Using natural and lip nurturing ingredients, this lipstick glides on smoothly and gives your lips a vivid, red hue. Follow the recipe as is, or experiment with other pigment powders to create your own custom shades.
- Combine the beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, castor oil and arrowroot powder in the top of a double boiler (a heat-safe jar works well also) and heat gently on low heat until melted.
- In a small bowl, stir together the kaolin clay and the red oxide pigment powder.
- Pour melted mixture over the dry ingredients and stir well to combine.
- Once the mixture has cooled slightly but is still pourable, decant into two 1/2 ounce lip balm tubes.
Let mixture completely cool and harden before using. Apply either by rolling on lips, or with a lipstick brush for lighter application.
