    Making lipstick is quite similar to making crayons. Various moisturizers, vitamin E, aloe vera, collagen, and amino acids are combined to reach a desired consistency for the cosmetic. As for the color, a variety of pigments are used. “Among them are bromo acid, D&C Red No. 21, and related dyes. Other common lipstick dyes are D&C Red No. 27 and insoluble dyes known as lakes, such as D&C Red No. 34, Calcium lake, and D&C Orange No. 17. Pink shades are made by mixing titanium dioxide with various shades of red.”
