DIY Lip gloss!

by - August 25, 2012

Those who know me, know that I am OBSESSED with lip gloss! I got through a tube a week! My cousin Sheila sent me this awesome link from another blog on how to make your own lip gloss. I am definitely going to try to make this hopefully tonight or sometime this weekend! This is from the blog page Meet the Dubiens and the post is called Kool-Aid lip gloss. I have provided you with the recipe below. Please go to the Meet the Dubiens page to read comments if this does not work out for you. Their blog is awesome and the have many DIY crafts, recipes & more! She even has the labels for you to print!

What you'll need:

1 tub petroleum jelly (vaseline)
1 pkg of kool-aid drink crystals - whatever flavour you want, or you can make a few
lip gloss containers
labels printed out on sticker paper
scissors or 1 inch paper punch


1. put about 1 cup vaseline in a microwave safe bowl
2. heat the vaseline in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each heating. It took me about 7-8 minutes to melt each batch of vaseline. It will be liquid when it is fully melted. It will be very hot! Make sure you wear gloves or oven mitts and make sure children are being supervised.
3. take out of microwave and stir in kool-aid drink crystals until desired colour is reached - I used the whole package for each batch. Stir until the crystals are completely dissolved.
4. if starting to solidify you can heat again for another 30 seconds - skip this step if it is still liquidy
5. pour into your lip gloss containers and leave to solidify - a couple hours
6. repeat this whole process if making more flavours
7. print out labels on sticker paper
8. using either a 1 inch punch, or scissors, cut out the circle labels and attach to your lip gloss container
9. give to all your favourite people, but remember to save a few for yourself too!
