Make Your Lipsticks More Portable (DIY)

Leave a comment

I don’t own many lipsticks because I don’t like to wear them but I know lots of people who have tons of them laying around in a drawer, their purse, or car. Lipsticks are already portable but imagine having five or more shades in one easy place without having to fumble through them. I’ll show you how easy it can be!

What you’ll need:

Candle

Small knife 

Metal spoon

Lipsticks or chapsticks

Rubbing alcohol (to sanitize)

Small eyeshadow tins (to place metled product in)

First it’s a good idea to sanitize your metal tin, spoon and knife to cut down on bacteria.

 

Next you’ll need to light your candle.

 

Lay your lipstick down on the counter and cut off the amount you’d like. It’s better to start off by cutting a little because you can always melt more later.

Place the cut piece of lipstick on the spoon.

 

Put the spoon over the candle flame. Sway the spoon back and forth above the flame so the product won’t burn. You only need to slowly melt the lipstick.

Make sure the product is entirely melted and slowly pour it into the metal tin. Melt more if you need to so you have a sufficient amount of product.

Wipe off the spoon carefully with a paper towel. The spoon is VERY hot. I repeat it’s HOT!

 

And you’re done! I did a lipstick and a chapstick.
