  1. Hi Lola! It will solidify but remain soft enough to apply, just like a cream blush.

  2. Does this formula solidify or will it stay as cream?

  3. Hi Michelle! Yes, you would add the oils during the double boil phase. Just use caution with how much oil you use because the more liquid oil that is added, the blush will not set up/harden. Enjoy!

  4. Im so excited to try this. ive also purchased some oils like rosehip oil and apricot kernel oil etc. to add to the mixture. at what point would I add these oils? will still in the double boiler? thanks!

  5. Hi Diya,

    Since there is aloe vera juice in this product, along with shea butter, it must have an emulsifier to blend the water-based aloe and the shea butter (oil) together. Otherwise, both ingredients will separate. The only other option is to only use shea butter and a natural colorant, without using aloe and the emulsifier. I hope this information helps!

    All my best,


  6. Hey Heather,
    What could you use to substitute vegetable based emulsifying wax?

  7. Hi Pia! So sorry for the delay. I think when our website updated, your comment was lost in internet land. When Maria commented today, I saw your post. You can definitely try other natural colorants, but you will need to do some testing. Cocoa powder is great for the skin in a mask but you will need to see how your skin does if it is applied and not removed within 10-20 minutes, as you would with a mask. Give it a try and let us know what you come up with!

  8. Hi Maria! You sure can. The consistency will be much different though. What we suggest is to make very small batches, always use clean hands when applying and you can even store in the fridge for a longer shelf life. Thanks for the comment and enjoy!

  9. Can you use glycerin instead of aloe vera? I try to avoid using aloe vera for products that I want to last a long time. Fresh aloe vera has a lot of preservation needs and a short shelf life, while store bought aloe vera has preservatives that defeat the purpose of using it as an ingredient for natural DIY anything.

  10. Thanks for the blog! Do you recommend an ingredient we can add to the pigments to change the color tones? I’ve seen that people add cocoa powder. Would it be ok to do the same with your recipe?

  11. Hi Kate!

    Unfortunately, in this recipe, you cannot. Water/aloe and oil do not mix which is why you need an emulsifier, which combines them together. You can try adjusting the recipe by using all shea butter but the end result will be oily and super shiny. I hope this information helps!

    All my best,

  12. Can you use bees wax instead of the other wax? And can this be for stick forms of blush/lip sticks?
