Sheer Lipstick

2 oz. beeswax
2 oz. Grapeseed Oil
1/4 oz. Wheatgerm Oil
2 tsp. Zinc Oxide (by volume - optional - may substitute titanium dioxide)
4 tsp. lip safe mica (by volume)

The zinc oxide will provide a opaque, matte effect to your lipstick. If you use just mica, you will have a more sheer lip balm.

Melt the beeswax in a double boiler. Once fully melted, add the Grapeseed and Wheatgerm oil. Pour your colorant into the double boiler and stir well. Let this mixture sit until mixture begins to thicken slightly (thus suspending the colorant better) and pour into jars or tubes
