Craft night with friends! Learn how to make the same tinted lip balm recipes that we created for our craft night!

These tinted lip balms were a collaborative during a craft night with two of my very wonderful friends, Bambi (left) and Cathy (right.) Each are also talented in their own right. Bambi creates really cool beaded jewelry for her Etsy shop, Happy Tree Frog Studios, while Cathy cuts and colors fabulous looking hair and does some amazingly marvelous makeup. I’m hoping to have Cathy join me at some point this year making a video tutorial for using cosmetic recipes I create. Fingers crossed for that.

Frosty Toasted Marshmallow Tinted Lip Balm Recipe

Ingredients:

.3 oz white cosmetic beeswax
.3 oz. dark cocoa butter wafers
.25 oz. refined coconut oil
.15 oz. sweet almond oil
3 mL chocolate mint flavor oil
1 Tablespoon bronze brown mica (or similar)
1 Tablespoon Diamond Dust mica (or similar)

Instructions:

To make these tinted lip balm recipes you’ll need a digital scale to weigh out ingredients as well as your choice of lip balm pots, tubes or tins along with a graduated plastic transfer pipette to measure out the essential oil and flavor oils. You’ll also need measuring spoons for the mica.

For each lip balm recipe, separately weigh out the beeswax and butters and combine in a double boiler. Heat until melted. Then weigh out the carrier oils and stir into the melted beeswax and butter blend. Remove from heat. (I suggest making these one at a time and not trying to do them all at once. You might drive yourself crazy otherwise.)

Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, measure out the essential oil or flavor oil you are using  and stir into the melted wax, butter and oils.

Then, using measuring spoons, measure out the micas and whisk into the melted lip balm base.

Allow the melted lip balm to cool slightly, then mix again.

Pour your tinted lip balms into your containers of choice, one at a time, remixing the base after each pour, then set aside to cool.

Once your lip balms have fully set up you can seal the containers.

If you’re creating these tinted lip balm recipes to sell you’ll need to be sure to label your lip balms so that they meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Tinted Lip Plumping Lip Balm Recipe

Ingredients:

.7 oz. sweet almond oil
.3 oz. castor oil
.2 oz. refined shea butter
.6 oz. white cosmetic beeswax
.1 oz. lanolin
1.5 mL clove bud essential oil
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Copper Penny Mica Powder (or lip safe bronze mica)

 Instructions:

To make this tinted lip plumping lip balm recipe you’ll need a digital scale to weigh out ingredients as well as your choice of lip balm pots, tubes or tins along with a graduated plastic transfer pipette to measure out the essential oil and measuring spoons for the mica. For this project I used 1/4 oz. clear glass thick wall jars with lined black dome lids from Container & Packaging Supply.

Weigh out the beeswax and shea butter into a double boiler. Heat until melted. Then weigh out the lanolin and stir into the melted wax and butter until melted. Do the same with the sweet almond and castor oil, then remove from heat.

Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, measure out the clove bud essential oil and stir into the melted wax, butter and oils.

Then, using measuring spoons, measure out the mica and whisk into the melted lip balm base.

Allow the melted lip balm to cool slightly, then mix again.

Pour the liquid plumping lip balm into your lip balm containers one at a time, remixing the base after each pour, then set aside to cool.

Once your lip balms have fully set up, screw on the caps and label as desired.

Like this recipe but don’t want to use clove bud essential oil? You can substitute the clove bud essential oil with another essential oil of your choice. Alternately you can add 3 mL of flavor oil.

If you don’t want to use lanolin, there’s not really a like substitute that will perform or feel exactly the same. However, you can substitute the lanolin with either shea butter or coconut oil or a heavy oil like avocado, olive or shea nut oil without having to change the amounts needed for my lip plumping lip balm recipe.

If you’re creating this tinted lip plumping lip balm recipe to sell you’ll need to be sure to label your lip balms so that they meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Cream Eyeshadow Recipe

Ingredients:

Matte oxide or ultramarine pigment powder in eye safe color of choice
Super Sparkles Mica or other eye safe mica in color of choice
Dimethicone

Instructions:

As you’re likely working with small amounts of pigments and mica that are more difficult to be weighed, I created this cream eyeshadow recipe so you can use any amount of pigment desired based on how many eyeshadows you want to create.

