I Made A Custom Lipstick From Scratch

I Made A Custom Lipstick From Scratch

Hello friends! Bad makeup science is back! Wait no, not *bad* makeup science — potentially *good* makeup science! Or, at least okay makeup science.

So a few months ago while I was jonesing to melt something, I encountered this book — called Make It Up, by Marie Rayma — which details how to make pretty much every beauty and body product you can think of, custom and from scratch. And being the lipstick fiend that I am, I decided to follow one of her lipstick recipes to make myself a custom lipstick (color and base) from scratch. What do you think of my final color? What product should we tackle next?

Just a quick note re: the mask test – this video was filmed in April, which was before the mask mandates were lifted where we live!

  3. Humblebee & Me says:

    😱 OH MY GOODNESS! I think you just made my 2021, Safiya 😄 I’m so thrilled you enjoyed making your own lipstick with me and I will probably stop vibrating sometime before August. Definitely reach out if you have any questions! ❤️

    my college semester of color theory is screaming at this video

    For Safiya’s and Tyler’s wonder; Noob is still very much used as a term.

    • Eventide says:

      Both “noob” and “newb” actually. Same pronunciation different meanings (typically). Noob is typically someone that *should* be experienced but isn’t. Newb is someone actually new to something.

  6. Isabelle says:

    If Safiya ever makes her own lipstick brand the world will explode.
    She can be the Cristine of lipstick.

  7. Stephanie says:

    So like… How long until she mixes every color of pigment together lol

    • Lux0rd says:

      Imagine trying to do that math.
      (Though I guess you could try and just make one big mixture in a coffee grinder to mix it properly then measure out the right amount)

    • Aoife Gallagher says:

      Imagine if she mixes all the lip balms

    ~fun~ fact: jojoba “oil” isn’t actually an oil it’s more like a plant wax that’s liquid at room temp that’s why it’s so shelf-stable, it won’t actually go rancid in the way that oils do.

    • Valentina Carella says:

      ohh kinda like coconut oil then!? do you think it could be substituted? mmmh

    • Shelby says:

      Also in terms of Candelilla wax is one of the worst made and exploited products for makeup use. The working conditions to create it are deadly and many lose limbs and their lives from the acids used to make it without protection given to them. Here is a part from a documentary focusing on the makeup industry and where ingredients come from https://youtu.be/-rV7F6zZI-c

      We love fun facts

  9. Tássia Eugênia Bagdonas says:

    It’s so funny the way u guys pronounce “jojoba”, it sounds like Santa would “HOHOBA” 😂😂😂
