DIY LIP BUTTER homemade recipe

That's my new favourite recipe for a wonderful lip butter (a little bit like the "Baby Lips", coloured and flavoured... but healthier and with just natural ingredients! xD) to make at home with few ingredients!
If you speak Italian I do recommend to watch my video: here. If you can't... no problem! :-) Just read below...

All you'll need (for 1 tube of lip butter) is:

- Natural Beeswax: 1/2 teaspoon
- Shea Butter: 1/2 teaspoon
- Cocoa Butter: 1/4 teaspoon
- Coconut Oil: 1/4 teaspoon
- Castor Oil: 1/2 teaspoon
- Vitamin E: 2 drops
- A tube or a container of your liking for the lip balm.
And if you want your butter to be flavoured & coloured:
- Natural Mica (cosmetic grade!) for colouring  (or you can use a little bit of a lipstick you like)
-  2 drops of aroma for lip gloss of your choice (of food flavouring... but it must be in OIL!)

First things first: a couple of hours (or more) before starting the preparation of your lip butter mix the mica with the castor oil and leave it to rest! This will make everything easier!
Another tip is to use a milk-frother to stir all the ingredients, and remember... you HAVE TO mix the ingredients thoroughly, milk-frother or not!

Let's start by melting the beeswax in a double boiler, and when the wax is almost melted add the shea butter, the coconut oil and the cocoa butter... stir everything while the mixture melts.
Last, when the ingredients are liquefied, add the castor oil that you have already mixed with the mica... and again stir, stir, stir!
Now remove the mixture from the heat, add the vitamin E and (if you want) the flavoured oil.
Carefully pour the mixture in your container of choice, and leave it to set for an hour (you can put it in the fridge if you want).

Ta-dah! Your lip butter is made! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

I'm quite in love with this recipe: I have ordered just yesterday a lot of mica to try new colours... I can't wait to make more and to show you the results! >_<

Line Play

Anyone playing... Line Play?!
Yeah, I know it is a really childish, easy, and somehow repetitive thing... but I can't avoid spending a little time with this game every day (especially before going to bed)! xD

Really, I don't know why, but I find it to be relaxing after a stressing day. And I love dressing up my avatar, and buying things to decorate "my house".
A few days ago I checked (after years) Fb for Pet Society and I discovered that it had been shut down... I was so sad! xD I know it is stupid... but I liked that game, and it was something that had me hooked to facebook in the first time: I logged in just to play!
And now... :(
Well, coming back to Line Play, I suppose it holds the same charm that was of Pet Society in a way.
If you are interested I'm there under the name Alracairam (like on Instagram!), so yeah... you can even "visit" me! xD

Blah Blah

So I have been away again for a long time... and the reason is that I keep struggling with a way to make this blog a place that I can *really* love.
I started it like a "beauty blog" (whatever this means), and even if I cannot stand labels... I ended up just writing lists of things I have bought without any true happiness.
This is my blog after all, but still sometimes I wonder if I can really write about everything is on my mind, or if I just have to stick to the "beauty blog" thing. Yeah, I know I have already wrote something on this subject, but... ok, it is stupid.
It's my blog. I can write whatever I want. Whatevah! xD
And this is what I'm going to do. I'll write everything will be on my mind.
I'm not telling you that you will not be anymore able to read about beauty products and blah blah. Because I will write about make-up products as well.
But... if I should feel the compulsion to write about... let's say robots, I'll do it. From now on I'll write of everything I care.
And I'm just saying this because I care for you as well; I truly hope you won't be confused by this flip. That you won't be unsettled by my course of action. Because I truly care for you, Reader! ♥ 

And I hope that the renewed version of this blog will find a place in your heart!
