Lip Balm DIY

This post is about the lip balm / lipgloss that I had made. There are a lot of  lipgloss DIYs on youtube, that I had viewed a lot of times but never thought of making one.
Birth of my lip gloss:  I had bought a lipstick from Oriflame DISCO FEVER that was on discount sale. And I had bought it. I was very happy to see the color, but when I had twisted the lipstick, it fell on my lap. I was so upset that I had wasted money on it. And so my CREATIVE COPY CAT brain gave birth to this lip balm.
I had a small tub of garnier night peeling cream. I used it to store my lipbalm.

I had mixed vaseline, a little sweet almond oil and my broken lipstick, mixed thoroughly and kept it in microwave for 30 seconds and what I got was something like this

It happened to be a beautiful berryish pinkish color with shimmers....

And here is a swatch of it on my hand

Staying power is less, stays on for 30 minutes  max.....

Feeling proud to  be de discoverer of  the color...
