Lickety-Split Lip Gloss


1 Tblsp solid vegetable shortening

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 packet (.13 to .23 oz, or enough to make 2 quarts) unsweetened flavored powdered drink mix, such as Kool-Aid
1/4 teaspoon hot water

Step 1: Combine the shortening and honey in a small bowl.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, stirr together the drink mix and water until the powder is dissolved.
Step 3: Stir the water mixture a drop or two at a time into the base mixture, until the gloss is colored and scented to your liking.

The kids and I went to the CASA fair here in Sioux Falls and one of the booths had this same recipe/activity. It's neat.

Btw, did that woman get stung by a hundred wasps on the lips or is that a results of really bad collagen injections? LOL
