Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • I've read all instructions and watched the video but how can you make different color liquid lipsticks ?

    It's really easy.  Did you watch the How To Color Video?

    Basically, you will use about 1 teaspoon of color to 2 teaspoons of base.  

  • Is the Dimethicone 1.5 the same as Dimethicone 100/350? If not then can the Dimethicone 1.5 be purchased seperately?

    Here is where you would purchase the product:

    All three are dimethicones, the main difference is how thick they are.  1.5 is very thin, like water, 100 is thicker, and 350 is the thickest of them all.

    Dimethicone 1.5 is also volatile, which means that it disappears into the air over time.

  • Is the finished product from this formulation considered Vegan?

    Yes, if you use the Sunflower Wax instead of the Beeswax.

  • I like this recipe but I couldn't get the resin flake to dissolve completely, could there be something I'm doing wrong?

    If you follow the recipe, the material will definitely dissolve completely.  My guess would be perhaps you mis-measured and did not include enough of the isododecane as a solvent.  Otherwise, consider covering it tightly and allowing it to sit overnight.

  • Do you have a recipe for larger quantities?

    There is a link on the page, just above the Details and FAQ tabs which sends you to the recipe.  You  can adjust quantities to make a larger batch.

  • How do I make vegan lipstick? Do you have bases for this or can you point me in the right direction of which products I would need to purchase separately from you in order to create the vegan lipstick?

    The matte lipstick base on this page is vegan (presuming you use the Sunflower wax instead of the Beeswax).
