Step 2: Pick Your Colors!
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!
