Confession: I have very dry skin and lips. In the winter they get really bad… so bad they sometimes bleed. OUCH! I was thrilled when I discovered this really easy way to make lip-gloss at home.
This lip-gloss will leave your lips shiny and keep the chap away! I found these cute little heart containers at the dollar spot at Target (love Target!). Want to know how to make your own?
Homemade Lip Gloss
What you will need:
3/4 cup crisco or palm oil (palm oil melts at about 90-95 degrees and is non hydrogenated)
2 packages of Kool-aid (any flavor will do- I used cherry and strawberry)
8 small containers with lids (mine were at the dollar spot at Target- wash a clean before using)
stickers or other decorations
microwave safe bowl
spouted bowl or measuring cup for pouring
Wash and dry these thoroughly…
Melt the Crisco- it took about a minute in my microwave.
Mix in the Kool-Aid (some of it will float to the bottom… try not to obsess over it like I did- once poured it will be just fine!)
Pout into the containers (it helps if you use a spouted bowl to pour)
Wait about 15 minutes and it will be solid.. ready to use. Simple and inexpensive!!! Now try to refrain from eating it… you know you want to! 😛
It’s that time again for Project Party Weekend. Everyone has just blown me away with all the creative things you have come up with. Thanks again for linking up…I would be honored if you grabbed one of my buttons to display so others can join in the party. Thanks!
