How To Make Lipgloss

"Lip gloss helps protect your lips as the colder weather approaches, all while adding a pop of color and shine. Learn how to make lip gloss at home! It’s the perfect combination of an easy recipe and inexpensive ingredients. With a few ingredients, you can whip up a whole lot of fun lip gloss flavors. We used tropical punch, watermelon, cherry, and orange, but there are lots of flavors and combinations you can create! Petroleum jelly forms a natural barrier against moisture. It has been used since its discovery in 1859 to prevent skin from chapping, making it a perfect base for lip gloss."
