How to make Beet Lip gloss.

I was checking my e-mail, and I saw an ingredient from Ideal bite New York Bite. Basically it's a website, that encourages you to do things the green way.
So in the e-mail there was an ingredient on how to make your own lip gloss.
I mean I made my own lip gloss about two summers ago. It was chocolate, and it came out good. And yes I did use it, and it tasted so good.
Anywho, their main ingredient was Beet. Who would of thought? And the good part is, it will give your lips a tint. Think about it. Instead of buying lip gloss, containing ALL those chemicals. You could make your own, and your helping the earth by doing it. Here are the ingredients, along with the directions.
