2. Special products you can find online

Look online for DIY lip gloss ingredients that you don't already have. Paraffin and beeswax make for a great lip balm foundation, while several beauty brands use Versagel. This clear synthetic base is a safe and versatile product, easily mixed with powdered pigments and dyes. Search for cosmetic-grade glitters, tints, and fragrances while you're browsing, as well as castor oil, which adds a lustrous shine to your gloss. Don't forget to order lip tubes or pots. You'll also need pipettes for extracting oils from small bottles and cosmetic syringes for filling containers with your finished product.
