DIY Crayon Lipsticks

Okay so I came across this a couple of years ago and according to my stats you guys love a DIY (Rainbow Highlighter DIY).

Also I have to mention what Crayola said about using their products on your face, just in case you try this DIY and have some kind of bad reaction to it, I don’t want to be held responsible. I’m not endorsing using crayons on your face, I’m just saying this is what I’ve done and there are many videos of crayon lipsticks on YouTube.

  • Okay so first I heated some coconut oil (I recommend 1 and a 1/2 teaspoons per whole crayon) in a little glass dish over some warm water on a low heat.
  • Once that was melted I broke up the crayon into small pieces and dropped it in.
  • I continued to stir it with a skewer until it was melted and fully mixed in.
  • I then poured in into a little tin, wrote on the lid which crayon I had used and then left to set in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

These are the colour combinations I chose, I’m a bit of a fan of an unusual lip colour!

And this is what they looked like in the tins, oh by the way I added a tiny tiny bit of black crayon to ‘green’ because I didn’t think it was dark enough.

And this is what it looks like on the lips (follows the same order as above), please excuse the fact that I don’t have great lips!

It came out a bit more sheer than I  was expecting and it seemed to cling to the dry patches, if you want a more opaque, matte, less patchy finish, try blotting it and then reapplying. Or for a sheer finish add more coconut oil to make it more into a lip balm.

Another option would be to add edible glitter if that floats your boat.

But yeah I thought this was quite fun and will come in really handy for fancy dress/Halloween! Let me know if you give it a try. 🙂
