I had my cart full of things to make foundation, blush and eyeshadow when I stumbled into the lip section. Immediately overwhelmed, and my cart got too big! I ended up just going with this, because it had a bunch of the things I was going to get anyway (especially the vitamin E oil which costs $5 for the amount you get here alone). I also liked that it had a recipe to start with. I knew I'd be overwhelmed with all of the powders, so I wanted an easy lip recipe. Well I just made it, and I love it! It's a very easy recipe and everything except standard measuring spoons come with. I actually only made 1/4 of the recipe (so about 1/8 of the total package, since this is more than enough to make the recipe twice), and got a full chap stick tube, and 2.5 full 26 mm pans. Oh my, enough to last me for so long! And the color is sheerly (har) gorgeous.
I wanted to start making my own cosmetic and was looking for an area to start. I started with the lip balm kit and it was so much fun and REALLY easy to work with. The kit comes with 10 lip balm tubes but the ingredients given can make way more than that! I made about 8 lip balms and used the remainders to make my own lipstick base. I made about 9 lipsticks so far. Definitely value for money! Makes great gifts! :)
This is a great deal if you want to try making your own lip balm. I used a quarter of the included recipe to try it out.(They included a print out of the recipe - a nice unexpected touch.) I got three tubes of great lip balm that are comparable to the $6 colored balm I was buying at the DS. I can't wait to try a non colored version and a version where I add some honey. Great deal, easy to do, and TKB has great customer service.
