I’m a coffee addict. Give me the smell of a coffee shop any day and I’m a happy camper! I love to drink it. I love to smell it. I love to taste it (preferably in ice cream). And now, I LOVE to gloss my lips up with it! Yes!! I’m also a lip gloss addict so this recipe totally knocks my socks off. This lip balm is so delicious I want to eat it right out of the jar (but I don’t because that’s just gross). I do, however, lick it off my lips when I use it. I just can’t help it! Opening the jar is like walking straight into Starbucks- that scent is ohhhhh so intoxicating.
You too can indulge with this easy peasy project.
