    Put the same amount of flavoring on top of the Vaseline. I used peanut butter here (It will NOT turn your lips brown, just a clear, shiny color). But you can use just about anything.

    After you have your ingredients in the bowl, microwave for 1 minute. If the mixture still has chunks in it, just stir and they will dissolve. Cation when taking it out of the microwave; it will be hot.

    Put Mod Podge on the container's surface and lay the paper down. Smooth out the air bubbles and put on a coat of Mod Podge over top of the paper. Let it dry.
    I used the WSJ on the front of mine.

  • How to make a lip gloss. Make A Lip Palette - Step 16
    Step 16

    Do the same for the inside of the container. Then add some strips of paper where you would like the lip gloss to sit to provide a rougher surface for the adhesive. Make sure not the Mod Podge over top of the two strips of paper.

    Step 17

    Add your lip gloss pots with Glue Dots or tape. You can also glue them. However, if you glue them , you cannot change them later on when they run out. I arranged them from lightest to darkest. You can arrange them any way you want.

    And you're done! Now you have a customizable lip palette! (This doubles as blush also.) At this point, you could also add a small mirror at the top. By the way, these make awesome gifts. I hope this tutorial wasn't too confusing!

Ohh so that's what it means. If the peanut butter is grainy won't it be...sticky??

No because it is mixed with Vaseline, which will even it out. It really depends on the brand or type of peanut butter, I think.

This is cool. I may well have to try this. You could also add a little note into the lid to say what they all are.
