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

Step 1: The Things You Will Need:

1. Crayons of your choice 2. 1/2 tsp of any type of oil (olive, almond, jojoba, etc.) 3. Vaseline or Shea butter 4. Stick to stir with 5. Small container 6. Heat source (like a candle or a stove top) 7. Metal spoon to heat ingredients in
Can i make this with like a tube of clear lipgloss intead of vaseline and oil?
<p>can u make this without any type of olive oil?????</p>
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? :(
<p>make just with crayons and coconut oil</p>
<p>Can I do this without shea butter or vaseline?</p>
<p>cool! i am going 2 try that</p>
I made it!
hey I was listening to npr and it said that even Crayola said do not make makeup out of our crayon
<p>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 ?</p>
Is It okay if you use old Vaseline?
I'm sure it's safe! Kids eat crayons all the time! Hahaha but does the color really show up? <br>
<p>lol it actually is true.... haha</p>
<p>can I use virgin coconut oil?</p>
<p>Super creative and unique! Fun! :D</p>
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??
I made it for my comic-con outfit an it turned out amazing!!!
<p>I made it. It was messy/fun!</p>
I thought it was lip balm in the shape of a crayon... Ah well, This is cool anyway. Could you try that somehow????? :D
I just made this and its definitely not a lipstick but feels like a great chapstick!
I like to try it ;) <br>does it work in white color? because we are having a stage play and we need to use white lipstick?
Wow I love this so much<3
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 tried making this twice and it hasn't worked can someone help me. <br> <br>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.
I'm hoping it goes better next time.
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? <br>
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.
that is realy neat,lead free too!
This just might make me want to wear lipstick.
I wanna see different swatches on a model!
Did you get this idea from <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-lipstick-with-crayons/" rel="nofollow">the instructable I published in 2010</a>? It's always a good idea to list your inspiration or sources. An even if you did come up with this on your own (which is entirely possible, when I came up with this idea a few years ago I hadn't seen it anywhere on this site or on the internet) then it's always good to do a search of the site before publishing, to see if there's something similar, and if so, to link to it. That's what I do in all my instructables (see&nbsp;<a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-music-studio-in-an-apartment-building/" rel="nofollow">my studio design tutorial</a>&nbsp;for example), and it's both helpful to reader and polite to acknowledge other's previous work.&nbsp;
Woah. This seems a bit kind of mean. Lots of people do 'ibles that other people have also done. You're not the only person who thought of creating a lipstick.. Geesh. She doesn't need to link your 'ible whatsoever.
question- will it stain ur lips..?
No! Why would it?
Brilliant instructable! Thanks, candyylove!
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.
