Love Mac lipstick but can’t afford the price tag? Ever thought about making DIY lipstick? 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.
The colors of Mac lipstick are some of my favorites, and you will not believe what I just learned… You can make these cool Mac lipstick shades at home for pennies! This weekend, I learned how to make five fun colors of DIY Mac Lipstick. I can’t wait to make more. 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). Best of all, you only need a few ingredients to make amazing lipstick and it is a super quick DIY beauty idea. Also a cool and fun project for “girls only get togethers” and teens.
There are many different options for making your own homemade lipstick and the ingredients can vary from person to person.
To Make DIY Mac Lipstick 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

DIY Mac Lipstick Tutorial
Gather your materials
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.
Remove the paper from the part of the crayon that you just cut like so:
Fill a pot of water about this size:
Set the temperature from LO-MED
Place a bowl or cup in the middle of the pot full of water (this will serve as a melting pot).
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.
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:
Apply with a lipstick brush applicator !
You’re finally finished! You can make all of your favorite MAC colors (or pretty darn close) by mixing different crayons to make your own custom colors!
