A tinted lip balm is moisturizing and delivers a slight tint to the lips. Perfect for those of us who desire a look that's natural, but still flirty. Now check your makeup bag. See that one lipstick you never use, that's at the bottom on the bag? That one that's just the wrong color? That's what you're going to use. Pick any lipstick you have--I am using one that melted a little in my car. It's a very bright red, not a shade I normally wear. The shade that just didn't work will transform into something you'll love once you melt it. Now you'll need a lip balm. I chose cherry.
My choice for color and scent was influenced by the latest fragrances from Glade. I have the new Blooming Peony & Cherry™. I seriously have these all over my house. They smell so good! Think the scent of delicate peony and fresh pink roses meets the romance of cherry to flirt with your senses in the best way. I've been LOVING the wax melts and jar candles from Glade.
Now back to the tutorial! In a microwavable bowl, melt a little of your lipstick and then empty 1 tube of cherry lip balm in the microwave, as pictured above. While it's all melting, be sure to twist your lip balm tube back down to the bottom so you can add the mixture back in. Once melted, stir and pour back into the empty lip balm tube. I use a small funnel to help. Allow to cool. I pop mine into the freezer while I clean up. And that's it!
And that's it! Just add your favorite flowers, cherry tinted lip balm, and Blooming Peony & Cherry™ candle and you're ready for romance. Or maybe just for feeling flirty. ;)
