Finding Lip Gloss Flavors
When cosmetics are created they are enhanced with “artificial” flavor.
Sometimes it is only the perception of taste. As an example, coffee is not placed into products to make them taste like coffee.
The flavor is actually vanilla but we perceive the scent as having to do with coffee. Hence, the coffee taste.
The good news is that you can put this knowledge to work for you. You can make flavored lip gloss!

Do you love fruity tasting lip gloss? Strawberry or cherry flavor lip gloss? Or, do you prefer something more exotic like coconut? It’s possible to enhance your lip gloss with these flavors. You can find them either online or at your local hobby store. They’re usually located on the candy making isle. The flavors are condensed so it only takes several drops to change an entire lip gloss. The best part is that you can combine flavors to suit your own preferences.
How To Add Flavor
Lip gloss products are by their very nature easy to add flavor to. If you make lip gloss at home then add the flavor after you have melted the products and mixed them together. It is the last step before pouring them into the container.
- If you have a creamy product already – lip balm – then add a few drops and simply mix with a little toothpick to distribute it evenly. Lip balms are the easiest makeup product to add flavoring to.
- What if you have a product in a tube? There are two ways to add flavor. You can remove the applicator, take a plastic pipette and insert the liquid into the tube. Then put the applicator back in and “pump” the product to mix.
- The other way is to take the applicator out. Wipe off the product and rinse it. Squeeze out the excess water. Take the dry applicator and pour a few drops of flavor on it. Then put the applicator back into the container and mix. It may take several times in order to get enough flavor on it.
It’s not difficult to flavor lip gloss. Flavorings are used in most lip care products. There’s no reason why you can’t use them in yours, too! Don’t put up with bland lip gloss. Whether you love strawberry or peppermint there’s a flavor out there for you!
