Introduction: DIY Lipstick - With Materials You Already Have!
This lipstick is very easy to make and only requires 3 ingredients!
It is super pigmented and has the look and feel of real lipstick. I came up with this recipe myself because I didn't have some of the materials (jojoba oil, coconut oil) that other DIY lipstick recipes called for. My inspiration for this lipstick came from a few youtubers and this instructable by besley --> https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-lipstick-wit...
WARNING: I have contacted Crayola, and they said that their crayons do not contain any products that are harmful to the human body, but they strongly discourage making lipstick out of their crayons because the crayons have not been tested for use on skin. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
Crayola Crayons (other crayons should work too)
Olive oil (optional)
Step 2: Put the Whole Chapstick (out of Its Case) and About 3/4 of a Crayon Into a Measuring Cup. You Can Mix Colors of Crayon If Desired.
I used a red crayon for the lipstick, but you could use any color.
Step 3: Melt in Microwave for 2.5 Mintues, or Until Melted. WARNING ~ It Is Much Safer to Heat the Wax in a Double Boiler! Using the Microwave Might Result in Setting Fire to Your Kitchen (if You Overheat the Wax)
Make sure you don't melt it too long or the wax could combust.
Step 4: Add About One Spoonful of Vanilla to the Melted Lipstick.
Step 5: (Optional) Fill the Chapstick Cap With Olive Oil and Put It in the Melted Lipstick. This Makes the Lipstick Smoother.
Step 6: Stir With a Fork. Don't Use a Spoon Because the Wax Would Stick to It to Easily.
I would recommend using a plastic fork so that you can throw it away easily. I forgot, and it was hard to get the wax off of the metal fork.
Step 7: Pour the Lipstick Into the Chapstick Container.
Step 8: Let It Cool.
Step 9: Wax Contracts When It Cools, So You Will Have a Dent in Your Lipstick. Put a Drop of Extra Wax Onto the Top to Fill the Space.
Step 10: Finished Look of the Lipstick!
Step 11: (Optional) Peel Off the Chapstick Label and Glue on the Crayola Label That Was on the Crayon.
Step 12: Vote for Me in the Contests! :)
