I found this article, and I have to say – it sounds really interesting!
I’ve made my own lipbalms that turned out pretty great, but I really like the idea of choosing the exact shade [or mixing & matching your own shadow of lipstick].
Would you do this? Have you done it?

I don’t know how comfortable I would feel doing this. While most crayons are non-toxic, it doesn’t mean they are hypoallergenic.

AB Bride: I could totally see this as a point. But as someone who isn’t super sensitive [at least my lips aren’t], I think it could be neat to try.
I can’t see it really being any worse than some of the standard lipsticks out on the market today.

My home has been crayon-free, since my kids stored some in their pockets, and they went through the washer and dryer (melt-olla!). I never want to see one again – ha ha!
P.S. My younger daughter’s friend wanted to see how many markers she could fit, by flushing them down their toilet. That was worse. They needed to hire a backhoe to dig up their sewer line.

I have! I used coconut oil and crayons. The pigment is great! Its really more of a tint than anything. A word of caution though…plain crayon tastes like crayon. We added some vanilla extract and it tastes like vanilla and crayon. 🙁 I have not found a way to combat the crayon taste. My lips are softer than a baby’s butt though!!!

MammaPants: That’s awesome! Maybe some peppermint or cinnamon would give it a good smell/flavor? I’m not really concerned about the flavor.. lipstick always tastes kinda meh anyway. I’d be more worried about a super waxy-crayon like smell.

jenilynevette: I can totally smell it, but I’m sure its because its right under my nose. Lol. No one else has complained about it.

I’ve done those before, using beeswax crayons and it was AWESOME.
