Today we're gonna learn how to make your own cranberry lip gloss! There's nothing funner for me than getting a bunch of my girlfriends together and whipping up fast and easy homemade beauty recipes. We do everything from crazy face masks, to nail polishes, to moisturizers, etc. And, since my last “make your own lipgloss” post seemed to generate so much buzz, I though I'd give you guys another yummy lipgloss recipe, and this time it's delicious cranberry! Here's how to!

Make Your Own Cranberry Lip Gloss


Step 1

Take 1 tablespoon almond oil, 10 fresh cranberries, 1 teaspoon honey and 1 teaspoon petroleum jelly (optional – for more shine).

Step 2

Mix together all ingredients and place in a microwave or heat-resistant container. Heat in the microwave or a water bath until the mixture just begins to boil (1-2 minutes in the microwave). Stir well and gently mash the berries. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove all pieces of cranberry. Stir and allow to cool completely. When cool, spoon into a clean container.

Hiya just wondering if you can replace the cranberries with anything else such as strawberries or apple etc


Cranberries have a stronger colour.


wooow I want to try this !!!

I have to ask my dad what a sieve is, but im so gonna try this. one question: do you drain it over another bowl? because i dont want to drain it and then something happens ha ha.


is almond oil the same as almont flavoured essence?


how about beets??? Its a good stain you think it will work? do they expire?

Awesome, i am soooo gonna try this, and yeah, CAN you use a different berry, or will it just expire?

oh yeah, is it okay if we just put like juice or something or no berries?

oh yeah, can we substitute almond oil with another oil, like olive?


Me and my sister were making some and she spilled. That stains never coming out……
