How FUN is homemade lip gloss? Well, about twenty times more fun than it should be when you turn it green, stuff it with glitter, and offer it up with a label that says “Kiss Me I’m Irish”! The perfect way to welcome in St. Patrick’s Day!
Homemade Glitter Kiss Gloss
3 tablespoons beeswax (about 1 oz) (Buy it from Whole Foods)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
4 tablespoons shea butter
4 green candy melts
1 teaspoon green glitter (I prefer the very fine Martha Stewart brand of glitter)
18 lip balm containers (we used mini plastic bead containers, purchased from JoAnn)
5 drops of peppermint essential oil
1. Melt beeswax in a small pan over low heat. Add coconut oil, shea butter, candy melt, glitter, and essential oil to the mixture, if desired.
2. Using a small spoon, pour the melted liquid into your lip balm containers. Sprinkle a small amount of extra glitter on top of your gloss, if desired.
3. Cool completely to harden. Cover with cap and decorate or label if you’d like.
