Hi there, Love Bugs!
I thought I'd share with you a little D.I.Y. today. I got this idea from Koren of EnKore Make Up. In his video, he mixed his OCC Lip Tar with a lip balm to create a highly tinted lip balm. I thought it's a very practical idea for my Sleek Pout Paint since I find it tedious to apply any lip product using a brush. I always liked applying lipsticks/ lip balms straight from the tube.
What I used:
- an old sandok. (You can also use a spoon)
- white or mint lip balm
(I used Maybelline Baby lips in Mint since I love the minty feel. Kinda like the Revlon Lip Stain Balm)
- Sleek Pout Paint (any color you like)
- tissue for cleaning (it can get a little messy)
What I did:
I just melted the lip balm (I had to scrape until the bottom of the tube) and a small (25-centavo-sized) amount of Pout Paint in a sandok. Once it's melted, I poured it back into the balm tube (be sure to put tissue or newspaper underneath as this can be messy)
and popped it in the fridge for 5 - 10 minutes.

I was very surprised at the color pay off. I was expecting it to be sheer or with just a little bit of a tint but it has the same color intensity as if it was squeezed out of the tube. I love that it is now minty and easy to apply. I still have a lot left it the original tube. If you have several Pout Paints, you can also mix them up to create a whole new shade.
I hope you found this post helpful.
Thanks for dropping by!
