Method
Add phase A into a glass beaker and heat to 167oF/75oC to melt the waxes, stir until uniform. Remove from the heat and add phase B. Stir well, while still liquid, pour the mixture into small lip gloss pots or into a lip palette. You can use the lip gloss as soon as it has become solid.
* You can add one or different colored micas, depending on the shade and intensity you like. Gives 18-24 lip gloss for a regular round small pot container.

Properties
Solid lip gloss for lip pots, palette, or tubes.
