Just because it’s a homemade cosmetic doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t sparkle! When making up a lip balm recipe I try all sorts of oils and wax combinations and test them for different properties like moisturizing quality, feel, and consistency. But this recipe turned out so shiny on my lips that it makes the perfect gloss!
The citrusy scent seemed to be the perfect complement to the sparkly shine. It reminds me of summer and sunshine. To wear, first apply a lip balm or lip colour, and use this gloss as the shimmering top coat. It’s pretty and so good for you.
DIY Tropical Citrus Lip Gloss
• Double boiler
• Small spatula or metal spoon
