For those of you that know me, I was on an uncontrollable beet kick for a while. If you wanted to know any sort of fact on them, I was your girl. One thing about beets that most of us know, and have probably found out the hard way, is that they stain…very easily.
But for me, I saw this as a fun benefit, rather than an annoying misfortune. Their color is so gorgeously vibrant that I had to try making my own lip stain. The recipe I tried didn’t work to my liking but the color was definitely a success.
The recipe I tried called for making a simple syrup with the beet juice (equal parts beet juice and sugar, boiled and simmered until a syrup). Then it said to mix the syrup with vegetable glycerol and coconut oil but instead of mixing together, it stayed separate as would oil with water. I will be experimenting more until I get it right. Stay tuned. Until then, MAC Diva will have to do.
