A bit more red when diluted than the original, but still a nice effect. When I get the time to do this I usually use up 5 or more lipsticks, some of them are going to be perfect! I also will mix a little of this and that to change the color up a little. If I use this shade again I'm going to mix in a little black cherry/grape that has alot of purple to make it a little less red.

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.

they make a no-slip grip paint on product that is used to coat tools; i think that would work for a no slip pattern on the bottom...

I think what you are looking for is this YUDU machine- around 300$ for the machine according to the website. I didn't see these at Micheal's last time I popped in there.

I think its durability depends on type of use- this is my first attempt so I'm not sure. It's for the kids, so i'm thinking 6mo-1 year depending on how much they like it  Wink I think for an adult it would hold up to average use. I am going to try an adult size chair using the instructions on youtube eventually.
here's the link
