My lipgloss is poppin’ my lipgloss is cool! ….
Okay enough of that middle school flash back.
My daughter, almost three years old, LOVES make up. I means loves it. Wants to put on every single color of everything.
But let’s face it, make up is expensive! So while mommy is all supportive in playing dress up, let’s not ruin mommy’s make up!
I also don’t want to buy the cheap make up to let her play in, because make up is so little regulated, their could really be anything in there.
So here I am, with a DIY lipgloss!
This was really easy to make and I think she is really going to love it!
Here’s what you’ll need:
coconut oil (in solid form)
and sugar !
You can find the small containers at most craft stores or online at Amazon.
So start off by scooping your coconut oil into a microwave safe bowl. I made 5 containers of lipgloss and used 4 heaping spoonfuls of coconut oil.
Microwave for 15 seconds, enough to get the coconut oil nice and soft, but not enough to completely melt it.
Stir up your coconut oil and try to get all the lumps out.
In a separate bowl, use half a package of Kool Aid and a tablespoon of sugar. The sugar is simply just to help knock out the tanginess of the koolaid! Add enough water to make a paste. Stir together and get out the clumps.
Next add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and mix together until lumps are out .
Spoon into your container and put in the refrigerator for five minutes to get the coconut oil to sit up.
Repeat with other flavors if you want a variety!
From left to right: Cherry, Orange, Fruit Punch, Fruit Punch/Grape, Grape
Note that not all colors match their “flavor”. The grape ended up looking grey, and goes on as a translucent gloss. Also, none of the colors are as bright as they look in the container.
Here is Cherry, for an example.
Or Emily here who wanted to wear them all!
They are still a little tangy if you lick your lips, but the sugar helps!
Let me know if you try this at home!
