Hand-made sparkly strawberry lip balm
Thank you so much! I will certainly try these!!! Wonderful idea!
You my friend are amazing! These are delightful...hugs to you today.
isn't that darling? perfect for gift giving, although i'm not sure where to find edible glitter...maybe a cake decorating shop?xomolly
Cake decorating shops usually sell a variety of edible glitter.
No way! Such an awesome gift. I had no clue it could be so easy. Such a thorough post- thanks for posting the how to steps!
Hi Torie!What a cute idea.I love the lip balm, Im copying that down.Thanks for sharing!
You amaze me every day. I was not expecting this.
Wow, this was brilliant. A wonderful idea, and perfectly executed. Maureen
Oh my goodness...this is impressive and way more than I would ever do! They are darling and I'm sure they smell wonderful!
So nice! I love your blog, congratulations!
I would never have thought to make these myself. Well done you! I am definitely going to give it a go myself now! Thanks for the tutorial!
Thanks for this I have taken note of the instructions and will have a go at this myself when I have time - it's a fabulous idea.
I can't beleive how much you have done these last few months and everything looks lovely and very inspiring. Seasons Greetings :)
Beautiful! they would make perfect gifts!:D
Just curious about the deer mould, where can i find something like that. I am looking for a butterfly & can not seem to find one small enough..
Nabby on Etsy has a large variety of great mini mouldshttp://www.etsy.com/shop/Nabby?ref=seller_info
umm.. what is lipstick shaving?
Small slithers of lipstick.
WOW, so awesome cannot wait to try these. I have one question...what kind of lipstick do you use? Thank you!!!
I used a mini sample from Clinique that I had not used before.
Where did you buy the pots and how many ml or grams are they? Thanks
Have the same question. For now, experimenting, I got a pack of the mini condiment cups they send with to-go meals($2.00 at WalMart). Not classy, but functional for now.
Hi, I bought my pots from http://www.containerstore.com/welcome.htm whilst on holiday in Chicago. Muji sell something similiar.
Love the idea for a friend but was wondering if you could use food coloring instead of lipstick shavings? She is allergic to SPF and most lipsticks contain it, I'm trying to find a recipe to make colored balm without lipstick thank you.
Hi Colleen, I used food colouring in my mint version that can be seen here:http://toriejayne.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/hand-made-cool-mint-lip-balm.html
Can you use a different oil other than sunflower oil like grapeseed or coconut?
I am sorry, I am not sure.
Yes, I do believe you can. Coconut oil is a great one to use. Also, you can use olive oil as well as Vitamin E oil which acts as both a preservative and a moisturizer. I have seen grapeseed oil used before I think.
Actually u can also use pure almond oil
Such a great tutorial. Very sweet color strawberry lip balm. :)
Love this :)
Hey hi nice recipe.. but plz can u tell me do we get these labels in market? and on total how much does it cost us to make these lippies?
Hi! Do you know if there is something that you could substitute for the lipstick shavings? Just curious! Thanks!
I have seen recipes that call for kool-aid powder or crystal light powder for coloring. But fyi, a little powder goes a long way and it may stain your lips, but I am not sure as I have yet to try it. Hope that helps!
where can I get beeswax pellets?
Hi , If you click the blue link "beeswax pellets" it will take you to the store where I bought mine from.
Gorgeous lippies! I can't wait to give this a try :)
Nice to see, sweet in taste!
Thank you x
Just two questions:1) What is the shelf-life of this product?2) Is Strawberry Flavor Oil the same thing as Essential Oil?Thanks Katrina
Hi Katrina, Should last at least 6 months , strawberry flavour oil is an edible oil, please ensure you use an edible oil.
I haven't ever seen tiny molds for making the deer. Where are these found?
Hi Suzie, If you click the blue link "mini deer mould" it will take you to the Etsy store where I got the mini moulds from.
Hi! Quick question when do you add the edible glitter? I bought some but didn't know when to add it.
hi Angie, you should add the glitter when you have the desired colour x
Hi there! I absolutely love this idea but how many do they make?! need to know how many pots to buy asap!!x
Thank you for your sweet comments. I love reading them all.
