Here's how to make completely safe & non toxic lipsticks by using crayons. Yes! Crayons!(;

Step 1: The Things You Will Need:

In this case I'll be mixing these three colors for a peachy orange color (; Break your crayons & put them in your spoon (**For One Whole lipstick tube you only need HALF of a crayon**)

Step 3: Add in Wet Ingredients

Now you'll add 1/2 tsp Oil & just a dab of Vaseline to your Spoon

Step 4: Heat It Up

Put your spoon above the heat, this will take around 2 minuets to completely melt, it may take longer if your crayon pieces are bigger Stir continuously while it melts for a better mixture (:

Step 5: Almost Done (;

Now put it in any container like, an old Chapstick or lipstick tube. I just used an old contact case for mine :p

Step 6: Let It Stand

Leave your freshly made lipstick out on a flat surface to solid for about half an hour just to be super sure it's solid & you're Done! There are various color combos you can try here are two of my favorites <3 Have Fun!

Great project! I am going to tweak it a bit since I do not like petroleum products on my lips. I love the colour choices you made. It would have been nice to know which crayons you used.

JulieV1 (author)2015-05-09

i just made this and i am pretty sure i made it correctly i used coconut oil and the crayon but when i put it in the container i let it harden but now when i try to put it on it is really hard and nothing shows on my finger. i put it in the microwave to make it more liquid and it kinda worked but is there something else i could do to fix it ?

xXxNikixXx (author)2013-08-18

Is It okay if you use old Vaseline?

goatqueen1 (author)xXxNikixXx2015-05-01


mhatcher1 (author)2013-07-30

Now I've tried it a 2nd time I added a little bit of lemon juice to a peachy pink and vanilla to dark purple. I showed my friend and now I have a lipstick waiting list!

I want to try this. Just to be clear what kind of vanilla did you use??


cocabop (author)2014-06-26

TieDIY (author)2014-06-11

I thought it was lip balm in the shape of a crayon... Ah well, This is cool anyway. Could you try that somehow????? :D

CorrineWhite85 (author)2013-08-26

I just made this and its definitely not a lipstick but feels like a great chapstick!

lizaliciousz (author)2013-08-17

I like to try it ;)
does it work in white color? because we are having a stage play and we need to use white lipstick?

Ilovepups101 (author)2013-08-08

Wow I love this so much<3

Nadflick (author)2013-08-06

I just made a batch and it's awesome! A great gift too! One thing is that when your melting it over a candle, sometimes it burns your hands, but I don't really care!

eflorisa (author)2013-07-30

i tried making this twice and it hasn't worked can someone help me.

The first time was my fault because i used petrolium jelly vaselin but the second time i used cocoa butter could that be the problem? or not enough oil?

diana7950 (author)2013-07-27

I did it i had so much fun doing it . It's awesome.

Arrioche (author)2013-07-25

I'm hoping it goes better next time.

Arrioche (author)2013-07-25

I tried this but I'd read it as half a TABLEspoon of cooking oil. That didn't work so well.

jaffabunny (author)2013-07-24

could I use a bit of chapstick instead of vaseline/shea butter?

realife11 (author)2013-07-24

Would be a good idea to stay away from any crayons 'made in China'. Stick to the name brand stuff. I remember a news report within the last ten years that reported there being lead and other contaminants in crayons coming from China. Just saying, you won't know what's actually in something if it's not tested or if it's imported, since laws for such things are different in each country.

Its really nice to be able to use the crayons for making the lipsticks of your choice. But is is really safe?

Crayola is super-safe. Crayola's been around for years and are well known as non-toxic. These are the crayons that kids end of snacking on, so I'm sure it's super safe.
