DIY: Crayon Lipstick

DIY Crayon Lipstick

These cute crayon lipsticks take less than 10 minutes to make, can be sheer or opaque depending on your preference, and smell delicious!  With just a couple simple ingredients and kitchen items, they are simple, inexpensive, and a lot of fun to create.  They are also completely safe as crayons are non-toxic.  Let’s get started!

You’ll Need:

Crayon1

Crayons (I chose Carnation Pink, Violet Red, and Violet, but have fun trying other colours too!)

Coconut Oil

A Small pot

A Small glass dish

1 Cup of Water

A small container with a lid (I purchased mine from the dollar store)

Step #1

Crayon2

Place 1 cup of water in a small pot.  Place the small glass dish inside the pot to create a double-boiler.  This is necessary as the crayons will not melt properly in direct heat.  Turn the stove on low-medium, and add your desired amount of coconut oil (1/2 tsp for a sheer finish, slightly less for opaque).

Step #2:

While the coconut oil is melting, cut a 1-inch piece of crayon and remove the paper.

Step #3:

Once the coconut oil has fully melted, place the piece of crayon in the glass bowl.  You can use a toothpick or small spoon to stir as it melts.

Step #4:

Once fully melted, carefully (it’s hot!) remove the glass jar and quickly pour the liquid into your small container.  Cool with the lid off, approximately 30 minutes.

Step #5:

Colours

Repeat and experiment with new colours! A certain crayon too dark for you? Try adding a small piece of white crayon to lighten (or black crayon to darken).
