|My mom always tells me that I need to put on lip gloss to “make your cute lips perfectly kissable.” Normally I just roll my eyes and say “Moooommmm!” However, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, I figure that some gals want perfectly kissable lips. Today I’m going to make Strawberry Swirl Lip Gloss, using the Lip Gloss for the Lip Brush recipe. Yummy! I’m just going to have to remember to keep away the silly teenage daughters of the staff! This recipe fills approximately 50 Lip Brush Pens.
You will need:
First, we need to measure the Carnauba Wax and Castor Oil. After measuring the ingredients, microwave until the wax is melted. I prefer to add the color and flavor after the wax is melted, but you can add all ingredients before melting in the microwave.
Add flavor. For this recipe, we recommend using between 2 and 4 grams of Strawberry Swirl Flavor. This can translate to milliliters as well.
Add color. I like to draw the tip of a clean pipette through the lip balm color and then transfer the color to the lip gloss mixture with that pipette. I think that looks right, so I’m going to add the mica. I dip the pipette into the mica and use the tip to scoop a little into the lip gloss.
Fill the brushes with the warm mixture. 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 can never be advanced into the brush.
Aren’t these great? We now have fantastic lip brushes that will go to some lucky customers! (And you now know how to make perfectly kissable lips.)
