Lip Gloss

My oldest Daughter is a Junior Girl Scout. For one of her Badges she had to make her own lip gloss. We used 2 different recipes and they both came out wonderful...

Chocolate Lip Gloss
Ingredients:
Shortening (like Crisco)
Cocoa powder
Flavoring (like vanilla extract)
Clean container to pour the Lip gloss in

we did not do exact measurements as we did not have a recipe but just did a trial and error experiments..

1 Tbs shortening, place in glass bowl, put in microwave and heat for 30 seconds or longer until it begins to melt remove the bowl from the microwave and stir until it is melted into a liquid. Add about 1/2 tbs of cocoa powder (we used hot cocoa mix from the packet) and 2 drops of vanilla extract... mix until ingredients are dissolved and mixed well. Pour into container and let rest for a day on counter or for quick solution place in fridge for a couple of hours until it hardens.. Voila you are ready to glam it up with vanilla smelling homemade cocoa lip gloss... Adjust recipe to make as much or as little as you would like. This will fill 3 containers..

Pink Sugar Lip Gloss
Ingredients:
Vaseline (or off brand petroleum jelly)
Drink mix (like kool aid with sugar in it already, pixie stix)
Flavoring (like mint extract)
Clean container to pour the Lip gloss in

2 Tbsp Vaseline, place in glass bowl, put in microwave and heat for 30 seconds or longer until it begins to melt remove the bowl from the microwave and stir until it is melted into a liquid. Add about 1 tbsp of drink mix (we used pixie stix)mix well, add 2-4 drops of mint extract depending on how strong you want the mint flavor/smell... mix until ingredients are dissolved and mixed well. Pour into container and let rest for a day on counter or for quick solution place in fridge for a couple of hours until it hardens.. Voila you are ready to glam it up ... Adjust recipe to make as much or as little as you would like. This will fill 3 containers..
