Make Your Own Lip Gloss

lemon lip gloss

I know what you’re thinking! Why would you make your own lip gloss? Well why not? It’s fun, it’s easy, it’s cheap, and all natural. There is nothing better than having natural ingredients on your skin…they really do make a difference!

This lip gloss that you will make today, is a lemon lip gloss. Not only is it extremely easy to make, but it is absolutely delicious! Not to mention that your lips will love you for it as this home made lip gloss will nourish the skin on your lips and rejuvenate them.

Here is what you need to gather to make your own lip gloss.


1 tsp honey

1 tbsp vitamin E oil

1 tsp aloe vera

2 tsp grated beeswax

1 tbsp pure almond extract

6 drops of lemon essential oil


Once you’ve gathered all the essentials, you can start cooking! Melt the beeswax in a pot or pan, and remove from heat when it’s melted. Don’t forget to stir constantly-it’s very important as the wax can harden up in a matter of seconds if it’s not stirred.

While you are stirring, add the honey, the aloe vera, the almond extract, and the vitamin E. Lastly, add the lemon essential oil.

Now all you have to do is apply the lemon lip gloss to your lips. Your lips will feel amazing, look amazing, and smell amazing too!

    There sure are…this is just one of my favorites that I’ve tried, but you can also make your own lipgloss by combining 2 tablespoons of solid shortening (Crisco), which you can get at any grocery store and 1 tablespoon of Kool-Aid drink mix of your choice (powdered, with sugar already added). It’s very easy and cheap, and you can choose your flavors too!

    I am ten years old and I have made MILLIONS of lip glosses… you should see my fridge it’s filled with loads of lip balms!
    I have made different types, as well. Here’s my favourite:
    You will need –
    Vaseline/Petroleum Jelly
    Sugar (brown works best)
    An old chapstick
    Something sharp enough to cut the chapstick with. An eyeshadow applicator without the sponge works great.
    A small pot (I don’t HAVE any, I live in Melbourne so could someone tell me a shop that sells lip balm pots? And plus, you can use an empty bottle cap like I do)
    Something to mix with
    A spoon
    A container or a plastic lid

    Grab your spoon and Vaseline, and take out some Vaseline and use your mixing tool to slide it off on the lid or container.
    Then take your chapstick and your cutting stick and slice off about half an inch of the chapstick. Add with the petroleum jelly.
    Grab your spoon and wipe it with a tissue to take off the petroleum jelly.
    Spoon out a bit of sugar with the mixture.
    Take your mixing stick and mix it all together!
    Once it’s all stirred together, slide it into the pot. Mix it around a bit more, and if there is hardly any in there, add some more Vaseline. Mix well.
    Put the lid on the pot and then keep it in your fridge for several minutes. Take it out and stash it in your make up box.
    Ta-dah! Your very own homemade lip balm! You can make lots and sell them at your school. Make some money!

  18. Nora

    I love the recipe by Lauren, it makes a lot and its really shiny, but does anyone make one with lots of flavor? Just wondering…

  19. PoopyPapa

    For a base you need Vaseline, for shine you need clear shiny lip gloss, for scent a yum smelling lip gloss or some flavour, and for colour you need a lipstick, eyeshadow or blush or coloured lip gloss. Mix any of these with the base and you’re done!
