Item details

Contents: Castor oil, triglyceride, polyisobutene, isoeicosane, candelilla wax, ozokerite wax, stearyl palmitate, microcrystalline wax, cocoa butter, vitamin E acetate, vitamin E tocopherol, L-ascorbyl palmitate. 3.5oz/100g of the base gives about 17-22 lipsticks.

Instructions for Making 3 Lipsticks: Add 12.5g (2 1/2 tsp) of the base to a disinfected glass jar. Melt the base in a hot water bath (max.150F/66C). Add pigments (14% of 12.5g = ¾ - 1 tsp) to achieve desired color & stir. Pour mixture into a mold (grease first with oil). Let lipstick harden in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Remove lipstick from the mold & stick it carefully into a lipstick holder.

Appearance: Yellowish smooth paste, faint odor.

Properties: The finished lipstick has excellent refatting & moisturizing properties protecting from dehydrating.

Applications: For making lipsticks, lip balms (as sticks or pastes), solid lip glosses.

Average review
I love my homemade lipstick this base is to soft. I don't know why it won't set up right and has holes in the finished stick. Nice feel though soooo soft💄

Was pleased with this item. It was as seller described. Not a matte base, but not very overly glossy, but still more glossy than I wanted. Gave it 4 stars because I had to add kaolin clay to take away oil & make matte. Was hoping it was more of a creamy base. Would order again though, because it's not overly glossy like a base I currently order. Hoping they will eventually carry a matte base as it's hard to find at a reasonable price

Zip or postal code

We ship with various carries including FedEx, USPS (US Postal Service) and DHL. We ship with UPS only on a customer's account. Shipping charges may vary from the amount indicated by the automatic shipping calculator since the weight calculated in the website may differ from the actual package weight due to the packaging material. For more details please refer to the Shipping Page.

Pick Up Orders
Orders can be picked up at our warehouse (35318 SE Center Street, Snoqualmie) between 9am and 4pm PST. However, you still need to place your order through our website so that we can prepare your order. As our website does not offer 'Pick Up' as shipping option you'd have to pay for shipping when you place your order and we will give you a full refund. Alternatively, you can pay when you pick up your order (choose Check/Money Order on the checkout page). Before coming to our warehouse please call first at 425-292-9502 to make sure that your order is ready.


All orders are subject to pre-payment. Currently, we don't offer credit terms such as 30 net or 2/15.

Rejected Credit Card Transactions
When a transaction is declined for Address Verification Service (AVS) or Card Code Verification (CCV), the transaction may still be approved by the card issuing bank. This means that the requested funds have been placed on hold. This is not an actual charge to the credit card and the card issuing bank releases funds back to the card after the authorization expires (usually within a few days depending on the credit card issuing bank). If requested, a hold can potentially be voided by contacting the customer’s credit card issuing bank. To avoid funds to be put on hold, do not re-try to process a credit card transaction that has been rejected on a first try.
