Get Stained! Homemade Lip Stain/Balm
May 3, 2012 by Bobbi
My awesome sister-in-law, Erin, is back with another awesome beauty DIY~! Let’s see what she is creating today
I love making my own beauty products. It’s so simple and fun too! One of my favorites is homemade lip balm that doubles as a stain. It takes all of 1 minute to make and it’s so easy, you can do with the kids too. And can you say “frugal”? I love saving money. Okay, let’s get this staining party started!
First, get together your tools You’ll need Vaseline or Un-Petroleum Jelly, Crystal Light- I’ve used Cherry Pomegranate, though any would work as long as it’s not green or blue (we don’t want to look like corpses!) Basically pinks, reds or even purples would be great (Kool-Aid works great as well though it’s a bit more tart), a small container (hello dollar store!), and a mixing tool, I like to use a q-tip.
Now for the super simple creation process. I’m talking 1 minute tops. Let’s go!
Fill the empty small container with your Un-Petroleum Jelly.
Add your Crystal Light, I used about 1/3 of the individual packet.
Now, the really tricky part (ha ha). Mix it all together.
I know you want to slap that delicious looking stuff right on your kisser, but you need to allow this to sit for about an hour so any granules can dissolve. I know, this is the hardest part…being patient!
The color will get much more vibrant, and it will become smoother. Then, you are ready to stain those lips! Yay!
This great tasting lip balm will not only hydrate dry lips, it’ll also stain your lips softly for hours making it a great summer treat!
