Formula: Cherry Cordial Lip Tint
About This Formula:

This candy-inspired lip balm will help protect your lips from wintery weather. The oils and butters moisturize while beeswax creates a protective barrier. Using iron oxide pigments allows you to create either a "tint" of color or a pigmented lip color.

You Will Need:

  1. In metal pot, add shea butter, apricot kernel oil and beeswax. Heat on low until completely melted.
  2. Stir the mixture until the temperature reads 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove from heat.
  3. In a separate container combine the chocolate and cherry flavor oils before adding to the melted ingredients. Stir well.
  4. In a separate container combine a small amount of red iron oxide with a tiny amount of black oxide to mute the red. The more black you add, the more the red will change in tone so mix until you create a shade you love. Add a small amount of your pigment blend to your liquid mixture. 
  5. Allow to cool to 115F before pouring product into tubes and let cool completely before adding caps.
  6. Label product accordingly.
To Use: Apply a small amount of tint to lips. Reapply as often as desired.

Ingredients: Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Beeswax, Flavor, Iron Oxides.

Helpful Hint: Once you have added pigment to your liquid mixture, use a small tester spatula (or a cotton swab) dipped into the liquid mixture and applied to your skin to determine the lightness or darkness of the tint on your skin tone. Dispose of spatula/swab once it has touched your skin. Darker skin tones may require more pigment than lighter skin tones. The more pigment you add, the more this product will behave like a lipstick than a tint.
