Lip Gloss

Vegetable shortening, honey, unsweetened drink mix (eg. Kool-Aid), hot water

  1. Use a small bowl to mix 1 tbsp of the solid vegetable shortening and 1 tsp of honey.  In a separate bowl, mix the drink mix and 1/4 tsp of hot water until it is dissolved.  Stir in as much of the drink mix as possible. The actual amount will depend on the temperature of water. The more you can dissolve, the stronger the flavour will be.
  2. You can choose the color and flavor of you lip gloss by the type of drink mix you use. 
  3. Add one drop of the water mixture to the shortening/honey base.  Stir well.  Repeat until you get the color/flavor combination you want.  Pour into a clean container or old lip gloss pot.
  4. Store in the refrigerator.  Keeps for 3 days, but it tastes so good that you will use it up very fast!


Here are some recipe ideas from our visitors.

  1. You can make lip gloss with shortening and any drink mix. Just mix them together and maybe add a little food coloring, then microwave it until it's a liquid. Once it's a liquid pour it into the container you want it to be in then let it set.
  2. Instead of cool aid I used pop and it taste like something had just exploded in my mouth so try pop it taste like your favorites candy and more.
  3. Try smashing up candy canes and mixing them in.
  4. Just use petroleum Jelly and kool-aid. Warm up the petroleum jelly in the microwave for 30 sec or more. Than mix the kool-aid into it. Let it sit if you want it sour, or add sugar to make it sweet! You don't have to put it in the refrigerator either! Add a tiny drop of water if you like and mix it in. It stains your lips because it's kool-aid my lips were red and they looked cute! Taste it! it tastes good If you like sour or sweet!
  5. I used "Pop Rocks" in one batch (melted) and wow! A big flavor burst! I'd say better than brands that are for sale! I also used some yummy teas such as strawberry, chamomile, and "sleepy time"! They were wonderful! 
    PS Try using hot cocoa mix!
  6. Use some glitter for cake decorating to add glitter to your lip gloss.
