Lipstick from Crayons

This lipstick recipe may be a bit shocking at first, but the result is fantastic and it is one of my favourite recipes! You may be scared and think that using crayons is bizarre and crazy, but I can assure you that crayons have terrific pigmentation, they are non-toxic and the wax in them contributes to smoother lips. This recipe is so easy that you may not expect much, but you’ll be surprised! Plus, you can make absolutely any colour lipstick you want, as long as you find your desired crayon colour!

Basic Ingredients:

- Petroleum jelly (Vaseline)

- A crayon, any colour you like

Optional ingredients:

-Vitamin E oil/gel cap


-Small travel jars (can be purchased at the dollar store) or empty makeup containers to store your lipstick

-Small knife


-Microwaveable bowl, preferably ceramic or glass


-Oven mitts

-Stirring stick



1.       Remove the paper from the crayon, then using your knife, cut the crayon in half and put one half away.

2.       Finely chop the crayon, and place the bits into the bowl.

3.       Spoon out 1 teaspoon of petroleum jelly into the bowl, then mix it with the bits of crayon. Optional: Add a few drops of Vitamin E oil or use the knife to cut a slit into the gel cap and squeeze the oil in. This will provide extra softness and shine.

4.       Put the mixture into the microwave for 3 minutes or until it is melted. Carefully take the bowl out with your oven mitts on; the bowl will be hot!

5.       Act fast, or the mixture will harden! Take your stirring stick and mix well, then spoon the liquid lipstick into your container. Wait a few seconds until the mixture hardens, then apply your new lipstick! Tip: you may need to rub your lips together a couple more times than with store-bought lipstick to evenly disperse the product.

Alternate Recipe: Shea Butter, Castor Oil and Crayons

For those of you that don’t like the feeling of petroleum jelly on your lips, here’s an alternate recipe! Both recipes have the same/similiar result and the colours are both as pigmented.

Basic Ingredients:

- Shea butter

-Castor oil (if you don’t have castor oil, choose another carrier oil)

- A crayon, any colour you like


Refer to main recipe.


Refer to main recipe, but for step 3, instead of petroleum jelly and Vitamin E oil, spoon out a ½ tablespoon of Shea butter and a ½ tablespoon of castor oil into the bowl, then mix it with the bits of crayon.
