We're Jazi and Danielle, and we made up our minds to make some makeup! We took a cool chemistry class where we learned about what makes cosmetics look, smell, and feel good. But our curiosity didn't end when the class did; we wanted to make our own products using everyday ingredients that you can just find at the store. So we went on the Internet and found a lip gloss formula.

Our question: Which formula makes the ultimate lip gloss?
