If your long lasting lipsticks are drying out your lips, give them a break already! 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!
Tinted Moisture Lip Whip Recipe
.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)
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.
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.
