DIY Tinted Lip Balm

Roll the lip balm all the way out of the tube and use a knife to cut it off into a microwavable container. Roll out a little bit of lipstick and cut off a chunk to add to the lip balm. The more lipstick you use, the more opaque the color of your finished lip balm will be.

DIY Tinted Lip Balm

Microwave the lip balm and lipstick mixture for 30 seconds; stir and repeat until they are completely melted together. Roll the empty lip balm containers back down and pour the mixture into them. Let stand until the lip balm comes back to room temperature and hardens.
