I am making my own lip gloss. Some of the recipes on this site include honey as an ingredient. I'm allergic to honey so is there a substitute I can use? Or do I need it at all? Thanks.

Thanks! I will try some soon and see if they will work for my science fair project!
Does anyone have a recipe for a lip STAIN? Thank you!
Whatever you do, DO NOT use any "colored" henna on your lips. These aren't really henna they're just hair dye chemicals which are labeled as henna or contain some henna extract. Lynda meant henna as in natural henna, which you can buy off the internet in powder form. Just make sure that it is 100% henna and generally the fresher the powder the nicer the color.
How do you make semi permanent lip stain?

Koolaid powder mixed in Vaseline or just wet it down and rub it on, it can be bold so watch out! Or take a minute to enjoy a red popsicle. It will give a nice flush to your lips. Just think about when you were a kid and would have stained lips from one!
When your lipstick is running low, transfer it to a small container and add vaseline to it. You then have instant lipgloss which also acts as a lubricant for lips. In winter, my lips are never dry or chapped due in part to this lipgloss recipe.

You can make your own lip gloss for a fraction of what you would normally spend on make up.
Take some Vaseline and mix in the right amount of food coloring.
For reddish tints mix lots of reds. For a purplish, maroonish color mix in red with a hint of blue. Mix in yellow food coloring with a lot of red for a light peachy orange color. Get creative!
Keep this mixture in the fridge for 2-3 minutes to make the colors set.
Buy some small round containers with lids from the dollar store for your creations.
Another way to store the lipgloss is to clean out an old water color paint set. Keep each color in the water color paint container and use a brush to apply to your face.
Voila! Now you have some stylish lipgloss.

I can recommend yaoh.co.uk. Their balms are incredible, totally natural and you will find you need to use it a lot less than anything made with Vaseline or equivalent. They smell divine too! No, I'm not vegan, and I don't work for them, I just know a wonderful product when I use it. (02/28/2007)
