DIY Lip Gloss/Lip Balm

Hello there!

Dry and chapped lips, one of the most annoying things. Unfortunately, I have them a lot... On those days lip balm is my best friend. I tried to make my own lip balm/ lip gloss. Super easy and perfect for you to try at home! Okay, let's go;

There are only three ingredients: coconut oil, Vaseline and an old blush.
I used blush to give my lip balm a nice colour, but you can use an old lipstick instead if you want to, or neither of both if you don't want it coloured.
Use the same amount of Vaseline and coconut oil and melt it in the microwave. Take it out every 30 to 45 seconds to stir it. When it's completely melted, you can add the blush or the lipstick. Mix it again and then you're done! yaay! (Except for the dishes....)
Just put it in a nice container and you can start to use it!

I've used it a few times now and I have to say that for me it's more a lip balm than a lip gloss, because it doesn't stay on for that long. (Not as long as I expect a lip gloss to stay on.) But the first two hours, it's a very nice lip gloss!

Don't expect that your lip gloss will have the exact same colour as the blush or lipstick. Mine turned out a bit different too. It has a beautiful peach/pink colour (as you can see on the picture.)

So that was it, the last post of 2014. This year has gone unbelievably fast...
Anyway, don't forget to send me a picture on twitter if you try to make this at home!

Have a lovely day,
