macaron lip gloss

“Macaron lip gloss that only takes a minute to make? Are you for real, you say?”

Indeed, we are! Not only do these cuties take only a minute to make, they are inexpensive!

When my daughter discovered adorable macaron containers on Etsy that can be used for homemade lip gloss and lip balm, I knew instantly that they would make perfect bridal shower favors – especially for a spa themed bridal shower.

Filling them with homemade lip gloss is a breeze. We created pink lemonade lip gloss for our macarons. Here’s what you will need to make this one-minute lip gloss:

  • White unscented petroleum jelly
  • food coloring
  • flavor (we used lemon oil and raspberry flavor)
  • Macaron containers (there are several Etsy stores that sell them, including this one.)

Place two tablespoons of petroleum jelly into a bowl. (This will fill 3-4 macaron containers.)
