Whether you’re into Benetint, or the classic Revlon lip stains, stains can be a pain. They’re drying, and while their color may satisfy, their longevity–not so much.
So instead, consider this my friends: homemade lip stain with a slight sheen and serious moisture, not to mention lasting color.
Too good to be true? Never.
Here’s what you’ll need
Waxelene petroleum alternative jelly (available at health food stores)
Gel Food Coloring (found at craft or baking stores)
A kickass container
A mixing bowl
A spoon or knife
A heat source
Dish out the amount of stain your want into your mixing bowl. Melt the waxy jelly either 1 min micro or in a double boiler for those too hip to microwave.
Add no more than a pea sized amount of gel. When they say concentrated, they mean it. If you purchase online, you can get several colors to mix. My favorite is Rose–which is actually a hot pink.
Mix the two together until blended.
Pour your awesome new color creation into it’s permanent container.
Refrigerate to harden.
Beware of kissing the necks of men with white collars–this stain can stain!
