DIY experiment – Lipstick and coconut oil… Success or FAIL?

We did one more “life hack” to see if they succeed or fail before I totally wore out. 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.

This time, we tried using Lipstick with coconut oil to see if we could create some brighter lip-gloss. So here we go! We grabbed some lipstick from the Dollar Tree, a candle, Coconut oil, Measuring spoons, and a small bowl.

Ingredients for Lipstick & coconut oil lip-gloss

Just an upfront warning, this project requires an adult!! We measured out 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and melted it slightly in the microwave for about 7 seconds.

Onto the fun part! We snipped off the top quarter of the lipstick and slowly melted it over the lit candle…

Mixing it together was easy and fun! We didn’t grab a photo of that though somehow. It FAILED completely though. The two would not mix.. So no further pics guys. It was fun but messy!
