My tinted moisture lip whip recipe smoothes, protects and nourishes lips on the days you don't need a long lasting lipstick. So lips not only feel great, they look smoother and healthier reducing your chance of chapped lips from overuse of long wear lipsticks.

I LOVE long lasting liquid matte lipsticks! They are perfect for evenings out because I don’t have to worry about my lipstick coming off an hour into drinks. Unfortunately my lips don’t love them quite as much. That staying power comes with a consequence – dry lips. So to keep my lips looking their best despite my liquid matte lipstick obsession, I created a tinted moisture whip lip recipe.

This tinted moisture lip whip recipe protects, smoothes and nourishes dry, thirsty lips while also adding healthy looking color. Use this moisture lip whip to keep lips in tip top shop in between those days you can’t live without all day lip coverage. You’ll find that your lips survive your long wearing lipstick better. And, if your lips are already chapped, you’ll notice smoother lips instantly!

Ingredients:

.3 oz. castor oil
.25 oz. kokum butter
.25 oz. candelilla wax
.25 oz. pharmaceutical grade lanolin
.25 oz. walnut oil (or other nourishing carrier oil)
.2 oz. dimethicone
5 drops vitamin E oil
1/2 teaspoon raspberry red mica powder (or lip safe mica color of choice)

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the kokum butter, candelilla wax and castor oil. Heat slowly at 30% power in the microwave in a heat safe container (I recommend using a small glass scientific beaker) or in a double boiler. Once melted, remove from heat.

Now weigh out the walnut oil and lanolin and stir into the melted butter, wax and oil mixture. Stir the ingredients until the lanolin melts. Then weigh out the dimethicone and mix into the moisture lip whip base.

So lips not only feel great, they look smoother and healthier reducing your chance of chapped lips from overuse of long wear lipsticks.

Next, add a few drops of vitamin E oil followed with a half teaspoon measurement of lip safe mica powder. Whisk the moisture lip whip with a fork to fully incorporate the mica powder, then pour into your container(s) of choice. My tinted moisture lip whip recipe works in both jars as well as lip balm tubes.

To use your moisture lip whip, simply apply to lips as desired. For extremely dry or chapped lips, apply a lip scrub beforehand to remove excess dry skin.

Plant based makeup is the new trend. However, you don't have to spend a fortune investing in premiere brand natural cosmetics to get it. Instead, try making your own! Simply start with a few natural ingredients and add micas to create your own custom colored makeup sticks!

Peppermint Lip Balm Recipe with Lanolin

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

.75 oz. sweet almond oil
.6 oz. beeswax pastilles
.25 oz. cocoa butter
.25 oz. refined shea butter
.25 oz. pharmaceutical grade lanolin
5 mL peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the cocoa butter, shea butter, beeswax and sweet almond oil. Combine in a small scientific glass beaker.

Heat the ingredients either a double boiler or a microwave at 30% power until melted. Once melted, carefully remove the beaker from heat. (Your beaker will be hot!)

Now weigh out and stir in the lanolin. Continue stirring until the lanolin has fully melted.

Then, using a graduated transfer pipette, add 5 mL of peppermint essential oil.

Carefully pour the melted peppermint lip balm into ten .15 oz. lip balm tubes. I used the natural polypro lip balm tubes with hook caps from SKS Bottle & Packaging. (They also are available in white.)

Allow your peppermint lip balms to cool and fully harden, then snap on the hook caps. Label if desired for personal use or gifting, then hook them onto your keychain, belt loop or lanyard so your lip balm is always within easy reach!

Mix It Up with a Pop of Color!

You don’t have to make a plain jane peppermint lip balm if it’s color you crave. You can also add a pop of color!

Simply make my peppermint lip balm recipe as called for in the instructions above adding in a bit of lip safe mica as desired before you pour your lip balm into tubes. Alternately, you can also infuse the sweet almond oil with alkanet root powder or beet root powder for a punch of color.

This merlot tinted lip balm recipe creates a super moisturizing tinted lip balm for lips that look and feel fabulous!

Coffee Lip Balm Recipe (with just 3 ingredients!)

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

This easy coffee lip balm recipe uses an infused carrier oil for all of the flavor without the mess of using coffee in the recipe.

