DIY Lip Gloss

Do you buy a lipstick in the store only to take it home and realize you hate it?  Do you like to take advantage of Bonus Time at your favorite makeup counter but never use the freebie lipstick they give you in the goody bag?  What do you do with them, give them away?  Well, don’t!!  Try this first….you may end up loving that weird shade of lip color.

1.  Twist the lipstick tube all the way out and cut off the actual lipstick into a microwave-safe bowl.  You can combine colors or just do one tube’s worth.  It’s up to you.
2.  Add the Vaseline to the bowl.  Just eyeball it and try to get about the same volume of Vaseline as you have lipstick.  Adding more Vaseline will make a more subtle gloss, adding less will make a more vibrant gloss.
3.  Place in the microwave and heat in 15-second increments until the mixture can be stirred smooth.
4.  Pour into a small container like an old makeup counter sample jar (a good reason to save those suckers) or a small pill box.  Cool in fridge.

That’s it!

So when life gives you ugly lipstick, make lip gloss!
