    You might as well call winter the season of chapped lips.


    It's not cute. Here's just the solution.

    1. Get the goods...

    * Coconut oil

    * Microwave-safe bowl

    * Nontoxic crayons

    * Spoon

    * Empty containers

    2. Microwave 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl for about a minute, or until it is completely melted.

    If you want the color be to be more sheer, add a tad more oil. If you like your lipstick to be more pigmented, use less.

    3. Unwrap a crayon and break it into small pieces.

    Smaller chunks will melt faster, so break that sucker up.

    4. Add the crayon pieces to the hot oil and stir with a plastic spoon until they are completely melted.

    If it's a bit chunky, put the mixture back in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

    5. Pour the hot crayon mixture into a clean container. These $7.99 cosmetics jars at Amazon are literally made for this kinda thing.

    Let it cool for about 5 minutes.

    6. When your gloss is solid, pucker up and apply.
