Let’s be honest. We all own more beauty products than our lips, cheeks, or eyes can handle. A few weeks ago, I did a massive clean out of my makeup drawer and realized that I have far too many unwanted beauty products taking up precious space. These include lipcolors that I know I would NEVER EVER wear or products that I loathe such as loose mineral eyeshadow or blush (sooo messy). Not sure what I was thinking…

I’m not the only person guilty of this, right?!

The brighter side to this madness is that I’m a little obsessed with lip balm. Dry, cracked lips just irk me! I generally moisturize my lips in the morning after showering, at night after washing my face, and about a hundred times throughout the day. It’s not neurotic behavior, I swear. 

So with all these excess beauty products, I’m sure I can create my own tinted lip balm. I mean, they’ll never go to waste…
