4 ozs. ~ all ingredients are weighed
2.8 ozs Castor Oil
.08 ozs Iron Oxide/Mica Powder/D&C color (a combination to obtain the
desired shade of lipstick)
.36 ozs Mica White (for a pastel shimmer lipstick) otherwise add this

Put the ingredients from Phase I into a
small pan over very low heat. Be sure to pulverize the iron oxide,
mica powder, D&C color and/ or Lip Tints before adding them to the pot.
Stir well. Add the ingredients from Phase II and heat until the
mixture reaches 170° or until fully melted. Remove from heat then
add the ingredients from Phase III and pour into lipstick tubes or lip
This lipstick has a fantastic feel similar to lip balm, and the color will
show on your lips. It has great staying power and doesn't feel
heavy or greasy.
Photo above: We used crimson lip tint, black & red iron oxide, cranberry
oil. The lanolin in this recipe is what actually makes the lipstick
color come off
on your lips. Using about a half ounce of any combination of iron oxide,
powder, D&C color (our Lip Tints), finely ground, will be the final color of
lipstick. So go ahead and blend your own special color.
