Ever put lipstick on your soap??!?!?!?! LOL

What a headline! LOL!! What a Saturday, I got to be creative, didn't realize that I hadn't made soap since July!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness what have I been doing? I know I have been playing with mineral make up but NO SOAP!?!?!?!??! Got 3 batches made of soap, 2 for replenishment of ones I am getting low on and one is for a December swap, I will post pics of the soaps tomorrow, except for the swap one, that will be a surprise for those that are participating. As long as it turns out! :)

My first attempt at lipstick, now lets just say I may be reformulating the recipe to get the "slip" I like, but over all I do love the color, now out of 15 containers only 2 look this good, the others, well lets just say they aren't that pretty. OK so 3 batches of soaps, lip stick and now on to the final creation several candles!

Here they are all 13 of them! I did Brambleberry's Fresh baked bread for 2 (had a sample that I just had to try) and also made 4 candles of Lychee Red Tea, which I have to say I love! The other 7 were Scents from Daystar, 3 were Black Raspberry & Vanilla scent, the other 4 were scented Buttercream Frosting. I opted not to color any of these, just let them be the natural color of the wax. I love the smells that are in the kitchen right now! It smell like I baked homemade bread and cake while sipping on tea and eating berries and cream! lol.
Next post will have the 2 batches of soaps. I promise! I have to share, I just do! I used some new colors(well to me anyway) and I have got to share! One batch is made with the neon colors, same colors that are on my daughters eyes in a previous post!

Looking great! Do you have any Castor oil in your lipstick? It's supposed to help with the slip.

Soapy Elephant said...

yes lots of castor oil. The lipstick is hard, I am gonna remelt to make softer.

Maybe try more liquid oils and less hard oils or waxes... not sure. At least it's fun trying things and testing how they end up.

Your description of all the candles mingled together totally made me laugh. I'll bet it smelled great! Who doesn't love "homemade bread and cake while sipping on tea and eating berries and cream"?
