1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Sheer tinted SPF lipstick/chapstick on: December 12, 2011 10:29:26 AM

I really wanted a sheer SPF chapstick/lipstick in a range of colors. I even get freckles on my lips, so SPF was important to me. I came up with this recon to get exactly what I wanted. I was thinking I'm not the only one...

I put water in a deep saucepan and put custard cups in, heated them to just under boiling. I used chapstick brand SPF30 and 50, four sticks. I mean it when I say SPF!



I melt them together with one stick of a dark lipstick - loreal's raisin rage here. for medium colors I use 2-3 sticks of chapstick and light colors a 1:1 ratio.




I then put in a 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil for shine and feel. I have also tried olive oil or shea butter or whatever-

mix em up-

I have access to lab disposable pipettes, you can get them on-line from make your own chapstick/lipstick suppliers I think. I use them to transfer the mix to the now empty chapstick containers.



and waa-laaa! a sheer SPF lipstick suitable for preventing freckles in the deep south- and I can have whatever color I want. my sister is getting some for Xmas, shhhh.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / cardboard chair on: March 18, 2010 05:39:25 PM


I finally finished this kids chair I made out of cardboard. I used a method of the cartonnistes in europe. There is an instructable on it and lots of stuff in french out there. I took me forever to do this, but a less overscheduled individual could have done it in a weekend, I think. I am so proud of it!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / leather question on: August 03, 2009 02:22:44 PM
I have some upholstery leather and would love to try and make a bag with it. It's a little soft to stand up... can you put interfacing on it to stiffen it? or will I just need to make something a little more free form?
