Do you love MAC lipstick?

Do you want to the best DIY advice? If your wallet’s taking a beating from the amount of money you spend on buying lipstick, chances are you’re probably lipstick obsessed. That’s okay, every girl has their thing. This step-by-step photo tutorial will show you how you can avoid spending a ton of money and time picking out lipsticks in department stores. It’s a fun way to obtain the colors you want and experiment with colors that are pretty hard to find (such as bright blue, green, or purple).

There are many different options for making your own lipstick and the ingredients can vary from person to person.

You Will Need:

  • Coconut Oil
  • Crayola Crayons (as many colors as  you like)
  • A jewelry or tool organizer
  • A pot of water
  • A small glass bowl

Step 1. 

Gather your materials

Step 2.

Place a crayon on a napkin and cut it about once inch from the tip. In this example we will use pink. This will make a color in MAC Lipsticks Amplified collection. The color is called Impassioned! If you’re a color fanatic you’ll know the color I’m talking about.

Step 3.

Remove the paper from the part of the crayon that you just cut like so:

Place a bowl or cup in the middle of the pot full of water (this will serve as a melting pot).

Step 7.

Take out your coconut oil. This is where you will determine which finish you want for your lipstick. If you’re looking for a sheer finish use 1/2 a tsp of coconut oil per inch of crayon. If you’re looking for a matte finish, use 1/4 tsp of coconut oil per inch of crayon.

Mix the desired amount of coconut oil with the portion of the cut crayon and put them into the center pot.

 Step 9

Once the crayon and coconut oil have fused together, you can pour it into your jewelry tray! Make sure all of the ingredients are mixed well and you have a creamy texture. Pour hot liquid into your tray like this:

    Amplified is a texture of m.a.c. Lipsticks, not a color. :)

    It looks like an Amplified lipstick called ‘impassioned.’

    Crayons are NOT LIPSAFE; they are not intended to be eaten and so if you use them as bases for your lipsticks you eat poison.

    In Italy we take this page as an example of bad DIY cosmetics; if I were you I would eliminate this page and write it again using lipsafe colours (for example lipsafe micas and oxides, you can find them for example on TKB trading)

    Crayons are safe if ACCIDENTALLY ingested. But what about a systematic, potentially daily, continuous, ingestion? Do you have a study that claims there are no risk? I don’t think this product is safe about this kind of use, and it looks like an inappropriate utilization. My suggestion is to use specific materials for this purpose, and let the children play with colours.

      Hi there,

      I know coconut oil is better than olive oil – but try it and see what your results are. We always recommend coconut oil, and it’s much healthier!

      Thanks for asking,
      Renee
