D.I.Y. - Custom Lip Cream

♫ 林俊杰 - 生生

Remember my DIY lip gloss post? Well, this time around, I decided to go with something a little less glossy and a bit more creamy. I managed to get a bunch of these adorable little containers from a store clearance, so it was a good chance to use them for this little experiment.

First, you'll need to prepare some items:
  • Small container / contact lens case
  • Small plastic spoon/spatula
  • Toothpick
  • Vaseline
  • Lip pigments - you'll need at least 2 to create a custom colour
  • Lip brush - to try out your creation on the spot! ;)
  1. Start by scooping a good amount of Vaseline into the container (mine is approximately 1 teaspoon).
  2. Add lip pigments as desired. 
  3. Mix it all up thoroughly using the toothpick.
  4. Add more pigments until you're satisfied with the colour, and mix again. 
  5. Clean up the sides of the container.
  6. Done! :)

I've hardly touched the OCC Lip Tars that have been sitting in my makeup shelf, so it's a good way to use them and create my own lip cream shades. To get the colour below, I added 3-4 drops of Femme (light peach), 2 drops of Anime (hot pink), and 3-4 drops of Grandma (bright coral).

The result is a creamy, pigmented lip cream that is glossy and non-drying. It also leaves a nice stain after the shine has worn off or if you blot with a tissue. Imagine all the possibilities with your OCC Lip Tars, 3CE Lip Pigments, Sleek Paint Pouts, etc! (≧∇≦)

The only downside is that you'll have to apply it with a lip brush. (⌒_⌒;) Also, the OCC Lip Tars have a very minty scent that I personally dislike (but others may love).

Do you own any lip pigments? If you do, give this fun little DIY a try, and who knows, maybe you'll whip up your personal signature lip colour! (◕‿◕✿)
