Can you put lip balm in a lipstick tube?
Take your empty lipstick tube and twist it so that the inner tube that actually holds the lipstick is as far down as it can go. Carefully pour the mixture in. TIP: Pour any extra liquid into an old lip balm container, or an old Altoids tin.
What can I do with used lip balm tubes?
If you have old chapstick/lip balm tubes that are empty laying around, then you can use an eye dropper to fill them back up, or you can try and pour them if you’re feeling adventurous or like to clean. I actually kind of want these since they’re really cute.
Can you make lipstick with lip balm base?
Anything that is oil-soluble can be added to lip balm base. Never add anything water-based, as it will separate out from the lip balm. Some additives include: Flavor Oils – Flavor oils are used in flavoring lip balms, lip-gloss, and lipstick.
Which is better lip balm or lipstick?
Lip balm is generally clear (colorless) or has a sheer wash of color. Lipstick, while it can also be sheer, has a more concentrated color payoff. This provides a soft, velvety, almost wet-look to the lips. Balm is the perfect choice for a no-makeup makeup look or to balance out an extreme eye look.

Should you put on lip balm before lipstick?
Yes, lip balm can help moisturize your mouth, but you should remove all the residue before you put on your product. The oils in the balm create a slippery base for lipstick, meaning your shade is more likely to feather and smear. Instead, put on your favorite balm as you do your skincare routine.
Should I apply lip balm before matte lipstick?
Just like you prep your face before putting on makeup, you should also prep your lips to get the most out of your liquid matte lipstick. Lip balms not only keep your lips feeling moisturized, but they also help to fill in any cracks that you might have in your lips.
