We all know that chapstick is fantastic for keeping your lips moisturized and protected from the sun. But plain chapstick is just too boring on its own. Today I am sharing a quick and easy way to transform plain chapstick into tinted and flavored lip balm! This tutorial is basically a new version of my coconut oil lip gloss. In that recipe, I used raspberry extract to flavor and scent the gloss. For this batch, I used the candy oil that you can find in the baking section of your grocery store or craft store.
DIY TINTED & FLAVORED LIP BALM
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE FLAVORED LIP BALM
This is a great way to use up the very last bits of an almost empty tube of lipstick. When you are choosing the lipstick that you will use to color your lip balm, remember two things: 1) If the lipstick is shimmery, your lip balm will have a shimmer, and 2) The greater the ratio of chapstick to lipstick you use, the less tint the balm will have. If you want your lip balm to have lots of color, use one part chapstick and one part lipstick.
