DIY Pillbox Lipstick Palette

A Do-It-Yourself Holiday Gift: Pillbox Lip Palette

What's bigger than a breadbox — er, pillbox? Why, a pillbox filled with some awesome lipstick shades — all chosen by you, of course. If you're on a budget for the holidays, why not go the route of DIY by making friends and family their own lipstick palettes?

Here's what you'll need:

  • A pillbox — Try this festive green Inventures Product Pill Box ($4.99) or head over to your local drugstore to seek out varieties that cost even less.
  • Inexpensive lipsticks — Seven or more, depending on how customized you want to get and how many palettes you want to gift. Pick a few neutral colors and some bold or unexpected ones, too. I recommend NYC lipsticks or Wet 'n' Wild Silk Finish Lipsticks ($1.16). Try to choose colors that fit your friend's own unique personality and shades that correspond with days of the week. Saturday deserves a bold red, don't you think?
  • A cutting object — A butter knife will do.
  • A microwave — To melt the lipsticks down.

To see how to make 'em,

First, lop off your chosen shade and drop it in whichever slot you'd like. You'll probably be able to get two to three uses per lipstick, so eyeball accordingly. Fill in each slot with a different color. When you're done, it's time to nuke it — in about 10-second increments. The point is for the lipstick shades to settle into their new space by molding to the shape of the pill box. No bubbling liquid hot magma, mmkay?

While your loved ones can always use their fingers to dip into their new treat, consider tying a lip brush to the box, too. Also, if you're not feeling the whole "days of the week" theme, try decorating the pill box with stickers, and have some fun!
