Ever wonder what to do with the leftover lipstics down in the tube that you cannot use? Wonder no more, with 1 stub of lip stick you can make 4 different shades of one tint of lipstick, and have 4 gifts for that one granddaughter or several pots of the same color for several people.

How to Make Lip Gloss, Homemade


  1. Scrape out the nub of the lipstic. Place all ingredients either in a small pot or microwaveable bowl. Melt all ingredients slowly and then pour into lip gloss pots and set aside and let cool.
  2. to make 4 different shades of the same color: Melt all ingredients together and start with just 2 drops of oil/flavoring and 1/4 of the lipstick. Once melted, fill first lip gloss pot. Then add another fourth of the lipstick nub and 2 more drops of scent/flavor and pour another pot. Then add another fourth of the lipstick and 2 more drops and fill a pot. Then the final fourth and 2 more drops of scent/flavor.
  3. You can mix colors together or leave it plain. You can use flavor or just scent. It is a way to get the tint of that special lipstick and hang onto it a few more days.
