We are super busy checking out “life hacks” to see if they succeed or fail. Today we are checking several Lip-gloss recipes… Before you pick one of the recipes, you need to pick a container. Here is what we chose… Tiny heart containers we found here on Amazon. They hold 5 grams (about 1/2 a teaspoon). I am making in small batches, but I have found it will still fill several containers.
Mio & Coconut Oil Lipgloss Experiment
First, we gather our ingredients: A bottle of blue colored Mio (in Wicked Blue Citrus – to color it blue), hard Coconut Oil, measuring spoons and a bowl to mix it all in.
We measured out one tablespoon of Coconut Oil and please into your mixing bowl. We used glass so we can heat it in the microwave. We heated it in the microwave for about 5-10 second. Just enough for it to melt a bit.
With the Mio, we poured about 1/2 tablespoon on the melted coconut oil.
We tried mixing it, but it just ended up separated, like oil and water. We tossed the mixture before capturing the end result.
So, unfortunately, this was a FAIL!
