DIY: Crayon Lipstick!

The very first thing that comes to our mind when we see crayons is coloring. But Casey and Savannah went one step ahead and created lovely shades of lipstick. Yes! They made lipsticks out of crayons using coconut oil.

Crayon Lipstick

Method:
Place a small glass bowl in a steel bowl filled with little water. The water level should be below the neck of the glass bowl from outside. It should not enter the glass bowl. Put one tablespoon of coconut oil in the glass bowl. Heat the steel bowl on lower-medium flame. Put a small piece of crayon (cut small in about one teaspoon) in the warm coconut oil and let it dissolve and form a paste. Your lipstick is ready!

Here’ s how the duo did it – http://www.ohsoprettythediaries.com/2013/12/diy-crayon-lipstick.html
