Sugar Lips!

I've re-formulated my lip buff so that it's now creamier than ever! Version 1 was basically my lip balm formula with sugar mixed in. I packaged it in 1 oz pots, and I loved them. They were pretty cool...but they were too hard, and when you dug your finger in the pot, you'd end up with product and sugar clumped under your nails...



Then I got the genius idea to package them in lip balm tubes. Again, same formula, but you got significantly less product, and pouring the thick, sugary liquid was a messy p.i.a.






So, back to the lab I went. I loved the pots, but I didn't like the formula. I decided to whip the butter-shea butter to be exact-this time to get a creamy, yet, thick consistency, and VOILA...Perfection! It's not goopy or runny, but like cake frosting with a heap of sugar added. DEE-LISH! I haven't listed these yet cuz the labels are giving me a major migrane.Comes in two flavors: Buttercream Cupcake and Mint Truffle. We'll start with these, and add on:)
