A couple of weeks ago, I went to a workshop dedicated to Mineral Makeup for Lips at Soap & More. (http://www.soapandmore.com)
As usual, the workshop was great. It was hands-on and full of tips and tricks. We made four different products and in doing so, experimented with lots of different materials.
The most fun lip product for me was the lip gloss. We packaged the lip gloss in lip balm tubes with wand applicators. Many of us chose to include a color in the mix to give it an extra pizzazz. It was great!
Over the past week, I have been working on recreating the lip gloss, with a couple of my own alterations, of course. My goal was to modify the recipe that I learned at the workshop into something a bit more liquidy. As I suspected, this has a lot of do with the carrier oil and wax that you use. Fortunately, after much experimenting, I’m proud to say that I’ve hit on the combination that suits my tastes. The side benefit of having so many different combinations of ingredients is that I got to try out different colors and flavours in each tube.
