Ever wondered how lipstick was made?? Here’s how I made some gorgeous red lipstick.
I used quite a bit of castor oil (great for shine), beeswax, a natural liquid lanolin substitute, cetyl alcohol, vegetable oil, carnauba wax, vitamin E and preservative. These ingredients are all in the main container and here we are pouring the lovely red pigments into it.
Homogenising with the Silverson
Pouring the mixture into the metal lipstick mould.
Steady hand needed for this!
Allowing to cool for 15 minutes
Unscrewing the mould
Afterwards I flamed it in the bunsen burner on low heat to give a nice glossy finish.
I’m really loving this colour.
