Lip Gloss Recipes

Lip gloss is an incredible cosmetic product that not only gives a nice shine to your lips, but also makes them soft and smooth. You can always purchase ready-made lip gloss from a cosmetic store, but preparing your own lip gloss can be exciting and fun. Moreover, a homemade lip gloss is safe and healthy, since you are aware of the lip gloss ingredients you have used. Making lip gloss at home is quite easy, since all you need to do is melt the ingredients together and allow the mixture to cool.

Microwave, double boiler and hot water are three types of methods used for melting the ingredients of lip gloss. While heating the ingredients, ensure that you heat the mixture only until the ingredients melt, never bring the mixture to boil. It is recommended that you should use the specified method for melting as mentioned in the recipe. Always use clean containers to store your homemade lip gloss. If you are using re-used containers, make sure you have sterilized them properly. So, if you are ready to make your own lip gloss, then here are some lip gloss recipes for you.
