DIY Crayon Lipstick

This is a very cool DIY that I got from Pinterest and YouTube! I was skeptical at first, as I am not one to take on crafty projects and find much success. However, I have been using my little pot of crayon lipstick every day since!

Here’s what you need:

–> Coconut Oil

–> Crayola Crayons (This brand is non-toxic)

–> Glass jar (not in pic)

–>Small containers (try the dollar store)

Here are the colours I tried! My absolute favourite is the pink/red one.  The purple I made a little too thick and did not quite turn out the way I anticipated…

Steps:

1.  Heat up a couple inches of water in a pot and place the small jar in the middle

2. Cut up the crayon into peices and take the wrapping off

3. Measure out 1 tsp of coconut oil into the jar and let it melt

4. Add 1 crayon and stir until they are melted

5. Pour into little containers and put in the fridge

6. Voila!!

Notes:

If you use the 1 crayon to 1 tsp of coconut oil ratio, you get a nice sheer gloss.  I found this to be the best combo in all the different ways I tried!

Let me know if you try this and what you think!!

April Lips

I have been looking forward to Spring for many reasons. It’s the time when everyone in Calgary start to come out of hibernation and I get to start obsessing over bright new lipsticks.
Coral! Peach! Pink! Orange! Nude! Fun!
You should know that one of my favourite hobbies is making a delicious cup of coffee and watching make-up tutorials on YouTube. Nicole, Carli, Shannon and PixieWoo are my girls!

For this month I’ve picked two of my current favorites and go-to’s that I’m constantly reaching for.

Lips April
1) Lip Paint in Hibiscus by Top Shop

This colour is more than eye catching, it’s poppin’. One of those colours that you test on your hand, smile, and know the rest of your day can’t be bad. It is a deep pink/red and acts like a stain so it has amazing staying power. Have you tried any Top Shop products you love?!

2) Apocolips in Aurora by Rimmel London

Dark dusty rose? That’s what came to mind first trying to describe the colour. Yeah, I’m hoping I get better at descriptive words also. It is very easy to apply, not sticky and very wearable for people who are a little nervous about lip colours.

Take it for what it’s worth, but I’m loving this for something to put on during a work day. Throw on some mascara, this lipstick and you got it going on!
