OUT OF CRAYONS
Hello beautiful people. I have spent the whole week doubting myself on this D.I.Y post, until I actually did it and the results were amazing. I never knew that you could make your own lipstick until I tried it, it’s easy, it’s simple and it’s so much fun. It is said that the self-made lipstick out of crayons is actually safer than real lipstick because, the homemade or self made one is toxic free while the real lipstick contains a lot of harmful toxics. Some of you may decide “Lip gloss it is” but don’t give up on lipstick yet because you can actually make your own lipstick now. How great is that? You get to spend less and be healthy.
I am a big fan of lipstick, especially red lipstick but thanks to this tutorial I am now loving pink too, I used to think that pink makes my lips look fuller, because I am not a fan of full lips, but today somehow it just looked perfect, better than my usual red lipstick I think. This D.I.Y is just too fabulous that I am not going to write much, let’s begin already. But before we do, one last thing, I did my eyebrows on my own, and it’s my second third time trying it out and there is improvement. Thumbs up for me, I did it again, almost. 😀
WHAT YOU NEED:
– Cooking bowl or pan
– Lipstick containers/palettes
This is a very cheap D.I.Y but at the same time beautiful, I bought the crayons at Tusky’s Supermarket for 75ksh, the Vaseline at 60ksh and I actually bought the aluminium bowl at 60ksh, because I am sure they won’t let me use what’s in the kitchen. My sister would be like “The F are you doing? Put it back.” Lol. So that is about 205Ksh that I used. But you can use less if you don’t need to buy a bowl.
NOTE: I used some of my old lipstick containers that I didn’t like or were already done. So before you start, scoop out all the lipstick in the old containers that you don’t like or use anymore. Wash it and let it dry properly.
STEP 1: Boil water in the pan, medium is perfect, but you can control the gas from time to time.
STEP 2: Place the small bowl inside the pan with hot water, keep the fire on, and melt the Vaseline or petroleum jelly.
STEP 3: Add in the crayons and let it melt, takes some time but it will melt, if you can’t wait, put it directly on the fire but NOT for long. That’s what I did, I am impatient, I like seeing results now and then. That’s why I can’t keep any work-out schedule or beauty routines.
STEP 4: Pour the liquid inside the lipstick containers and let it cool for about 7-12 minutes.
DO THE SAME FOR THE OTHER COLORS THAT YOU WISH TO HAVE
Wear your new lipstick shades and let everyone know you did it.
Not too bright, just a beautiful shade of red, and I call it “Cherry bum bum”
I feel like nicki minaj with this on my lips. So I am going to call this one “Barbie”
This one did not pop on my lips, I think due to my skin tone but either way, I call it “Eve”.
This is somehow a different D.I.Y and I have never done this before but I want to start. Since you have all already seen the D.I.Y for this tutorial, please visit my youtube channel for a review video, just an idea on what I think of this tutorial, its advantages, disadvantages and what I would recommend. I will be doing so for all DI.Y posts that I will be putting up from now on. I will try to put videos of the D.I.Y itself too.
