Afterburn Lip Balm

Lise

When I tested this lip balm with my own handcrafted chili-infused oil for the first time, I expected to feel like my lips were on fire, but there was no immediate heat.

Instead, it crept up quite slowly and increased in strength until there was no question in my mind: this lip balm was destined to be named Afterburn.

This lip balm is 100% plant-based - even the color - which is the result of a combination of oils infused with Turkish Paprika and Chili Peppers.

Coffee Scrub Ingredients

Lise

Coffee beans can quickly become a great addition to an exfoliating scrub by simply grinding the roasted (unused) beans and adding them to your body scrub.

Pair the grounds with salt, sugar or another dissolving exfoliating ingredient to keep staining at a minimum.

Pictured here: a paste of coffee grounds and sweet almond oil. This is the remains of an infusion I made to make a decadently scented coffee and brown sugar exfoliating body scrub as an extra little gift for a steady client.

Preservative Free Aqueous Lip Stain

Lise

LisaLise-PRESFREELIPGLOSS.jpg

Here’s a fun little exercise in Hurdle Technology that has turned out quite successfully in the first few batches: a plant-based aqueous lip stain with adequate color that is preservative free.

If you can recognize the dried plants at the top, are, you’ll know what one of the components are.

Testing is still ongoing, but I will reveal this: not only does this lip stain moisturize well, it even tastes good.

Red Lip Gloss - A Work in Progress

Lise

Here’s a peek at a work in progress: lip gloss.

This is part of an ongoing project: to create a series of plant-based make-up products. The pictured gloss has been performing quite well, but the plant colorants in this product have been mixed with a few mineral based colorants to punch up the color.

The color is not quite as bright red when applied, but then, this was meant to be a tint. Getting a red this ‘punchy’ with pure plant colorants is possible, but not in every type of make-up product,

Meantime, somebody’s having fun testing makeup.

Plant Pigments in Shades of Red

Lise

Here is a selection of hand-mixed plant pigments in different combinations. I have been stability testing these during the past few months.

Some of these colors are stable, and some morph into an unrecognizable shade of boring as soon as they are applied to skin - or after they have been applied to skin and water (such as sweat) is introduced to the mix.

Chamomile Infusion

Chamomile is a long time favorite in the LisaLise Lab. Here's an oil infusion with dried chamomile flowers that have the most glorious light scent. It is times like these I pine for a sniff button when posting something. You're just going to have to trust me that this smells good enough to drink. 

The oil is going to be used in a special order elixir placed by a regular client who is just as in love with chamomile as I am.
