Lipstick - Berry Nice!


In between developing mascara, a couple of new cleansers, new deodorants, cKc products and a tattoo-friendly skin mist, I found time to slot in a lab session for this lipstick. The first batch I did was too dry, the second was much better but a bit grainy (due to my own laziness when it came time to grind the pigments).

Here's the third batch: which I am loving!




I decided to try putting less pigment in this one as I fancied a tinted lipstick for the summer months. Above: the color with a single quick swipe on the forethumb (is that what that part of the thumb is called?)


And here's the color in a double layer on the lips. I've named it Berry Nice (which I am sure already exists somewhere in the world of commercial brand lip colors, but I've decided I don't really care – so there.)

What's in it
Ingredients: cocoa butter, shea butter, fractionated coconut oil, a coconut oil derivative that is commonly called 'plant-based-silicone', beeswax, carnauba wax, vitamin e and pigments. That's it.

Batch 3 review
Texture: silky smooth and luxurious feeling
Moisturizing factor: tops
Color: as you see
Scent: none
Satisfaction: much
