Do you love wearing lipstick? Do you like experimenting with different lipstick shades that are available in the market? The lipsticks available in the market are usually laden with chemicals that may harm your health and they are quite expensive too. Instead, try these lipsticks made from crayons and experiment with as many colors as you like. And yes, they cost next to nothing.
Here Are The Tips To Follow For Making Own Lipstick From Crayons:
Things You Need:
Take some old or new crayons. Use non-toxic crayons that are available in the stores as they do not harm your health. A small bowl or a large spoon is needed to melt the crayons. Take some petroleum jelly or coconut oil. Apart from this, you will also need a spoon for stirring and an empty lipstick container.
Prepare The Crayons:
Remove the wrapper from the crayons and break them into small pieces so that they can be melted easily. If you are using old crayons, remove the crayon parts that were not covered with the wrapper as they might be infected or dirty.
Steps To Be Followed:
Take some water in a small vessel and bring it to a simmer on a stove. Take the crayon pieces in the bowl and place it over the vessel. Make sure that the bowl does not touch the water. This is because crayons might catch fire when heated to a high temperature. You can also take the crayon pieces in a large spoon and hold it an inch or so above a burning candle. Once the crayons are melted, mix some petroleum jelly or coconut oil in it. Now pour the mixture into an empty lipstick container and allow it to cool. You can also place the lipstick in the refrigerator for some time in order to speed up the cooling. That’s it you are done. Your own homemade lipstick is now ready.
Experiment With Different Colors:
You may now experiment with as many colors as you like. You can also combine 2 or 3 different colored crayons to get an interesting shade.
In addition to the above ingredients, you may also add a pinch of zinc oxide for protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun. Adding a drop of Vitamin E improves the shelf life of your lipstick and is also good for the skin.
