The Sustainable DIY: Make Your Own Organic Lipstick Packaging


When it comes to cosmetics, the packaging is an important part of the equation. Not only do we want our products to look good and be easy to use, but we also want them to be environmentally friendly. Luckily, there are many ways to make your own organic lipstick packaging without having to go through a manufacturing process. In this blog post, we will explore some of the most sustainable methods for doing so. From using recycled materials to creating your own packaging supplies, you’ll be able to create eco-friendly lipstick packaging without breaking the bank.

What You’ll Need

To make your own organic lipstick box packaging, you’ll need a few supplies: a lip balm container, a label maker (or a computer with graphics capabilities), and some sturdy paper tubing.

Before you get started, make sure that the lip balm you’re using is safe for cosmetic use. Some ingredients can be harmful if they get into your eyes or skin. Choose a lip balm that is formulated with natural ingredients and avoid those with synthetic fragrances or colors.

To make your own lipstick boxes, start by finding an empty lip balm container. If the container doesn’t have a lid, simply cut off the top so that it’s about 1 inch shorter than the width of the tube you want to create. You’ll also need to access the inside of the lip balm tube by removing one endcap. Once you’ve removed the endcap, insert a piece of sturdy paper tubing into the tube until it comes halfway out of the lid (the opposite end from where you inserted the tubing). Using your label maker or computer, print out your desired label template onto white paper and cut it out. Place the label on top of the tubing in the lip balm container and gently press down so that it adheres to both surfaces.

How to Make Your Lipstick Packaging

DIY organic lipstick packaging is easy and affordable. Here’s how to make your own:

1. Gather materials. You will need a lip balm, some plastic wrap, and a Sharpie or a label maker.

2. Label the lip balm. Write the name of the product, the ingredients, and the date on top of the lip balm tube. Leave enough room at the top for you to write down your recipe information.

3. Wrap the lip balm tube in plastic wrap. Make sure that the plastic wrap is tightly fitted around the lip balm tube so that no air can get into it.

4. Mark where to cut the plastic wrap with a Sharpie or a label maker. Cut just below where you marked on the plastic wrap, then remove both pieces of plastic wrap together.

5. Write down your recipe information on another piece of paper and place it inside of the lipstick tube after you’ve removed it from the packaging material.

What to Do if Your Lipstick Doesn’t Stick Well

If your lipstick doesn’t stick well to your lips, there are a few things you can do to improve the situation. First, try different lipsticks. Some lipsticks are formulated to be stickier than others. Second, make sure that you’re applying your lipstick correctly. Make sure that you’re lining your lips up evenly and making sure that the lipstick is fully applied before moving on to the next section of your lip. Finally, keep in mind that weather conditions can affect how well your lipstick will adhere to your skin. If it’s cold or dry out, your lipstick may be less likely to stick. On the other hand, if it’s hot and humid outside, your lipstick may be more likely to peel off.
