Recipe starts at 0:58
1/2 tsp Castor Oil
1/2 tsp Shea Butter
1 crayon stick
Place the ingredients in a double boiler over medium-high heat. Stir them as they melt. Remove them from the stove and pour into containers. This liquid cools quickly so keep the water boiling. Pour them into an old lipstick or lip balm container. Allow them to cool at room temperature or place them in the refrigerator until firm for 10-15 minutes. It is that easy!
The lipstick did stay in a solid form after it cooled. It is the same consistency as normal lipstick.
I am going to experiment and use different oils such as almond, avocado and jojoba. Jojoba is great for shine. Remember that castor oil is a thicker oil.
I will also be experimenting using cocoa butter and mango butters too!

(CBS) When applying lipstick – or puckering up to made-up lips – you might have more to worry about than stained teeth.
Four hundred of the most popular lipsticks on the market contain traces of lead according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration analysis, the Washington Post reported.
The FDA’s response? We know.
“Reports about lead in lipstick are not new,” The FDA said on its website, referencing lab tests from the 1990s, as well as a 2007 report from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The campaign at the time tested 33 red lipsticks at the time and found that 60 percent of them contained lead.
The FDA followed-up on that study by testing 20 lipsticks in 2008, and found trace levels of lead, but said the levels were within range of what’s expected from lipsticks formulated with color additives. The FDA then conducted a large-scale follow-up of 400 lipsticks and in December 2011 concluded:
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics maintains that any amount of lead in cosmetics is too much.
“Lead builds up in the body over time and lead-containing lipstick applied several times a day, every day, can add up to significant exposure levels,” Dr. Mark Mitchell, co-chair of the environmental health task force for the National Medical Association, said in a Safe Cosmetics written statement.
Too much lead can affect nearly every system in the body, according to the CDC. Lead poisoning can damage the nervous, muscular and reproductive systems, and has been tied to kidney damage and reduce IQ in kids.
What did the FDA report find? The average lead concentration in the 400 lipsticks tested was 1.11 parts per million, according to the Post, but some products far exceeded that.
The Personal Care Products Council, a Washington D.C.-based trade group that represents the cosmetic industry, said in a statement that “Lead is ubiquitous and found naturally in air, water, and soil. Using lipstick containing lead at this level would result in exposure 1000 times less than from daily consumption of water meeting EPA drinking water standards.”
