TKB's Gloss Base is popular lip gloss base which may be used 100% as a base with no additional additives other than color!

Please note that quantities are estimated and not guaranteed to be 100% accurate. Intended for reference only.
Regarding Color, it will depend on how intense you want the product to be. We recommend three types of color: Glitter Powders, Mica Powders and Our Lip Liquids (Liquid Dyes and pigments),. Here are our recommendations:
Glitter Powders: Between 1/2 - 1 teaspoon (1 - 2 grams) per Lip Gloss Tube. So if you purchase 5.5 oz of Gloss Base, please also purchase about 30 grams of mica powder. You can do this by buying one 1-ounce size or an assortment of colors in sample size, about 5 -10 of those.
Mica Powders: Between 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon (+/- 1 gram) per Lip Gloss Tube. So if you purchase 5.oz of Gloss Base, please also purchase about 20 grams of mica powder. You can do this by buying 2 - 5 different colors in the sample size.
Lip Liquids: Between 2 - 8 drops per Lip Gloss Tube. 1floz Lip Liquids will therefore color from 60-100 Lip Glosses. So if you purchase 5.5 oz. of Gloss Base, please also purchase one 1floz of a Lip Liquid Color, if you want that kind of color. Don't use all of the color in that bag, maybe about 1/6th of a bottle, and then add more drop by drop.
