DIY: Tinted Lip Balm

It’s the worst when your fave lipstick starts to dry out or you drop it and it breaks! Instead of throwing it away turn it into a tinted lip balm! It’ll provide your lips with even more moisture than the original lipstick, while keeping that fabulous color you love. The Camera’s Lying provides a step by step photo tutorial that makes it even easier than you can imagine!


  • One old/broken lipstick
  • Vaseline
  • One empty pot (to put lip balm in)
  • One large metal serving spoon
  • One knife
  • One teaspoon
  • One cocktail stick


  1. Slice your lipstick off onto the serving spoon
  2. Add the same amount of Vaseline as lipstick to the spoon
  3. Light stove and hold spoon 30cm away from flame
  4. Heat until melted
  5. Stir the mixture away from the flame until combined
  6. Pour mixture into pot
  7. Put in the fridge for about 30 minutes
