How many times have you purchased a super gorgeous lipstick, only to realize you probably will never wear it? I know that this happens to me all the time. Instead of letting it sit and collect dust or tossing it in the trash, there is another use for it! You ready for this? Turn it into a tinted lip balm! The color will be toned down a notch and your lips will be kissable as ever.
Making your own tinted lip balm is surprisingly easy. Just take the lipstick you’re going to use for the project, Vaseline (or any type of petroleum jelly) and coconut oil. Mix these ingredients together in any ratio you’d like. Color too light? Add a little more lipstick? Color still too bold? Add some more Vaseline. Super easy, right? And you just saved yourself the hassle of throwing a lipstick (and cash!) in the garbage.
