And just like that I made a DIY version of Maybelline Baby Lips.
I love Baby Lips Lip Balm. Especially ‘Cherry Me’ is a great, wearable everyday red lip gloss. Unfortunately, after a couple of days of intense use, I discovered 1 of its ingredients made my eczema flare up. Maybe I should have tested it first before I bought it in every color.
I wasn’t really planning on making a DIY for it. This recipe is actually based on the natural ingredients in the Lip butters from Revlon. Even though the ingredients are different, it has the same feel, glossy finish and color effect as Maybelline Baby Lips. A DIY win!
What you’ll need for 2 lip balms:
- 1 tsp. beeswax
- 1 tsp. Shea butter
- 1 tsp. mango butter (or use more Shea butter)
- 1 tsp. coconut oil
- A bit of lipstick
Melt your beeswax, butters and coconut oil in a double boiler.
If you use lipstick for color, add a piece to the mixture while it’s still hot. You can add it to the double boiler as well if it won’t melt. I used about 1/4 inch.
If you’re using mica or natural dyes, wait for the mixture to somewhat solidify. Add your powder and stir everything well. The powder shouldn’t sink to the bottom, but the mixture should still be ‘pourable’.
Pour it in an empty lip balm container and let it sit in the fridge for an hour or let it sit overnight. Throw 1 in your handbag and apply for instant glam.
Enjoy your softer than butter lips!