Begin by combining two parts of your matte oxide or ultramarine pigment powder with one part of the mica in a complementary color. Mix well until the mica and pigment powder are evenly distributed throughout.

If you want a completely matte cream eyeshadow simply omit the mica. For my shimmery purple cream eyeshadow pictured here, I specifically used Matte Violet Ultramarine Powder.

Now add a small amount of dimethicone and mix and mash the dimethicone into the pigment and mica. Continue until all of the pigment and mica stick together. You may want to wear gloves and mash with your fingers. This is a messy project no matter how you mix it. If you add too much dimethicone, add more pigment and mica.

Test a bit of the cream eyeshadow mixture on your hand to ensure you’ve reached a consistency that works.

Now use a knife to fill your eyeshadow pan. I used a 3 ml silver plastic jar with a hinged lid and clear window from SKS Bottle and Packaging. Clean up your work area using Dawn or oil.

I let my cream eyeshadow sit overnight before using. To use apply a small amount to lids with your finger and smooth and blend with an eyeshadow brush. Or simply apply with an eyeshadow brush using a bit of pressure to pick up the cream eyeshadow with the brush.

To remove your cream eyeshadow, use oil or a cream eye makeup remove or cleanser. I recommend my easy argan and rosemary facial cleansing oil. That recipe can be found here.

Now that you’ve made your first cream eyeshadow recipe you can try other colors and mica blends or even re-make your existing eyeshadows into cream eyeshadows.

For a similar cream eyeshadow that you can buy rather than DIY, I recommend Hikari’s Cream Pigment Eyeshadows who I recently discovered through ipsy’s monthly glam bag. (I love the color Mink which is not nearly as dark as it appears in the product photographs.)

Merlot Tinted Lip Balm Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.7 oz. grape seed oil
.3 oz. castor oil
.2 oz. shea butter
.6 oz. beeswax
.1 oz. lanolin
1.5mL peppermint essential oil, optional
2 teaspoons red orange oil locking mica shimmer
1 teaspoon Diamond Dust (or similar) mica
1/2 teaspoon matte black oxide pigment powder

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the beeswax into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave at 50% power until the wax has melted completely. (Alternately you can use a double boiler.)

Now weigh out the shea butter and lanolin and stir into the melted beeswax. If needed, heat the ingredients again to melt fully.

Next weigh out the grape seed oil and castor oil. Stir into the melted beeswax, lanolin and shea butter mixture.

If a scent is desired, use a graduated transfer pipette to add 1/5 mL of peppermint essential oil. Stir into the tinted lip balm mixture.

Finally you’ll add the colorants.

Use measuring spoons to measure out the colorants. Whisk into the melted lip balm ingredients until thoroughly combined.

Now pour into your containers. For this merlot tinted lip balm recipe I used .3 oz. eco-friendly brown paperboard push up lip balm tubes from SKS Bottle & Packaging. This recipe will fill seven of these tubes.

Allow the lip balms to cool and solidify completely, then cap and label. (You can easily halve this tinted lip balm recipe to yield 3 1/2 lip balms. The fourth of which can be poured into a metal tin or a smaller regular sized lip balm container.)

You can download the merlot tinted lip balm labels here. Then simply print onto a brown kraft full size label, then cut out the labels just inside the black lines and adhere to the lip balm tubes. You can find kraft labels in bulk at reasonable prices at WorldLabelThis merlot tinted lip balm recipe creates a super moisturizing tinted lip balm for lips that look and feel fabulous! Create your own in custom colors for your own personal style or give my own fun and flattering tinted lip balm recipe a try as is for a beautiful look perfect for parties or everyday wear.

Prefer a different color for your tinted lip balms? Experiment with your own favorite pigments and micas or even try using more or less pigment for a sheer tint to a full blow lipstick! The red orange oil locking mica shimmer also looks great solo. My alternate recipe for my 2-in-1 lip stain and cream blush uses this same red orange oil locking shimmer mica for another fresh, fun look! For extra chapped lips, also try my winter healing body balm recipe that’s lovely for both lips and skin exposed to winter’s harsh elements.

Now, using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out 5 mL of strawberry flavor oil and stir into the lip balm mixture.
