Make Your Own Shimmer Lip Gloss

Here is an intresting recipe for Making Your Own Shimmer Lip Gloss by Bella Sugar. In this recipe, Bella Sugar uses food coloring, but I would recommend comestically safe coloring in this recipe. Also make sure that your use cosemetically safe glitter.

For this particular recipe you will need:

•food coloring
•an empty container
•1 tsp. sugar flavoring (i.e. Pixy Stix)
•a pinch of glitter
•1/4 tsp of hot water
•1 heaping tbsp. petroleum jelly

For three fool-proof directions, read more.

•STEP 1: In a small mixing bowl stir the petroleum jelly, 1/4 tsp. of hot water, and the Pixy Stix until the sugar is dissolved.

•STEP 2: Then, slowly add in one drop of food coloring and a pinch of glitter. Stir well and quickly. Continue to add in food coloring and flavoring until you reach your desired taste and color. Let the mixture cool for about three minutes.

•STEP 3: Scoop out the contents in the bowl and neatly pack it into a clean, empty lip gloss container — voila!
