I would think it would smell too much like....crayons.  Cheesy  I usually throw lip balm away when the smell starts to remind me of crayons (usually after its melted in the car a few times).

Not all pigments used in crayons are approved by the FDA for cosmetic use.  They are non-toxic, but not cosmetically approved.

If it works for you, that's great, but I wouldn't sell/give these away without either letting people know what they're made of or finding some FDA approved colorants  Smiley

I bet it would work, though.  Crayons are just colorants in wax.

ok, so i tried it using beeswax, oil and honey. it definately tints the actual lip balm.. and i think it adds just a teensy bit of color to my lips. it smells mostly like honey/wax. maybe next time i'll put a drop of vanilla in there. yay for experimenting!

You might as well buy a jar of honey with some honeycomb. Microwave the comb a couple seconds and put a couple drops of foodcoloring to that.

Well, don't take my word for it, but the crayon idea is probably safe, even though they are not "approved" for cosmetic use by the FDA. If my son can eat a pack of Crayolas, you can throw a tiny bit of crayon into your lip gloss and live to tell the tale. Also, I hear that boiling arrowroot powder and putting it in lipbalm tints it reddish, but I haven't tried it so I don't know if it really works.
I buy stuff from this website all the time- http://www.seedman.com (be sure to scroll down to "Rachel's Supply") - they sell everything you need to make lipgloss (untinted) and other cool homemade stuff. I made all my X-mas gifts from this site when I was in my first year of college! Plus, they have "recipes" to make cosmetics and bath products, as well as a message board. If you get really good and want to sell your own, they sell containers too.
Good luck!

good point.  also, if you tried to market it, since the ingredients are not FDA approved, this could mean BIG trouble for you.  I would stick to dyes specifically FOR lip balms or even koolaid.

i think i would buy it just because it has crayons in it. I love crayons. i want to be a crayon. plus you could always put one of those fake "not intended as a cosmetic" notes on it like people do when the sell cigars on ebay as collectors items "meant for colloection puropses only"
