Instructables
I have always looked for ways to make lip gloss, but I have never found any recipes that use ingredients found around the house. ( or last more than 3 days!) This is a recipe that Use less than 5 Ingredients, requires no "cooking", and is super quick! :)

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
Ingredients
1. Shortening
2.Icing coloring (or you could use food coloring)
3.Optional:
Koolaid (for color and flavor)
Sparkles
Olive oil (makes the gloss more glossy!)

Tools
Small bowl (or cup)
Fork
Spoon
Small quart size plastic bag
Toothpicks
Cup
Rubber band

Step 3: Color the Shortening

If you are using icing colors (which I recommend for the many colors possible), you will want to use toothpicks. Just poke the toothpicks in the color and swirl the toothpick around the shortening to colorize it. If you are using food color, put a few drops in the shortening and swirl with a toothpick.
You can mix colors to get the exact color you want. Keep in mind that the food color will really show up on your lips alot if you put enough!

Step 4: Add the flavor!

To add flavor, use SUGAR FREE koolaid! if you use sugar, it will make the lip gloss turn in to a disgusting mess within a few weeks! Add a few drops of water to a pinch koolaid and stir (with a toothpick) then add a few drops of the flavor to your lip gloss. Dont over do it! You can also add vanilla as a flavoring!

Step 5: Bag the lip gloss

Put the bag around a cup and spoon your lipgloss into the bag. squeeze it all to a corner of the bag and tie a rubber band around it. Snip the corner. Poof! you have made a quick and easy lip gloss!

Can you use cordial or something else besides Koolaid and Vanilla Escense to flavour it?
