The Ultimate Tiramisu Lip Balm You Will Love 3


Have you ever had tiramisu? This decadent Italian dessert is made 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 started thinking about creamy desserts.

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

NOTES

Did I succeed in making a Tiramisu Lip Balm? The gals in the warehouse obviously think so, because I’ve been asked to make another batch just for them. Request your sample of the Ultimate Tiramisu Lip Balm before they are gone! I’ve sent a limited number to shipping, and I can’t promise they will all go into your boxes!

Enjoy!
