Taking the basic chocolate recipe one step further, I tried White Sparkle Shimmer mica in the recipe to add texture and color. The mica mixed in easily. The recipe took a full 10% mica to show any color difference. With a dash of red, the color would be wearable on my washed out pale skin. On the lips, the brown color isn’t very deep or shocking, despite how the photograph looks.
The top kiss is a 2:1:1 ratio (2 parts chocolate:1 part beeswax:1 part jojoba).
The bottom kiss has 10% White Mica added to it.
This is a photo of the chocolate lip balm wiped off. It leaves just a tint of color.
Tomorrow’s post will have the final day including recipes for the winning Choco Balm!
Today … I’m working on it now, while talking on the phone to a GM/Beeswax soapmaker that’s having some problems with her soap.
