DIY Eyeshadow Balm

A few weeks ago, I shared how you can tint your own lip balm, using no special materials. Well, I also experimented with creating eyeshadow balm, and I shared my findings and instructions over at eBay. [how to make eyeshadow balm]

You can use lip balm and old eye shadows you already have on hand, or you can make a quick trip to the dollar store for some fresh ingredients. Either way, you will spend about $2 or less for 2 eye shadow balms.


  • Lip Balm in tubes (2 for $1 at the dollar store)
  • Eye Shadow (a collection of old eye shadows is fine, or $1 at the dollar store)
  • A microwaveable glass measuring cup with a pouring spout (1 cup size or less)
  • A butter knife
  • Your microwave

Total cost: $2 for 2 eye shadow balms
