Take a small mixing bowl, cover it with foil if you don't want it to get dirty. Next scoop out all the Vaseline into the small bowl, then cut the lipstick add to the Vaseline. Then cut open one Vitamin E tablet, let the liquid ooze out.Vitamin E is very moisturizing and good for skin. If you have any oil at home you can add a tea spoon at this point.
Create a double broiler by placing your mixing bowl in a pan full of water. Now on slow heat mix all the all the ingredients together. Remove from heat once the mixture comes to thick molten consistency.
Pour hot liquid into a small box you want to set the Lip tint in. Put the box in the fridge for for 5-10 minutes depending the weather. Once you take it out the product is ready for use.
