DIY Tinted Lip Balm

Perfect… I love it!!! This is an awesome DIY.

I used to do this a while back and they turned out great. If you plan to mix different lipsticks  to make a specific color you want, try to stick to the same brand because sometime the chemicals from different product lines will not interact so well and the end result might not be so good.

When it comes to reunions, either you want to look different — or you want to look the same. It is crucial to make a great impression without looking like you tried too hard.