Coffee Lip Balm Recipe! If you love coffee then you must try this easy 3-ingredient coffee lip balm recipe! Made using a coffee infused oil for flavor and scent, this easy DIY lip balm saves you money while also offering a quality product. #coffee #lipbalm #diy #crafts #skincare #beauty #lipbalmrecipe #natural #naturalskincare #lipbalmrecipe

I’m combining two of my favorite things in my coffee lip balm recipe: lip balm and coffee. My poor lips get burned in the summer and dry in the winter, so they always need a little bit of extra love.

I have made several kinds of lip balms in the past, but I couldn’t figure out how to get a coffee flavored lip balm without actually adding coffee. I learned about infusing herbs and oils, so I decided to try it with coffee.

By infusing the oil with coffee grounds, I’m able to get the scent, flavor, and benefits of the coffee in this coffee lip balm recipe without creating a mess or using an unnatural flavor.

How to Infuse Coffee + Oil

If you’re new to infusing oils, it’s a great way to get the benefits of an herb, or in this case coffee, without using the herb (coffee) in the final product. If you’re making soap or a bath tea or something similar, you may not mind using the herb.

However, if you’re making a lotion, lip balm, or something where the herb (coffee) can clog drain pipes, then you can infuse an oil. This gives the oil the properties of what you infused it with without making a mess in the final product.

When you infuse coffee and oil, it gives the oil a rich, darker color and also makes the oil smell like coffee, which is what I wanted for this coffee lip balm recipe.

To infuse an oil with an herb or coffee, simply place the herb or coffee grounds in a mason jar and cover with the oil. I used the same fresh coffee grounds that I use to brew my morning coffee.

How much of each do you need? This is not an exact recipe. You want the oil to completely cover what you’re infusing it with. So if I want to infuse 4 ounces of oil, I’ll fill an 8-ounce jar just under half way and cover it with oil. When I’m done, I’ll have about 4 ounces.

After you’ve covered the coffee grounds with the oil, let it sit for two weeks. I pick up the jar and swirl around the oil every day so it mixes together well. After two weeks, use cheesecloth to strain out the coffee grounds and discard them.

You can also use your slow cooker to infuse oils in less time. The great part about using a slow cooker is that you can infuse several different combinations of herbs and oils at the same time. If you want to use coconut oil in a different recipe, this is how you would infuse it.

Place a towel on the bottom of your slow cooker and place your jars on top of the towel. Carefully add water until it covers the herbs or coffee grounds and oil in the jar, but be careful that no water gets in the jar. Leave the jars uncovered. Also leave the lid off of the slow cooker because it can collect condensation that can drop down into the jars.

Turn the slow cooker on low and cook for 4-6 hours. Strain the herbs or coffee grounds out of the oil with cheesecloth and discard them.

For this coffee lip balm recipe, I used a combination of oils. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different carrier oils and other herbs. If you have oils leftover, label them in jars and use them in future recipes. This coffee infused oil would be a great oil to use in my caramel coffee sugar scrub recipe.

Coffee Lip Balm Recipe

This is a fairly simple recipe in a 1:1:1 ratio of ingredients. I really like that because it’s easy to remember and easy to make a large batch. I’ve found that this ratio is wonderful for both lip balm pots and tubes because it’s not to firm for a pot and not too soft for a tube.

For the oil, I used a blend of avocado oil and sunflower oil. I really like avocado oil for the lips because it’s very moisturizing for dry, chapped lips. Sunflower oil is a lighter oil, which balances out the heavier avocado oil. Sunflower oil is also said to be anti-inflammatory, so it can help with sunburned or chapped lips.

You can use your favorite liquid carrier oil to infuse the oil. I like sweet almond oil, fractionated coconut oil, and grapeseed oil in lip balms.

I like shea butter in my lip balms because it nourishes the lips, yet it doesn’t leave your lips greasy. You can also use cocoa butter, but you may need to add a little extra oil or reduce the beeswax.

Ingredients:

1 ounce coffee infused oil (I used a blend of avocado oil and sunflower oil)
1 ounce shea butter
1 ounce beeswax

Instructions:

Weigh the ingredients using a scale. This recipe will not work if you use liquid ounces. Combine the infused oil, shea butter, and beeswax in a double boiler.

Heat over medium low heat until melted. The beeswax will seem like it’s not melting, but it will. Keep stirring to prevent clumps so it melts quicker.

Pour into lip balm pots or tubes. This coffee lip balm recipe makes about 3 ounces of product, so it should fill about 20 lip balm tubes. If you use lip balm pots, it will depend on the size of your containers.

While this recipe is great on its own, you can also modify it to make different flavored coffee drink inspired recipes by adding different essential oils.
