In this case, one will add the shea butter, vitamin E and the almond oil.

If there is need to break a piece of lipstick in the pot, then one can always use a toothpick. If it starts to harden, then one will be required to find a way of ensuring that it does not happen before mixing all the ingredients.

The penultimate step is now pouring the hot mixture in another container. This is now the lip gloss which is even ready to be poured in tubes, ready for use. The procedure is that simple and the last step in this case would be to allow it to set.

Of course there are 6 main ways in which one can make the lip gloss   and though some of the steps are generalized here, one should know them stepwise. For purposes of those who would love to know and enjoy doing it at home, please note the following.
