Candy Girl Lips ~

The notion of having a candy flavored lip gloss on your lips may sound sickly sweet but you would be surprised as what may be classified as candy flavoring.

With flavors such as cinnamon candy, watermelon, Tahitian vanilla, butter rum, lemon and chocolate mint candy the spectrum of flavors is mind-boggling at times.

Lip gloss is one of those beauty products that not only bring our lips alive regardless of color, but they look luscious, moisturized and conditioned. Wear it alone or over lipstick, lip gloss is here to stay.

Flavor is something only the wearer will appreciate or maybe the lucky person who receives a kiss from the wearer!

Honey Locks in Moisture

Conditioning The Lips ~

Before applying any lip gloss you need to make sure your lips are in tip top condition.

Particularly in the colder months when lips become drier and chapped lips are often a condition experienced by many adults and children.

A gentle but effective homemade lip scrub will remove all the dry skin and dead skin cells thanks to the exfoliating powers of sugar whilst adding natural moisturizers like honey and coconut oil. Who does not want smooth supple lips?

Candy Flavored Lip Gloss Recipe ~

Ingredients: (should make at least half a dozen lip glosses for 5g size plastic containers)

4 tsp coconut oil

4 tsp petroleum jelly

1 tsp paraffin wax

½ tsp oil based candy flavor of choice (if you have a few different ones you can combine to make your own signature flavor)

4 candy melts of choice

You Will Need:

Ziploc freezer bag

Bowl

Clean lip gloss containers

Grater

Method:

  • Grate the paraffin wax directly into the Ziploc freezer bag.
  • Add the petroleum jelly, coconut oil, candy melts and flavoring of choice into the bag and seal the bag.
  • Pop the bag into a bowl of hot water to allow the ingredients to melt and mix together.
  • Every so often you can massage the bag to help the products mix evenly.
  • When fully melted, you can snip a corner of the bag and squeeze the lip gloss into your containers. Screw on lids and pop into the fridge and allow to cool completely.
  • Your candy flavored lippy is now ready to use!
  • Apply with a lip brush and not your fingers, it is 100% more hygienic and uses less product.
  • Pop your brush in and remove gloss in one go. If you wish, use the back of your hand as a palette to work from. Don’t forget to clean your lip brush in-between uses. If carrying around in your makeup bag, make sure to carry some disposable wipes to clean your brush. At home use a makeup brush cleanser which is easy and quick to make using commonly found ingredients in the kitchen.

Tips ~

Play around with quantities if you want to make as a makeup craft for teens and their friends. The bulk buy of seed bead containers in craft shops are also very useful and cost effective. Recycle some contact lens cases to use if you have any spare ones.

Fancy a sparkle to your lip gloss? Add some cake decorating glitter!

Substitute flavored oils with Kool-Aids if you have them. Kool-Aids are particularly good for young children as a fun activity.

These make a fantastic gift for so many occasions even to your other half make a colorless but flavored lippy for valentine’s day as a creative romantic idea! This makes a great alternative if they are a Chap Stick fan or suffers with dry lips. All natural and chemical free too!

A few great alternative recipes to try are a Citrus lip Gloss and a Layered Lip Gloss.

      Candy-flavored lip gloss....mmmm Yum. I bought one and loved it....but my grandson found it and ate it! Some things are just too yummy to resist! Next time, I'll have to hide it. I don't think his mother was too pleased with Grandma......especially because I thought it was hilarious.

      You know Suz.....some of these young Moms have no sense of humor at all!!! LMAO...UP+++

      Hi pstraubie48,

      What fun you and your grandson will have making homemade lippy now! I don't know what the fascination is but kids, boys and girls seem to be drawn to lipstick and glosses like bees to honey!! Making kid friendly gloss is great and it doesn't need to have much color either. perfect for the little boys!! Have fun and many thanks for sharing on! :-)

      Excellent hub! The directions are clear and complete and the format is appealing. Can't wait to try to make our own lip gloss, we just need to settle on the first flavor to try. :)

      Hi thebookmom,

      Many thanks for your lovely comments! The downside to this Lippy is exactly what you said - deciding WHICH flavor to make first!!! You can quickly see how a set of 25 or 30 small jars would disappear in no time!!! Have fun experimenting and deciding. Look forward to hearing how it goes!!!

      Make my own lip gloss? Never thought about it. It's so much easier to order all flavors from Avon and I have tons of tubes on hand. It seems like a fun, crafty idea.

      LOL to Paula's comment! Young moms. No sense of humor! Haha!

      This is a perfect rainy day activity for me and my daughter. We both like lip gloss and this would be such fun. You ought to put all these together and write a book on homemade body treatments/makeup. Great hub, up, awesome and pinned.

      I didn't see this when it came out, but as I was paging down, I spotted it. It actually has candy melts in it?! Wow, it would be so tempting to lick it off! Fabulous idea! I like that there are many different flavors that could be made.

      Hi Kathryn,

      This was a fun one to do and so versatile, depending on what you like flavor wise. There are some suppliers doing hundreds of flavorings to buy and some sound quite delicious! Thanks so much for all your interest Kathryn!
