Gift Guide Day 3: A Pretty Pout

GG 2015-3

Bite Beauty has been on my beauty-radar quite often this year.  Their products are made solely of food-grade ingredients (and are gluten-free), and the colour payoff is always impressive.  This Best Bite Rewind set is the perfect way to try out the brand (if you haven’t already), and includes 4 matte-finish mini lip crayons (0.031 oz each).  The kit includes a fun range of colours: nude (Cafe), rose (Torte), raspberry (Coulis), and eggplant (Aubergine).  Orange peel wax protects and seals in moisture, while triple milled pigments provide light but serious colour payoff.  The pointed crayon tips allow you to perform precise, liner-free applications on the go.  This set comes ready to gift in a cute holiday-red tin, or you can divide it up into 4 individual gifts!

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).
