A fabulous natural lip gloss making glossy, soothed lips the natural way! You can just make this with a flavoured oil if you wanted. I have seen recipes that use Beetroot juice to colour the lip gloss and I intended to try it…but by the time I got home after shopping, thought “meh” and used a favourite lipstick that was worn down to the nub. To be honest, the colour was not as bright as the lipstick (bright Diva red) but left a nice pinkish sheen. You would need to play around with the colour if you wanted a deeper tint. You need to check the contents of any lipstick you use before you call it “natural lip gloss”. I will know and glare at you across the crowded room in a stare of judgement….. then will admire your glossy lips..!
I should add that I purchase my containers from this from Sephora. There may be other places but this was the nearest to me. It was a long day at work and I did not want to drive very far….
