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.
