A lip smackin’ good time

I found a few recipes online recently for tinted lip balm/gloss.  My absolute “must have” makeup item would have to be, hands down, lip gloss/lipstick.  I’ve already mastered {ha!} chapstick, so tinted lip gloss sounded like a perfect next project!  I tried the gloss recipe first and the results were just right for this blog: {un}perfect.  Since I have a ton of empty chapstick tubes, I poured the gloss into the tubes.  While it holds up decently, as soon as the gloss hits a pair of lips, it melts into super gloss.  A little too much gloss, if you ask me.  So, I tried a tinted lip balm recipe today.  This recipe fared much better, but this time not quite enough gloss for my liking.  Maybe later I’ll try for a happy medium.  Once I get the {in my opinion} perfect recipe, I’ll post.  In the meantime, my friends’ lips will be getting all kinds of glossy, balmy spoiling going on 🙂

All 200 tubes have been shipped out and now I can’t wait to see them with their little labels.  Thanks, WhimWed, for the opportunity!

Mass production

I just received a big-time order for a few hundred tubes of chapstick – WOW!  The Nashville-based company WhimWed sells GOR-GEOUS whimsical handcrafted floral bouquets and they want to use my chapsticks as giveaways to their bridal clients.  How fun is that?!  I’m super excited for my supply shipment to come in so I can get started.  I also ordered some fun flavors {to be revealed soon 🙂 } to experiment with.  I’ll be sure to take photos of my kitchen as it gets transformed into a chapstick factory.  But in the meantime, check out the whimsical wonderment that is WhimWed!
