Back in January, I blogged about my homemade deodorant experiment (inspired by Oh Dear Drea), and it really inspired a new hobby. Oh so slowly, I’ll be replacing all my beauty products (of which there aren’t actually that many) with DIY varieties. I’ve already bought supplies for homemade lip balm (stay tuned for that), and have lotion and conditioner on my radar. What I had NOT thought of was mascara. But I was reading Green Wake’s Safer Cosmetics product review of Coastal Classic Creations mascara and started thinking…there MUST be a DIY recipe for this out there, right?
