TKB Gloss Base/ Lip Gloss Calculations
TKB's Versagel is popular lip gloss base which may be used 100% as a base with no additional additives other than color! A question we get a lot is "How many Lip Glosses can I make with one of your 4 ounce bags of Versagel?" Another common question is "How much color do I add to that bag?" Well here are the answers:
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 4floz of Versagel, please also purchase about 20 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. You will make about 10 lip glosses.
Mica Powders: Between 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon (+/- 1 gram) per Lip Gloss Tube. So if you purchase 4floz of Versagel, please also purchase about 10 grams of mica powder. You can do this by buying 2 - 5 different colors in the sample size. You will be able to make 10 lip glosses.
Lip Liquids: Between 2 - 8 drops per Lip Gloss Tube. One of our 1/2floz Lip Liquids will therefore color from 30 - 100 Lip Glosses. So if you purchase 4floz of Versagel, please also purchase one 1/2floz of a Lip Liquid Color, if you want that kind of color. You will end up with 10 Lip Glosses.
