How A Freebie Inspired A New Product

Each of these containers holds 5 ml.
What To Put In It?
After a few days of deliberating, I decided this container needed to be filled with something that would make good use of the mirrored lid. I've never tried making a colored lip gloss before, so my Ultimate Balm Gloss Pot formula was reworked to include some pearlized red.
As it is pretty much impossible to make only 5 ml, I made the smallest amount possible and ended with enough to fill 2 containers. Half of the mixture was poured into a normal Gloss Pot container (thick frosted glass with black or gold lid), and the rest into the snazzy-looking freebie.
I seriously have to tip my hat to my supplier. They must have known this small gift would be good for business. Of course I fell in love with the dang thing and had to add this product to the list for my coming order. Chalk one up for them. But, at the same time, I must blow them a (glossy) kiss. Because of this little incident, I will soon be able to offer personalized colored lip gloss. Chalk one up for me. Win win – you gotta love it!
PS: The lip gloss adds lots of moisture and just a hint of color. This first batch has however turned out just a tad too soft, so the formula will need a bit of adjustment.
