The only things that we did differently had to do with the quantity we were making. Since there were three of us and we all wanted samples of the same colors, we decided to make large batches of each color. To get three (mostly) full jars of each color, we combined two whole crayons with apx. 2 tsps of coconut oil. Also, since my only Pyrex measuring cup holds 4 cups, we decided that we needed a smaller container to melt and mix in. We used a shot glass and a mini glass gravy boat, both of which worked well.
- If you are doing this project with a group of friends, I highly recommend getting a large box of crayons. By the time we made 9 batches of lip balm, we had pretty much exhausted the reds, oranges, and purples in the Crayola 64 Box.
- Since there was a warning in the original post that the tinted lip balm could be a little messy to apply with a finger, I picked up some $1 e.l.f. makeup brushes. Great decision! That allowed us to try out the lip balms right away!
- Do it! Now I have 9 lip colors to try out and most of them are bold colors I would not have bought individually. Below are photos of three of the colors we made to prove that they look as great on the lips as they do in the jars. (And if you're wondering, the lip balm does NOT taste like crayon or even really like coconut. It actually has less of a taste than most drugstore brands of lip balm!)
