Hello all I am here with Shera P. Shera P hand pours crayon lipstick! We are so excited to be doing this interview with you today!

  1. Can you tell us how you got started? I was recreating some of my favorite lipstick shades for myself and my boyfriend suggested selling them. I was very reluctant, but figured ‘what the heck – just go for it’. So I did. And I’m glad I did because I really enjoy coming up with new colors and methodically hand pouring each tube. It’s kinda relaxing.
  2. What ingredients do use to make the lipsticks? I use nontoxic crayons for pigment, castor oil and cocoa butter for moisture, and sometimes an organic essential oil for fragrance.
  3. What colors do they come in? Right now, I’m offering a red, pink, nude, orange, 2 purples, and black. But I’m currently developing some neons as well as colors with sparkles in them.
  4. What inspired you to make your own lipsticks? Funny story. Someone gave me a set of NARS lip colors for my birthday and I absolutely LOVED them all so much. When I used them all up, I couldn't find the colors that I’d fallen in love with so I began to research how to make my own from common items. Once I discovered that I could use crayons, all of my dreams came true because I could then not only re-create my favorite colors, but I could also develop more colors to add to my collection.

    1. When did you begin making lipsticks? I started about a month ago and things just took off. Now I sell online, in person, and at craft fairs.
    2. Do you have any make-up tips? Yes! Always, always, always experiment. You never know what you’ll discover when trying something new – be it a new method, a new color, or a new product. You may find something that you can’t believe you ever lived without!
    3. Where can we go online to purchase your lipsticks?  Come by and take a look, say hi, & be inspired!

    Thank you so much for this interview, I wish you great luck with your business and thank you again.
