Hey guys, did you know that you can make your own lipstick using crayons? That’s right I have been doing this for a few months now and they work great. And because they are crayons, you have a whole range of colors to choose from and you can also mix and match crayons of different colors to come up with unique color combinations. Believe me it’s a lot of fun and super easy too.
So here’s what you need:
1.) Crayons (Preferably Crayola)
2.) A Metal Pot and Glass jar
3.) Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline)
4.) Coconut Oil
5.) Vegetable Oil
Procedure to make your lipstick:
Step 1.) Pick a crayon of your choice and peal the wrapper off of it.
Step 2.) Take a metal pot and fill it half a way with water.
Step 3.) Take a glass jar or any other glass container and place it inside the pot.
Step 4.) Now set this metal pot (With the glass jar inside) on a stove and let it boil.
Step 5.) Break your crayon up into two or three small pieces and put it inside the glass jar so it starts melting.
Step 6.) Put around a teaspoon of Coconut oil and Petroleum Jelly, and one tablespoon of vegetable oil in the jar along with the crayon pieces.
Step 7.) Mix these ingredients up using a spoon as they start melting.
Step 8.) Pour it into a container and let the mixture cool down.
Once the mixture cools down you will get a lipstick like consistency. You can then use your fingers to apply it to your lips and they work fine. At-least that’s what I did. But you can also use a lipstick holder like container if you so wish to.
Here’s the video where I got this idea from:
As you must know, most branded lipsticks contain lead additives which can be toxic in nature. Plus they can cost a bit too. With this method, you get a toxic free lipstick that is fun to make at home and is a lot cheaper. So have fun!
