Fall is here just in time to highlight our lip gloss tubes with wand applicators. Here is a simple formula to try at home with just a few ingredients:
96% soft oil of your choice. (can be combined with several oils)
1% Vegan Based Wax Blend
1% Vitamin E Oil
1% Flavour (ensure is it oil based)
1% Mica or Lake colour of your choice (quantity depends on the colour and intensity of the desired shade)
Melt the wax and oil at low heat on top of the stove in a small stainless steel measuring cup. Keep your pot small for small recipes. We used 1/4 cup for 2 .x 11ml size lip gloss tubes
Remove from the heat and add your colour and flavor, stir until totally combined. The mixture will still be warm and can be poured within 1 or 2 minutes. This recipe is not for lip balm roll-up tubes. It has a much looser viscosity created especially for lip gloss tubes with wand applicator.
We used Abyssinian seed oil due to its comedogenic rating of 1 which signifies a very low chance of skin irritations. It is a very rich super light oil with no noticeable odour or flavor which does not interfere with the final product.
Shade test: to see if you are happy with the colour, take some and spread it onto a paper towel. If it is not too hot, try some on the back of your hand. Add more colour if required.
*Cautionary note. If using essential oils for flavor, do your homework. Some essential oils can burn your lips with very little quantity. Ones that come to mind: peppermint, cinnamon, allspice & clove
