Homemade Lip gloss!

So easy and fun!  Petroleum Jelly and Kool-Aid!  Found the idea HERE.

What you'll need:

1 tub petroleum jelly (vaseline)
1 pkg of kool-aid drink crystals - whatever flavor you want, or you can make a few
lip gloss containers
labels printed out on sticker paper
scissors or 1 inch paper punch


1. put about 1 cup vaseline in a microwave safe bowl
2. heat the vaseline in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each heating. It took me about 5 minutes to melt each batch of vaseline. It will be liquid when it is fully melted. It will be very hot! Make sure you wear gloves or oven mitts and make sure children are being supervised.
3. take out of microwave and stir in kool-aid drink crystals until desired colour is reached - I used the whole package for each batch. Stir until the crystals are completely dissolved.
4. if starting to solidify you can heat again for another 30 seconds - skip this step if it is still liquidy
5. pour into your lip gloss containers and leave to solidify - a couple hours
6. repeat this whole process if making more flavors
7. print out labels on sticker paper
8. using either a 1 inch punch, or scissors, cut out the circle labels and attach to your lip gloss container
9. give to all your favourite people, but remember to save a few for yourself too!

I found these containers on ebay. I believe you can also find them on Amazon.

 I got the 5g and would even go as big as the 10g next time.

Starting to get liquidy after a few minutes of stirring.

 Almost done!

Clear and ready for the Kool-Aid!  It only took about 5 minutes for me, but others were saying it took them longer!  Spoon the melted lip gloss into the containers and let cool.  Add a cute label and Wah lah!
