Viscous Lip Gloss 1

Today I wanted to make a thick lip gloss. I wanted something that could be put in a pot and applied with a lip brush or finger. I am a big fan of thick and shiny glosses. Come join me in the kitchen as we make a thick lip gloss! 

The final lip gloss wasn’t as thick as I wanted but it was still very nice. This lip gloss was still a little too fluid for my preference. As you can see, the lip gloss was still very clear when set up. The lip gloss was smooth, and creamy and just a little tacky from all of the castor oil. If I were to make a thick lip gloss I would add some more solid oils. I just might dump these back and add 2%-4% of beeswax just to make things a little more viscous. I did not flavor this lip gloss, but you can if you are interested.
