From Old Chapstick to New Lipgloss!




I had this old leftover Chapstick that wasn't my favorite. I thought it would be much better in a lip gloss form! This is how I changed my old Chapstick!
I like the lip gloss much better because it leaves a nice shine on your lips. Another smart alternative can be to use lipstick to make your lip gloss tinted. Also, you can change the recipe a little for what you have.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Get the Ingredients!

Here are the ingredients and utensils you need:
-measuring table spoons
- vegetable shortening
- old Chapstick or lipstick
- microwave
- microwave safe bowl
- small container or pot ( mine is a lush sample container)
- a toothpick
- freezer/ refrigerator

Step 2: Add and Measure Ingredients

For my recipe I used 1 and a half tablespoons of vegetable shortening. I used it because it gives your lips a glossy look and it's not harmful for your lips! For this recipe I used half a Chapstick. You can add more or less but I think this works the best. Add all of the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.

Step 3: Microwave It!!

Next, you want to microwave your ingredients. First, start with 25 seconds. Next mix the melted lipgloss with a toothpick intil all of it turns to a liquid.

Step 4: Pour It in the Container!!

Next, grab your container. Pour the lip gloss in. Be careful not to fill your container up too much, because it can spill( that's what happened to me!)

Step 5: Freeze!!

Next stick it in the freezer or refrigerator for 20 minutes or when it's hard. Then you can take it out!!

Step 6: Finished!

Enjoy!! This is a really easy and a fun project!! I like this much better than the Chapstick! Vote for me for the hair and beauty contest!
