DIY Monday: Kool-Aid Lip Gloss

I’m one of those kinda girls that ALWAYS has some lip gloss with her! And I just don’t use any old kinda lip gloss either! I like mine to be flavored! So today I introduce to you the most easiest and fun-est do it yourself project ever, kool-aid lip balm. It’s just five ingredients and really simple to make.

Here’s What You Need

10 teaspoons Vaseline or a petroleum free alternative
4 teaspoons coconut oil
2 teaspoons shea butter
1 package unsweetened kool-aid or crystal light
1-2 packets of sweetner
microwave safe bowl or double boiler
spatula (spoon)
Old marinade injector (optional)
Lip gloss containers

Add Vaseline, coconut oil and shea butter in a microwave safe bowl or double boiler (if you have one)

Heat the mixture in the microwave on high in 30 second increments, stirring between each heating.
Keep repeating this step and make sure to stir, stir and stir some more in between each heating
Note that the mixture will be liquid when it is fully melted and VERY HOT!
Make sure you wear gloves or oven mitts and make sure children and clumpsy friends are being SUPERVISED!

Once melted take out of microwave.
Let mixture cool for just a few seconds and stir in the kool-aid a little at a time.
Make sure it starts to dissolve (keep stiring!)
The more kool-aid you add the darker it gets. So this is up to you what you want your lip gloss to look like.

Now if you use Crystal Light the flavor is so much better.

But since Kool-Aid is bitter just simply pour in a couple packets of sweetner to add a little sweetness for your lips.

If you see that the mixture is starting to solidify you can heat again for another 30 seconds – skip this step if it is still liquidy.

Use an old marinade injector or pour mixture into your lip gloss containers and leave to solidify – a couple hours

Let cool before using or giving as gifts.
And for something extra fancy use a custom sticker or even a sharpie to write on the lid.
Have fun, kisses!

* DESIGNER’S NOTE – This project calls for A LOT of stirring until the crystals are fully melted.
Otherwise your lip balm will be gritty.
