Easy and sweet homemade lip gloss

I love how simple and easy this recipe is. Plus I love the free printable that comes with it.Here’s a lip gloss recipe with ingredients you can find at your local store!

A few tips:

Try to use disposable items (like craft sticks and paper bowls) to make clean up easier.

When cleaning out your mixer use lots of dish liquid soap (Dawn works well)

While it doesn’t look like it on the ingredients list – this recipe makes a lot (especially when you are putting it into little containers) so remember a little goes a long way.

I used the 1 inch containers with lids from The container Store – you can purchase those here.

These are so cute given in a gold draw string bag – you can purchase that here.

Curious as to what the “secret” ingredient is? It’s Light corn syrup! It’s sweet it thins out the Vaseline to give it a nice consistency and you can find it at most grocery stores!
