Cinnamon Sugar All-Over Color Balm

This tale of creation begins with a recipe that embarked on one path but veered onto another, resulting in a product far superior than initially intended. I set off to craft a concealer but alas, it morphed into a hue too dark and bronzed for my fair complexion. However, the captivating color struck a chord and I couldn't bear to squander my precious hour of formulation, nor the ingredients I'd lovingly gathered. In a stroke of inspiration, I infused TKB Cinnamon Sugar Mica powder into my blend of dry ingredients, and there it was - an exquisite all-over color balm had taken form! This versatile beauty will serve as a bronzer, lip hue, cheek tint, and an eyelid gloss in my beauty repertoire.

Here it is swatched on my arm in the sun. The most gorgeous nude/peach/bronze/caramel color that is perfect for all skin colors!

 For the dry ingredients you will need:

8 grams Sericite Mica
8 grams Titanium Dioxide
0.10 grams White Cosmetic Clay
0.05 grams Magnesium Sterate
0.3 grams yellow oxide
0.08 grams red oxide (red shade)
0.015 grams black oxide
1.25 grams TKB Cinnamon Sugar

I added the TKB Cinnamon Sugar which is a blend of mica, titanium dioxide, tin oxide and iron oxide. It is so beautiful and imparts a beautiful and subtle glow.

Wear a dust mask and grind the pigments together for about 5 minutes. I have a mortar and pestle with a cover to avoid too much dust from getting into the air.

Gorgeous color!!

Now you need to make the wax/oil base. You will need:

3 grams Cera Bellina wax (you can substitute beeswax)
3 grams Carnauba wax
10 grams Shea Butter (refined)
10 grams Shea Nut Oil
1 gram Vitamin E Oil

Place the ingredients into a small glass bowl and place the bowl in a few inches of simmering water. Melt the ingredients together. Remove from heat, but keep the glass bowl in the hot water because it keeps the ingredients melted while you blend.

Pour the dry pigment powder into the bowl of melted wax/oil. Stir for about 4 minutes to fully blend the mixture smoothly together.

Transfer to a 1-ounce glass or metal container. Allow to harden at room temp.

Has a soft degree of subtle shimmer!
