Winter Shimmer Tinted Lip Balm

 

This lip balm is delightfully shimmery and lightly tinted with red iron oxide. It smells like peppermint, but with a hint of citrus.

It gets its shimmer from silver mica and the tint from red iron oxide.

This lip balm is scented with peppermint, and pink grapefruit essential oils. I also added a few drops of this lemonade cocktail fragrance oil, which gives this tinted lip balm’s scent extra dimension.

 

This lip balm is a great stocking stuffer and is extra moisturizing, perfect for the dry winter months!

3.Let the mixture cool down a bit but continue to mix to prevent it from thickening up and to disperse the mica evenly.
