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

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!

I made this a couple days ago, and after it hardened I had a hard time getting any of it on. How do I fix this? :(
I just made this and its definitely not a lipstick but feels like a great chapstick!

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!

I'm sure it's safe! Kids eat crayons all the time! Hahaha but does the color really show up?

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?

I did it i had so much fun doing it . It's awesome.
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 tried this but I'd read it as half a TABLEspoon of cooking oil. That didn't work so well.

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

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.

This Is soooo cool! Especially for making crazy colors for Halloween or something like green or purple! I made some purple lipstick but used petroleum jelly and no oil, it's not very bright but very moisturizing.
Thanks I've been look for a good recipe for this!
I tried this for lipstick I needed for a costume I was making (it was Kanaya from Homestuck). I needed very unusual colors (Green and black), so I used my little brothers crayons ;) They turned out really good, except I accidentally spilled about 1/2 of my black. Spoon to container transitions are NOT pretty in my house.

I've been trying to find a bright orange color that matches 1 of my crayons but lipstick is so expensive. I am DEFINITELY giving this a try. Lipstick is my favorite kind of make-up and I love experimenting with crazy colors.
Totally Giving This A Try!

HMMMM...this would be a good idea for little girls. i might talk to my wife about saving her lipstick tubes when she is done with them to make her own cheap lipstick.

I am definitely trying this - I wanted to solicit your opinion(s) on how this clever DIY lipstick compares to the retail stuff? I am guessing this is prob better for our lips as there are not harsh unknown chemicals in it (or am I off there - don't know what crayons are made of?). Second I like a brownish reddish color but not too much of each. Do you have any suggestions on how to choose what crayon colors to use to create the colored lipsticks we like? Should I use the basic color wheel as my guideline?? Sorry if my questions are elementary but I'd love to try this and get it right! Thank you for sharing! Any DIY for lipgloss, that is my fave and must have for lip coloring.
