint and even Peppermint Toffee Bark! I was stunned to find that such a staple recipe was missing from our recipe collection. Today I want to remedy that.

While today I want the only flavor to be peppermint, I wanted to add little sweetener to the mix. I think the sweetener makes the peppermint more delightful and gives it some oomph to the peppermint taste.

Adding Flavor

From here, you can either pipette the mixture into your tubes or you can use a filling tray. I will be using a filling tray because they are a simple and fast method of filling a lot of tubes at one time. If you are using a filling tray, insert your tubes into your tray. Flood the tray with your melted lip balm. Allow the mixture to cool. Scrape off the excess. I like to use a plastic putty knife. Remove the tubes from the tray and cap.

Filled Lip balm Tray

If you are going to pipette the lip balm into the tubes, fill the tube until you get a dome of liquid material at the top. Wax shrinks when it cools and doing this helps insure that you get a very pretty top. Fill all of your tubes making sure they are domed on the top before they cool. (You may need to reheat your jar of lip solutions during this process. This is normal and to be expected.) Allow the tubes to cool and cap.

Mulled Apple Cider Lip Balm

Hot Apple Cider
Hot Apple Cider

Every family with children knows that kids can have some hilarious one liners and mixed up words.  I was definitely one of those children. I have always had an affinity for books and as a child some of my holiday favorites were Little Women, Hans Brinker and Eight Cousins. All of these books were written long ago and have different vocabulary than modern literature. I remember stopping my mother in the kitchen and asking her if we could make muled cider. That little question made her laugh until she had tears in her eyes. That was when I learned it was mulled not muled.

While it isn’t often my family made spiced apple cider, I love starting a pot of cider on the stove. I can then make my mother laugh about the silly things us kids used to say while we watch leaves swirl across the lawn and the pot of cider steam. I am hoping we will be able to make some mulled apple cider this Thanksgiving but I also wanted to send everyone home with this particular family memory. Today we are going to make a mulled apple cider lip balm! While the lip balm won’t be hot, it certainly will be just as spectacular!

Thanksgiving is in just three weeks and I am so excited. I have dug out recipes for family favorites such as soft, puffy rolls; tart cranberry jelly; sweet potato bake crusted with brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans; and of course the traditional pies such as pumpkin, pecan and apple. I promise that no one leaves my table without having found something that tickles their taste buds and fills their tummy.

Yesterday I made a really tasty tiramisu lip balm. I decided to expand on the little theme and make a corresponding lip scrub to match the lip balm. I may not have a purse full of lip balms, glosses and tints like Taylor, but I do like using a lip scrub as part of my twice weekly face pampering.

Have you ever had tiramisu? This decadent Italian dessert of coffee soaked sponge cake layered with a whipped custard of eggs, sugar and mascarpone cheese, and dusted with cocoa. Can you give a deep longing sigh with me? I think I’m hungry now!

So how did I make this “Ultimate” Tiramisu Lip Balm? It all started with the new Cheesecake Flavor and my experimenting to discover a blend that could use this yummy flavor.

I’ve made my choice, I’m making a tiramisu lip balm.

Let’s go make this delectable lip balm that (hopefully) will taste like tiramisu.

Request a Sample of the New Flavors with Your Order!

I’ve had so much fun trying our new flavors. I decided you would definitely like to try them too, so I made a lip balm collection! This whole collection was made using the Shea Butter Lip Solutions and the 0.25 oz Screw Top Tins. Let’s go check out what lip balms I made with the new flavors.

Lip Balm Collection.
Lip Balm Collection.
Bubble Gum: This tastes just like the chewy pink bubble gum that made the best bubbles when I was a little girl. I used 3% Bubble Gum (9 grams for a single jar of Lip Solutions) and colored this lip balm with a touch of Ruby and White Oil Soluble Lip Colors.

Red Licorice: When I was a young girl, my mom worked down the street from a pharmacy/gift shop. During the summer, I would walk down the street to the pharmacy and buy treats and toys. On the rare occasions that the pharmacy would have red licorice, I would buy a bag and walk back to share the bag with my mom. This flavor reminds me of that summer and the best cuddles with mom. I used 3% Red Licorice (8 grams for a single jar of Lip Solutions) and colored this lip balm with a touch of Ruby and Black Oil Soluble Lip Colors.

Cheesecake: What more delicious way to say dessert than to offer cheesecake? While I think fast and simple no-bake cheesecakes are a nice treat, this flavor reminds me of the sinful New York Style baked cheesecakes that take forever to bake. Rich and creamy, this is a treat for your lips! I used 3% Cheesecake (8 grams for a single jar of Lip Solutions) and colored this lip balm with a touch of White Oil Soluble Lip Colors.

Cherry Cheesecake: While Cheesecake on its own by many, there are those who love toppings on their cheesecake. I wanted to share an example of a cherry topped cheesecake that might convince me that cherries taste good in places other than fresh off the tree! I used 2% Cheesecake (6 grams for a single jar of Lip Solutions), 1% Black Cherry (3 grams for a single jar of Lip Solutions) and colored this lip balm with a touch of Ruby and Black Oil Soluble Lip Colors.

Strawberry Cheesecake: I can’t seem to leave the Cheesecake Flavor alone! I seriously adore it and I think you must have this flavor in your lip balm flavors collection. I decided to mix things up and add Strawberry Swirl to Cheesecake to get the perfect strawberry topped cheesecake. I used 2% Cheesecake (6 grams for a single jar of Lip Solutions), 1% Strawberry Swirl (3 grams for a single jar of Lip Solutions) and colored this lip balm with a touch of Ruby and White Oil Soluble Lip Colors.

I’m sending samples of these lip balms to the Shipping Department. They won’t last long, so request your sample today!
