Learn About LipStix Remix
From a holiday Consumer Products showcase, I learned about LipStix Remix. This little kit is a lipstick lover’s dream. Have you ever wished you could combine the color and traits of one beloved lipstick, with another, or you’ve tried to find a lipstick color that just doesn’t seem to be on the market? Have you ever wondered how you could fix a broken lipstick and just ended throwing it away? And have you scraped the end out a lipstick you love (or that cost more than a good lunch) out of the metal end of a lipstick tube, only to find the process so messy it wasn’t worth the effort? If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, you will cheer for LipStix Remix.
What it is: Inside a clear, zippered bag with handle (re-use as a makeup bag or a place to store hair jewelry or other little items) is a clever solution to mixing, or fixing, lipsticks. It is so simple: just mix your lipstick colors together in the included little plastic cup, microwave for no more than 45 seconds until your lipsticks have melted, and pour them into the included (and re-useable) lipstick mold. Freeze until it is hard, then place in in one of the four included black and gold lipstick tubes. You even get four gold stickers to place on the bottom of the tube(s) with your very own lipstick name! No one will ever have the same lipstick color as you do. Yours are guaranteed one of a kind!
Get a Mold!
You can melt lipstick and freeze it in a pot and then use a lip brush, but you can’t get the bullet lipstick shape unless you have a mold for it. And, it is really messy without the right tools (trust me, I have ruined more than one lipstick and made many a mess, trying to make my own). The set includes all that you need: •1 Lipstick Mold; •4 Lipstick Tubes; •4 Mixing/Measuring Cups•4 Spatulas for cutting and mixing lipstick; •Stickers for Lipstick Tubes; •5 Stackable Storage Containers; •1 Cosmetic Bag and an Instruction Sheet.
Be creative! It is really a lot of fun. This would make the perfect “wow”! gift for a teen or any lipstick loving friend of any age. I went literally nuts when I saw this! Even better, while it isn’t really cheap, it is still reasonable for a great gift. Remember, it makes four whole lipsticks or mends a lipstick you love (that, priceless)! With the lipstick mold you can purchase other empty lipstick tubes. Or clean out the bottom of the standard lipstick tubes you already own and re-use.
You can also use the mold to recover eye concealer from the end of the tube. Scratch off a metallic eye-shadow in your melted lipstick mixture to make a shimmery version of your favorite color. Make a lip balm by adding a bit of lip balm (e.g. Carmex® , Bert’s Bees®, ChapStick®). Try using ½ Cherry Carmex + ½ Lipstick for your own, unique, nurturing lip product that smells yummy, too!
