    I bet you could juice it and add it to beeswax or shea butter, then place it in an old lipstick container or purchase some online for cheap (empty lipstick container). To get different shades add more of less of the beet juice. I don’t wear lipstick…but would be a fun project to try.

    That is really cool! Does is look like “stained glass” or does it give a more solid color like traditional lipstick. What shade of color does the beet juice come out to be on the lips? This is such a great idea! I wonder if other juices could be used. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Kristy, Ya I defiantly will try that. It’s so smart. I might do a follow up piece about how that turns out. 🙂

      Hi Dorthy,

      It has a dryer texture than regular lipstick generally does that’s why it compares more to a lip stain. However, the more times you apply it the deep the color becomes. It’s kind of a rouge color. I heard that there are other things that could be used in the same way so i’ll keep you updated on any other fruits or veggies that might work in the same way. 🙂
