Part 07: Recipe: Sheer Lip Color
The recipes contained in this guide were formulated using small size volumetric measurements as most individuals have measuring spoons on hand. The disadvantage is that measuring solid ingredients by volume can be slightly unreliable between batches. If you have a small unit scale that is capable of measuring dry ingredients in grams, we recommend that you convert these recipes accordingly.
This recipe makes a lovely lip color that provides gentle color and shine to the lips. Using lighter colors creates an especially gentle, shimmery lip color. For richer colors, experiment with adding more mica powder. Increasing the mica does make the texture of the lip color slightly gritty (you may have experienced a gritty texture with some lipsticks). Light colored micas such as our Oriental Beige Lustre, Gemtone Sunstone, Gemtone Tan, and Gold Karat Sparkle require more mica powder for detectable color to appear on the lips.
