Excellent red for lip balm

This made a vibrant red for my lip balm although I had to use much more than I was expecting to get any color to show on my lips (about 2 tsp per 1 ounce lip balm.) Mixed very well in my MP soap and turned into a vibrant orange which I was expecting from the product description.

Beautiful Mica

Does anyone read the description or look at the cold process soap picture?! Ha. I read that it goes orange, so in knowing that, I made a cold process orange fragrance soap and a Halloween type soap and it turned vibrant orange. It is the perfect Halloween/citrus color. I've also used this in bath bombs with pink grapefruit. It's the perfect color - turns to a beautiful pink that matches the scent perfectly.

What The..........

I am so angry right now!! To me Cellini Red means "red" but noooo! So, unfortunately I just wasted an entire batch of, not so cheap, solid sugar scrub. I thought it would make a nice pink color to go with the pink grapefruit FO I paired it with but it only started out red then quickly morphed into a Halloween orange color. Not cool. I love BB but this makes me feel deceived and I can't afford this hobby to begin with - yes, it's just a hobby. I don't make a dime off of anything I make. This hurts.

Hi Tina! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this color and feel deceived. As noted on this product page as well as the sample picture, our Cellini Red Lip Safe Mica does go an orange color in products. Though we love the beautiful orange this colorant morphs too! For a nice pink in your scrub I would recommend using the Coral Mica like we did for this pretty pink color in our Sweet Summer Scrub Tutorial. Rose Clay would also make a more dusty pink as seen in our Rose Clay Sugar Scrub.

Great in Balm but not Lipstick

I love the color in my lip balm but it does not turn out the same in my lipstick probably due to zinc oxide. Still searching for something like Chilli Red in lipstick. Please recommend if any.


Soaping Lesson No. 1 - read, read, and re-read the descriptions about micas that morph colors! I learned the hard way about Cellini Red Mica. I now have an orange colored peppermint soap, and I have no earthly idea what to do with it. If I ever need a vibrant orange soap, however, this is my go-to for sure!
