DIY Mica Tinted Lip Balm
Our DIY Mica Tinted Lip Balm is a fun and easy craft that you can change up and make different every time. When we made it this time, we chose a pink mica powder. You can choose any color you like and get as bold and crazy as you want with it. After all, it’s just lip balm, so get wild if you feel like it. We also went with peppermint oil, but this is also something that you can totally change up. Some of my favorite oils to use are coconut, mint or vanilla when making this DIY Mica Tinted Lip Balm. If you’ve never bought empty lip balm tubes, you may be wondering where do you even get these. I just order them online. They are very inexpensive and you can even get them in different colors! These also make great little gifts! Make a few tubes using the receivers favorite scent and package them up cute and simple!
