Last weekend, I met a family friend’s lovely girlfriend for the first time. She’s a nutritionist, so naturally I pounced on her. What are foods to absolute avoid? What do you think of that Paelo diet? What do you eat as a snack – and don’t you dare tell me carrots! I highly doubt this is how she wanted to spend her Sunday in the Hamptons, but I was relentless. She basically believes in moderation. Very little red meat. And absolutely no artificial sweeteners. I nodded in agreement (to the sweetener, not to the meat) and idiotically said: I don’t drink coffee, so that one’s easy for me. But then I realized I had just finished a Diet Coke and was working a Crystal Light. I hid the pink lemonade behind my back and continued nodding.
So what’s a girl to do with all her extra Crystal Light (because we know I’m not giving up my Diet Coke so fast)? Make it into lip gloss, of course! It took two minutes to make. Just don’t tell the nutritionist how tasty it is to eat!
Crystal Light Lip Gloss
Vaseline or Un-Petroleum Jelly
Crystal Light (I used Cherry Pomegranate and Raspberry Lemonade) (Kool-Aid apparently work as well, but I haven’t tried)
a small container (i charmed a salesperson at Sephora and they gave me a bunch of these)
a mixing tool (I used a plastic knife after my q-tip got too goopy)
Fill the empty small container with your Un-Petroleum Jelly. Add the Crystal Light. Keep adding and stirring till you have your desired color. If you put it on right away it will be exfoliating. Wait an hour and the granules will dissolve. Pucker up!
