More DIY coming soon…

Will be here soon thanks to Allume-Beauty from HERE on etsy.  I can’t wait for the beautiful package coming to us!

It’s a set full of goodies to try. Many eye-shadow samples, a custom pressing kit, some foundation samples and it looks like toothpaste! All home-made stuff. I’m not all sure what is in there, but I cannot wait to try it all and share it with everyone! Hopefully by Wednesday or Thursday we shall begin our route in trying things on and reviewing for you. I’m not certain I can squish it all into one post! See you then!

We will be sampling all the products and pressing products as well. Plenty of DIY & reviews soon!!! I can’t wait to report my findings… Don’t forget to check us on to see our newest DIY and beauty!

Koolaid lipgloss… Is it possible??

The last “life hack” of the day to see if they succeed or fail after I was totally worn 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.

The recipe is simple, here is what you need!

Coconut oil, measuring spoons, koolaid packets and a small bowl.

Koolaid process

We pre-melted one tablespoon coconut oil, then mixed a tube of grape store brand koolaid with about 1/4 teaspoon water and 2 packets of splenda, in  separate bowls.

We combined the two until we had a smooth, purple, yummy tasting mixture. It was enough for several containers.

Into the container it went and then into the fridge to cool the coconut oil to cool and harden back up!

And the final project!

I will get pics of her wearing this one later, I’m pretty tired of this process, hehe!

It was a SUCCESS!!

It’s very shiny, but the purple isn’t so bright. Maybe we didn’t use enough koolaid.
