Hi!
This might be out of your scope, but I would like to experiment with lip color.

Here are my crazy questions:

1) Could I use your lip balm as a base and add eyeshadow for pigment?  If not, what base  would you suggest?
I have many unused eyeshadows and I have seem pro makeup artists put shadows on top of lipstick.

2) For lipsticks that have aged and have become dry, could I add an oil to them and create more of a lip gloss?
Would this require a type of dimethecone?  If so, do you sell any of the "cones"?

Thanks a ton!!

Not crazy at all.

You could use the lip balm and/or the liquid crystal or the liquid rainbow, for lips and eye shadows.

You could use silicones, like the Monistat anti-chafing gel, but by using our liquid crystal you get the extra nutrition.

Have fun!

Hi Sharron, as a make up artist, I just want to caution you to make sure your eyeshadow isn't over 2 years old, if possible you should review the ingredients in it and decide if its safe to use on your lips because you will be ingesting it whenever you eat or drink with your new lip balm on.  Also, has your eyeshadow been exposed to the air for long periods of time?   Health first!

Yeah, lipsticks that are dry and old should probably be tossed as well.  I feel your pain with not wanting to throw away a favorite color but they can go pretty gross and rancid.
