Homemade, edible lip gloss
The perfect girlie-girl hack -- from Tracy:
We've used the following recipe to make homemade lip gloss. This is a great birthday party idea.
- Vegetable shortening
- unsweetened drink mix (Kool-Aid)
- hot water
- cake decorating glitter (optional)
Use a small bowl to mix 1 tbsp of the solid vegetable shortening and 1 tsp of honey. In a separate bowl, mix the drink mix and 1/4 tsp of hot water until it is dissolved. Stir in as much of the drink mix as possible. The actual amount will depend on the temperature of water. The more you can dissolve, the stronger the flavour will be. You can choose the color and flavor of you lip gloss by the type of drink mix you use. Add one drop of the water mixture to the shortening/honey base. Stir well. Repeat until you get the color/flavor combination you want. Add glitter (optional) - stir. Pour into a clean container or old lip gloss pot. Store in the refrigerator. Keeps for 3 days, but it tastes so good that you will use it up very fast!
