I’ve always been a lip gloss girl. I may have experimented with lipstick when I was younger, but that was before I figured out that I love lip gloss. I’d have at least three different shades of gloss in my purse at one time. Who knew what my mood would be hour by hour, minute by minute? I had to be prepared.
Recently, I decided to try out lipstick again. I went and bought quite a few different shades. I used the tester on the back of my hand while in the store and the colors looked perfect. By the time I got home and tried it on, it seemed as if the colors looked completely different and I always ended up looking like something out of a circus.
Now on top of my stacks of lip gloss, I have stacks of lipstick that I may never use. Am I the only lip gloss girl with this problem? I feel like I’ve wasted money and I’ll never use what I paid for. Well, I had this bright idea to turn all of those unused lipsticks into Kissable Lips Lip Gloss.
This is another easy (three ingredient) beauty idea. With the minimal amount of lipstick used I’ll have lip gloss for months and months. Enjoy!

Lipstick (Top) Lip Gloss (Bottom); See the difference?
Pour mixture into bottom part of contact lens case and place in freezer for 5 minutes. While containers are in freezer, decorate tops of lens case with stickers.

Remove from freezer and screw tops back on contact lens case. The lip gloss will liquefy again after 10 minutes and will be ready for use.
