DIY All Natural Pink Berry Cream Blush and Lipstick

This cream blush is such a nice and light colour, I find it's the perfect pink for my cheeks when my skin in pasty white in the wintertime!  And of course it also doubles as a lipstick!
I've been wearing this shade for the past two months on my cheeks, I apply it just below the cheekbone, and then I apply my cream highlighter right on the cheekbones, I love how it defines my cheekbones!

Ingredients

6g Beeswax
0.5ml Vitamin E Oil (Is a natural preservative, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles)
6ml Argan Oil (Is full of vitamin E, antioxidants and essential fatty acids)
6ml Grapeseed Oil (is good for oily, acne prone skin and absorbs nicely)
5ml Shea Butter (optional for extra creaminess)
1/4 tsp Mango Alfonzo Powder (Optional,  is high in Vitamin A, C and Beta Carotine, and it is often used in formulations to prevent the formation of wrinkles and the drying of skin)
1/2 tsp Zinc Oxide
3/4 tsp Fire Red Mica
1/2 tsp Silver Mica

You could use a different blend of natural oils if you like, I just really like how these ones work on the skin (they absorb well, so hardly anything gets left on top of your skin) and they don't clog pores!
Instructions
1.  Melt first 5 ingredients in some type of double boiler system.  I use a glass Pyrex measuring cup on top of a canning jar lid (basically as a liner to keep the direct heat off the glass) inside an electric frying pan filled with about an inch of water.
If your lazy you can always just put your glass cup in the microwave for 20-30 seconds at a time, stirring between.
 2.  Stir in all of the powders to the oil/wax mixture.  
**If you want to make sure there are no lumps in your finished product, it helps to blend all the dry ingredients in a coffee grinder, or other small blender to mix all the powders and break up any lumps, before adding to the oil/wax mixture**
3.  Remove mixture from heat, and leave it for a few minutes to cool slightly.  
4.  Stir well again, and pour into containers.
This recipe will make 3-4 Lip Balm Tubes worth of cream blush/lipstick.
