Save money and make your own lip gloss! Give your lips an enhanced shine with this beautiful fruity gloss. Not only is it cheap, but it won’t take very long to make and only uses two ingredients!

What you will need

  • 2 tablespoons of solid shortening
  • 1 tablespoon of fruit-flavoured powdered drink mix (the flavour you want your lip gloss)
  • Small airtight container (you can buy empty make-up pots, or use an empty tub of moisturiser – just make sure it’s completely clean!)
  • Use of a microwave and a fridge


  1. Firstly, stir the drink mix and shortening together in a bowl until smooth.
  2. Place in microwave (make sure you use a microwave-safe bowl!) on high for up to 30 seconds or until the mix becomes a liquid. Depending on the strength of your microwave, this may take slightly longer or shorter, so keep checking it.
  3. Next, pour the mixture into your small container.
  4. Finally, put the mix into your fridge for 20-30 minutes or until it is firm.

 Your new fruity lipgloss is ready to be used! Enjoy!
