Buttercream Lip Oil Treatment

Here in Utah we are always in need of something to put on our lips because it is so very dry here. So I came up with a recipe that is a treat for your lips! I used ingredients that I enjoy but are also simple and cost effective for those that don’t have a large amount of ingredients in their cabinet. I wanted to come up with something that could be used daily for men or women that helps gently break up the dry skin on the lips without leaving the tackiness of a lip gloss.Sweet Almond Oil and Avocado Oil are great for this recipe because they are in the moderate range of oils as far as heaviness feels. I have really come to love Sweet Almond Oil in that it soaks in quickly without very much residue.

Buttercream is a great flavor oil. It also smells really good when you are pipetting this recipe into the lip pens. It reminds me of eating buttercream frosting, cake, and ice cream at a birthday party. You can’t help but love Vitamin E Acetate. I enjoy putting it in a lot of things that I make at home because it is just so good for your skin.

Aloe Butter
Sweet Almond Oil
Deodorized Cocoa Butter
Avocado Oil
Buttercream Flavor Oil
Vitamin E Acetate
Microwave Safe Container
Lip Brush Pens

Recipe: Yields 100 grams or 3.53 ounces.

Recipe in Grams
30 grams Aloe Butter
25 grams Sweet Almond Oil
20 grams Deodorized Cocoa Butter
15 grams Avocado Oil
5 grams Beeswax
4 grams Buttercream Flavor Oil
1 gram Vitamin E Acetate
Recipe in Ounces
1.06 ounces Aloe Butter
0.88 ounces Sweet Almond Oil
0.71 ounces Deodorized Cocoa Butter
0.53 ounces Avocado Oil
0.18 ounces Beeswax
0.14 ounces Buttercream Flavor Oil
0.04 ounces Vitamin E Acetate
Recipe in Percentages
30% Aloe Butter
25% Sweet Almond Oil
20% Deodorized Cocoa Butter
15% Avocado Oil
5% Beeswax
4% Buttercream Flavor Oil
1% Vitamin E Acetate


Weigh out all ingredients into your microwave safe container except for the Buttercream Flavor Oil and Vitamin E Acetate. Melt in the microwave in short bursts until the beeswax is completely melted, stirring frequently. You will have to wait for the mixture to cool quite a bit before adding the flavor oil and Vitamin E. Because this mixture is a little more fluid with very little Beeswax I did not have to get very technical about when to add the rest of the ingredients because it takes so long for the ingredients to solidify. Once the container felt lukewarm to the touch I added the flavor oil and Vitamin E.

I ended up filling 54 of our new and improved Lip Brush Pens. Wow! I grossly underestimated how many containers I needed and I was running up and down the stairs a few times to get just a few more Lip Brush Pens from the warehouse. Needless to say, I was glistening (women don’t sweat-we glisten!).

I chose the Doe Foot tip and it is really wonderful. It is a porous, velveety tip that is perfect for your more fluid recipes. Those tips require a little bit of muscle to put in to the top of the pen but once they are in they are not going anywhere. The bottom of the Lip Brush Pen makes a clicking sound when you are turning it so you know when you are pushing your product up into the tip. I have used many, many kinds of lip gloss, lipsticks, etc. over the years (I L-O-V-E anything cosmetic related) and this container is a very nice high-end choice. I can’t stop using my Lip Brush Pen. I love the sound of the click and the taste of the Buttercream. Have fun trying this out at home!

    Hi, Joy! I agree – Buttercream is such a delight!

    I ma curious, however, are the lip brush pens reusable? can I just take off the cap and refill them? I have never used them before, I am considering them for my nail cuticle treatment, but I would also love to reuse them. I’m a cuticle cream junkie so I tend to use the products sevral times per day, it would be a shame to use a new pen every 2 weeks 🙂

    Great post! Going home to make a buttercream lip balm 😀

      The Lip Brush Pens are only meant for one time use. Once you get that tip in there it really isn’t going anywhere. Sorry!

    Oh, I’d been wondering what the doe foot tip looked like! I like the angled surface; I may have to look into getting some of these in the near future!

    Aloe butter – now I know what to do with some of the butters I have! Make test lip balms. That’ll give me a chance to try a couple of flavor oil (never used them before) and use up the small amounts of different butters I have on hand.

    Great post!

    I can’t help but think how perfect this would be with a bit of mica in it to tint it!
    By chance is Red Iron Oxide lip safe?

      The Red Iron Oxide (or we call it Brick Red) is not safe for lip balms. Try one of our oil soluble lip colors instead.

    I am currently on vacation, so I can’t try this now, but when I get back, I will have to try it. I am thinking I will put some chamomile infused oil in it and perhaps some type of mint as I’m not really one for buttercream, but it looks lucious. Cindy
