DIY Lip Gloss (sort of!)

We all know I have a weakness for ‘lip shit’ as my husband calls it. I’ve got lip glosses and balms everywhere: the car, my bedside table (honestly, I think there or two or three there!), several in my purse, two in my desk at work and I’ve been known to find old and petrified tubes of the stuff in strange and out of the way places. I totally blame my cats for the ones I find under the refrigerator. The point is, I’m addicted to the stuff and I’ve tried and used almost every brand out there.

I’ve been using the Skin Actives “Liquid Rainbow” for months now almost exclusively. It’s packed with good stuff and has an iridescent quality to it. It’s pretty thick and a little sticky. Because it reflects so much light it definitely has a bit of a lightning quality as well. It’s super moisturizing and my only wish is that it had a bit more color to it. It looks like a gloss and acts like a balm which is the perfect combo in my opinion!

I recently received my Meow Cosmetics order of the holiday stuff and instantly fell in love with the Ghost Stories Glow in Future. I experimented and added it to my tube of Liquid Rainbow and it’s beautiful! The perfect slightly better than natural lip color!   I just checked and the holiday collections are being retired after they reopen from their break. Rats! I was able to place an order for one as it was still available on the website as of two days ago, so maybe I’ll get a full size after all!  Hurry if you want one.  Also, if you use loose mineral pigments, you should have plenty to choose from just be sure to check the pigment you want to use is safe for lips. Here’s the color in case you want to try to duplicate it and it’s also pretty in powder form  on your eyes.

And a swatch of it:
