I would never have thought that lipstick could be made out of coloring crayons, but that’s exactly what this woman demonstrates in this fun DIY video.
Crayons are non-toxic and made from paraffin wax, so perfectly safe to use. And with the wide variety of colors crayons come in, she points out you can pick any number of shades to make.
As she shows, the process is really simple. You just need some containers, crayons, coconut oil and a pot with hot water and, presto, lipstick! It looks pretty cost effective too! Share this video with your friends!
Statement from Crayola:
As the manufacturer of children’s products, safety is our top priority at Crayola.
Although our products are nontoxic, we do not recommend using them to make eyeliner, lipstick or other makeup, and strongly discourage their use in this manner. The products were never intended to be used on the skin or face in this manner.
Makeup goes through specific and rigorous testing because it is intended to be used on the skin. Because they were never meant to be used as makeup, our colored pencils or crayons have not been tested in the same way and should not be used as a cosmetic. They are not designed, tested or approved for this purpose.
