Every woman wants glossy, shiny lips. This story will show you how to make your own liquid lip gloss, so you are never out of stock, and the lips are always shining!
A cosmetic product, liquid lip glosses, are a must in every woman's handbag. A lip gloss is unlike a lip balm as well as a lipstick. The gloss is used to create a fuller and a poutier look. It gives a lustrous shine, with very little effort.
It is basically a soft liquid, with fine spread quality, that comes in frosty, metallic, and mostly, clear, translucent sheers. For all those who are wondering how liquid lip gloss can be made at home, try out the following formulas given below.

Raspberry Gloss

  • Raspberry blitz flavor oil, 2 tsp
  • Sweet almond oil, 4 ounces
  • White beeswax granules, ½ ounce
  • Liquid sweetener, 1 tsp
  • Sparkle crimson mica, 1 tsp

On a low flame, melt the beeswax in a double boiler.
Once the beeswax has melted completely, take it off the flame (ensure that there are no unmelted lumps or granules), add sweet almond oil, raspberry flavor oil, sweetener, and sparkle mica, and stir until all ingredients have blended well. Pour the liquid gloss consistency into a tall slender container. Your homemade lip gloss is ready for use!

Colored Gloss

  • Petroleum jelly, 1 tbsp
  • Colored lipstick, 1 inch scoop
  • Vanilla essence, 3 drops
  • Zip pouch, 1
  • Eye glitter, a pinch
In the zip pouch, put the colored lipstick piece, petroleum jelly, eye glitter, and vanilla essence. Remove all air from the bag, and zip to seal it. Using your fingers, gently mix, and blend the jelly and the color, till well blended and uniformly colored. Make a small incision in the zip pouch, and squeeze out the gloss into a small container.

Apple-Flavored Gloss

  • Natural apple essence oil, 3 ml
  • Sweet almond oil, 3 ounces
  • Liquid vegetable glycerin, 1.5 ounces
  • Vitamin E oil, 10 drops
In a small glass bowl, mix apple essence oil with almond oil and vitamin E oil. Gently stir in liquid glycerin, and blend well. Pour the liquid gloss in a slender glass container and seal it.

Honey and Cranberry Smacker

  • Fresh cranberries, 10
  • Honey, 1 tsp
  • Sweet almond oil, 1 tbsp
  • Vitamin E oil, 1 drop
Mix all the ingredients in microwave bowl, and heat until it starts to boil. Remove from the microwave, and using a spatula gently crush the cranberries against the sides of the bowl. Let the cranberry mix cool down. The mix should be strained through a fine sieve to remove all the fruit pieces. Pour the strained liquid in a glass container.

Clear Liquid Gloss

  • Sweet almond Oil, 2 ounces
  • Clear cosmetic grade liquid oil based color, ½ ml
  • Liquid sweetener, 2 ml
  • Candelilla wax, 1/8 tsp
In a glass bowl, microwave the candelilla wax until liquid. Add all other ingredients, and blend well. Pour the liquid in a glass container.
If one is short of time, use pure petroleum jelly, with a lipstick shade mixed in it. Using just a few ingredients to make lip gloss, one can save time and money. It not only adds luster to your lips, it also protects them from drying. One can wear the cosmetic alone or as a top-on for lipstick, to get that extra shine. So, now that you know how to make liquid lip gloss, shine those lips ladies!
