I’ve been lucky enough to have the pleasure of testing out a natural DIY lipstick kit from Create Your Cosmetics, an Australian owned company founded by Lana King, specialising in helping you create your own cosmetics at home, using natural ingredients.
I don’t have a lot of experience when it comes to making my own cosmetics, so this was very new to me, but it turned out to be quite a lot of fun and very easy and quick to make.
The kit I used was the Pink Amour (with Pink Mica and deliciously tasting natural Strawberry Fragrance Oil, it smells so good!). I also had a few additional Mica colours to play around with.
It’s basically a matter of melting and mixing and in a very short amount of time your lipstick mixture is ready to pour into the mould.
The first time I didn’t get it exactly right as I forgot to place a rubber band around the mould and the mixture was too hot when I placed it in the mould, but practice makes perfect and second time around it came out looking great.
I even tried mixing up a few different colours, the Mica Pearl added a shimmery touch to the pink lipstick and Mica Pink and Mica Orange turned out to be a pretty coral colour lipstick.
The ingredients used in this are very moisturising, such as the jojoba oil and shea butter and the actual lipstick colour gives a very pretty sheen to lips. You can always add more mica in, depending on how strong you want the colour to be.
If you want to get really creative you can buy a whole pack of mica colours and start experimenting.
The great thing about this kit is you know exactly what is going into your lipstick and onto your lips.
The ingredients used are all natural and of a very high quality -
- Candelilla Wax
- Shea Butter
- Castor Oil
- Jojoba Oil

You receive enough ingredients in your kit to make enough lipsticks to last for many years! The kit also comes with droppers, lipstick tubes, lipstick mould and stirring sticks.
I can’t wait to try out the other DIY kits, they have lotion Bar DIY kits and soap making DIY kits, as well as many beautiful fragrance oils to make your own perfumes.
