Take half a tablespoon of Vaseline Pure Skin Jelly Original and coconut oil each in a small bowl and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Take it out and mix. Scrape out the leftover lipstick from the case and put it the Vaseline mixture. Mix the lipstick with the oil and Vaseline with a toothpick so that the mixture is nicely pigmented. Transfer this into an empty lip balm case or a chapstick. Close it and let it set for a day. Use this DIY tinted lip balm every day for smooth, soft and gorgeous lips.
