About to apply my new favorite delicious plum lipstick!

About to apply my new favorite delicious plum lipstick!

Do you love experimenting with lipstick colors? I do! One day I’m wearing “Gwen Stefani red” and the next I’m applying “Kim Kardashian nude”. Usually I buy a new lip color weekly but not anymore because… now I can make my very¬†own!

This week in the Cosmetics and Fragrance lab we created our own lipstick by melting 28 ml of wax on a hot plate and mixed in 0.1 ml of our favorite dye color as well as 0.1 ml of our favorite flavoring. My partner and I decided to do a chocolate-cherry plum lipstick using purple dye and cherry and chocolate chip flavoring. When finished and mixed to a nice, smooth substance; we poured our mixes into actual lipstick tubes. It came out absolutely AMAZING! It has a beautiful sheer color that matches any look.

What cool things have you created in your precollege class this summer that you’re proud to show off? Share below!
